Parliament elections

Gone are the days when Lok Sabha elections were a serious competition between two major parties and a couple of namesake parties who could be identified with their flags and slogans such as, “A B C Zindabad!” or “E F G Moordabad!”

Then you have to wait for a few days to know whether the party supported by you is likely to form the government. The second one, though not in a position to form the government, would seek post-poll support of smaller parties so that even as the oppose the winner they can raise their voice so that they can enjoy the, “silence! silence!” for the whole day.

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.
