How romantic ! July 20, 2006

Soon after he took over as Minister for Overseas Indian Affairs, an English newspaper in India wrote that Vayalar Ravi once kidnapped a woman, and that AK Antony and Oommen Chandy, both of whom went on to become chief ministers of Kerala state, had abetted the crime.

‘It was true,’ Ravi, who turned 70 recently, said while referring to his marriage to Mercy Ravi, who till recently was a member of the state Assembly.

The two met when he was a student leader and she was a student at a women’s college. Antonty and Chandy were students in the college, and officials of the Kerala Students Union, at the time. Ravi was the senior leader, and the others helped him get the girl he was in love with, in the face of parental objection.

Very very interesting. One thing it shows is that we do so many things as children, teens and young adults without ever most often expecting that these would :

1. pass off as party time anecdotes if you grow up to be not so famous.

2. become skeletons in the cupboard giving rise to media reports and blogosphere humor/censure if you become a celebrity.

That shouldnt mean anything. As kids and teens, we must have a good time anyway. ( But try hard not to kidnap your girlfriend – that should be nothing less than the last resort 🙂 ).
