Just Now the Lilac is in Bloom

It was a pleasant surprise to me to come across a few lines in a poem which resembled my own words written a few days ago. Of course, the style was not so similar but the ideas did look similar. Quoted below are the first few lines of the poem, “Leisure”

What is this life if, Full of Care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
No time to see, When Woods We Pass
Where Squirrels hide their nuts in grass

Rain or shine, how so ever busy you are, won’t you please set aside an hour or so to watch wonders of nature. Just keep doing it everyday… You will certainly agree with that Poet.

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.
