Amidst all these chaos and confusions

When it comes to politics, the people in general, see it as a trump card to bring about the necessary changes in society or to put pressure on the politicians during their 5-year term. Then, there are those who happen to be staunch supporters of certain parties and all they expect is the victory of such parties, no matter how beneficial these parties are. On top of them are tough guys who see politics as a ‘dirty game’. “All these politicians are ‘birds’ of the same feather,” they would tell you if you attempt a discussion on ‘current politics’.

Of late, I have developed a soft corner for these tough guys who see politics as a dirty game. Even the so-called principled parties who used to place prestige and welfare of the nation above everything else, find a sadistic pleasure in the mud-slinging game. They waste their precious time and energy on allegations and counter-allegations… and our news channels are ready to oblige them by blowing things out of proportion.

Yet, amidst all these din and buzzle, we also see hundreds of highly talented kids and youngsters in various fields and they do get the required exposure through various TV channels.

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.
