I am not lazy and I am not a fitness freak. I do Yoga practice twice a week, walk to places that are near-by, take the stairs daily in my office; at the same time I do enjoy eating (especially multi-cuisine). Right from my school days I was not into any sports regularly, other than a year when I took Tennis classes.
So I was surprised myself when I joined in to play a brief innings of cricket during my company’s annual offsite today at Mamallapuram. My batting and bowling (one over each) was just about acceptable I think; my colleagues I suppose kept quite, out of prudence of not making fun of their boss!.
To all my friends who will not believe that I played, see the pictures below. Thanks to my colleague “RK” who took the pictures.
Exhausted (!) after the game, I sat down in the beach sand, looking at the ocean and resting. Nothing relaxes more than just watching the waves.
Then they called me in for a Karaoke session. I was sitting in the back, when the DJ played one of my favourite songs – Vannam Konde Ven Nilave from Sigaram (வண்ணம் கொண்ட வெந்நிலவே) I got myself to go to the mike and start singing. Since I knew the lyrics by-heart I was residing (singing) the entire song in one go, the DJ (wisely) interrupted and kept the mike to himself for rest of the session.
