Life in a cage?

I drank water from the pot. I didn’t like it as it was warmer because of hot climate outside. Scorching heat made me low. Chirping of birds diverted my attention and I looked towards the sky where I saw three birds exactly like me flying freely. It was only me who was caged and couldn’t fly. The other birds were so happy and lucky and I so unhappy and unlucky!

Suddenly a shikra, a bird of prey came from nowhere and sat on my cage to catch me but couldn’t harm me because of the iron bars between us. It flew away and caught the little one while the other two birds could only scream.

Should I be happy or sad as I live in a cage?

Lap of neem tree!

A peepal sapling has grown in the lap of a large neem tree.

In your opinion, peepal should be transplanted in the field or it should be allowed to grow naturally in the lap of neem tree?

Plants in bottles

One of the corner of my house looks like this. These three bottles contain plants in water and something colourful to beautify them.

What are placed at the bottom of all these bottles to beautify them?

In December, 2006 when I picked out a card from tarot deck was ‘The Hanged Man’ the twelfth card of Major Arcana which shows a man hanging upside down from one foot. He was suspended from a tree. It means transformation, turning around and seeing all the things in new light. A total reversal in life was ahead!
In 2007,
  1. I left my job to learn taxation.
  2. Due to some unavoidable reasons I joined my family business.
  3. For the first time I became owner of a property.
  4. For the first time I fell in love.
  5. I enjoyed my first date.
  6. For the first time I attended a high party.
  7. I learnt share business which I always wanted to.
  8. I met my mentor, guide and best friend.
  9. I bought my first laptop.
Out of these three are lies. ;)

Which year will you consider as turning point of your life?

Wrong parking

On morning walk I saw a new white colored car decorated with vibrant plastic ribbons and a swastik (auspicious sign made by red paste on new belongings) was made on its bonnet. Wow! A brand new car!! Nice Car!!! But what it this white paper on the front glass on driver’s seat side???? A few more steps and now I could read it.

What do you think security guards should spare brand new cars or no relaxation for anyone?

Soothing whistle!

I was walking on the side path of a mall and heard soothing whistle. I was too absorbed in my thoughts and calculations that I didn’t bother who it could be. I walked a few more paces and this time whistle started and continued for a long time. Who could whistle breathlessly for such a long time? I turned my head towards the sound. Oh! It was a caged bird!

Knowing this, should I be disappointed or happy?

Organic Spinach

“Do not throw away the four removable plastic containers. Give it to me. You can throw away the outer cover that was used to hold them as it breaks in two pieces and can’t be utilised anymore as a dry fruit keeping tray.” I said and took the four little plastic containers, filled them with soil mixed with decomposed manure and put the spinach seeds in them. I watered them regularly and organic spinach grew ready to be cut.

To beat the inflation prices and to get the vegetables grown without fertilizers and insecticides do you think the only option left is to grow them in what ever available containers/ land or there is any other option also?
