She had no protective footwear

The lady was sincerely and patiently cleaning the tracks of the platform 4 in chennai central railway station. what is unusual about it? The tracks are filled with litter consisting of used tea cups, left over food, food packaging, wrappers of biscuit packets, plastic bottles, rats and human excreta. Pity that she do not have any protective foot wear like gum boot or any other stuff for protecting her feet.

Why was Sindhu restless?

Sindhu was restless inside her habitat. She was moving here and there. Something was agitating her mind. Her friends seemed to be happy. Why was sindhu(tiger) unhappy in Trivandrum zoo?

In many ways zoos are prisons for animals for no fault of theirs.

Calm & peaceful location

If you think that you need a calm place to play a game of chess, you may have to rethink. Two men were playing chess on a by-lane near the kottayam railway station under the street light. They were unmindful of the surroundings and solely concentrating on the game.

Is anybody using it ?

They come in varied sizes and prices. Few appear fancy and would invite attention. Few could be held in pockets and some bulkier. With electronic age is somebody using the small notebooks that were storing addresses and phone numbers? Is anybody using it now?

Will it vanish?

Frequent commuters using the velachery mrts may have observed that the water bodies near the tracks is slowly vanishing. It is not due to evaporation. An illegal settlement has slowly expanded and is pouring debris, industrial and packing material, harming the water body.  Precious natural reserve is being swallowed.

It pains !

As the MRTS trains enters the station, i experience an eerie feeling.  The stations are sparsely crowded, untidy, unfinished and not poorly illuminated. Moreover the structure is mammoth and unused space add to its plight. Coaches are dull. Passengers anxiously pray that the next train should arrive as soon as possible. Recalling the experience itself is eerie.

Happy Birthday

Wishing you many more happy returns! You are now six years old and I want to celebrate your birthday. Neither you can cut cakes nor blow a candle. I cannot also  gift you something to it. You are simple but have been an invaluable messenger in receiving good,bad and every other message. For many,your appearance is old,dull,drab and outdated. Your current counterparts are modern, trendy and appear more beautiful. 

In the past few years, your heart was replaced twice and several minor cosmetic replacements were done. Two years back, you were almost fatally drenched and admitted to an ICU. The doctor had revived your life miraculously.
I know you are not able to speak much but i don’t have it as a complaint. It could be due to old age. Well i cherish holding  Nokia 1100

Drenched in rain

I got drenched along with other road users. Not by rain. The corporation lorry was sweeping the road and blowing dust all across.
