Hi Buddies,
 I am opening this thread for members who were very active and for some reason they had to discontinue....But when they come back.....they don't have any idea where to catch their buddies......Hence I thought this thread can be the first place they meet their buddies and then they can go else where....visiting other sections....
This is staring with Spain's posts  ( from Australia) who posted in Kalyanam thread....since she was not sure which section to go......( I have also moved all the other posts who replied to Spain)
Enjoy meeting your old buddies here firends!!!

down memory lane.....
Hi Satish,
My name is spain....
my real name is.....well, you already know that....
It's great to see you and your messages again at the forum. I've been out of touch with tv serials for the past two years. But even then, the familiar names and familiar faces still bring a big smile to my face.Big smile
After many, many months I logged in again...only to find a sweet message sent by one of our well-known members here....meli. I've known her, atina, bluegal, dasa and many other good friends during my short but active discussion at the bandham forum. That was nearly two years ago. And they still remember me!
I don't post messages anymore because I am busy with work. (For the uninformed, I'm in the medical profession). I haven't really gone "missing"....I just never had the time to visit the forum.
I miss the good old members of the discussion forum, including dasa. He, bluegal and I had endless mind-twisting debates with the bandham storyline. We enjoyed ourselves and we bonded so well.....
The funny part was that the bandham creative team couldn't figure out how people from different countries could be so knowledgable about tamil tv serials!! I remember actor Deepak once wrote quite frankly to me that he was scared of my comments! I think they changed the entire storyline because of us and our witty discussions.LOL We twisted everyone's brains two years ago in the bandham forum....that everytime someone read my message, there would be a new topic discussion for the week.....
I miss those good old times. I miss atina and bluegal a lot. They are still active members of the forum and dedicate a huge amount of their time to make the discussions here lively and interesting. But I also miss a dear friend called dasa. For those of you who knew him, he had excellent writing skills, had a great sense of humour and was very sharp and witty. On the personal front, he was a very humble and kind friend to me. His comments always brought a smile to my face. Sadly, since his father passed away two years ago...he has been missing from the forum....
It's strange. I have never personally met anyone in this forum. But some of the nicest people I got to know through our comments and discussions....are still here, and I still wish to meet them someday. I may no longer be able to be an active member here, but my thoughts and well-wishes are always with you.
A big warm hello to atina, meli, bluegal and the others.
I can see many new members have joined this forum....
but the old ones....oh, the old ones are always golden....Clap
Cheers to all of you!
And you too, Satish.....
Warmest regards,

HI Spain!!
It is me Caryn. Big smile  Yeah, I know you remember me now, we used to PM each other.  Your advise was so useful to me.  I asked Netra where you were and she told me you used to be in Bandham section.  I visited there just to see if you are there, but nope you have disappeared.
So I presumed you might be busy in your medical profession and hence you have disappeared.
Well, don't be stranger, do pop in from time to time.

Hi again.....'s so nice to see all your familiar names and oh-so-familiar messages againEmbarrassed....I really really missed all of you here.....
but what to do, being a doctor in real life is not so easy like in reel life Ouch(i.e. tv serials!!)....and so compromises and sacrifices have to be made....
Nevertheless, I will try my best to post messages here whenever I can....or in some other this thread is not about me, but about Satish! So I'd like to remain in the shadow....while the actor can take centre stage here.....
There is another familiar name I remember very well....Patraj! Oh my could I forget her? I remember when the Muhurtham storyline totally flopped and all the characters changed....she was the only sincere soul writing beautiful updates for the most boring episodes! She is truly an inspiration for writing updates....and yes, I was a silent reader of the Muhurtham forum too.
Actually, I first visited IF because of the Muhurtham forum...and this happened nearly 3 years back. Muhurtham was my first exposure to watching a tamil tv serial. (What an experience, I must say!) But one reason why I did like that serial was for an actress called Vaishnavi. I didn't know any names of the tv world back then...but I liked her face and I liked her smile. I still remember the opening title song of Muhurtham serial....she comes in there for a split second....where she smiles, and her cheeks inflate like two mini balloons on her face.Big smile I cannot forget that smile and I cannot forget that face and I cannot forget that name. So one day when I heard some actress from  Muhurtham passed away....I thought one of the old ladies (who played the mother character roles) must have had a heart attack or fallen down the stairs and passed away. I was totally unaware at that time that a 20-year old would have taken her life away....and that that girl was Vaishnavi. I was truly shocked and disturbed when I heard the news. That's when I saw the Muhurtham thread at IF....and it was at the same time, Satish had posted the news of his fellow actress' sudden and tragic death. It was really sad....and it also showed the deeper darker side of the glamour world. Not to mention, it also gave us a chance to interact with an actor who is so amazingly down to earth and humble to share his experiences with us.
So yes, this thread is meant for the actor who deserves a place of his own here....and once in a while....I will surely drop in a line or two.
Hey, I remember rojapooo, caryn, madhumitas and serial123 very well too! A big Hi to all of you out there!!!! I miss you guys.....b'coz the times we shared here at the forum were some kinda golden memories....they just don't come very often in one's life.....
I will drop by whenever I can....
But just know that all of you are missed very dearly....
And it's always a pleasure to visit the forum.....
Take care....and will write soon.....

hello spain,

nice to meet you like after so many years!!!!
i really missed chatting with you in pm's about our detailed discussion on bandham and everything.
and i remember deepak mentioning that he was scared of your comments when atina interviewed him lol.
that time bandham was draggy so we had many chances to turn the story to our own plot lol and it was really imaginative. me, spain, dasa and atina and a few others. you know that time we only get to 3-4 pages max for all our sweating updates cause there were many silent readers back then (meli, you just revealed yourself hehe). but since then there had been new entries but the old is never forgotton. even bandham had been running in a better direction.
i had to be less active since sometime back due to my work commitments but nevertheless bandham has sentiments on me so i will not give it up thus will support it secretely (hehe atina).
welcome back spain and pls do drop by often visit us whenever you can admidst your busying doctor career!
take care!

Hi Spain

Its so nice to see your message here. I do remember those good old days and currently i recollect your advice on allergies as i am going through them.,

Like you i am not very active, but do pop up once in a while to get some updates. I am active in the athiradi singer forums and that is coming to a close as well.

I hope you are doing well and good luck on everything.

Hello Satish and welcome back to the forums.
