Ideas for engaging in cultural apologetics

Handling Lonliness

Posted by samthambu on April 11, 2008

A discussion based on the Tamil movie song New York Nagaram (Sillunu Oru KAdhal)

  1. What is this song about?
  2. How do you describe lonliness? Why is facing lonliness a challenge to face? Why do you think this song describes it as torture?
  3. How does it feel to be away from family (and friends) and be caged in glass walls? What are your experiences of fighting/managing lonliness?
  4. Any dislocation brings about an emotional crisis. How do people to travel to other cities (for study or work) face this emotional crisis? Is falling in love a natural thing to do then? Is this feeling true love or time pass (just something to help deal with the emotional vacuum)?
  5. Is the perceived feelings of affection a help or an hindrance? Why? Is Love a pain-killer or a solution?
  6. What did you like about the song? Is there any take-away lessons for life?
