    I wonder what he did though, to have those dark thoughts about his past. Or is it just nostalgia?

      Actually, the mirror answers to his question. Meaning, his happiness was not in the money and business he won today, but in their poor old house.
      At least that is what I wanted to convey. Maybe did not succeed?

    This is what you call getting lost in your memories.

    Nice post. We want to have what we don’t have. Dileepan has a good present, but he is unhappy and not enjoying his present and cribbing for the past. Human nature!

      Yes, we always appreciate something in its absence, and not when in possession of it. Sad.
