Peace and Prosperity

What the world needs now is peace. By peace I do not mean silence and meditation. There must be scientific discoveries, developments on all fronts and elimination of poverty.
Democracy may be the best form of Government but it should rise above frequent quarrels, walkouts and oneupmanship.
Let there be friendly competitions between political parties and even between neighboring countries but the sole purpose should be to climb up and up to the Himalayan heights. Even when you are way behind you should draw inspiration from the winners!
Let there be umpteen religions but the followers should live up to the expectations of those who love peace and godliness.

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.
