Collaborate with inevitable


It was touching. Two Pakistani children in the neighbourhood knocked on the door, “We are moving off to Abu Dhabi,” they said with a twinkle in their eyes. So sweet. My daughter used to be the ring leader among kids and they had a strong, affectionate network.
“Take care and remember me,” I told the baby boy thrusting a chocolate in his hands.
“Insha Allah,” the boy replied.
During tea session, I told my colleague it’s surprising that love transcends all barriers and brings heaven on earth. Yet, humans refuse to accept the reality.
I also told him a wonderful line I read on the Net.
An old man was always happy. When asked how, he replied: “I have learnt to collaborate with the inevitable.”
Just to add a joke by my colleague:
What's happiness? she asked.
"Dunno, got married early," he replied.
BTW, I clicked a photo of beautiful flowers at my office corridor with NokiaN70 cellphone gifted to me by my great grandpa’s great grandpa. Famous blogger Mridula, hope you are not listening.

  9. On the contrary Ramesh, I liked the picture a lot! Flowers are a good subject they do not create too much fuss, unlike birds!

    Once again lovely picture. I knew you just needed more encouragement N70 is not that bad a phone.

  19. Isn't it interesting to note that we may love our neighbors while living in India. But, we are more forgiving when we start living abroad!

  21. Wow........... Indian lehenga choli is available in different designs and fabrics. I was looking online for lehenga choli and came across the site www.kaneesha.com and I was astonished to see their collection and ended up purchasing one exclusive designed choli skirt. I will highly recommend this site.
