Annasamy Anna tells many stories ...

Annasamy old and wise relates tales ... and Kaavya, ten years, hanging over the doorway listening, absorbs the values ... and thus is dharma passed on from the old to the young ...


Annasamy Anna ... comments on the value of the spoken word saying, “Everyone who is born will die. Only words live on.” He says that what remains in the end is memory … all becomes mud, but the rememberances we have of people is what lives on …

Annasamy Anna says, “There can be a paper, a pen and the doctor, but finally the talarotha or fate is all powerful. When the time to depart comes, nothing will work. If one runs searching for doctors, no doctor will be found”.

Annasamy Anna tells many stories ...

He tells the story of how when the various gods were given responsibilities Dharmaraja or Yama protested as he was given the responsibility of ensuring death when a person’s allotted lifespan on earth was completed. But he was reassured and told that people would would not see him as responsible - and would give their own names for the cause of deaths such as disease and accidents and suchlike.
