Elections, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Funny accusations!

The results of the forthcoming general elections (Lok Sabha) may not be on the expected lines, but as the campaign is in progress, the people are less concerned about the outcome mainly because the chief actors look more like comedians than heroes who play serious multi roles. Even when they make sarcastic remarks about the opponents, they do not lose their temper; instead they make a quick search for some funny replies.

The smaller parties too are as confused as the voters. Whatever may be the outcome of the elections, both Mr. Rahul or Mr. Modi seem to be less nervous than their followers. By the way, right now all eyes are on Mr. Kejriwal… not because his party has a better chance but because of his strange ways to capture the attention of all.

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.
