Update for Mon, Jan 25, 2010:
Diwa is looking at the laptop showing him and the baby with his wife's image blanked out. Just then, his phone rings, but he ignores it, and continues to look at the laptop. Durga comes into the room, picks up the phone and gives it to him. It is the lawyer, and he is asking for the address so that he can send the divorce notice. Diwa looks up, sees his father and mother are both in the room, and hesitates, then gives his address. Sada wants to know who the call is from (and why are you so nosey?), and he says it is from his office and they are checking up some details. Now the lawyer wants Sakthi's address, and Diwa realizes he cannot give it when both his parents are right there, so he says that the signal is not coming clearly and comes outside to take the call. The lawyer asks him if he is having second thoughts, but he denies it and gives Sakthi's address.
Sakthi is feeding the baby, and Kalai comes in, and asks if she has heard anything from Diwa. She says No, and acknowledges that some of the problems were partly her fault, but she is now paying the price for it, and she wants to know why he doesn't realize that she is suffering now. She says that he is obviously still very angry with her -( I have only one question at this point - that house that they were living in - is anyone paying the rent? Nobody is staying there right now, but their clothes, TV etc., are still there, so are they paying rent just to store all those things? Oh well, eljay, why ask these questions? Just write the updates, and keep going.) Kalai tells her that soon he will realize her sufferings, and will come to take her back. The whole clan gathers by this time.
Athai and Sezhi walk in, and Athai tells Kalai to go with her to see the new specialist. Kalai hesitates, and he says that these treatments by specialists cost money, he is okay as he is, so why spend more money? What if he doesn't get better? Athai tells him she has made all the arrangements, he asks who has given her the money, Megala also asks and finally she says that Anbu is one of the people who has agreed to give the money. She says that the treatment will be done in Singapore, and Megala is surprised that Anbu never mentioned it to her. Athai brushes Megala aside, and finally Kalai agrees to go to see the doctor. Sezhi tells Athai to stay behind as only one person can go with the patient to see the doctor, and Athai is reluctant but she finally agrees to stay behind. She tells him to return quickly as she cannot spend too much time in that house.
Balu is reading something. Karuna comes in, sees a button missing on his shirt, yells for Keerthana, then yells at her when she comes, she apologizes, and he continues to shout. Finally, she goes inside to get him another shirt, and Balu gets up and goes into the next room with a strange expression on his face. Karuna asks him why he is so quiet, and he tells him that he knows that all this shouting is an act for his benefit, and he is not an idiot, he knows that Karuna is dancing to his wife's tune, and all this fake shouting does not impress him at all. Keerthana and her MIL are both listening to all this. Karuna looks puzzled and finally leaves. Keerthana explains to her MIL that Karuna was actually shouting at her today but Balu thought this was also an act for his benefit.
Diwa comes down for breakfast, it is not ready and Durga says that she will have it ready in five minutes. He gets impatient and leaves, leaving his phone on the table. It rings after he leaves, and Durga asks Sada to answer it. He answers it, and it is from the lawyer, who says that it is about the divorce notice and says that he has some questions. Sada is shocked ...
