Act: 3
Scene: 3






It was at the Police station the Auto finally stopped...and the two men sitting occupying the back seat, jumped and tried to sprint off... Malar yelled at the police men and public standing outside, and they caught the two men and took them in to the station.


Constable: Enna ma prachanai? Enna sacharavu?
Malar: Sir, ivanunga en auto la yerinanunga... vayila vandhapadi kana binaanu asingama oru ponna pathi pesitu vandhanunga, kadhae koosuchu... avanunga pesuna varthaiyellam thiruppi solla kooda mudiadhunga.  Ivanunga enna pathi pesalenaalum, naanum ponnu thanae....poruthu poruthu paathaen... ellai meeri pesa aramichapo, porukamudiama inga vandiya konandhu nipatitaen.  Neenga thaan nayam solanum nga.
Constable: Ennanga da.?? Pozhudhanaikum ponungala kevalama pesaradhae pozhapa vaichirukeengala??? inniku ungala vangara vangula ponunga irukara disaikae poga mateenga...

Two men their mind still reeling, not able to believe what was happening.  They didn't expect that Malar would stop before police station.  Usually woman give disgusted look and move away, when they talk in an obscene way. Every grimace, they considered as their personal victory.  Though they knew that they cannot be punished serious for talking obscene, they started to fear the way they were being handled at the police station.

Malar's dad turns and walks...

After 15minutes, Malar reaches the auto stand.

Manickam: Avar sonadha nijam nu nambi naan thaan kaasu kuduthaen... sorry nga.
Malar:  Neenga nalla manushan.  Avara thaan solanum.  Inniku thaniya full a pottutu enga vizhundhu kidapaaro. enna panradhu?
Manickam:  Naan solaraenu thappa nenikaadheenga, seekarama oru kalyanam panitu, purushan veetuku poidunga, appo kudika kaasu illama kashtapaduvaru ungappa, appovaavadhu kudiya nirutharara paapom.
Malar:  Aatha illa, appan seri ila.  Enakaedhunga vaazhkai.  Kaalam muzhuka ippadiyae irukka mudivu panitenga.

Manickam, looks at the bowed head of Malar and felt a pang of emotion hit him for the first time all these years. He kept telling himself over and over that it's just sympathy. When he finally lay down on his bed,  he smiled to himself and his mind was thinking about Malar.  There was this slow thought that formed in his head.  It was a million chorus resonating inside his brain, when Manickam's eyes shut down finally and sleep embraced him.
