‘Ammalu, I will be confined to my library till your friends leave with the Golu Prasad. You are welcome to call me if any help is needed’

‘At least twenty times, you will be crisscrossing the hall when my friends are here. You can as well join us, provided you resist your temptation to feel their sari and praise its quality or pat them at their back and don’t remover your hand’

‘With so many conditions tagged to my presence here, better stay in my library and read DevibAgavatham’

‘That suits your age!’

‘It doesn’t suit my mind!’

‘To be frank SP, I like that mind, though I raise objections now and then, just for fun. Yes, I like you, SP’
