Crazy people, News: My opinions, People

Such things do happen

Be it print or electronic media or any news channels, you have to wait patiently for some heartwarming news. The other day, while I was waiting for a friend of mine near a petty shop, there were some guys who were taking about some news items which had appeared in almost all newspapers. During this short period, they had covered a lot of latest reports, local and national (mostly politics or about some not so interesting items)
Then, I broke in and said, “Ok friends, have you read or heard about a very interesting or inspiring one…”
“About what?” one of them asked, “About a young man who found a leather bag lying on the road… it was about 7pm while he was returning from his work place. This gentleman picked up the bag… There was no body else there and to his surprise, he found bundles of 1000 – rupee notes. Immediately he went to the nearest police station and handed over the bundle to the officer-in-charge.
He was praised sky – high by the officer and the constables because the amount in the bag was as high as 91000 rupees”. The guys made a sarcastic response. “Hmm?” and left the place!

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.
