Some relief indeed!

Too many rules and regulations haunt the people almost daily and the people unable to resist them, accept such rules unwillingly. The authorities concerned exhibit their power by various means with a view to irritating the people, specially, the senior citizens who, on such occasions, come out with their routine, “ in the good old days…” Anyway, they get some relief from the 6 PM to 9 PM T.V. shows (serials or stand –up comedies which are available on most of the TV channels in different languages (Even in English, though the comedians have to be a bit careful in order not to offend those who watch them.

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.
