Centenary Rose Garden of Ooty

               Travelling from Coimbatore to Ooty via Mettupalayam Road in the wee hours  is pleasurable. Very cool morning. Pleasant road trip. People going for walking and jogging, hurrying for work, waiting in the bus stand, milkman carrying milk packets, women going to field work in colorful sarees, school children in uniform waiting for their school bus and lazy man drinking tea in a tea shop. 

              Crossing Periayanaicken Palayam, Mettupalayam and Black Thunder. My visit to Black Thunder few years back lingers in my thought. I promised to visit again. Then going from foothills to Ooty through the narrow and winding roads is really cool. This time the Centenary Rose Park is in my priority list of visiting.    
                 This rose park is situated in Ooty near the Charring Cross junction. I went there in the second week of April. The park is getting ready for the May Season in Ooty. Its 10acres of land is filled with different varieties of roses.  All plants are trimmed and ready to have flowers in two weeks. We can see the full rose garden from a spot called  'nila maadam'.  The park is descending with steps of beauty. In the garden they are selling saplings, jams and pickles made from fruits and vegetables. Nice place to sit and relax.

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

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…
