Crazy people, Issues in India, News: My opinions, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests


The good old slogan, “UNITY IN DIVERSITY” is knocking on my mind even as the print and electronic media are flooded with reports of conflicts between different political parties which bring everything to a stand still. What used to be a regional affair, is now spreading all over the nation, especially when national parties blame each other for some un happy developments..(It could be some corruption charges or some other vexing issues that could be solved without much fanfare. Even some happy occasions like the PM’s visit to a neighbouring country could lead to an unnecessary controversy)
Politicians, at times, are impatient and least worried about the after effects of some of their unpleasant remarks about some senior leaders.

Anyway, it is hightime the leaders of the senior parties set an example to the party workers at least for the sake of the youngsters or rather their own younger versions. Let them chant “The Unity in Diversity” Mantra when unpleasant political developments occur!

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.
