Monkey Masti!

Hey I am Vanu. I am a monkey🐒. And all my life I have been spent around these homes and trees scavenging for food. My Nana has told me tales about a luscious thick forest🌳🌳 where he used to live and hide from top predators. Not any more! Here, I seem to be the topContinue reading “Monkey Masti!”

The cycle of life.

Old age is cruel. Very hard and cold. Winters become synonymous with chill- dead soul shattering silence of the night. Summer stands for tiring endless light of the day. There is no respite.

Hey Nisha

Hey Nisha hi Nisha! Where are you today? I see you daily on my way. Sometimes smiling, sometimes laughing, Sometimes sad, sometimes frowning. I see you smiling warmly to the scorching Sun.
