Squirrel & Me

                 Listen to my tale of woe currently running between a squirrel and me. It begins before this summer. One fine morning, I was startled to see our bathroom window sill and the floor straight below that was full of leaves, hay sticks etc., I watched and found that it's work of a squirrel. It was trying to build a nest. Next day also the same thing happened - the squirrel putting things in the sill and half of it falling down. So I kept a thin cardboard to safe guard it.Whenever a strong wind strikes, the card board falls off. I had to put it back.


The Nest


       
             It built the nest, egged and small ones ran here and there for few days. And all stopped one day. After two months again the process began and I did the same thing and it ended well. 
            The third time the building process started. One bad morning, the tragedy strikes when as usual the strong wind blows. The cardboard fell. I didn't notice on the first day. Our servant, who was unaware of the agreement going between me and the squirrel,  throw that card board out. The next two days I was busy I totally forget about the nest, the cardboard and the squirrel altogether.
           When I saw the fourth day, the nest was reduced to half. Next day I saw the squirrel shifting the nest part by part. I put another card board. It was not pacified with me, who was showing the white flag. It shifted the whole nest. My heart broke.
Ingratitude wins...
Ok..let it be...

And Our Indian Women


Word of Thanks I am so thankful for my agonized women friends who asked and helped me in writing this article. I believe this would certainly helps our women to balance in the social network to some extent.



Indian Women
Indian women, had a definite pattern of living and a very stringent culture of not being out with other men after they got married, whether they are educated or an earning member. For the past one decade, we had seen change in behavioral pattern of our college girls, influenced by the western culture. They love, like or lie down and go well with any other person on earth. The social sites trap these girls into this current, that they are not able to adjust with their partners after the nuptial knot. They compare their men with the other male friends in their network. Many marriages end well in the court. 

If these are all known facts, what is the necessity for writing this article?....Leaving young girls, we beckon the women in their 40s and 50s to defi…

Moms never quit..

Long Skirts



Little things do magic Lilies and chrysanthemums Fold mountains and Hay meadow Shearing wind whistles around lonely boat Dashing clean water murmurs along the shore But the old woman in her hood Is yet to sing the tranquilizing dream  That bloom with love and life
Whatever happens,  Moms never quit to say  Girls should wear long skirts   Then the children  Never fail to follow the Pied Piper
