Dear Sridhar ! You are an asset to our IndusLadies Community.You have scored over more than thousand ladies, with your thousand posts! For the past few months you have been delighting us mainly with your gripping serials . The latest one “ the Beauty And The Brain “ has fascinated everybody with the right mix of action, thrill, planning suspense and subtle hints of love. In this serial you attempt to tell the inside story and in that process bring out the truths about a celebrity's life and lifestyle. You have enjoyably moulded Sethu's character with both the old and new. The software he uses is ultra modern but his tastes are conservative. You also bring in as many nuances and novelties as possible that the story line becomes more and more interesting every week. The freedom you give us in anaysing your story, threadbare, is unbelievable ! Not one, but everyone dons the role of Subbudu ! In spite of all comments, you are gracious enough to say that in our views you see more of affection than judgement. Sridhar, as you have rightly said we expect good stories from you and not “ goody, goody” stories. We also enjoy your taking an active part in snippets and giving sane advice on family issues wherever needed, like an elder family member. In “ The anatomy of an Indian mariage” your statement that “successful marriage is not absence of conflicts but it is all about the art of living with them” is relevant in today’s context of life. In Malathi and her Mother-in-law thread, you spelt very clearly “ one basic lesson in life is that unconditional love is always a winning strategy. Iif you can love genuinely, even those who hurt you, the entire Universe and the forces of nature will conspire together to ensure that you will not be harmed.” I best enjoyed your recent participation in the “ How to pray” thread in the Religious Forum. Your concluding words in the thread “ Loving Him is liberation and it is celebration. Come let us celebrate His Greatness and love.” are very enjoyable and apt as an ending. I do hope you make your presence felt in the Religious Forum more frequently ! I can only request you to visit there & definitely not visit our Ask Chitvish to send me feedbacks – your wife may come chasing me as to why I ever gave you such an idea at all ! Ofcourse the recent visit you made there was a “ potent one” – I literally made up a new recipe ( Grape Pickle ) on your request, which has become a great hit with I L ites ! Your contributions are enormous in value when we note that you are a full time professional and I L is your enjoyable pastime. It is my special privilege and pleasure to applaud you more because we share our native place, Madurai Dear Madurai. I am very proud that we both have put our city in the top place in the I L world map. Pray our Goddess Meenakshi showers her blessings on you and your family for good health, happiness, peace and prosperity. Love & regards, Chithra.
