The best thing about the Lord and Master (L&M) is that there is one in almost every family. While some are acknowledged indulgently as the supreme beings that they imagine themselves to be, others remain unsung. When I had started the series, I had done it out of sheer frustration but slowly warmed up to it, seeing the protagonist enjoying them, even correcting me or offering suggestions for more posts by reminding me of his numerous ‘exploits’. Well to make a long story short, he and the brats – the older of whom is a father himself – came to grace my blog. Not surprisingly, they are among the most popular posts.
The first piece about the L&M and the Brats was published in the now defunct Eve’s magazine way back in 1991 and subsequently in other publications including the Times of India, Delhi. The success of the pieces kept me writing about their endearing (exasperating?) antics and the encouragement from the trio was heartening. Incidentally, the erstwhile Brats have been threatening to sue me for defamation!
Do enjoy the posts under the category The Lord & M and the Brats.
