The times in 1980s when i accompanied u for ur vethala paaku sessions? the immortal lines u have spoken to me on humour in various forms ? the wisecracks of urs even on the sad occasion of ur dad's passing away ? Mohan, u have deprived us all of atleast 3 more decades of jokes and laughter ! I wish somebody does a revival act like ur Vasool raja sequence ! I poignantly ( ur pet word) presume that u have just left to a different planet to entertain another tribe of humour lovers !But here, the humour world is now short of one erratic genius...CRAZY MOHAN ! love u boss !"
