I was reading the day’s newspaper, not during the morning but in the evening, contrary to my daily habits. The evening was so harsh that I was just going through major headlines unmindful of major news items. But just when I was about to put the paper down, I was carried away by one particular item, which gave me the strength to carry on. It was about a lady police officer who had conquered the south pole, which was very very cold. And what? She was getting ready to conquer the north pole too, despite the fact that the poles were too cold.

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first. View all posts by P U Krishnan
