Swing and the Java Plum

There are days when success follows us and times when it leaves us without a prior notice. Life is a race for victory, and sometimes life runs from the winners.

On The Move

This morning was fresh and warm, I enjoyed the after dawn golf in full swing. The PAF course is well manicured; it is a testimony to the zeal of the management’s neatness. Golfers don’t lose balls here unless they drop it in water or hit out of bound over the wall. On the other sideContinue reading “On The Move”
