“Madras Eye!!!”, exclaimed my friend after looking into my eyes. My eyes have turned bright red giving me a sinister look. Conjunctivitis had unleashed havoc in my life. Just like a hurricane that leaves behind devastation in it’s wake, conjunctivitis has left it’s trail of destruction in my life.
I was at a small ceremony in Kerala to celebrate the 60th birthday of a dear one! Everyone who attended the ceremony is down with conjunctivitis! So much for precaution against a communicable disease. Now, there is nothing much to be done other than to wait for the ordeal to get over!
Coming back to my friend’s statement, it kept me wondering! Madras Eye? Shouldn’t be called the Chennai Eye? When are the purists going to wake up and rename it?
