The Wise Old Man

Spring is approaching fast and we have decided to take off half an hour earlier during a brief break, at the midway hut on a bright morning. It was very pleasant and we had abandoned the layers of winter clothing for a normal golf shirt. We were discussing how winter has left us for theContinue reading “The Wise Old Man”

The Fog

February is a month that abandons the cold and welcomes the warmth, festivities and freshness into the Punjab air. Spring is a glowing season but amber dominates February. Yellow is a celebration color of this time of the year. Marigold, chrysanthemum, gutta-percha, the wild sodom apple, bindweed and the king of flowers, rose of allContinue reading “The Fog”

The Floating Bubble

Inspired by Soni Cool. A bubble may be a delicate little object but it symbolizes a mighty element: the existence. Like a bubble, life exists for a brief period. They gloat, bloat and float only to disappear in air to feed the blankness of nothingness: the nonexistence.   When one sets their eyes on a bubble,Continue reading “The Floating Bubble”

They had no idea that they were sowing the seed of the world’sContinue reading “A Great Detour”

Though the weather is not a dependable thing, the fact that it hinders my game is disappointing. The last few daysContinue reading “No Golf, Snow Golf”

Roaming with the Stars

“When a man makes up a story for his child, he becomes a father and a child together, listening.” Rumi  One of the greatest pleasures of early marriage is early kids, they are grown up before you get old. On this sunny winter morning, I am grateful to have a round of golf with myContinue reading “Roaming with the Stars”

Good Morning My New Year

Drops of dew, the breeze of the dawn, rays of the sun, budding flowers, ticking seconds, chirping sparrows, dancing leaves, and my sleepy eyes welcome the first rise of 2021. The whole city was either glued to the television or out there to celebrate the festivities of a happy new year. I went to bedContinue reading “Good Morning My New Year”
