An evening walk indeed!

A lazy mind may have hundred excuses to make it appear that an evening walk is worthless but an “adamant self” defies the order and pushes you out with a smile. The beginning of my evening walk on that day looked neither clumsy nor dynamic! So, off I went, enjoying the race between the farmers and construction workers. New buildings were coming up but not at the expense of the farmers who were working hard in the field. My only concern was the absence of birds who would fly around making some musical sounds.

Any way, when I found myself alone, I asked the birds, “what happened to those cows and buffalos?” and their reply was “Do you enjoy their rocky sounds and ugly look?”

And the Credit goes to…

The world has undergone a sea-change and the credit goes to the scientists of the past and present. The changes will go on and on but one would hope that these scientists are just like our fellow travelers with some difference in their approach. We have to repeat the fact that while we, the ordinary chaps, enjoy the beauty of the world, the scientists keep on producing new wonders to make the world less troublesome! But some of the so called troubles are really joys that we should not miss!

In view of the above facts, let us worship the changes and let the older things be as fresh as ever so that we will not miss other wonders produced by the sun, moon and the sea and hundreds of birds and their songs… and other beauties of nature including the man-made beauties!

Blue Umbrella

It was blue all over! East or West, north or South; not merely dominating but snatching their share equally and fully! “Yeah, it is for you guys who curse us for being cloudy or sunny to the core. So, enjoy it without cursing us for being what we are or what we are not. You may ignore us but not yours kids! So, wait for their reactions… Here they are. “Daddy, it is a blue tent”. “Mom, here is a huge Umbrella”. “A blue one, so big!” “Uncle, what happened to those white and red colours?”

Anyway, when nature is free from rain or summer showers, the sky is invariably darkish white or playing hide and seek. Right now, it looks like a huge blue umbrella!

When you are lazy!

To be or not to be … That’s the question. Whether it is nobler in the mind to drag on in my own insipid way or to take arms against all lame excuses to drag on and on?

It is still there… the bone-chilling weather and a lazy mind! Anyway, before taking the pen and paper, I went to the kitchen to prepare my favorite coffee and said to myself, “feel the aroma, and sip, sip, sip!” wow!

I picked up the day’s Newspaper and started reading. Thank god! Most of the news items were as dull as ever and I laid the papers down and took out an old magazine… and went through the Joke-Column for a while and stopped writing. If winter comes can summer be far behind!
