The introduction of Neerkolam

Dear Jeyamohan

The introduction of Neerkolam when the King realizes that "Agam" has nothing to do with "Udal"
and the liberation he received creates the foundation for the upcoming chapters where the Pandavas have to live in disguise. Each one of the chapters is fascinating and I felt walking with the Pandavas, feeling the thirst, heat, forest, and the changing landscape. Conversation with the Sage Damanar who advise the Pandavas on bringing out the hidden forms out helps the reader to understand the link between the Intro and the extension of Neerkolam that is shaping.

Pandavas decide to take the different roles and the "Avatar" they prefer is great. Needless to say, your writing is a painting by words. At the same time, Panchali's feelings and the way she adjusts 
and Dharma's anguish splash in between the Kolam. Bhima, the unpretentious warrior subtly shows his love by taking care of Panchali. Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadev works in unison with their end goal in mind to complete the 13 years - great siblings team bound by love and respect to Dharma.

Special mention are the small characters like the "virali" riding on a donkey or the Sudhars or the monkeys who provide that colorful brilliance to the Neerkolam.

As usual, I am amazed at your tireless monumental work. This NeerKolam will remain for eternity.
Thank you.

Warm regards
