Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Problems galore

In a democratic country like India political rivalries loom large and the people have to face all sorts of problems in the form of frequent demonstrations, strikes and violence.

Those who indulge in such activities (mostly on filmsy grounds) are not in the least concerned about the problems faced by the people. As far as the political parties are concerned, they have different strategies on such occasions depending on whether they are in power or not. A solution to such problems could be found if the major political parties are prepared to rise above petty rivalries.

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.
