TEA TIME TALES
By Neel Anil Panicker
A raconteur par excellence, Aunt Elle was a dream hostess, her doors including the front that led to the Marina, the two side ones and the back that was a hop, skip and jump to the only football ground in a three mile radius of Elloor Village.
Hot piping mint tea to be savoured with crispy cherry topped chocolate biscuits the size of a cutesy postage stamp was her bait.
Those hooked were regaled to a heady cocktail of eclectic make believe tales garnished with crackling wit that was her calling card.
Those’re the days, the old timers would recall, wistfully.
