The Essence

“Your own essence is your wealth.” Rumi.  If you look closely, you can see the intricacy of the world. In the great game of nature, everything has a purpose and we certainly have one of our own. Where the snow carries a cloud inside, and the sun burns in its own flame. The sea longsContinue reading “The Essence”

A Great Detour

“We carry inside us the wonders we seek outside us.” Rumi As I fly across the Atlantic to reach a corner of the earth near Cape Cod, I think about the forefathers who migrated from Europe and made this point their home. They had no idea that they were sowing the seed of the world’sContinue reading “A Great Detour”

No Golf, Snow Golf

The air this morning is sleety, ground is wet and visibility is low. Such mischievous conditions continue for the last three days. Then comes a sunny day but it is too windy to golf. 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”

Keeping It Cool

“Don’t think the garden loses its ecstasy in winter. It’s quiet, but the roots are down there riotous.” Rumi The weather app is predicting temperatures below or close to 0°c all day. The sun on the other hand shines in all its prowess. The weather on the East coast of America is deceptive and naughty.Continue reading “Keeping It Cool”

Forever Young

“From the moment of your birth. A ladder was placed before you. To help you escape.” Rumi  Isn’t it amazing how a tiny, fragile, lifeless object like a seed grows into a large tree, a smiling flower and food bearing plant? How a small roe develops into mighty whales. How microscopic sperm transforms into aContinue reading “Forever Young”

Surgical Shots

It is every golfer’s dream to play scratch or under. Most never get to that. There are those that come close but few touch the brinks of that desire. Golf is a deceptive sport. It seems like a piece of cake from the outside but playing is not like eating a pastry. It rattles likeContinue reading “Surgical Shots”

The Beauty Contest

“The beauty is a heart inflamed and a soul enchanted.” Khalil Gibran  In the name of the beauty present at the Cafe’ 19, he hit a great shot that crossed the long water hazard and landed at a putter’s grip away from the pin. The caddie shouts “you nailed it sir.” His heart wants toContinue reading “The Beauty Contest”

Mystic Mist

The morning is like a vision impaired and a drunken mind.  It is hazy and full of delusions. The blanket of dense murk does not sit well with the time on my wrist watch—7am. The weather app itself seems a bit off this morning. Like most days, I am on my way to the golfContinue reading “Mystic Mist”
