    Hi Vidya,

    I may have been given limited moderating powers with respect to my forum. But you are the real super moderator, green-lettered moderator of my forum.

    The statement that you are a better writer than me is as simple a fact that the sun raises in the east. The fact that you have not chosen to write does not in any way affect the veracity of the statement I made earlier.

    Absolutely no issues on that. I just wanted to tease my new moderator. In this issue may you have the last word.

    Potent words. And strangely these words furnish ample proof of my statement, that anyday, you are a better writer than me. My request to you, if you think, that it is worth your while to listen from a Mofussil Accountant, is "Just start writing."


    Agatha Christie's statement is quite chilling.

    Again thanks.

    Thanks once again.

    I want this forum to function precisely as a discussion board. Your response to my response has fulfilled my wish. Thanks.

    Regards,

    Dear Varalotti,

    Things move on fast... People change much faster.... When you go to great heights... you think more of power and authority.... They are not contended.... The millionairs has more vigour in becoming a billionaire than a normal average person to become a millionaire....

    The first time you take over a company.... then it is like a contageous diesease.... You keep trying to repeat and become the only person.... It is an addiction... The more you go up the ladder... you forget the basic values...

    I see that in this story.... Priya becoming an addict... I am Happy that atleast Madhavan retains his values and not get carried away... I can see destiny enjoying itself.... Change in characters/values/Vulture Lawyer.... Over and above suspicions... So all tools are set for Desitiny to play the game....

    I go back to the previous episodes... where the Guru tells Madhavan life is a cycle and you know where you are.... In our limelight hours... we lose sight of forewarnings or the words of wisdom.... The same is the case with these people....

    Sometimes I dont understand people... In this case both Madhavan and Priya have a created an huge empire flushed with richness and wealth... But they dont meet and have a normal happy life... meeting in between travels... What a way to live... For whose sake they are creating more and more wealth.... For kids????????????

    May be I am wrong in my understanding of life....

    Somehow or other Chitvish brings in real life people into your characters... Imagine if there was a person in reality like these characters...and they happened to read your story.... Hahahaha.... My God... I saw one english movie like that... I forgot the name of the movie... I will come back to you on that...

    Dear Veda Vyasan,

    That is perfectly true. I have known people who came from humble middle class background. But when they got on to positions of power, their behaviour, their morals, their values everything changed.

    And today if you ask me what is the most dangerous of all the drugs available in the market, my answer will not be hashish, Kanja, Ecstasy, or LSD. It is money. The desire for money. The single minded approach to garner as much money as one can, disregarding the fact that you cannot even spend a portion of it before you die.

    I remember a Zen story. A rich man died. Another person living in the town asked a Zen master,
    "How much wealth did he leave?"
    The Master answered,
    "Why, he left every thing he had. Do you think he can carry even a single penny with him in his journey after death?"

    Had Madhavan and Priya both been addicts then at least the situation would have been better for them as a couple. But now has come a time in their lives where journeys are heading in different directions.

    They are now in a car drawn by two horses, each pulling in opposite directions.

    Whatever I said about money applies with greater force to take-overs, mergers and amalgamations.

    You will say the same words when you hear about the lives of rich and famous. The point here is that even if we by chance become so rich, we should remember those words.


    Your understanding is right. But the whole world goes in the opposite direction. When you are sitting in a stationery train and the train on the next platform starts moving, you have an illusion as if your train is moving. The above sentence is uttered in such a state.

    I forgot for a moment that Chitvish lives in Chennai and have unwittingly chosen Chennai as the venue. I never knew that her son Kumar will be the Vice President of Gandhinagar Club. But you know, I samalichified that by saying that now the Chef has changed. Howzzat...

    Waiting for you to come up with that English movie.

    regards,

    Yes... I only pray to GOD that I dont change.... Though I have not changed as of now... But with so much wealth and power... One cannot say.... But I am confident that Shan will ensure whatever happens, she will see to that that family day is taken care off....

    You have to wait for 24 Hrs... Sorry to keep you waiting, as I have to go to the DVD rental shop and pull out that movie....

    Dear Veda Vyasan,
    Thanks for the reference. I shall try to get hold of the DVD. When you are engrossed with your writing and your story, at times you get an eerie feeling that what you create has an effect much more than you can even imagine.
    In a story like HE or SHE (and more so with HE) I am sort of living with the story.
    Thanks once again,
    regards,

    Hello Varalotti
    Isn't it true in real life too if someone successfully going forward there is always a villian behind them to pull them back. A nice episode .........full of suspense ............waiting to see what will happen to the love birds............will they face the bad time couragousely or will they have a good time realising the mistake soon and take precautions.
    It always happens once a person gets the taste of success don't wish to stop in between they go on going forward without realising what will happen in furture. Priya too is in one of such stage.
    Waiting for the suspense to come out................

    Hi Sridhar,

    When Madhavan asked Priya to retreat from taking over his friends Company, I was sure that the lawyer would play the tricks. I watch such games everyday, though I never participate.

    Waiting anxiously for the next stage....

    Oh Sridhar,
    My head is still reeling from the roller coaster ride- reading the episode 7. It is really faced paced and you have created such a different plot.
    It is true that we cannot know a person completely, how they will react, even though we have been together for long periods. Madhavan's reaction when Priya was trying to take over another company is proof enough.
    But tell me, earning loads of money and achieving great heights in profession at the cost of one's life, is it worth?
    If two persons who loved each other and married do not have time to even talk to each other, what kind of life it is?
    May be I am not 'so motivated' but if you could not enjoy the small pleasures of life and the money that you earn, then life would not have any meaning - at the present and also in later years.

    Hello Aruna,

    In fiction we have an advantage. The number of villains are fewer compared to real life.

    Madhavan and Priya being love birds is a statement which was true at a particular point of time. Probably when they were in Amsterdam, and till about six months after marriage. Now there is a perceptible change in them. Especially Priya is moving in a different direction leaving Madhavan far behind. Many marriages fail because nobody stays the same in a marriage. At the point of marriage, both the man and woman would have been in a perfectly romantic spot with identical likes and preferences. As days go by, as they age and mature, they tend to grow in different directions.

    Well said Aruna.

    Thanks for the post. Please pray that I should be able to get in HE 8 on time. Right now I am so busy that I cant sit down to write that episode.

    regards,
