Dear Friends, This week's Varamalar if Dinamalar carries our Varalott's serial on self motivation, under the titleppnirandaram alla Please go to Dinamalar - Varamalar The literal meaning(for the benefit of those who do not know tamil), is, "any rejection is never permanent". Sridhar, I love your suggestion that one should always listen to or respect one's own inner call. But very often we lack the " guts" to do that & go on, asking the opinions or approval of others as well. I endorse your words that one should never give up. Bharathiyar's song which has become our tamil national anthem ( can I use this phrase?), being awarded third place is, I would say, a "motivating example" ! Let us not get disheartened, knowing well that, people, attitudes, ideas are all subject to change. So, what was rejected once, will be welcome with open arms ! Keep your chin up ! Love, Chithra.
