Fly back....

6

...i was wondering..
if at-least half the people settled abroad decided to go back to India...
and help in contribution towards the betterment of the society.
help with education
help with fighting terrorism....
and in removing poverty...

I am sure India will be a better place then.

And they are all gone now..

Yellow

oh i miss these now..
They were already there on the ground ... and no more on the trees...
today the workers gathered all the leaves that were on the grounds also and took it away.
It felt like as if they were taking an essential part away.
Even though they were all dead leaves, I still felt some connection with it.

I stood there in the cold.. and just watched them being taken away.

The photographs and the memories will remain! :)

Gone Fishing?

Fishing Anyone?

....today for the first time this winter season, the pond in front of my house froze.
I felt happy at the situation as it looked cool.
But suddenly the wind hit my face hard. I realized the harsh reality.
And then I felt sad.
Of the cold days.
The colder nights.
The coldest early mornings.
Today it was -8C when i went to catch the bus.

There is a kid...

There is a kid...

...inside each one of us.
Inspite of how old one grows, this kid does not grow.

It should not grow either.

It is that kid, who knows to be creative. Who thinks of the world as his canvas and paints all the possible colors with his imagination.
This kid who is exploratory and is not afraid to fail as he has not tasted success in all things he has tried.
The kid who does not care much about being told what to do, what not to do.
This kid who thinks the world is a playground and having fun is the sole purpose of life.

Classroom

Class room

Today someone in the class was complaining about the class not having sufficient power points, as she was unable to put the plug for her laptop to charge.
It reminded me of this picture of a classroom that I had taken sometime back.

Note, the children take their classes standing standing.
In the sun, out in the open.

Point of view

A marvel .. a trap...

Anything can be good or bad.
A marvel or a trap.
It depends on how you look at it.

Love Fades....

Love Fades....

...over time.
In difficult situations.

One needs to stand together.
And let that grow and not fade.

Hope..

I will not stop to be hopeful.
I will only be optimistic.
I will smile everyday no matter what.
