Chennai is known for three seasons —hot, hotter and hottest and IPL is known for three SSS and I don’t have to say what they mean, as everyone who is obsessed with cricket will know what they stand for. But to someone who has a passing interest in the game, more important things matter and they have to do with our very survival, rather my survival to be precise. Top on my list is safe drinking water and I got a scare of my life when I heard the suppliers were going on a strike. But I was relieved to know the brand of water being supplied to us was indeed available however for a price and the highest bidder would get the priority.
Whoever thought auctions are held and the highest bidder walks away with whatever he fancies, are mistaken. Only difference perhaps is in the case of the life saver and health preserver, it is not second hand or used stuff!
Second on my list is our part time maid who had to go on medical leave for a surgery and another part timer has gone on a summer vacation along with her family.
Well, I see no point in grumbling about the scorching heat of Chennai because it has its own benefits of providing us with free vitamin D, so essential to keep our limbs fit.
