Newspapers are flooded with election related reports and analysis by experts. Of course, pre-poll calculations are very difficult in view of the huge number of political parties and participants. We hear about the Modi-waves or about the 50-50 chances of the Congress -led front and the possibilities of regional forces ensuring a hung parliament. Well, and good ! But, when someone predicts an Indian revolution and things like that, we are literally scared. We don’t want any revolution here because that will lead to mobocracy and anarchy. We do not want any new experiments either.

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. View all posts by P U Krishnan
