80-CheeTiyaaTada binadi taanu ellaroLagobba...

Translation:       O! Mankutimma, when people are alone and get bored, they play cards. A two person game - both of which are played by the same person. They quickly get engrossed in the game giving their full best to either sides when it is their turn to play. Creator is doing exactly like that. He is leading his lonely existence by playing all the roles of all the beings, doing good justice to all the roles.
