stunningly beautiful - Jodie Corner !

எங்க ஊரு தேவதை - பச்சை கிளி – Jodie Corner !!


இன்று மத்திய பிராயத்தில் இருக்கும் பலருக்கு இளமை பற்றி பசுமையான மலரும் நினைவுகள் - கல்லூரி கனவுகள் இருக்கலாம்.  அறிவு ஆசான் சுஜாதா பல நூறு கதைகள் எழுதி இருந்தாலும், பலரை கவர்ந்த தலைப்பு சிறுகதை தொகுப்பு - 'ஸ்ரீரங்கத்து தேவதைகள்' - உடனே அவர் ஸ்ரீரங்கத்தில் தங்கி இருந்த சமயம் கவர்ந்த தாவணி கனவுகள் என எண்ண  வேண்டா !!  

திருச்சி ஸ்ரீரங்கத்தில் தன் சிறுவயதில் வாழ்ந்த சுஜாதா அவர்களின் அனுபவங்களின் தொகுப்பே இந்தப் புத்தகத்தில் 14 சிறுகதைகளாக அமைந்து இருக்கிறது.   ‘தேவதைகள்’ என்று சுஜாதா இந்நூலில் குறிப்பிடும் ஒவ்வொருவரும் மனிதர்கள். அவர் வளர்ந்த, வாழ்ந்த ஸ்ரீரங்கத்தில் அழியாச் சித்திரமாக மனத்தில் பதிந்து போனவர்கள்.  அது போல நான் பற்பல கிளிகளை பார்த்திருந்தாலும், இன்றைய அழகி ரொம்பவே மனதை கவர்ந்து விட்டாள்  

Parrot is the generic term which can refer to any bird which belongs to the order psittaciformes. There are about 400 species of parrots and about 160 face some threat or the other.  The one pictured here is a ‘Parakeet’.

Parakeet is a term used to describe slender bodied parrots with long tails. So all parakeets are parrots but all parrots are not parakeets.  Parakeets fall under the broader parrot umbrella, which defines all psittacines of the order Psittaciformes.   . Parrots have shorter tail feathers that are wider at the base and squared off. They also have more rounded heads but share the parrot family’s vibrant plumage.   

Understand that there are more  differences than there are similarities between the parrot and the parakeet – differences in size, appearance, and even personality.   

The rose-ringed parakeet (Psittacula krameri), also known as the ring-necked parakeet (more commonly known as the Indian ringneck parrot), is a medium-sized parrot in the genus Psittacula, of the family Psittacidae. It has disjunct native ranges in Africa and the Indian Subcontinent, and is now introduced into many other parts of the world where feral populations have established themselves and are bred for the exotic pet trade.

One of the few parrot species that have successfully adapted to living in disturbed habitats, it has withstood the onslaught of urbanisation and deforestation is this parakeet.   These parakeets have also proven themselves capable of living in a variety of climates outside their native range, and are able to survive low winter temperatures in Northern Europe

.. .. now if you are to question, why did I name her Jodie Corner – most obvious thing, is any other name could lead to wild imaginations !!  ..

When it came to discussing the Best Actress category at the 66th Evening Standard Theatre Awards in association with Garrard – reinstated after a two-year pandemic hiatus – the vote was unanimous. Veteran showbiz journalist Baz Bamigboye spoke for the whole panel when he said simply: “Jodie Comer, Jodie Comer, Jodie Comer.” The 29-year-old Liverpudlian star, best known for her mercurial performance in Killing Eve, stunned audiences in the summer with her powerhouse turn in Prima Facie.

Jodie Marie Comer  is an English actress. She has received various accolades including two British Academy Television Awards and a Primetime Emmy Award, in addition to nominations for two Golden Globe Awards, two Critics Choice Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award.  Comer rose to global prominence for her role as Oksana Astankova / Villanelle in the BBC America spy thriller Killing Eve (2018–2022) for which she received critical acclaim and won a British Academy Television Award for Best Actress and a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series.  

If you expected a pic of Jodie – well, look at the beautiful parrot once again!
