Wanderer's stories - 1

" When the wanderer was ten years old, his mother insisted that he take a course in physical education. One of the activities required him to jump from a bridge into a river.Early in the course, he was paralyzed by fear. Each day, he stood last in line, and suffered every time one of those in front made his jump -- because it would shortly be his turn.One day, the instructor -- noticing his fear -- made him take the first jump. Although he was still fiightened, it was over so quickly that the fright was replaced by courage.The master says: "Often, we can afford to take our time. But there are occasions when we must roll up our sleeves and resolve a situation. In such cases, there is nothing worse than delay."

Genie talk: Read "What about Bob" Script today. Couldn't help but admire Kamal for his excellence even while making a movie based on this (Thenali was taken scene by scene from this). You should see both these movies to understand what I say. What with people doing the "ee adichchaan copy stuff" these days... What 2 say? Its Kamal.

Yeah! I incidentally saw this movie in mbc2 without knowing that Thenali was remake of it...Surprised..

Though the scenes and plot were exactly the same, there was striking difference in the execution of Thenali.
