    As Suresh and Vanaja are wondering about their friends not having shown up, slowly one by one they come. When Vanaja asked her friends anxiously why the delay they took her outside and showed where it is written ' Abhaya kuchalambal weds Srinivasa Venkataraghavn '. They say 'we were looking for Suresh weds Vanaja and we saw this and so we went searching. Vanaja calls Sankaran.

    Vanaja: Dad, what is this instead of my name they have written Abhayakuchalambal.

    Sankaran: Oh, that is why your friends came late?. What must have happened is I gave the Tamil invitation to the persons who were doind the hall decoration and in Tamil invitation we have put Abhayakuchalambal alias Vanaja and that person has taken the first name only. Let me catch hold of him and ask him to change it.

    Gopalan: Sanakaran, now there is no time as muhurtham is nearing. I will put a person at the gate who will keep announcing 'here Suresh weds Vanaja'.

    Inside, it is time for Kannonjal in which both Suresh and Vanaja are seated on a oonjal and ladies in relation to both will come and take coloured rice balls and after circling both their heads will throw them away in different directions. As it started when the first lady threw, Vanaja stretched her hands abd catches hold of the rice ball and starts eating. Everyone laughs at this and Veena advises Vanaja not to do like that. But, here Suresh and Vanaja are both hungry as no breakfast was given. After all ladies finish throwing the rice balls, Veena brings a big bowl of milk in which some fruit pieces are also put. As per tradition, both Suresh and Vanaja are fed this milk with fruit by a small spoon. As veena comes near Vanaja with the bowl, Vanaja snatches it from her hands and drinks straight from the bowl. She gives to Suresh also to drink. Veena is shocked and everyone around laugh.

    Veena advises Vanaja not to do such things.

    Next, preparations for the muhurtham of tying the thali start with the prohiths saying mantras. Vanaja laughs uncontrollably. Sankaran asks her why she is laughing. Vanaja points out how the prohith's head turns automatically facing the video camera in unison like the radar antenna turning its direction. The chief prohith asks Vanaja to sit on the lap of Sankaran so that Suresh can tie the thali. Vanja jumps happily on to the lap of Sankaran hugging him. The chief prohith laughs and says, 'Amma, you may like your daddy very much. But, if you sit like this how Suresh can tie the thali? So, sit facing me'. Vanaja sits as he told her and among loud nadaswaram and thavil Suresh ties the thali.

    So, the galatta marriage comes to an end and Suresh and Vanaja are getting ready to fly to Washington. Let us wish that they do live happily ever after.

    The end.

    Hello TDU,

    The serial is very good and the end is really funny. A new age style story, that too completely different from the usual line of stories.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Abha.

    Hi Tamil !
    Things have really moved fast during the short break i had to take ! You have Turned GOLD and you have also finished singing Gowri Kalyaanam Vaibhogamey for the Galatta Wedding ! That was a real rocking wedding and I do hope the newly weds have an equally rocking , prolonged honeymoon in Washington without any galatta sikkals in their marriage !

    And CONGRATULATIONS on turning GOLD.
    Regards and Best Wishes

    Thank you, Madhu. I am glad that you enjoyed the story. Actually, my next story (Foster mother) has turned out to be a tragic one. But, it has some interesting episodes and I am sure at the end you will like this too.

    Regards,

    TDU

    Hi TDU
    Thank you for writing down this piece of humor. I really enjoyed it and I read all the episodes at one time. (I could not visit Indusladies in the past few days for various reasons.)

    Well... at the end of the episode I almost thought that Vanaja would insist that SHE tie the thali on Suresh. :tongue Wishful thinking on my part!!!!!

    Regards
    Gayathri

    Dear Gayathri Sundar,

    Thanks for reading the story and the appreciation. Yes, I was also thinking that in the end I should bring that Vanaja too ties a thali and in fact I had the dialogues also like Vanaja asking 'well there is proof that I am married with this thali. But, where is the proof that Suresh is married?' and Sankaran and others see the logic in her question and since the ready made thali is not there, the prohith takes a thread, applies haldi on it and ties a manja kizhangu and this becomes the thali that Vanaja ties on Suresh. What had happened was as I was busy with Brain teasers game I hurriedly posted the last episode of this story and that is how it has missed. Thanks for pointing out.

    Regards,

    TDU

    TDU sir,
    I totally enjoyed reading your comedy serial. I liked the ending part too. Vanaja tying the thali on Suresh also would have been a good ending.

    Looking forward to read Foster mother.

    regards,
