The season of great Monsoon’s symphony is almost over…….the sun very gently pushing the cloud aside….. the sky has started gathering them into itself……once again, the blue dazzling sky smiling on the earth…..and the mother earth has taken a pause… a break…. as she finishes one big chores of this year……of feeding one an all including the life giving rivers, ponds, streams…. before gathering all of them into herself…….. Her leafy abundance about to recede but, defying all the quietness & stillness…….. the beautiful flowers of Sonki, Balsum, Cocks Comb, Kastha, Bichua and the most important, of Karvi…….. are exploding with energy, as if wanting to be watched in wonders in Kanheri trail….
कारवी को देख कर किलकारियाँ मारती मधुमक्खियों, फूलों पर झूमती, थिरकती तितलियों, नटखट सरसराते, छू कर निकल जाते हवा के झोंके……..
“Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth.” H. D. Thoreau
