India is one of the countries where education gets wide publicity through several religious festivals dominated by art and music. Though people, by and large, are more interested in the cultural aspects of these festivals, the children look forward to the gifts that are piled up in every room. Whatever it be, such festivals become more memorable and productive with the involvement of teachers. Of late, certain schools have introduced art and culture as part and parcel of their campus life, which may as well extend to the life of students beyond schools. Yes, let us do our best to make such occasions valuable opportunities to impart cultural knowledge.

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
