Today was something special – why? Read on.......
I was fighting the after-effects of one long journey in the bus – it’s indeed a ‘learning’ experience to fight back waves and waves of drowsiness induced by people who sleep.....no make that snore around you.
So, there I was.....ambling towards my building when I saw something gray swish across my path. I stopped and stared for sometime – you see, I had to ascertain whether it was my mind playing tricks on me because people around me passed by without even batting an eye-lid.
But no, it was there, snaking under the under the bushes, sniffing here and there, scampering across the green grass, and taking refuge under yet another hedge, its gray tail swishing about gracefully.
What I did not understand was the reaction of others – silent, sleepy and totally non-interested in what’s happening around. Hmmm.......have we become so jaded that we fail to appreciate the beauty, sometimes hidden sometimes rampant, around us?
After all, it’s not every day that you come face to face with a mongoose!
