    Dear All,

    Sorry for troubling you for the fourth time in a week - a week-beginning blog, PS and a week-ending blog.

    But certain things can't wait.

    Have got a couple of good news and so am in urgent need of your blessings and wishes.

    Number one, This issue of Deviyin Kanmani carries my full-length novel "Nee Enathu Innuyir" (நீ எனது இன்னுயிர்)

    I loved writing this story. And you all know the story. I am not going to say which story. But then those who read the first page of the novel will find out.

    And the beauty is this time they did not do any editing. My entire novel, 95 pages in A4 paper has come out without even a word being changed. Hats off to the Editorial Team for placing such a high confidence in my writing and proof-reading abilities (here the credit should go to my better half).

    I am indebted to my brother-in-law who is in silk saree business for giving me so many valuable inputs about the saree design and trade. Except from mentioning the name of his shop somewhere in the middle of the novel I did not do anything to express my gratitude.

    The second good news is even sweeter. Well I am known to making people cry. I write a 1000-word blog or a 5000-word episode to make my readers cry. This man used than half a paper and wrote a few lines that made me cry.
    Even that letter was not addressed to me. It was addressed to the Management of Dinamalar Varamalar.
    The man, a Tamil Teacher of SBOA Chennai, had written to them that he was so impressed by my story Oru Vipathu Oru Visaranai which appeared in Varamalar dated 3rd October 2010, that he cut out the story pages and made a student read it aloud in his class. The story had an impact on the students, he writes with a glee. And he goes on to add that he has selected the story as the best story of the year and is awarding Rs. 500. (He had enclosed a signed cheque with the name left blank). Dinamalar forwarded the letter to me.

    I wrote back to the kind man acknowledging the receipt of the Sakithya Academy Award and a cash prize of Rs. 5 crores. Yes, to me the letter and the cheque appeared like them.

    Needless to say that the second news made me happier than the first.

    I am now sharing the news with you, seeking your kind blessings and wishes.
    I am also enclosing the cover-scans of the magazine that carries my novel.
    love,
    sridhar

    Dear Sridhar,

    Congratulations!

    As I tell you always, you are going places....

    I agree with you it was definitely the Sahithya Academy Award... I can understand how emotional you would have been.

    This story I know which you are talking of and the cover is by my favourite artist..WOW superrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Definitely this too would be a roaring success Sridhar no doubts on that. My best wishes are always there with you.

    Dear Sir,

    Many many Congratulations ..you are claiming greater glories & heights in the world of story-writing.

    Definitely even a clone of yours cannot undertake to surpass you sir!
    You are simply invincible and unbeatable.

    I'm sure even the 'Sahitya Academy' award wouldn't have given you this much of a Bliss..you do deserve this sir and more.
