Hues

Do you paint? Even if you don’t, you would have dabbled in colours at school. I find it fascinating that there are only 3 basic colours, red, blue and yellow.

Rose bud

    Her sister is beside her,  with supreme confidence,  All fresh and bright,  Full of fragrance.   She looks out for the first time Delicate and fragile,  Wrapped in her warm blanket,  small and dainty.   She is afraid to look up,  But the Sun calls out, “Look up, little one” “I have come…

When we were kids, we used to play such simple games. Every evening from 4.30 to 7 pm used to be our playtime. There used to be a small garden in our house where we played. I remember some games. They may be called by different names now, but most are lost to the kids…

The old mango tree

The old mango tree looked at the goings on very sadly. He was a very old. His girth spanned 2-3 feet. His roots had penetrated deep into the earth. His branches gave shade to a large area. He was on this ground for a lot longer time than these people who were milling around him….
