When you look back

Of all creatures on earth, the one and only ‘creature’ which could change the world beyond recognition is undoubtedly the Human beings. Of course, for centuries, they lived like other fellow creatures, unmindful of the wonders all-around.
Then slowly but steadily, they discovered that they are superior being capable of living in a “super world” according to their whims and fancies.
Even as they achieved their goals one by one, there were super beings among them who were obsessed with their curiosities.
After the necessary bases were laid, these intellectuals introduced so many new items and the most wanted things were undoubtedly wealth and education.
Anyway, whatever may be the new discoveries and developments, we are tempted to look back, especially when we see the forests which have survived and we whisper to ourselves, “Oh they are connected to our ancestral houses!”

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.
