Shree Viswanathan gaaru,
               Namaskaaramu. I agree with you that this world of dualities
that we see around us seems real, until we realize Brahman. In fact, Advaita
Vedanta says that this world is ultimately unreal in the sense that it gets
sublated at some point (and is not eternal). It does not say that this world
is an illusion in the sense that a hare's horn is an illusion.
But your analogy of

  Namaskaramu. I understand what you said. But still I feel that both the
