Pleasant Distractions

When Newspaper-addicts settle down to read the days paper, they invariably run through the headlines till they find the items they prefer. To some, it is international news, followed by national and regional. Some readers straightway go to the sports page. And, to those matter-of-fact people, it is over to the business page!. Advertisements remain undisturbed or at the most get a casual look.

But, gone are those days. Advertisements are not sidelined by the readers now-a-days. They occupy half the space even on front pages and capture your attention, not necessarily for the valuable items they want us to buy. Your eyes rest on those wonderful Photos or elegant paintings and the equally good captions or comments. Just have a look at these Ads; You will surely come out with a “Wow”. If we are in the midst of some festival seasons, you can have your fill!

Of course, you don’t skip the News items but you are tempted to take a short break, off and on to have a look at those pictures!

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.
