Issues in India, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Peace and Prosperity

When Indian intellectuals scholars and sports persons (notably cricket) hit the headlines, they become notable persons not only in India but in other countries as well. But, going beyond such achievements our youngsters and elders have to pay great attention to peace and prosperity without which, all our efforts to achieve top positions will wither into oblivion.
One problem in India which needs to be overcome as quickly as possible is petty quarrels between neighboring states which bring everything to a standstill, resulting in destruction of public properties, specially buses and lorries.
Political parties seem to be incapable of solving such problems and resort to violence. As such, one would expect those who are in favor of “unity in diversity” to make their presence felt by spreading the slogan, “peace and prosperity”.

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.
