    Dear Brian, thanks for your appreciation. I realize that I could have used a term better than too good which clearly wasnt that! But what I did mean to say was that that language you've used in your poems is indeed very good. Incidentally, my medium of instruction has been English and I'm more comfortable with this language than with my mother tounge. But I guess errors do creep in. I will separately send you a list of some of my favourite Tamil movie hits. You may be able to get DVDs with English subtitles. 'Annakili' is a tragedy in monochrome; a very touching movie in an Indian village setting. I thank you also for your appreciattion and for the high ratings you've given to my two poems. I'm a novice here so my language and use of phrases may still need improvements. - with regards, Paddy.

    To my fellow PH family of poets, here is a new poet worthy of your support. Only here since January of 2014 with 37 poems already and now 154 on the popularity scale. To Padmanabhan I say (in jest) Your English is too good, he said, That clearly indicates that you are foreign, For while others are instructed in their native language, English people aren't. I am something of a foreign film aficionado and would love to see a list of your favorite Tamil films if you would be so kind. I will certainly look for a DVD version of Annakili. I am a sucker for titles, and loving music as I do, The Master of Melody was the first poem I read, My Departed Brother, was the 2nd. I have given you a 10 on both. MDB is a fine tribute to your brother filled with honesty, regret and loss.
    I assure you I will come back for more. I feel sure we are destined for friendship. It is an honor to be the first to welcome you in this special way.

New Year's Cheer

What's in a New Year's Day, I did wonder?
Just another day in the Gregorian calendar?
Romans did consecrate, it to the great Janus
To face past-n-future, the God's two faces.

Of the days past it's a time for reflection
Of days to come, it's one of anticipation
Of the year that was past, it's delusions
Will all go, with the evening of celebrations
