Dear Sri Sir One of my favorites books is RK Narayan's "My life". Here he describes his childhood in Purasawalkam area. That area is familiar to me as a child; my father used to take me to th tank and showed me all the places that used to tamarind groves and mango groves where he and his friends stole fruits! I still read that book over and over relishing the moments of RK Narayan and recalling those of my dad's childhood! I also read the books Kamalamba sarithram and Padmanaban sarithram just to relive those times. My grandfather used to keep the Deepavali malars and those are only things I still have and relish! The pages are brown and brittle with age and I hope to keep them for a long time. Thank you Sir for sharing and taking me down the wonderful trip back!
