Dear Friends, Today's Varamalar carries the weekly article of our Varalotti. It is titled ஒரு பத்திரிகை நிருபரின் முதல் வேலை. Please go to Dinamalar - Varamalar Dear Sridhar, Yet another powerful "revelation", conveyed with a simple example. The correspondendent's duty is to find out the "hidden mole-hill" in any news & make a "mountain" out of it, as you rightly put. That is where, his skill lies. He should be able to portay it, without exaggeration, but subtly & suitably " magnifying" it, very enjoyably as well. In the context you have mentioned, the person has gone in search of a mole hill when there has been a glaring mountain ! He has sadly missed it !! We tend to underestimate the opportunities that come our way & love to talk about the எட்டாக் கனி ! Everybody should remember the saying வல்லவனுக்குப் புல்லும் ஆயுதம். Cannot help saying that you have the knack of beautifully expanding our usual sayings, which we take for granted ! Love, Chithra.
