    Dear Sai Lalitha,
    No doubt many prostitutes get hardened by the ill-treatment they receive from the society, the police and their customers. But this lady proved to me that good resides in the most unusual places.

    I also remember an English Movie (about which my friend told; I do not see English movies because I cant understand the dialogues). I think the name of the movie is Streetwalker. The hero a rich businessman likes a prostitute, one who is literally on the streets, and starts to live with her. The dialogues they exchange, the emotions they show, are very rich. (thats what my friend told)
    One dialogue I liked the most was this:
    The business tells her in the course of conversation,
    "I do not get emotionally involved with my business or customers."
    To which the prostitute replies,
    "Nor do I."
    These simple words speak of a very profound truth and a whole book can be written about it.
    You should read Betrand Russel's Marriage and Morals, where he explains why a prostitute's life can only be pathetic.

    I came home and promptly reported the incident to my wife.
    Another strange thing I observed. The lawyer bought a very expensive saree for his wife. This was after the incident. At that time I did not have any money to buy a gift for my wife. The lawyer told me that he called the expensive saree, a sliencer. His wife on seeing the saree would not ask any uncomfortable questions about the trip.
    Though I did not buy any gift for my wife, I was happy for myself and for her and felt sorry for the lawyer's wife.

    Thanks Sai Lalitha.
    regards,

    Dear Malathi,
    I don't know what you got wrong. I did not mean to say that my wife is 23 years old. I just wanted to say that I have been married to her for 23 years. If you think that the expression I used is wrong, please correct me.
    Eagerly waiting for the Full FB

    ஒரு வேளை அவளுக்கு சுழி
    சரியில்லை என்பதாலோ?

    Every time I write a response to you I have to think fast, think deep and write with my heart in my hand. I think I might have written a couple of hundred responses to your replies. I should confess that my writing skills, my thinking abilities have improved a lot after all these responses. That way you are my mentor and Guru her in this site.
    You have raised several points in your post and I can't resist my temptation to number mine.
    01: I cannot help being astonished at all the incidents that you seem to experience first hand...[or is it that fantacy of your's?].
    No it's not a fantasy, Kamla. It's a true incident. I clearly draw a line between anecdotes and fiction. But the problem is that when I write about a real incident, people ask whether it is just my imagination. But what is worse is, when I write a fully imaginary story, people almost swear that I have written it from my experience. For instance I wrote the story Should I Tell (The Climax Contest). All my friends told me that it is a true story and that I have had with some woman colleague. I told them that I do not work for a company and I did not have a woman colleague. But they won't listen.

    02 More strange is that four adult men need to go to a vacation to a hill station. Hmmm....that in itself does not sound healthy to me. But is it not natural to take one's spouse if one is going to some place to unwind and relax????..
    I have to admit though sheepishly that I frequently go on men only vacations. My wife has been very graceful to allow me do so. I will tell you the reason. When I go with my family, though I enjoy the vacation, there is always an additional responsibility of taking care of them, of finding out eating joints to suit their finicky food habits and so on. Moreover my wife and daughter cannot take long journeys on road. Though I love being with them, it imposes a strain on my nerves. So once in a while I go with my male friends.

    03 I hope soon after your return, you shunned that lawyer and doctor friends of yours for good?!
    The lawyer friend simply walked out of my life. The Doctor friend is not as bad as him. But I have stopped going out with him. We have a business relationship.

    04 I am still shocked to read that adult and responsible men resort to such base acts as to take a prostitute with them on an innocent little vacation with friends!
    That's the real world for you. A large MNC convened a conference of its dealers and marketing executives. They imported plane loads of call girls from different parts of the world to entertain the delegates.

    I love your gimmicks.
    Thanks for the detailed response and thanks for making me think again.
    Love,

    dear sridhar,
    woman is a woman wherever she is and becomes even more conscience about her friends who chat with her, she is also very sharp with so many years of experience to look at those men like ur friend and put him in his place, i dont think u had a chance to see Amar Prem it is about a prostitute and her virtues and love for a child that gave her the asylum in her old age, wonderfully depicted with even more wonderful nos "Kuch tho log kahenge logon ka kaam hai kehna chodon bekaar ki baathon me kahin beeth na jaye raina" her client, tells her not to be so touchy, men are in the habit of pointing out all the time and if u waste ur time with these words u may loose out on a wonderful evening...very true, women and their roles are too amazing when predicted in reality than in imaginations...regards sunkan

    Dear varalotti,

    Thanks for the correction. You have proved that you are sharp not only in accounting finance, but also in accounting Tamil words. It is a typographical mistake. Ofcourse, it is because suzhi sariyillai for these ladies that they come into this profession. K. Balachandar's 'Aval Oru Thodar Kathai', Jeyakanthan's ,'Oru nadikai naadakam paarkiral' are typical examples of how ladies due to circumstances beyond their control are pushed into this.

    Regards,

    TDU

    Dear TDU,
    Sorry for pointing out the mistake. Please take it in the right sense. In Tamil spelling I am no better. I commit a lot of mistakes. (It is a big statement because I have published 5 books in Tamil)
    In fact in one of the manuscripts I have not given to my publisher, the dedicated editor called me to say that I don't know how to spell கணினி (the tamil word for computer). Throughout the book I was using the spelling கணிணி . My editor had a hearty laugh.
    Now think the suzhi you took out of the prostitute I put it in the computer. ha ha ha.
    Thanks a lot for TDU for taking my pointing out in the right sense. I know it's a typo; just wanted to play with you. Sorry.
    regards,

    HI Varalotti,

    How are you ?

    As I was reading your post , particularly the lines where your friends disclose about the surprise guest, the first thought that came to my mind, was the scenes of Panchathantram, where kamal friends surprise him with Ramyakrishnan when they gotogether on the pretext of attending an interview.

    As the movie had so much of comic sense, sure everyone who watched it might have enjoyed the concept of surprising friend with a call girl..but in reality, I understand how different and difficult it is...! It was interesting to read the experience you had meeting a prostitute..! Also, I admire your gestures to accept her as a good companion and give her enough respect despite knowing who she is...generally, not everyone would have treated her with dignity the way you did.

    Though I am well educated, have enough exposure and broad-minded (to major extent), will my conscious allow me to even talk to a call girl, I don't know...

    I think call girls and AIDS patient share one thing common with each other - they're treated like untouchable, from the society's point of view, even if they became the victims of their own helpless situation.

    Love,
    Preethi

    Varalotti Sir,
    As Preethi rightly pointed out, the first thing came into my mind while reading your first-half was the scene from the movie "Panchathanthiram".
    Certainly, God has helped you in finding out the 'real people' behind the masks. I am referring to your friends and also of the female companion. She declared herself, unknowingly, that she is a human-being too, by defending you from your friend.
    we cannot judge people by their looks or their profession. She is like 'sethil sendhamarai'.
    See how many talents are wasted just because they cannot reveal it or it might not be accepted by public.
    Nice article, Sir.

    Hello Sir,

    I understand the type of embarrassment you would have had actually when you wanted to be stress relieved.

    Mostly, people would always try to forget this type of happenings and I find this incident is evergreen in your mind.

    What was the real impact on you about this incident?

    Is that the betrayal of persons whom you believed?

    Is it the good conversation that you had about Kannadasan's poems?

    Is that the good nature of the call girl?

    And finally were you stress relieved?

    Overall I could identify 3 good hearts, Yourself, Your friend and the Woman.

    regards,

    Vanaja
