'AARU PADAI VEEDUKAL' OF LORD MURUGA

Did you read ‘Little Lord Ganesh and the Wonderous Mango’ story?

..and you wondered how disappointed the little Lord Muruga could be?.

He would have been annoyed or even very crossed., Right?

Well, that is another big story and we will catch it up later when this story comes out.

For now, we will note that,

With your support, we will soon
bring them all here.
