A wonderful imitation indeed!

“It is raining, it is raining”. A young man was cautioning his friends with whom he had come to that shopping mall. “No chance” I said to myself. Just a couple of minutes ago, the sky was absolutely blue—there were streaks of white clouds which never indicated an impending rain.

There are several breathtaking places in Hong Kong, apart from those huge ultra-modern malls. Urbanization normally takes place at the expense of nature but in Hong Kong, the nature is only gently tamed and not destroyed.

Human beings have created wonderful worlds of their own but a beach is a beach and a forest is a forest….man-made lakes and parks are just imitations that could capture your attention only for a while.

Now, I must get back to that guy who yelled, “it is raining, it is raining”. He was right. It was indeed raining. The blue sky I had seen a while ago was an artificial sky! A wonderful imitation indeed!

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.
