Some Newspapers in India give an opportunity to the readers to express their views on men and matters through certain columns exclusively meant for this purpose. Most of the articles which appear in these columns are humorous and invariably based on some interesting incidents at home.

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.

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.
