Golden Temple

Few months ago, I visited pilgrimage temple of Sikhism “Golden Temple”. It is also called “Darbar Sahib” or “Harmandir Sahib”. It is located in Amritsar, Punjab. Here are some photos of the holy land.

Matheran

Matheran is a hill station between Mumbai and Pune, district Karjat. As per Wikipedia, it is 90 km from Mumbai and 120 km from Pune. Matheran means “forest on the forehead” (of the mountains).

We get the chance to visit the place last weekend. It was a wonderful experience. As mentioned in Wiki “it is Asia’s only automobile free hill station” but there are options of horses and hand pulled rickshaw although we opted to walk. We also get the chance to enjoy the toy train journey. Here are some pictures of a place blessed with uncanny natural beauty.

Why I am leaving this city? She asked herself several times. There is no perfect answer.

Few years ago, everything was different, this place feels like a home. All of her friends were here. They all are gone now.

Is this the only reason?

No. I have to go because he is gone. This city remind of him and I can’t tolerate this anymore.

P.S. – This story is completely fictional any resemblance will be completely coincidence.

Father’s day

Mr. Sharma was bit depressed and angry. His son has not come to meet him from 10 days. Mrs. Sharma was getting habitual with the fact but Mr. Sharma was not able to swallow the bitter pill that his son is now living separately.

He was so eager to meet him that he bump on every sound of gate. Someone is at the door but he was not getting up to open it. He don’t want to be disappointed again but this time his son Tarun actually came.

Tarun – “Happy Father’s day Dad.”

Mr. Sharma – “I don’t want to talk to you. Where have you been?

Tarun – “Sorry Dad, I was busy with work. The Office schedule was hectic this week.”

Mr. Sharma – “Oh! Now office is more important than your parents.”

Tarun – “You were never there for parents – teacher, my plays, sports day because of your office commitment. I learned from you that work is more important than family.

Mr. Sharma has not expected this reply. He was flabbergasted just looking intently to his son.

Tarun hugged him and gave the father’s day gift.
