The one with Venkatraghavan
It is well know that I have a policy to not hobnob and respond to celebrities who try to unnecessarily socialize with me in functions and events. I applied the strict policy to cricketer Venkatraghavan when we met in a Nischyadartham recently. I knew he had great respect for me and wanted to talk to me. But as we sat next to each other chewing copious quantities of beetel nut/leaves, we only chose to nod at each other as a non-verbal way of showing our mutual admiration for each other.
As a courtesy, I did not mention the word Otis Gibson to him. I am quite congenial that way.
