There was a time when I was asked to eat burnt offerings. There were days when I was given a papad to eat and then later told that it was a poori. There were days in which the sambhar had tasted like payasam. There were even days when the dosa tasted like Italian Pizzas.
Try, Try till you succeed விடா முயற்சி விஸ்வரூப வெற்றி (Vida muyarchi Viswarooba vetri) is a mantra that my wife follows. I had to write this post for two reasons .
1) These days every meal is a treat to eat. ( This is today's lunch - mutton chops/chicken fry/mushroom gravy/chicken biriyani/rice/tomato rasam).
2) In future, I want these treats to continue to happen.
Note : After this post, two things might happen
1) If the first paragraph of this post takes a deep impact, then I might be given burnt offertory once again
2) If the second paragraph wins the competition, then I am lucky.

I always have a soft corner for Sadhus. As the name suggests, they are very soft people. They are kind hearted people who always stretch their hand and help those who are in need. They have a big heart and they are an asset to the nation.
Sadhus are also the first people in the world to wear Sarees. Later the Indian women started copying from the Sadhus and have made saree a women wear. But the sadhus never fought for their rights; because they are good hearted people.
Over the years , the Sadhus have always been targeted by media personalities. Sadhus are people who do not have a private life. They renounce everything and live like an open book. But still there are bad people who try to poke their nose in their private lives by place hidden cameras in their bathrooms and bedrooms.
What I am asking is "What is wrong in Sadhus having a jolly time?" Aren't they human beings too? For example, look at these wonderful Sadhus of the 21st century. See their faces.
When you take a closer look at their faces, you can see that they have a gentleman's look. They have a smiling face and they are as soft as a goat led to slaughter. Just because they look soft, should we make fun of them and take advantage of their soft outlook. Don't they also have feelings?
If they had done mistake, who are we to talk about that? They are people who have got special gifts. One person takes lingam out of his mouth. Another person makes frequent visits to heaven and another person can fly in the air. Can you and I do what they do? They are an asset to our country. So we should stop making fun of these three gentlemen.
Moral : I strictly order all my readers not to make fun of these three innocent Sadhus. If we ourselves do not stand for them, who will stand for them? How long will Malavika, Malliga and Ranjitha support them alone? Let us also join together and support these innocent Sadhus.
