All is well, that end well

Sumathi was in a Predicament, just when she was getting ready to enter one of her favorite restaurant after spending a couple of hours in a shopping mall, fully exploiting the weekly freedom granted by her hubby who was busy even on Sundays.

To her shock and surprise, her ex-lover was sitting in a corner of the restaurant, sipping his tea. She could very well visit some other restaurants but she knew the purpose of his visit to this city. One of her friends has informed her over the phone that he would take revenge on her for letting him down.

The other day I happened to fish out a few papers from an old leather bag and incidentally it contained the manuscript of one of my short stories (written 7 or 8 years ago). After reading a page or two I decided to recall how I shaped the events and how I ended the Predicament of Sumathi?.

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.
