Dear Ratheesh
I do share Dina's enthusiasm for your text. In includes several engaging
proposals and the necessary balance between accepted definition and
understanding of actual processes that are not so frequent in what we read.
I sre would like to watch "Dear Kim". And I understand you even better
having attended with pleasure Kerala festival.
Best regards
