People, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

If there is a will, there is a way

I Came across the following lines while reading a book entitled, “Glorious thoughts on education”
Do all the good you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
At all times you can
To all the people you can
As long as ever you can
I closed the book because I was haunted by the ugly events that were going on in some of our universities. Fortunately, I found the NBT newsletter (January 2016) on my table. The first article of the same carried was an inspiring one which took me to great heights. It is about India, that is Bharath.
It is about our cultural legacy with more than 5000 year old civilization to its credit. The relevant line says, “With more than 5000 year old civilization that continues uninterrupted, the Indian cultural legacy is characterized by a certain plurality, rich diversity and multilingual tonal hues. The variation of this cultural legacy from north to south and east to west is seen in people, dress, cuisine, tradition, knowledge systems, art and performance”.
Let us go ahead, carrying these glorious things on our shoulders so that we will keep our universities free from petty quarrels and all that. We have to (and we can) achieve great things.

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.
