thanx Simon for taking out time to help me

question is essentially no, 
there's no way to do what you're asking in a single pass.

The optimal way to do it would be to use a single context. If the first 
template might make changes to the second template, wrap the single 
context in an individual one per template. Then, if you're going to be 
using the same templates more than once in the application run, it will 
be much more efficient to use mergeTemplate than evaluate, as the former 
uses caching.
