Waiting… 

The heat and the earth are so much a part of some people. It seems that they are carved out of the very stone on which they rest their weary bodies… 

Patience courses through their veins like blood. They know not to hurry time… They have been at it mercy always… 

Now they sit still, as still as the figures engraved upon the urns that they wait to sell….

A Mysterious Morning 

 When fog descends, it obliterates all features that one is familiar with, the same old landscape becomes mysterious, captivating and enchanting. The swirling mist reminds one of stories written by  Ruskin Bond in the hills of Mussoorie. 
I enter the fog to reach a fish pond where the fish wait patiently to be fed. When i look back there is no home, just a blank wall of fog! 

Such days happen a few times in the Delhi winter and when they do..they infuse the being with a chilling excitement

After much cajoling the mother managed to distract her enough to be still for a bit 😊

The big black mark on the babys forehead is to ward off the evil eye and is put by most parents on small children.

  

Another perspective, another Life..

  The temperature is soaring high in New Delhi. As I wait at the red light crossing, I survey my surroundings.The landscape looks dreary and bleak. Suddenly the side view mirror reflects a startling burst of colour in the form of balls being transported on a bicycle. The visibly hunched man propels his cargo through the sweltering heat that I was complaining about from my air-conditioned car…
