Another peace-filled image...

Here's the view of the Periyar (periyAr, meaning, big river)...the Dr.Salim Ali Bird Sactuary in Thattekkad is situated on the banks of the river.

I love this photograph for the feeling of calmness it gives me...

Yes, the Thattekkad bird photographs are getting uploaded and I'll do the post shortly..which reminds me, there were several flights from the same destination due at the airport, how did Snow White know which one the Seven Dwarves would be arriving on?

That's easy, the announcement said that the Delhi flight was expected shortly....

an old movie song about a baby's arrival

After ages, a conversation with kruthi motivated me to record this old movie song about the impending arrival of a baby....

Rough translation:

TMS:
(It) will be born like a flower, like a flower
(It) will smile (with purity) like milk, like milk

PS:

(It) will leap like a deer, like a deer
(It) will steal the heart like honey

TMS:

There's not a single soul that can fail to be happy at
A son (child) who smiles like a flower


PS:

A jasmine that plays on one's lap
Is the very limit of the bliss of baby-talk

(like a flower, like a flower)


TMS:

I saw a life that's dancing within
I see his form as that of myself

PS:

He'll come toddling, toddling
He'll give unquenchable bliss


Both:

Like a flower, like a flower...
