If winter comes…

After my post lunch cat nap, I looked around and said, “It is bright and Sunny’. Soon I was forced to ask myself, “Are’nt you shivering Head to foot?”. I was not prepared for an answer to this lethargic question but I gave a silent reply by going to the kitchen to prepare the mood-changing coffee and in a jiffy, I was back to form, singing my favorite song (a few lines indeed): “if winter comes, can spring be far behind:”

Then after ten minutes or so, I heard some passers-by talking about the possibility of a rain in a couple of hours. “shit:, I shouted and turned around to have a look at the sky and said “od, the black cloud and the sunshine are playing hide and seek. Let me put on my warm cloth and get ready to watch the T.V. Serials!”

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.
