Old order changeth, yielding place to new!

An Africa chimpanzee had escaped from a zoo in America. The security personnel were alerted and the officers were contacting one another to ascertain the whereabouts of the dangerous guy. At last, one of them spotted him, “I have spotted him. He looks dangerous…and smart too…dressed like humans!” Soon this message was passed on to some of his colleagues.

It was none other than a comedian who resembled a chimpanzee. The poor chap was eating a banana, monkey-style. Soon, he was caught by the security people. One of them contacted the head office to inform that the chimpanzee was under their custody and that he resembled the missing one 200 percent! The poor chap told them that he was an Indian….an actor. “Bollywood or Kollywood?” one of them asked. “Kollywood”, he said and began to dance to the tune of a couple of hit songs. The officers got inspired and danced with him. It was an opportune time for him to escape and he ran all the way to the beach, much to the delight of some young couples [They too thought he was a chimpanzee on prowl!]

People watch movies, Bollywood or Kollywood, from various angles depending on their preferences which range from action-packed or rural-based to song-filled movies or the ones in which their favorite stars and comedians are in action. There may be  dearth of new ideas but science and technology have developed to such an extent that new and old scenes or songs are blended so wonderfully these days to give you the thrill and fun of the two;…fusion or remix, whatever it may be. If you have no patience to watch the entire show, you may watch just the ones you like…the blended items!

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.
