    Hello Malathy,
    Thanks a lot for visiting the book fair and buying my books.
    In fact this year I have been hearing interesting things from my publisher. When I talked to him this morning, he said, "Sridhar sir, looks like you have got a lot of women fans this year."
    I appeared surprised.
    "You see, one lady wanted to take a picture of herself with your books."
    (That was Varloo and she has posted a thread in IL milestones)
    He said another lady almost fought with him as to why Varalotti's name is not printed on the cover of Osho Book. My publisher tried to explain that as per the copyright agreement, the translator's name should not appear on the cover. And that the name is prominently displayed in the first page (called the half-title page)
    The lady would not listen.
    I can't even begin to think of repaying the kindness all of you shower on me.
    Eagerly waiting for your book-review.
    regards,

    I am quizzing you back!
    Dear Chithra,
    I asked the publisher to give the name of the lady which he refused. However his assistant gave me an encrypted message.

    Now this is a quiz for you. This is the message I got.

    Dear Sridhar,
    I admit, this is Greek & Latin to me. If it were "French", I might have tried !
    There seems to be a "secret code" about ladies between you & the assistant.
    Indhu, better beware !
    Love,
    Chithra.

    Dear Chithra,
    It's a pretty simple code over there. You can find out if you really want to.

    Dear ILites,
    Now this is a mind game. The code given in my earlier post belongs to the simplest encryption technique. Something most of us would have used when we were in schools. I will give you two days time. And if you can't find out, I'll let the cat out of the bag.
    love,

    The quiz was quite simple! I got it! It is in sentence form! and the name is in the end and it belongs to the person who provoked you to give the name!

    Dear Sridhar,
    I take a bet, it is your own code - not the shop assistant's !
    En perai correct spelling yarum sonnathaka sarithirame illai ! H is added only by you.
    Love,
    Chithra.

    My dear SriPa,

    Want to say, 'congrats', though it is very late...

    Anyways, it lead me to a nice reading of the back cover...

    Love,
    Your dear DD.
