my daughter should be with me i knew you will stick to yourviewpoint and not budge an inch she is dying to study there as her dad i shouldmake her dream come true if i leave her behind now... ...what if something happens to her? i will ensure nothing untoward happens i'm not sure of that trapped within 4 walls, i don'twant her becoming another 'vasanthi'
hat's why i'm taking her with me not stagnate watching the same old faces r be a slave to tradition let her have exposure see and live in a different world let go of her study well do your work yourselfinstead of troubling dad it will be an unfamiliar place
new schoolmates, neighborsyou'll meet and befriend irrespective of what anyone tells you... ...always check with your dad first confide in your dadhowever trivial it may be listen only to him no one else on earth willwant the best for you... ...other than your parents no one else don't worry, mom

i don't know how but i have to go for my daughter's sake i've lived for my husbandand daughter for 14 long years by telling everyone my husbandand daughter are abroad... â€¦i can't stay here by myselfeven for a single day, girija parents generally ask'where did you go?' friends usually say 'long time no see' but you ask the wife 'he got up only at 10:00 a.m,and didn't even have breakfast'
'he said he'll be back homefor lunch after 2:00 p.m' she'll narrate by the hour! every wife is a witness to her husband i also wanted to be that kind of a wife and bear testimony to my husband's life even if he didn't like it! mithila feels ashamed to call me her mom he's embarrassed tointroduce me as his wife! i don't know what ihave done with my life
but i've always been true to everyone my daughter shouldn't be like me she shouldn't become another 'vasanthi' he said this and took her away i should've fallen deadwhen he said those words vasanthiâ€¦? then what was vasanthi to him? what is she in that house today? i feel ashamed, girija
i lost myself only because ithought my family was there for me but now i have no one i must find myself! everyone told me even mithila told me to check out facebook i want to see it now why do you want to rake that now? just leave it
how can it get any worse? show me the comments 'vasanthi, are you aservant or a govt servant?' 'how terrible' 'this is the real ritualof falling at one's feet' 'welcome, tamilian lady' 'vasanthi, the president is on tv' 'switch it off' '10 million people in tamil nadudrink and are steady on their feet'
'but why did you faint, vasanthi?' is this vasanthi chellamuthuof 1998 economics batch?' 'i don't think so' 'it can't be our vasanthi' collector wants to see you he came only 10 minutes ago there's a lady officer inside his cabin we've never seen her inthe department before! maybe it's an enquiry
or will they ask her todemonstrate how she fainted? collector is in there so pipe down susan...?! she's my college mate luckily, she's my friend too dress code in ourcollege was a big issue 20 of us were suspendedfor 15 days during exams one who fought with the principaland made us go back to our class...
â€¦was this vasanthi! only after this episode,i became her friend in fact, she was my inspiration i must catch up with14 years of our lives i have lots to askand even more to share leave this place at once should we leave at once? outsiders are not allowed inside leave the premises now ori'll complain to the principal
okay, go and complain susan, why get into trouble? he might actually complain 'we'll fightâ€¦we'll protest' 'dress code is our wish' we'll fightâ€¦we'll protest dress code is our wish dress code is our right in our college none of usdress in a vulgar manner
nor do we pass hurtful comments we take everything sportively if their sister or mother's sarislips or slides unexpectedly... â€¦or if their dress is transparenthow will they react, sir? they should be the ones to learnto behave without differentiating dress won't make someonea celebrity or a nonentity we cannot accept this dress code, sir where is that vasanthi? i don't know
i must search for her i thought this islife and bent backwards now i'm completely broken, susan is this vasanthi talking? i can't think of any studentwho didn't glorify you then i didn't possess half your caliber but i watched you and wantedto study and behave like you! i took you as my inspiration and i'm the chief marketing officerin a multinational corporation now
what happened to you? i can't- don't tell me clichã©s like 'ilived for my family and kids' even a mother who feeds her kidsselflessly and goes to bed hungry... â€¦is sent to an old agehome by the very same kids it's a selfish society we live in there are 5 do's a girl can do and 50 don'ts she should not do we can do the 5 which everyone likes
but can't do the 50 we dream about! that's how simple a life of a woman is since we are theanswers for everything... ...they thrive being the questions if we become the question... ...nobody will have an answer! it's okay if you arethe vasanthi no one knows but how did you turn into a vasanthiwho's being mocked by everyone? instead of just living...
...isn't it more importantto live with self-respect? don't spend your lifetime being... ...this vasanthi who dailysigns the attendance register it's natural for womento live for others but also set asidesome time just for you you need an identity of your own! if you lose yourself... ...your dreams will alsobe lost right before you you aren't like that
your dream is your signature! you can do it you definitely can in the way these girls dressand their carefree smiles... ...a 'vasanthi' is hidden i need to see that vasanthi from now on i want tosee only that vasanthi good morning, madam madam, i read it
super! you truly rock fantastic, madam what's up? everybody is praising you sky high! with good reason i'll tell you madam, my son showed it to me i felt so proud
i'll show you in facebook dear facebook friendsa big and warm hello i'm vasanthi 36 years old this is my true identity dear boys and girls in facebookwho hide their true identity... ...using suriya and nayantara'sphotos as their profile pics i'm the one who fainted wheni met the indian president i disgraced all of you and ournation to bow your heads in shame due to other prioritiesin my personal lifeâ€¦
...and because daily like all of youi couldn't afford to be in facebook â€¦let me 1st apologize forthis delay in e-meeting you even though comments and cartoonsabout me were remarkably funny... ...if i share with you the actual event ...it will help your creativejuices to flow even better! please focus your attention 100% i was waiting in the hall surrounding me were 7 black cats 4 white cats only one was a female
messages kept beepingthrough wireless nonstop that the president was on his way not a whisper trust me! i was the only one breathing tup! door opens and in walks the president of india the most important secondin the history of the world
the president stood right infront of me, clasped both his hands and said, 'namaste' giving up all your sparetime as offering to facebook exhibiting without inhibitions ...your love and personal space ...to tom, dick and janein the most willing manner friends who render such social service this dizzy spell isn't new to me 1st time i had this dizzyspell when i met a man
i became his wife the 2nd time i fainted i became a mother by fainting in front of the presidenti became a 'sister' to every one of you 'fainting' has alwaysplaced me on a pedestal there's a lot of time left my dear kith and kin wait and see hats off, no one willopen their mouths again there is 1 more mouth to zip! good lord!

2 days in the lorry 2 days with me 3 days in the retail outlet 4 days in your fridge it will altogether add up to 15 days growing vegetables in our back yard... ...is a thing of the past we spray all this pesticide... ...to only increase shelf life
onion over there is from pakistan if vegetables shouldn't ripe ...and if fruits should be ripe ...we have to resort to some gimmicks but they want organic vegetables no problem at all at that point of time,dip them in mud like this they'll be as good as new for flies to squat on it...
...all you got to do is spray this it will become organic don't you have real, organic vegetables? such vegetables don'texist in our country promptly in the seedstage must mix chemicals and spray fertilizers4-5 times till they grow what happens to the consumerwho eats all this poison? poison won't scare him away only price will make him run a mile!
