A thing of beauty is a joy for ever!

After watching my usual quota of TV serials between 6 pm and 9 pm, instead of switching off, I changed the channel casually, and there it was! And, what more, The very scene which has been haunting my mind for the last couple of days whenever I was on my evening walk, was in progress. The young couple after overcoming some tiff between them were seen in a lovely garden and soon one could experience the ‘heaven on earth’ feelings… The serene atmosphere, the melodious song and the apt music which captured the gentle sound of the falling leaves and the chirping of the small birds which were watching the ‘fun’ when the much-awaited scene and song were over, I said to myself,

“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever!”.

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.
