Dear Friends, Dinamalar and SRM university conducted a massive education fair for plus two students in Madurai . Varalotti was asked to address one of the sessions on Thannambikkai for about 10 minutes. Lakshmi Sundaram Hall was fully packed with some 1200 students. 500 students were standing outside. My nephew who was an invitee to the function writes to me thus: "I saw the students looking sad earlier thinking about their future. Varalotti made them laugh, some of them rolled with laughter and then he made them think. After the meeting was over students were in a queue to get his autograph. He had spoken only for 10 minutes. But he autographed for more than 30 minutes. " Friends, I am enclosing the coverage of his speech which came in the Dinamalar for your reading pleasure in the form of pdf file. Sridhar, you have become a beacon of light for the students in Madurai by virtue of your "Valarppom Thannambikai" serial appearing every sunday in varamalar. You deserve this honour richly, for all the effort you put in your writing profession. Love, Chithra.
