Take me..

Have been dreaming of a holiday since last week.
Am tired of seeing purvas, shobhas and rohans standing brushing one another's shoulder, looking gray and dull, with hundreds of match-boxes style houses...

Take me,

Where the grass is still green & moist with dew...


Where the roads don't lead to junction with signals..

Where the end of the rainbow is visible

Where the spring is a celebration.

Where shady trees meet..

Where you spend time blowing bubbles..

Where you notice that red flower among the yellows..

Where you walk hand-in-hand with your best friend, and its not exercise!

Where flowers don't have garbage dumped on them...

Where houses are painted pretty-pretty...

Where roads lead to nowhere, yet make a great journey...

Be happy that you have such a wonderful husband...

Between, if you want to be:
1. Where the grass is still green & moist with dew... - Learn to wake up early before the dew evaporates.
2. Where the roads don't lead to junction with signals... - we will have to discuss this with the traffic department.
3. Where the end of the rainbow is visible - be happy with what you have, why do you want a pot of gold?
4. Where the spring is a celebration. - You have Holi, Basant Panchami, etc. and we celebrate them in India.
5. Where shady trees meet.. - Outer ring road...
6. Where you spend time blowing bubbles... - when you breath underwater
7. Where you notice that red flower among the yellows... - when you have time to look around
8. Where you walk hand-in-hand with your best friend, and its not exercise! - Trekking...
9. Where flowers don't have garbage dumped on them... - its not garbage, its organic fertilizer
10. Where houses are painted pretty-pretty... - Bangalore!!! violet, pink, yellow... you name it and you have it...
11. Where roads lead to nowhere, yet make a great journey... - dreams

Refreshing post :)

Gasper-nu vattaayi.

Rat, how can the images click themselves?

On second thought, we all are hypocrites :), cribbing about lost paradises, which in reality are reachable to all of us. We can all take a step back, step aside of this maddening race, pack our bags, go back to our own 'home's,

where

..the grass is still green & moist with dew.
...the roads don't lead to junction with signals.
...the end of the rainbow is visible
...the spring is a celebration.
...shady trees meet..
...you spend time blowing bubbles..

...you walk hand-in-hand with your best friend, and its not exercise!
...flowers don't have garbage dumped on them...
...houses are painted pretty-pretty...
