Inspiring indeed

The bespectacled orthodox lady was gathering some information from a ruffian. Both were speaking the same language but certain words used by them were Greek to each other, especially those abusive terms. Anyway, she managed to gather all the information from that chap whose parting ‘kick’ was inaudible! Then, it was soliloquy on her part. With a broad smile on her face, she said, “my hubby earns a lot, but the poor chap has to spend a lot on my sarees….all silk sarees…which should match the color of the bus I travel or the taxi-cab or my mobile phones. Hee-hee!”
As soon as the child-participant finished her quota, there was a thunderous applause from the judges and the audience…those who watched her performance on their TVs would have done the same thing. The child bowed her head to one and all, humbly repeating “Thanks-Thanks”. There were several other kids who participated in this competition and most of them were equally smart.
Hats off to the TV channels which give these kids an opportunity to exhibit their hidden talents and of course, to these wonderful kids who entertain the elders and inspire other kids!

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.
