ThalaiVaangumPatti 27 June – Right to this moment, I have believed in the saying that ‘Smile a lot. It costs nothing’. But it does not always turn out to be true.
Pakkirisami is a resident of ThalaiVaangumPatti in Madurai district. Right at the early age of 8, he had resolved to smile all the time. Many a times it has turned out that his smile has ired persons around him, resulting in a brawl. He was once beaten up for smiling continuously, when his neighbor’s house was robbed. Right now, Pakkirisami is admitted to the GH in Madurai with a peculiar problem. Due to excessive smiling and laughing, the muscles inside his chin are highly damaged. Senior doctors say that an operation is required, which might cost around 2 Lakh Rupees.
So, I would like to rephrase the saying as follows. “Smile a lot. It is good, but sometimes it costs you something”.
