Those unexpected twists!

It is all set for a satisfactory finish. The heroine, the embodiment of sacrifices and all good qualities gets the green signal for her marriage from all and sundry. Her would-be, an equally great person is all smiles when he overcomes all hurdles which prolonged his agonies and ecstasies. The “crazy” viewers too heaved a sigh of relief.
But when the day’s episode seemed to end on a happy note, there appears the courier chap to deliver a letter addressed to the heroine’s farther. He opens the cover and pulls out a letter and a photo. He reads the short letter and looks at the photo. He is totally upset, much to the embarrassment of all at home. That day’s episode ended there but the next episode which we watch on the next day gives enough indications that this serial will last for several months!
The photo enclosed with that anonymous letter was that of the hero and a young lady which gave rise to the fear that the heroine’s would-be was in love or had some sort of close relationship with that dame! Whatever it may be, the viewers will have to put up with new developments for long before everything comes to a happy ending.

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.
