TA is busy checking his packed items and notices T standing behind him with a worried face. TA asks if she had completed the assignments and how has she prepared for her final exams. T says, she had packed every single thing carefully and adds that she has packed her dresses too so that she can leave to MM's house when he leaves to Madurai.. TA doesn't answer to this which makes T worried more. T asks if he is mad with her that she is going to MM's house. TA doesn't reply but says T can proceed as she has decided about it already which makes T worry more.
Next morning T brings in coffee to TA who is busy checking his things for the trip. He takes the coffee. T comes closer to him to say something .
"Ennanga".. says Thulasi with a smiling face.
"Oh my God!" screams TA on the phone and walks out to talk to someone.
T gets so upset about it and keeps staring at her closed hand.
TA comes in and asks if she is ready to leave and says his call taxi would be here any moment. T calls him again.."Ennanga..". He asks "Enna?"
T slowly opens her hand and takes vibuthi in a finger and applies on his forehead, "I went to the temple and did archanai in your name; the training period will be successful and kandipa you will get your promotion."
TA becomes speechless by looking at her. He tries to say something, but stops on hearing the car horn. He looks at Thulasi, who is so worried about the separation and says "Car vanthachu; kelamburein".
T just nods her head.
TA asks, if she would leave the place in an auto or shd he drop in the taxi. T says she would manage herself. TA thanks her and looks at her and starts to leave.
T again calls "Ennanga".."Please call me once u reach the place".."Dont forget to give me a call everyday and I would be waiting for it".
TA just nods and enters the car.T waves good bye to him and comes back inside the house and starts to cry badly, after all her first separation after their wedding. She slowly comes back to normal and takes her packed things and her school bag. She locks her house and starts to walk towards the auto stand and proceeds to MM's house.
Thulasi keeps trying TA'sto reach number, but the call gets disconnected again and again. She starts to weep badly thinking on why TA doesn't answer his call. She comes down to ask for PA's help and asks him to try TA's number as she worried that he is not answering the call and same happens with PA too. Just then, Sudha drops in and reminds that it is time for them to leave to the shop and calls in Thulasi too with her. GW keeps staring at both her DILs and shows more mad face.
Just then Thulasi gets a call and when she happily thinks its TA, to her disappointment its Deepa's number. She picks the call. Deepa asks if everything is okie with her at GW's place and said she could not come to meet her these days after their exams. Deepa adds that she learnt about the issues at MM's place and just called to enquire about it. T gets so annoyed with things running in her mind and is unable to answer Deepa.. Deepa on the line, "Thulasi?" T says " Hmm Deepa...Right now I m proceeding to Sudha akka's store and I want to talk to u about many things..can u please make it there to visit me?"
Deepa readily agrees and T hangs up the phone.
Thulasi is busy arranging the items at the store with the other sales girls. A man comes and enquires about some item at the store. Thulasi identifies him as TA's manager Venkatachalm and wishes him. Both enquire about their well being. When he was about to take leave, he turns back towards Thulasi and asks, "Aama, Thamizh eppo ma Bangalore lenthu thirumba varan, 15 days leave keturnthan, ippo 5 days extend pannirukane athaan keten"... Thulasi in shock again asks " Bangalore? Sir Did U say Bangalore"... Manger sir.."aama ma, nee ketaudane i thought i said wrong place, Bangalore thaane ma"... Thulasi is shattered and dumbstruck!!!
