'I bow to:
Breaking the barriers

'The pain of rain to alleviate

Mankind to elevate'

and the force to unite'

'To my father of the

celluloid world'

'The truth to be told

as events unfold'



Our family will soon

have one more addition

Goddess Shakthi Our family deity!

Make sure my children and grandchildren are

hale and healthy wherever they may be

- Which month? - third

'She is slightly anemic I'll

prescribe some tablets'

She's a distant

relative of mine

If parents are blood

relatives, % chance baby

will be born with some

defect it seems?

Don't jinx it The

baby is fine now

That's enough

Must never step inside

any hospital, Malar

Good food is the

best medicine

Eat nutritious food

Be active, do plenty of

household chores

Be happy Pamper your mind

You'll have a safe delivery

Have you thought of a name?

Ilavarasi Singamperumal

if it's a girl

Boy means Chakravarthy


At three months, he'll turn over At

6 months, he will sit up

At nine months run

1year, he'll talk

- I didn't deny this

- Don't butt in

At twenty one months pre-school

At 33 months LKG

I'll ensure he stands first in10th grade

12th grade he'll achieve it by himself

Study MBBS here

Send him abroad for

higher studies

He will complete his MS

at Oklahoma University

And find a job there

I will get him married to a Tamil girl

who has studied there just like him

She should talk

Tamil fluently

Both of them will land here with a fat

bank account and the proud NRI tag

I will buy a piece of

land in the suburbs

And build a hospital

for them to-

Build and then what?

Instead of letting a toddler

walk, run or play freely

killing his creativity, contentment,

compassion as a humanE being

Raise him like a robot He'll end

up being depressed and kill-

Why be so pessimistic?

Don't stuff your dreams into

our unborn baby, Malar

That soul has a desire, dream,

life of his or her own too

We should be a pillar of strength

for our baby, that's all

(nursery rhyme)

This isn't for my ears!

The baby should hear

'It is the th 7month now, why is it your

parents haven't come to take you?'

'- So keen to pack me off!

- What was our pre-nuptial agreement?'

Oh yes!!

Don't tread so hard

Gently like a bed of roses

- Only then the baby will be a garland!

- Is this okay, dear?

Here, dear

- Hi, akka - Didn't go for a walk?

Poor lady!

He is torturing her

Don't react to all that

(phone rings)

Drink up this herbal

brew, dear

'Hello, uncle How are you?'

Malar, your father

is on the line

I won't let you hassle my wife You

can be her father or whoever!

I will call you once

the baby is born

Stand a mile away, look and

vanish into thin air!

I don't want any of your clan

to come and see the baby

Labor of love for years!

When you wake up look

at God's picture

If you're bored look at me!

(loud scream of pain)

Don't be scared Push

a little harder

Take me to the hospital

They will cut you open

and ruin your health

Shouldn't you lead a

healthy normal life?


Step outside, son

What was our pre-nuptial


You agreed to pay for

the pregnancy

I don't want my wife or baby

I will run away somewhere

What happened? Why this delay?


How many times will you call me?

Are you delivering the baby?

- You're so perturbed

- Of course I'll be

I have specified a time

My baby should be born at

that particular time

Okay, fine

'4 patients at the

same time'

I don't care about that I want

my baby delivered first

'Uncle, tell me, what did we decide
