Independence day has come and gone. Flags were hoisted all over the city and people exhibited that smidgeon of patriotism they especially reserve for this day. All of a sudden, their heart swelled with pride as songs from Hindi movies played in the background.
Women’s Day …
International Women’s Day …
The day of celebrating womanhood … primarily by sharing stock photos stolen from Google and shared on various social media forums with a message of ‘solidarity’ and a salute to all the strong and powerful women they may have known in life.
The first hour or so after I have woken up are precious to me …. really, really precious!
I prefer no one speaks to me, I prefer not to talk myself, and the only thing I do is cradle a cup of coffee in my hands, sit in my balcony and just stare away.
Me at a marathon??? An unlikely sight indeed. Most would think of the ‘fish out of water’ analogy. I am going to take it a step further and ask you to take a fish – your choice entirely which one – trout, mackerel, sardine, porpoise, etc. – and whisk the poor soul away to the top of a snow capped peak. Again, your choice where (I am generous that way!). Now, step back and take a look.
