Humor, In real life

Beware of small errors

History repeats itself. If it were a harmless laughter-Provoking incident, you can store it up in your memory so that you won’t be the one who does it.
The other day I happened to meet an acquaintance of mine. After going through the usual, “How are you” and such formalities, he said that he cut a sorry figure a couple of days after his friend’s daughter’s wedding.
“Was he not happy with your gift?” I asked.
He looked surprised and told me, “The gift is ok but unfortunately, it was the very same item which was presented by him when my daughter’s marriage took place. My wife was so careless that she forgot to remove the “Best wishes” slip pasted on the gift!” “Oh there is nothing to worry, such incidents happen on such occasions… Forget it!”, I pacified him.

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.
