A wild guess indeed!

When one’s body and mind are reluctant to go out for an evening walk, one’s only option is to sit at home, blaming the weather. But, rain or shine, the very same body and mind succumb to the inner call, at times! And, off you go to have a glimpse of the outside world, preferably to areas where nature is company enough for you.
On such days when your reluctant body and mind repeat the age old mantra, “Home, sweet home”, you spend your time watching TV shows… songs and jokes, of which some are worth watching umpteen times.
But, the other day, I happened to watch a comedy program conducted by a TV channel. The subject was an interview for a couple of jobs in government run transport department. The sting was very clear but the spectators burst into laughter. The comedy was a worth seeing but not more than once or twice. Yet, I watched it several times on the ipad with the sole purpose of taking a close look at one of the spectators who reminded me of my college days. After several looks, I came to the conclusion that he looked exactly like one of my class mates. May be this chap is my friend’s son….No, I don’t want to make a wild guess; but his smiles…

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.
