How about a playful hide and seek

“I am the monarch of all I survey…”

“Uhm… I know the rest of those immortal lines… you need not repeat them here. Right now, you are the lord of fowl and brute… You can even add… and those majestic trees and the vast sky. But, don’t you think that you are, in fact, highlighting the dull part of the day or rather revealing your sadistic tendencies?”

“Be patient guys. What’ll happen if it were sunny days all through the year? Those of you who praise such days sky high also curse those hot days, especially when it is too hot and last till 9pm… let me ask you one more question” the rain seemed to ask… “what stupid pleasure do you guys get by singing that age-old song ‘Rain, Rain go away…?’ What will happen if I go away. What will be the fate of the lakes, rivers and other sources of water?”

“Ok boss”, I replied; “You are absolutely correct but could you please play hide and seek with the Sun for a couple of hours in the evening… it is my humble request Sir!”

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.
