Venerable Co-existance

Urbanization, invariably, results in construction of new houses in rural areas or even in agricultural lands available in urban areas. It is a clear indication that business is flourishing in and around such places. All these developments rob the charm of rural areas especially when trees and plants are mercilessly cut down.
Anyway, even now, there are still places where urbanization is not at the expense of charming trees and plants. The other day I happened to visit such areas where there are houses, houses all the way… big and small but they could not outshine the trees and meadows. Moreover, even the new houses looked more like the good old houses of yore!

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.
