On The Road

October 1, 2013 Leave a comment

If you could pause real life and spend some time living with a family anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us TRAVELS.

 

I have a long list of favourite destinations to visit and if I were to select a country where I could spend some time with a family it would be Spain first and then France.

I am in awe of the Spanish people – their high energy, enthusiasm and bubbly nature. I would love to soak in the culture and learn more about their ways of life.

France is another favourite destination for me because I learnt French in school and about the wonderful places and food but have yet to experience it first hand.

Ofcourse there are a lot of places I would also love to visit in my home country India – like Rajasthan,  Assam, Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Agra etc.

So – some day I would love to pack my bags and head down to these destinations.

The bugle sounds for you

April 14, 2011 33 comments

As the sun sets
He is laid to rest
The bugle sounds and guns fire
A nation pays tribute to a soldier

He fought with honour and without fear
To protect our country from foes
He stood guarding our borders
As seasons changed around him

Far away from his home
Leaving wife and son alone
A soldier fought a war
So that we are at peace

Braving bullets and bombs
Without food and sleep
He is alert all day
Keeping enemies at bay

The earth upon which we tread
He worshipped till he was dead
Fighting hard for our freedom
What a noble patriot he was

Then one day he fell down fighting
A bullet tore through his chest
With a cry for freedom on his lips
He lay down his life for us

A tearful wife and son
Are joined by a whole nation
We salute the brave soldier
And his noble sacrifice
