Invigorating songs

“My eyes were wide open. Yet I saw a dream… all because of you.” One of my favorite movie songs was on the air and I crossed over to the other side of the busy road and positioned myself close to a shop which sells items connected with songs and movies.

All my irritations paled into thin air as I was enjoying the song. Soon I found myself in a “To be or not to be” situation. The next song was also good but it got submerged in the noise of a heavily loaded lorry. It was green signal to leave the place towards the provision shop and I finished that job quickly and moved on. May be because of that invigorating song, I did not feel tried as usual and skipped the auto rickshaw and walked all the way to my house. Indeed I could save some money.

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.
