Dear Jeyamohan
“Dhisai Ther Vellam”, another “sol vellam” where differences are forgotten with the word "kill". Focusing only on the revenge for some, why "am I" in the warfront for others, yet all of them marching with a unified rhythm to kill, win, and protect a belief which many do not understand fully!.  You bring additional dimensions to the story with your exhaustive research on the names and political landscape of that era.  Anther noteworthy feature is when you bring a character for example Asangan, you magically bring that connection with the earlier episodes and also provide a synopsis and fill the gap between then and now. This is where as a writer you stand on top of the Everest. You are providing a mini Wikipedia for those characters and immortalize them however small the role may be.

Royals, Nobility, Nishadas, Arakars, warriors from different parts of India come together in unison to protect their belief in Kurukshetra.  The focus is getting sharper on both sides motivated by words, actions, and dreams. The chapter where Ma Ambai reiterating her vengeance including her siblings is so real as if one is witnessing the anger of Ma.  Amazing imagination that one cannot but believe “Yes, this is how it should have happened”, the great war is now increasing its momentum. It is also sad that eventually all the warriors will die stoically or jubilantly. War is both rivalry and revelry!
Looking forward to the next chapters.  Also enjoyed reading about your travels to the waterfalls in Karnataka. My bucket list to visit places in India is increasing exponentially!. Thank you.

Warm regards
