“You are all smiles.  What’s cooking?”,  The inquisitive old woman asked the teen age girl, next door.  “Nothing grandma”, the girl replied,  thinking that the old woman would leave it at that, but the old lady provoked her by saying,  “was it for nothing that chap brought all those fruits and flowers… that too on a silver plate?”.

The teenager seemed to be happy with that question and said, “grandma, I have made it clear to him that I see him only as a friend and he too treated me as his friend… but I don’t know why he… ”  Before she could complete the sentence, a ruffian who over heard this conversation shouted, “grandma, if that chap visits this place again, I will blow him to pieces”

I don’t know what happened afterwards but one thing was certain.  The youngsters in that slum area are the fans of some movie stars.  Their way of dressing, conversations and behavior were similar to what we see in the present-day movies!

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.
