The silent few

The annual budget in India receives high Praise from the ruling Party and its supporters and criticisms of various kinds from political parties opposed to the ruling party at the centre. It takes quite some time for the ruling party to settle down. By then, the people would have got used to price hikes and some benefits.
Amidst all these pros and cons, there may be a couple of items which suffer constant beatings from all parties and no body, not even the affected people raise a hue and cry. The real trouble makers are allowed to have their own violent approach, come what may.

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.
