Certain chain reactions

It was 7.30 am; 3 hours earlier than my usual time for a stroll.  But, I was on the move so that I could be at the polling booth before the queue gets longer.  I had already made up my mind and there was no need for any mental arguments.  And, as i was moving ahead mechanically,  I had one more look at the sky.  Oh, it was spotlessly blue!  The tender rays of the morning sun were caressing the green.  clad hills and the multi-coloured buildings which lay scattered all over the hills.  There was something serene and calm about the morning.  Suddenly, a clueless situation crept into my mind… What was the secret behind Achuettan’s special attachment to that new chap?

The other day I happened to find a couple of chapters of my misplaced and unfinished novel… Will I succeed in rebuilding the main plot?  Most likely, for the plot for this half-furnished novel took birth while I was on an evening walk when the setting sun and the wonderful surroundings did the magic!

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.
