‘Ammalu, if there is a will, there is a way. My will says my immovable assets will go to my children
and my movable asset ( that is you) will get my note book and a ball pen so that you will sit in a corner and learn English’

‘SP, you talked only about your will and not about the way. I will do that job for you.

You will dumb your will in the well at our backyard, take the paper and ball pen and start writing ‘SreerAma jayam’ so that your confusion in thinking, talking and walking may vanish. ( I’m not using the word ‘will’ as I’m not sure whether even the all powerful Ramanama can change you to a wiser man). Don’t worry. I will continue to love you as you’re lovable with all your stupid wills and ways ‘


‘Ammalu, don’t try to gain sympathy from our children, just because, you are a woman. No difference between men and women’

‘No difference SP? Are you funny or foolish?’

‘I’m a man’

‘There you are! Thank you’


‘Oh, my God, Ammalu! Our astrologer ThAtchu Panikkar says , had I married not you but any other woman , I will be rolling and rolling in happiness. Where would I have reached by now had it happened?’

‘In the Indian Ocean!’

‘How?’

‘Rolling and rolling , where else you would have reached?’


Living under the same roof, we have to find a meeting point, despite our diverse interests and intellectual abilities, Ammalu’

‘Don’t we have one?’

‘Where?’

‘Dining table’
