Friendly rivals and power sharing!

The people of certain states in India will get used to freebies of almost all items and the political parties [freebie specialists] facing future elections will have to invent new ideas. The parents will be less interested in the education of their kids; the marriages will be less expensive and the demand for certain ‘must’ items will vanish but the pressure will be in some other forms. Anyway, it will be wise to think of alternatives well in advance. How about constructing store rooms in every nook and corner to enable people to dump the innumerable free materials already received by them?…or making arrangements to accept second-hand [damaged] items at half the rate? At a time when rival parties have the same strategies, why not they sit together and agree upon a 50-50?—seat sharing culminating in power sharing. That is: Rival party nr 1 and nr 2 will exchange positions once in 6 months till the 5-year term ends. If they succeed in this strategy it will drastically reduce mental and physical tension!

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.
