  21. My deepest condolences to chitra chechi n her family… I know losing something so precious is like losing a part of our body which cant be replaced by any cost… My fervent prayers with chitra chechi n her family.
    I read some of ur so called condolence msgs guys. y do u bring JESUS or any other GODS in ur ecommunictions. Nirmala’s god is jesus while the guy who contradicted is a hindu. Religion is a personal choice pls dont make it communal. My dad is a Potti brahmin from mangalore n my mom is a protestant christian from chennai i’ve followed both the religions religiously…. If jesus and his miracles r not present then y divine retreat(chalakudy) jesus calls (chennai) n velankani r working n healing millions of people….. If guruvayoor sabarimala n thirupathi r not true then y r miracles happening every time there and y do people from all over the globe throng dis place in millions. If allah the almighty is not true y do our islam bretherns go to the holy mecca wid full of faith n a clear heart…… So mr/ms sakky stop booing or hurting some ones sentimental values or their faiths n try to extend ur heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family in a
    Cordial way. Thanks:).

  22. dear cithera cechi

    Jesus please comfort her family, “chitra mam dont worry about her, she is with jesus.pls come back to cine filed.
