Manju (- Mist -)

Though I started blogging with ' It Starts Raining ', todays' is my first
'fullfledged' post -- manju. That day I started just for a name sake. In
the second post also, I have a similar title as that of first one - 'manju',
who is a relative of hailstone , raindrops ( obviously cool ones :)

As you all know, Manju is a very short novel by M.T. I completed
reading it two days back. It is a nice one. It is short too, which makes
it more nice to me :) The whole story has a few number of characters
in it , which is even countable with our hands ( I mean the fingers ).
Taking each chapter indvidually, we'll be pushed down into a confused
state of mind. Everything described there seems vague to me-a foggy
picture of every character , except that of Vimala Teacher (heroine)
around whom the whole story rotates. But as a whole , the novel
seems to be crystal clear.

I didnt get any message (a moral one !!) or something like that from
its reading. Neither it offered a happy mood nor a tragic mood. But
a good feeling (???) was given.

As I told, this is my first fullfledged post.
As I'm a beginner, there is a probability (approximately equal to one)
of me making mistakes, which are to be pointed out by you people for
improvising my posts and writing skills.

Nothing else for today.


PS : Watch 'Weather forecast' to know when will the 'cool rain drops'
will be showered on you the next time .

"mazha peyyukayo , peyyathirikkukayo cheyyam "

Be prepared with a strong enough umbrella for, the precipitation have
'hailstones' along with the 'cool rain drops'.


Signing Off,
Hailstone.

you mean to say that all the characters were *misty*...

Taken each chapter individually confuses the reader and as a whole at the end the flow is clear and crystal.(i guess he relates the whole stuff together towards the end)

isn’t that a great quality of the writer?

@ Amma..

Can expect anything at any time,
even a heavy rainfall with thunder, storm, lightning etc. :)
Dry summer may also attack.
But, the most probable case is 'vallappozhum oru chattalmazha', as you said.

@ Chettan..

Yes, then it would have been more matching.

@ Vivek..

Ofcourse.
No doubt about that.

First of all, welcome ! :)

One `kutti' correction: your post in not properly indented. This reminded me, something of the past.

When I made such mistakes while sending mails initially, I thought that I am too careless and thats why it happens. But later, one professor at IIT-M gave a one-hour lecture to the new batch of TAs (teaching assistants) explaining the technical problems in rendering a properly formatted text. Actually, he made us to come to the conclusions, ourselves.

Thankyou Dinil chetta.
