  2. Dear Annachi,

    I have an aruvaal and my aalu Valarmathi’s name tattoed on my inner wrist. However, this person seems more literature-inclined, and by that I do not mean that he reads Dina Thanthi (even though I do not). This symbol is Trystero’s muted posthorn symbol from Thomas Pynchon’s “The Crying of Lot 49” . I know because it is a book I once saw at the book-stall in Ambasamudram railway station.
