79-Vishvaleele-bareva halageyanoDedu baalakanu taanadanu...

Translation:      O! Mankutimma, a small boy is engrossed in putting together the pieces of his broken slate to make it complete again. He broke it in the first place. Although it is tiresome for him to put it back together, he is involved it in wholeheartedly and in oblivious to the rest of the world. So is the creator - engrossed in the process of creating and breaking his own creation. He is enjoying it just like the little boy even if it seems tiresome and futile.
