Village Scenes.....


" Dedicating this to My Grand Mother Who left Me on the 22nd of September......I know that You will be watching Me from the Sky as a Star....as Once You have told Me.....The Stars that are Twinkling at You are Your Dear One's......Love You "Amooma"...!!! "


Well People....After a long Interval I am back......Had some hectic days......Now I am free....Its murky out.....As I looked out My Mind travelled to some where else.....I was thinking about Gandhiji....as today is Gandhi Jayanthi.....that thought took me to Villages....as Once he said....Go back to Villages ...right..??

Now Going back to villages.....I basically belong to a village.....A place where I see green every where....A place where the nature Plays the Music for My Song.....A place where I see People Pure at heart...A place where the Sun,Sky and the Dew provides me with light, shade and drops of happiness........

Taking a long walk through a village road can be much interesting......It takes you to ecstasy...but to enjoy all these You need a gud mind....A mind pure at heart....A mind which can talk to the singing birds,the whistling wind and the nodding plants.......How many of You have this...??

The Kind of atmosphere that You can get from a village is entirely different from that of a City...If you need Serenity you need to be there........Taking a Long dive into the tittering river....a pleasant swim......splashing the water into the face of your friend and a long run to Your home through the paddy field in a wet condition.....suddenly...You slips into the paddy field.....just giggling at your friend..alas...its clay,.......

Throwing Stones at the Mango Tree aiming at the Ripe Ones....but Most of the time You gets the Small Sour Mangoes.....Some how Manages to eat it with the Salt and Chilly Powder that you have already treasured from the kitchen.......

After having that only You realises that you are red hot and tears are coming from your eyes.......to get away from this condition...you starts throwing stones again....at last prays to the wind.......and.....

Finally....You decides to get into the tree to get those ripe ones........some how you manages to be in the top of the tree...suddenly you realises that the tree was full of ants.....you some how plucks some ......jumps out of the tree from the lowest branch....by this time your body will be covered with ants.......manages to laugh with others .....though you were chafed and annoyed by the ants.....Am I missing all these..???

Smiling at that Innocent Girl...nearby with a Naughty Look...with the Expectation that She May smile back.....but here... She Runs away from You....and then Hiding some where...Just to watch whether You are Looking at her...........

Having that Yummy Dishes that were made from the Crops from your field....the kind of taste that touches your taste buds.......a long nap under the bamboo tree.......

Running behind those hens to get them into their hidey-hole......so that they will be secure till next morning.......fetching water from the well......to take a cool bath.......

A long run to the River side.....to say Wishes to the setting sun....Collecting some hay.......Feeding those cattles......with some serious talks with them......

A short prayer at the end of the day with that respect and dignity....that God deserves......

Astounding at the stars ...just to see whether they have formed any shapes.......smiling at them as they twinkles at me.......

Being there with the Grand Mother to study some Lessons and to hear some Tales......as they are unique in its character......having dinner with some talks about the day...and a safe and happy sleep on the mat next to her bed..........

Am I missing all these..???....


Yes I do.........I am Missing each and every thing........As time plays its role......these memories are fading away from My mind......I can only watch them.......weeping at them.....like a small child who screams at his father to get the Moon........


"Beyond Powers.......Beyond Imaginations......Beyond Creativity...there is a World....a World Of Eternity.....Let her Rest In Peace....!!! "

Dear Didi,

We all are Missing those Old Days.....Its a Pity that We Could Only Watch Our Villages turning into Concrete Jungles..as Society says its "Development".....Lets Hope that our Fellow Beings Will Understand the Value of Villages Soon....

Take Care....
