What’s in a name?

I prefer random reading between lunch and siesta. Newspapers are flooded with vexing reports about scams, protests, election strategies and all those occurrences which are not suitable when your intention is to catch a cat-nap!

Usually, I pickup some old journals or magazines which set apart enough space for jokes or some light articles.

The otherday,while I was getting ready for a catnap after lunch, the latest issue of one of my favorite magazines was lying on my bed and when I casually opened it I saw the feedback of an article which appeared on the previous issue. It was a critical piece on a popular annual international award for literature. The complaint was that it skipped deserved ones very often in favour of less deserving writers and surprisingly one such author was an Indian for whom I have great respect and admiration. You would have guessed by now who that author was!

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.
