Still in Demand

Though the world is flooded with various sources of information, the print media has its own charm. Of course, even the print media has changed a lot but the basic qualities such as cartoons, “Letters to the Editor” and the sports column are still there.

As far as the good old days are concerned, we used to wait, eagerly every morning for the day’s popular newspapers [English, and Vernacular newspapers] for our favorite topics. The tastes of the elders and the children were not much different, when it touched upon cricket and cartoons. By the way, there were a couple of journals known for funny cartoons! We still remember some of those cartoons.

Habits die hard. Even now, howsoever old we are, we eagerly wait for the day’s newspaper or certain modern journals which publish some funny articles about presidents or prime ministers, accompanied by very interesting cartoons!

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.
