Not a quick tale

Hello Reader,

I am the man from Quick tales. My name is...well, it doesn’t matter what my name is. I’m always ‘her husband’ or ‘her boyfriend’ or the ‘one who became her password’. The author portrays me as a chauvinistic, abusive slime ball. Well, guess what? I’m not. That’s that.

Regards,

Me

அன்புள்ள அம்மனி அவர்களுக்கு,

யாருக்காக, இது யாருக்காக?

'42 (அல்லது 43) குயிக் டேல்களுக்கு உங்களை முன்னிறுத்திக் கொண்டு, பிறகு தலையெடுக்க வைத்த 'அவர்'; இது கூட ஒரு வகை ஷேவனிஸம்' என நான் வாதிட்டால் அது குதர்க்கம்தானே?

'நீங்கள் எழுதுவது சரி' எனும் பட்சத்தில் யாரையும் convince செய்ய வேண்டிய அவசியமில்லை என்று நினைக்கிறேன்.

என்றும் அன்புடன்,
ரங்கநாதன்

Cool! This one is really great, and probably one of the best (even though it is 'not a quick tale').

Lost in trance... said...

Hi,
If at all you are the other half of the author , you don't have to justify youtself.
After all Ammani's QTales are fiction perhaps a bit pessimistic inherent to Indian families
