Sensible handling of sensitive issues

I am a staunch supporter of Rahul Gandhi, the AICC general secretary, not merely because he belongs to the Nehru family and to the Indian National Congress. He is neither aggressive nor defensive like some youngsters and has the patience to listen to the problems of the masses.

Naturally one expects him to be cautious when he touches upon sensitive issues like religion, caste or region because even a slip of the tongue could lead to chaos and confusion and undue advantage to some wicked forces.

As such, Rahul should avoid measuring the religious fundamentalists in India with the same yard stick. There are organizations which may be communal but Indians to the core and the ones who are not necessarily loyal to India… the ones who draw inspiration from certain anti-Indian outfits rooted in some neighboring countries.

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.
