Accentuate the Positive

There are negative forces all over the world. Though numerically they are a negligible minority, the noise and the consequent tension created by these elements seem to outweigh the performance of scientists, thinkers, artists, sports persons, etc., who inspire thousands of youngsters.

The purpose of these negative forces it to scare away the talented youngsters so that their ‘ideologies’ would spread thick and fast. Politicians who are supposed to nourish the up and coming talents are more interested in settling scores with their opponents and there are some popular news channels to give a larger than life image to the day to day bickering that take place in the political world.

Let us forget the negative elements and admire the talented youngsters in various fields ranging from sport and music to science and technology, for they are the ones who make our lives comfortable. The role played by the electronic and print media in bringing the best out of the talent youngsters is remarkable.

Just watch those healthy competitions on TV and you are reassured of a world free from the pinpricks of the evil and negative forces. Even from a selfish angle we have to encourage these youngsters so that in due course, the negative forces will be marginalized.

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.
