Sunday Trees from flood affected city

I took these images in mid July after heavy rains. Now the situation has worsened and millions of people are affected due to monsoon rains.

It breaks my heart seeing flood- affected people. Please pray for these people.

For Becca’s Sunday Trees

Getting back after a break is difficult!

Four weeks of vacation or change in location is over. We needed to be away and work on  necessary matters in the other part of the world. I was not on wordpress due to limited internet access. Slowly but steadily will visit your blogs and answer the comments on my posts. Thanks for supporting me.

Here are some images from my stay in India.

It is preoccupation with possessions, more than anything else, that prevents us from living freely and nobly ~ Bertrand Russell

Random reading and fun!

The likes and dislikes of one are part of their personality and somewhere deep down lies the reasons for such choices either good or bad. The outer appearance of a person might be totally different than the person.

Think about a situation where two neighbours staying together for decades hating each other. If a murder was free who knows they might have tried hard. Their lives flow independent of each other but at a right moment the curves of their lives not only crossed each other but they got tangled.

For a certain reason they stick together and tried to help each other despite their differences but yes at the end they donot become friends. Still life goes on.

A couple of weeks ago I had to pick a book with not much time in hand. I chose a book by Yemande Omotoso, “The woman next door“.  At the end I felt like it was not a bad bet after all.

Then soon after it, I started with Roberta Gately’s “Lipstick in Afganistan“. Roberta has served as a nurse and humanitarian aid worker in the third world war zones including Afganistan. We donot see the real suffering of the people but still was a good read.  A new angle.

In the mean time Brenda of  “a mediative journey”, in her post “a fatherless child” introduced me to Frances Hodgson Burnett and her book, “A little princess” . Though it is a children book,  I enjoyed it thinking if only all the stories have happy endings the millions of children suffering around the world would have had some hope. A hope for better tomorrow.

Do not read, as children do, to amuse yourself, or like the ambitious, for the purpose of instruction. No, read in order to live ~ Gustave Flaubert
