  1. Sairam Aravind was expecting another nice narrative, but it had 101 good takes on Friendship. Why 101 and not 108 I thought? (In a lighter vein). Is it possible to put down what all SWAMI did for any one person and limit those to 108 or 1008 items? No the count will be innumerable for each person. This is something different, like Maggie in ads.

  2. Beautiful and very touching brother... love it :-)
