Issues in India

The plight of Indian students in Australia

India and Australia are friendly countries and quite a few Indians, mostly university students are there in Australia. It was cricket, in spite of occasional sledging by Aussie players, which brought the two countries together. But now it is Indian students, in pursuit of higher studies who are making their presence felt.

But things took a dangerous turn when there was a series of brutal attacks on Indian students by some unsocial elements (some say the attackers are racists-may be because they used to make some racist comments after every attack). If by any chance they are racists let them realize the fact that it is not the color of one’s skin which makes one superior or inferior but one’s culture. What prompts a person to attack someone without any provocation is the animal instinct in that person. So friends, you will be judged not by the color of your skin but by the purity of your heart or your culture.

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.
