My dear Sridhar, I take great pride & pleasure in starting a thread to wish you a very happy birthday tomorrow, on 29th April. Taking care to turn only 28 every year is a very rare feat ! You have been accomplishing it successfully ! Now, with your articles on self-motivation appearing every Sunday in Varamalar, your popularity has soared in Madurai, as mentioned to me by my nephew. The student crowd in your lecture recently, was ample proof. Accolades thronging you in every sphere – pray God, becomes a regular feature in your life. It is no mean achievement & I rightly feel very proud of you, my close friend. The grapevine tells me (you are yet to share with me, though!) that two more of your books will be released in the next few months. We are generally human in our interactions, but you show that you are “humane”, which is an admirable quality in you, Sridhar. You have won the love & admiration of 6000 + I L ites. I wish you a very happy birthday & many happy returns of the day. This year your birthday coincides with our Meenakshi’s Thirukkalyanam in Madurai. Pray She blesses you & yours, with happiness, peace, prosperity & good health. Though not much older than you, I have crossed “your age” ( just recently !) & so wish you Sarvabheeshta Siddhirasthu ! Loads of love to you, Indhu & Preethi, Chithra. I am posting a photo of the Cashew Halwa, I made for your birthday – for the viewing pleasure of I L ites.
