First of all, I want to thank you for Manaosai. I have nearly finished reading it and I thought I let you know so far I am very pleased with it. I must tell you I am very stunned by the cover. Sure you know I show interest to a book by its cover and this cover is a very appealing one.
It's very difficult to decide whether the artistically work of your Dad (Munaa) compliments the writing of your Mum (Chandravathanaa) or the other way. Whichever way it is, I must confess I am delighted to see a couple with talents complimenting each other's work, exist in our community too.
You can probably hand-pick the Tamil books with covers which attract you from the first view. And Manaosai is definitely one of them. My wife is not a big fan of Tamil books, but when she saw the book on my night-table she could not resist it and now also reads it. She also was very amazed by the fact that a Tamil book could have so much character to it even before starting to read it. We now discuss each story and I was stunned to realize how different our views are and we came to a conclusion that a man sees the story at a totally different angle than a woman. My wife also quoted that this book is very easy to read and relate to. I must agree with her, it's a very realistic book where you can just go inside the characters.
Both the artists work is excellent. What a combination of a couple and well done on the production of Manaosai to both of them. And can you please let me know where I can get two more copies of Manaosai as my colleagues are interest too.
