    Part 3

    The marriage of Suresh and Vanaja gets fixed and the scene opens on the eve of marriage.

    Sankaran (talking to himself): It is already 6.00 P.M, we have to start the Mappillai azhaipu (Baarath). But, where is Vanaja?

    Veena: What are you talking to yourself? Where is Vanaja, it is getting late for Mappillai azhaipu.

    Sankaran: That is what I want to know. Where is Vanaja?

    Gopalan and Lakshmi also come there.

    Gopalan: It is getting late for Mappillai azhaipu, but this Suresh is not to be seen.

    All are wondering where is Vanaja and Suresh. At that time Sharada, Vanaja's friend comes there.

    Sharada: Uncle, you are looking for Vanaja? She has taken Suresh to beauty parlour.

    Sankaran,Veena, Gopalan and Lakshmi in chorus: Suresh to beauty parlour? For what?

    Sharada laughs and tells: Vanaja wants Suresh to become fairer like Rajni Kanth in Shivaji.

    Sankaran: Oh, God! It may take ages or they may have to use emery paper and rub off his skin. He laughs.

    Right at that time Vanaja gets off the car with a fairer but shier Suresh in trail.

    Vanaja: Hi, Dad and mom, Hi, uncle and aunty. See Suresh, he has now become a good match for me.

    Sankaran: O.K, O.K. Go inside and get dressed in nice silk saree. After the mapillai azhaipu we are having Periya Nichayathartham (big engagement ceremony).

    Vanaja: No dad, I am not going to wear saree. I am going to wear pant and shirt. I am going to dance in front of the Baarath.

    Sankaran: What? You want to dance on the streets? Remember you are the bride.

    Vanaja: Nothing doing. I want to dance.

    Veena: Please allow her. If we had a son and he gets married won't we allow him to dance on the baarath.

    So, the baarath is on with Suresh wearing suit and seated in a top-less car and the procession with relatives and friends following and in front Vanaja and her friends dancing to songs like 'sirichi sirichi vantha cheena thaana doi'.

    Suresh tries to climb down from the car to join the dancing party, but his two uncles make him sit in the car telling that he is the bridegroom and should not dance and if he still wants to dance he will go to Washington in wheelchair only. They are both tall and well built. So, Suresh has to give up his ideas to join the dance party.

    After some distance, the janavasa car breaks down.

    Sankaran: O! what we are going to do now? Already it is late for the nischayathartham.

    A person in pant and shirt breaks the crowd near the car and gets underneath it.

    Sankaran: Aabathpandhavan, I hope he finishes the repair fast.

    Repair was done and the car starts. The person from beneath the car comes out.

    Sankaran catching hold of the person's hands: I am treating your hands as legs and thank you for the timely support. You know this is my daughter's marriage. Where is Vanaja? he asks nearby people.

    Vanaja: Dad, it is me who repaired the car.

    Sankaran: What? is it you? O! I could not recognize you as your face was covered with greese.

    Vanaja: That is O.K. Why there is no fireworks arranged?

    Sankaran: ' Araithuttile kalyanam and athile konjam baanvedikai nu sonnanam'.

    Vanaja: What does that mean?

    Sankaran: I just told for fun. I could not arrange since there are restrictions. I could have called a mimicry artist and asked him to produce all the fireworks sounds. You know these people are experts. They come in Sun TV's Asatha Povathu Yaaru program.O.K. go get dressed in saree. It is time for Nischyathartham.

    to be continued....

    Hi, IL-humour,

    Thanks for comparing me with Kamala Haasan and crazy mohan. Only avanga nonthu poiduvaanga ithai paartha. :-D

    Regards,

    TDU with Manjureddy

    P.S: You may wonder why I have interchanged your name with humour. Please refer Kamala's latest post in Finest post-August nominations.

    Dear sunkan,

    I am a great fan of P.G. Wodehouse. In his stories there will be so many comic twists and turns. Some of them will put Alfred Hitchkock, Agatha Christie and others as ordinary. So, the influence is there.

    Regards,

    TDU

    Hello TDU,

    I got to read all the 3 episodes of this story in one shot. Nalla nagaichuvai kalandha narration.

    I was reminded of S.Ve.Shekar's drama that used to come in those days during cable tv time. Like your serial, humor used to be part and parcel of the drama and not a stand alone.

    I guess like all other IL ites I too will look forward to the future episodes.

    Regards,
    Malathy
