Crazy people, Elections, News: My opinions, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Thus far and no further

To be or not to be, that is the question whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of the existing regime or to usher in the untested group and let things move on slowly and steadily as has been don till now?

In a couple of months, the people of India will be in a dilemma but these are those who want to exploit the election eve soft corner of the political parties and hold the country to ransom. Strikes and demonstrations are not new to India, but when it comes to grievances of those belonging to essential services, it is thus far and no further. Inspite of such restrictions accepted by all, one wonders why the country was held to ransom for 2 days by such employees?

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.
