"Why do all good things come to an end?"- that was my question when we left our native place day before yesterday.:) Those three days of vacation just zoomed by. Meeting people, spending lazy afternoons at grandpa's place, visiting the temple, a bit of trekking, lots of walking and spending quality time with nature definitely were very refreshful. It was completely a remote life without mobile phones, T.V, radio, newspapers and so on. In fact, when we stepped into Bangalore and when we heard the racket of the vehicles here, we felt like strangers. The calm, placid environment that we experienced in those three days seemed to evaporate as soon as we landed here.:)

Well, after all those attempts of mine to make you jealous, lemme get on to a serious note. One thing what we found was that most houses in our village are inhabited by only elderly couples. Most of the youngsters have immigrated to towns and cities in search of name, fame and money. Somehow the serene, quiet, rural life does not seem to appeal to them. They are in fact awed by the metropolitan glitter. I donno why this situation reminds me of the musk deer that goes in search of fragrance without realizing the fact that it secretes the most fragrant and valuable musk!!
