Cricket, Facts and Fiction, Mood, Weather

Hats off to…

At times, one’s mind remains stagnant and all the efforts to come out with something worthwhile are blown away as if they are dry leaves we fin don roads or sidewalks. Be it politics or other important issues or even funny things, one’s mind keeps saying “shit” and your eyes look the other way, condemning your mood.
The other day, I was in such a dilemma or rather, in a “to be or not to be situation” and was on the verge of saying “bye-bye”; but one of the cricket-crazy guys unexpectedly touched upon the very same subject and I woke up from my “dull-as dust” mood as usual, I burst into “runs”…
And, when we were half-way through our favorite subject we were also resting on our favorite phrase, “But, Sachin in Sachin”!

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.
