Musings..

Sunday morning musings. When the heartless Sun has sullied all your adult spirit and the humid stiff air has suffocated your adult desires. Yet, children remain exuberant and boisterous.

Happy Janmashtami

Hathi🐘 ghoda🐴 palki Jai Kanhaiya Lal ki!! My earliest memories of Janmashtami are standing barefoot in enormous queue of devotees to pull the Jhoola ( swing) of the bal natkhat Kanha.
