Lately, I asked my mum why we left going to the Cheshire homes which we used to visit when we were small and the blind schools to encourage the blind children while they struggled with their life? I asked more, as to why we don't anymore go to the old age homes and orphanages to serve?
My mum replied, " whatever we as parents wanted to inculcate in you and teach you, I think you have learnt it, it's time now, you have realized why we used to visit those places !"
I was a little confused, I asked a simple question, why we don't go anymore there? and she answered me in circles.
She then added, "We used to go to those places, because we wanted you to be a person who is tender and can thank God that you have got a chance to serve the humanity, isn't this philosophical?"
She continued,"We used to go together, but after a while, we thought that Now, it's time for you to think and decide, do you want to go or not? That you must continue to visit these places and feel heavenly satisfaction or you should go to places that are entertaining and not boring !"
My question made her think .. I am grown up now and want to continue with visits to these homes and organizations where old, weak, retarded and helpless people stay.
Because my question was why "we" have ceased to go there (together) as I miss my family when I am serving the humanity since long they have ceased to go with me.
I just asked why we don't go together? She took me as If I asked why we are not doing any work voluntarily?
I went to my university to get some documents, On the way of my faculty of Law, Jamia Millia Islamia I found so many old tree-pals asking me how was I doing.. I told them plain.. Ecstatic. They posed for me straightaway..when I flashed my 3.2 Mpx (only) Sony Ericsson W705 out of my pocket... here are the beauties :
|The branch of Gold|
|So the Yellowness stole the show|
|Making its own way in the air of freedom|
|Head strong aiming High|
|Hopelessness is a sin|
|Prosperity amidst dust|
|A home to many Birds|
|In unity we stand .. In division we are stronger as well..|
|My old Uncle "Mr. Jungle" This path is new..I never saw it ! Way to the Faculty|
|The golden light scattered everywhere.. the reflection of sun !|
I am becoming a Tree-lover to the core.. the stillness fascinates me.. Like everyone says.. still is dead... but for me.. a hidden life is beneath that stillness.. ultra dynamic and evolutionary.
