Now there can be no greater Tom & Jerry expert than the person who advised Fred Quimby on the finer aspects on animation design. He is none other than the ex-Chief Creative Consultant of Metro Goldwyn Meyer -- India's greatest philosopher - Goundamani. The author of this blog, his country, and the people of his country, owe a great deal of gratitude to the great Goundan. No matter how much I write in praise of Goundamani's works, it will not suffice or do justice to the great philosopher. We are forever in servitude to the Goundan for making us understand life, religion and the way things work. Tom & Jerry's conceptualization and execution was his master plan. We, lowly humans, may think it is a big deal. However, to Him, it is just a rain drop from the clouds of his genius. Goundamani always executed Kung Fu chops on his alien friend Senthil. We know that. Lesser people make an incorrect conclusion that Senthil is in fact an mathematically error free individual and has no Gaussian noise. Senthil, like Jerry is subtly evil. Furthermore, it is not the Kung Fu Chop that people are interested in, which is really incidental and almost irrelevant, but they are interested in the context. On the 'Why does he do it'. Plus you have to add the philosophical undertones that the great Goundan brings in to all his literature papers.
In his seminal work 'Vaidehi was Waiting' (He won his 8th Pulitzer for this in 1984 and also was nominated for Nobel Literature) presented as video below - He explains, so casually, the origin of light. Light is not a simple phenomena. The difference between light source and light particles is where Sankaracharya and Ramanuja differed from Viseshya and Viseshana - bheda and abhedha -the brahman and the antaryami - the chit and achit - nirguna and sarguna brahman. But to the genius and brilliance of Goundamani it all is a simple, efficient and precise. Look at the way he explains the 'cup', the 'mandille' and light in a simple statement. Thereby reconciling not only the differences between two ancient philosophers but also in a swift motion use Sendhil to disprove Jerry. Sendhil's time immemorial dialog, which should be followed by every true disciple of science, "ithula eppadi annen eriyum. ponga annen" quickly establishes Goundan's patent over the fundametal philosophy of not just Sankara and Ramanuja but of the genius behind Tom & Jerry.
P.S: "Machanna Paaradi Machamulla aaladi" is in Bhairavi Raaga
P.S2: "All-in-All-Azhaguraja" is a patented term.
P.S3: "Pathu ruba kedaikkum" inspired Alan Greenspan's PhD economic thesis
P.S4: Even today 132 countries have a constitutional law which states that women with 'koodai' (baskets) should not be supplied buttermax light.
P.S5: It is 'buttermax light' because Goundan says so.
So without further delay, here is genius in a nutshell;
