MARCH marks the way to chirping of coel, the typical quiet woods and thirsty souls. On the other side we have summer blossom on its way and then we have color splash in the sky.
Do we hunt for shadows of a tree? Yes, we do! Gulmohar! THE tree which brings joy and Childhood memories. Pangara! Indian coral tree paints the woods red! Onset of summer makes nature look so amazing, as if it is getting ready for the monsoon. Spring brings joy for welcoming summer.
Schools prepare for their last exam of the year, as kids wonder where to spend their summer vacations. Clouds move fast in the sky, the blue white color makes the sun shine hard. It’s the season for limbu pani, pepsi colas and street side barf ka gola!
Most of the birds, get busy in building their nests, it’s that time when they search for their soulmate. Busiest time for birds…
As I write this, I can hear coppersmith barbet, with its hollow puc puc puc , periodical! Have you seen this bird enter its nest? Very cautious.. very smart !
We can make sure we help thirsty creatures, like this
Shed off that pride of being an Indian, Russian, a Punekar, or a proud to be Mumbaikar! We react very slowly as humans, we react as a person. Certainly and obviously so. I stepped in Auroville boundary, and the space changed me. I was more quiet, more receptive, thoughtful. The best part was, I was alone. So I discussed the charm of the place, love for details, the peace, the green patches with myself. As I walked towards MatriMandir, me and mind – had a wonderful conversation.
Was eager to see the globelike structure – Maatrimandir.
I wont talk about how Matrimandir was built, what is the philosophy behind it etc etc. The place i is sufficiently intoxicating. Without keeping a tab on time, i spent hrs sitting admiring the architecture, clicking pictures and doing nothing. Silence, is what I loved.
Would want to go back to Auroville, stay there, interact with people from various countries, share ideas and be a part of a universal city in the making in south-India.
OH NO! I never want to learn tables again! Never ever, ever, ever remembered 13, 17, 19, 23, 26, 29 (even 18, 28, 24 were challenging). I am sure you must be saying the same thing as you read!
This is a smart school , in Atkarwadi (Sinhgad paytha – base). Look at how they have written all difficult tables! Hope the students ignore these bars to learn, and use them to play instead! (which they are doing :))
Say YAY if you never answer 29×6 in 2 secs, and what you answer after calculations is WRONG!
