Ooty, seasons

Oh, for a Sunny day!

After a long innings of cloudy and rainy days, the sky in Ooty was all set for a glorious innings from the opposition team led by sun.
All these days, the atmosphere was filled with, “oh for a sunny day” from every nook and corner.
Yeah, whoever you meet on the road or at the Tea shop would ask you, “How long will it last?”
It is not as if Ooty and the surrounding areas were thrashed by rain without any break but when the sun is visible one could be sure of the fact that the so called sunny hours are soon to be blocked by the approaching cloudy patches!
It is not as if any of us are against rainy days but what we need is the Presence of the glorious sun at regular intervals. Don’t we exclaim, “oh for a rain!” when it is too hot during the summer days?

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.
