How to remove or uninstall GRUB Loader in Windows 7.

Hi all
    
            I tried installing Linux and got hooked up with this innocent yet annoying GRUB loader. For those who doesn't have any idea of what the hell is GRUB Loader, here is a piece of info about it. GNU GRUB is a bootloader capable of loading a variety of free and proprietary operating systems. GRUB will work well with Linux, DOS, Windows, or BSD. GRUB stands for GRand Unified Bootloader. GRUB is dynamically configurable. This means that the user can make changes during the boot time, which include altering existing boot entries, adding new, custom entries, selecting different kernels, or modifying intrid.  This means that if your computer has a fairly modern BIOS that can access more than 8GB of hard disk space, GRUB will automatically be able to access all of it. GRUB can be run from or be installed to any device (floppy disk, hard disk, CD-ROM, USB drive, network drive) and can load operating systems from just as many locations, including network drives. It can also decompress operating system images before booting them.
      
            So, successfully I installed GRUB Loader, but don't know really how to use it. So, Whenever I start my system, instead of loading Windows, it will end up with GRUB Loader screen. It would be fun to use it, when you really know how to use it. But for me it looked like piece of shit which has to be cleaned. So, how to uninstall it. I was puzzled, searched in net for the solution. Nothing worked. Finally tried the combination and found out the solution.

STEPS TO UNINSTALL:
      1. Go to BIOS Settings and set first boot device as CDROM. Insert the Windows 7 installation/Upgrade disc in the CD drive, and then restart the computer.     
      2. You will be shown a message saying "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD. Press the key which you like the most.
      3. Setup will start and windows will load the files and will prompt a dialogue box. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
      4. You will find "Install Now" in the middle and "Repair your computer" at the left bottom. Click Repair your computer.
      5. Click the operating system that you want to repair Windows 7 in this case, and then click Next.     
      6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt which you will find it as a last option.
      7. Command prompt will open with system reserved drive with
                                      X:\Sources>    
                                      X:\Sources>Bootrec.exe/FixMbr      
Press Enter. You will see "Operation completed successfully." It won't even take a second.      
      8. And your next command will be this -
                                      X:\Sources>    
                                      X:\Sources>Bootrec.exe/FixBoot  
Press Enter. You will see "Operation completed successfully." It won't even take a second.     
      9. Reboot and set First boot device as HDD again in the BIOS Settings.

Hurrah !!! You have successfully uninstalled GRUB Loader and your windows will load automatically the next time you restart. Happy reading..

செந்தாழம் பூவில் வந்தாடும் தென்றல் (Senthazham poovil vandhaadum thendral) song lyrics and meaning

I am so astonished by the creativity of Kaviyarasu Kannadasan and the language itself. This is one of my favourite song in the tamil movie called Mullum Malarum. Wonderful movie with extraordinary music composition by famous Isaigyaani Ilayaraja sir. 
                I will try giving the exact meaning of this song which portrays how beautiful women are and you can relate to anything which comes to your mind when you read it along. Kannadasan, Ilayaraja and K.J.Yesudas, a combination that shouldn't be missed.

Song:   Senthaazham poovil vandhaadum thendral Lyrics: Kannadasan Music: Ilayaraja Singer: K.J.Jesudas
செந்தாழம் பூவில் வந்தாடும் தென்றல்  என் மீது மொதுதமா.. (x2) பூ வாசம் மேடை போடுதம்மா  பெண் போல ஜாடை பேசுதம்மா.. அம்மம்மா ஆனந்தம்.. அம்மம்மா ஆனந்தம்..
Senthaazham poovil vandhaadum thendral  En meedhu modhudhamaa.. Poo vaasam medai podudhamaa Penn pola jaadai pesudhamma.. Ammammaa aanandham.. ammammaa aanandham..
The breeze that dances over screw pine flower  comes…

English Translation of "Voda Voda " song from Mayakam Enna

Hi guys
       Too many Tamil post and my Non-Tamil readers would have really bugged up with my previous posts. Many non-tamil people who hear this song "Voda Voda Voda" from Mayakam Enna is wondering what is the exact meaning of this song. They don't know the meaning but still they enjoy it. Now read this post, know the meaning and sing it along.

       I have differentiated the original lyrics of the song in blue color and the meaning of it in the next line in red color. Here we go...

Voda voda voda thooram korayala... Running running running distance didn't get reduced... Paada paada  paada paatum mudiyala... Singing singing singing song didn't get over... Poga poga poga onum puriyala, aaga motham onum velangala... Time passing by nothing able to grasp, totally nothing understood...
Free ah suthum podhu figure illaye...
While roaming freely figure was not there... Pudicha figurum ipa free ah illaye... The figure I liked is not free now.. Kayil bat iruku ball illaye, life…

திருக்குறள் - கல்யாண பால்

நீண்ட நாட்கள் ஆகியும் பதிவை புதிப்பிக்க முடியாததற்கு வருந்துகிறேன். முந்தைய பதிவின் தொடர்ச்சியாக கல்யாண பால். இதற்கு முன் சைட் பால் மற்றும் காதல் பால் படித்திருப்பீர்கள் என நம்புகிறேன். படிகாதோற்கு இதோ இணைப்பு - http://freekillwrites.blogspot.com/2011/06/blog-post.html மற்றும் http://freekillwrites.blogspot.com/2011/08/blog-post.html . நான் எழுதும் இக்குறள் சிரிப்பதற்காகவும் மற்றும் சிந்திபதற்காக மட்டுமே.. யார் மனதையும் புண்படுத்தும் நோக்கம் இல்லை.

கல்யாண பால்
காதலில் ஜெயமென்றால் கணவன் அஃதில்லையேல் 
அடுத்தப்பெண்ணை  தேடல் ஜெயம்.

மனைவி அமைவது இறைவன் கொடுத்தவரம்
அதைமாற்றி அமைப்பவன் புத்திசாலி.

பெண்ணுக்கு கழுத்தில் ஏறும் தாளிசங்கிலி
அஃது ஆணின் மரணசங்கிலி.

ஆண் பெண் திருமணம் செய்துவிடல்
சந்தோஷம் என்பது கணவாம்.


தாரம் தாய்போற் இருப்பின் அதிர்ஷ்டம்
நாய்போற் இருப்பின் துரதிருஷடம்.

 கல்யாணம் ஆனபின் குழந்தைப்பேறு அழகு
முன்னேரே பெற்றால் அசிங்கம்.


கல்யாணம் சுவர்கத்தில் நிச்சயிக்கப்படும் ஆனபின்
வாழ்வோர் நரகத்திலே வாழ்வார்.  


தாய் தாரம் அடிதடிக்கு நடுவில்
ஆட்டநடுவராக இருத்தல் ஆபத்து.�����…
