Singer, not the song!

“A beautiful evening during Fall when leaves were shedding at will and the Sun looked as smart!… I saw her!”, a few lines from a movie song which inspired me. I was scratching my hair, trying to recall a few lines from a similar song. Yes, I looked here and there to know whether I was alone in that park. Yes, there was no body, though a few squirrels were running here and there. I got it! Here are those lines;
“She walks in beauty like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies. All that is best of dark and blue meet in her eyes and aspects. I kept on recalling such songs even as I was enjoying the evening walk. But, somehow or other, a latest news, not so pleasant crossed my mind and spoiled my mood, it was about a misunderstanding between a song writer and a singer. The former was in a bad mood when he criticized the singer. Anyway, the answer in my mind was, ‘Singer, not the Song!’

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.
