The problem is not with aging but entering the danger zone

Aging is not a problem, but entering the danger zone is

“Hello! Gopaln Nair. Happy Onam”

” Edo, Sami! I am Govindan, not Goplan Nair.”
” How does it matter whether you are Gopalan or Govindan; you are Nair alright?”
`Hello! It may not matter to you; but it matters to my wife”
“How?”
” My insurance policy is in the name of Govindan Nair”
” Ammini is a woman of wisdom. What payasam has she prepared for Onam?’
” Sami! You are getting old too fast .Today is Vishu and not Onam”
“How does it matter whether today is Onam or Vishu ?  your wife will prepare Palpayasam, I know”
“You are wrong again. your wife is preparing palpayasam ; not mine”
`But why should she come and prepare the palpayasam in your house. Our kitchen is not big enough for her size?”
“ She is cooking in her own kitchen and not mine”
“How do you know that, unless you are in my house?”
“I am in your house!’

“Doing what? Pestering my wife to make appam and vada?”
“No need. My wife is already doing that in your kitchen”
“Gopalan Nair. Give the phone to my wife”
” I am telling you again, Sami. My name is Govindan Nair. Speak to Ammalu.”
“Ammalu! What is Ammini doing in your kitchen?”
“Ammini is not in our kitchen. We both are in Theresa kutti’s kitchen. You forgot that we all came here to celebrate Christmas?”
“I came along with you? Where am I now?”
“In the backyard of this house , wasting money on calls?”
“Call Jacob.”
“He is standing behind you”
“Jacob, are you behind me?”
“No. you are behind me”

“’Who stands behind whom, I care not
Who moves ahead is what I look for”
Have you forgotten this famous couplet of Vyasa in his ‘Valmiki Ramayanam?. Our English professor Neelakantan Sir used to take one full hour to explain the meaning of those two lines. “
“Sami! It was Kalidasa and not Shakespeare who wrote that. You have completely forgotten your Physics”
‘Jocob! We were discussing about chemistry and not literature”
“Let me ask Menon. Edo, Menon!  Who wrote Macbeth, Valmiki or Vyasa?”
“Thante Atchan. Theresa kutty wants both of you here immediately.She is hungry”
“Jacob! Menon is getting hot .Poor guy, he is aging. Are we also aging Jacob? After all we are the same group”
“We are not. Our women are aging. Ammini remembers the name of the policy holder, Ammalu noticed that you are wasting calls and Theresa
remembers that I am her husband”
”’Any way let us get inside and eat. Theresa kutty is hungry. I can’t see my wife starving.”
“Ente Karthave! Now he is entering  into danger zone.Sami, you are definitely aging.”
‘Ha,ha,ha! You have started loving your wife and therefore you are aging man!”
