Facts and Fiction, Issues in India, Politics in India, Strikes and Protests

Keep your distance from Politics, please!

The involvement of University students in politics may appear to be an unavoidable practice in view of certain unpleasant developments that distract their attention from studies: But the students must realize that most of the issues are on flimsy grounds prepared by certain political parties who are of the view that their survival depends to some extent on getting the support of students.

What the students have to realize is that what appears to be a Himalayan issue may just be as small as a steep road crossed without much effort in their part. Above all, most of the unpleasant issues could be solved without politicizing the matter. All of them should take a vow, “we can solve it ourselves… Bye, Bye”

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.
