Share your world 2014, Week 24

What makes you feel the most secure?

My family

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

I never wear shoes:) slippers and sandals, so I am not very sure about this.  We buy our footwear from BATA, they are very comfortable.

How many languages do you you speak?

Three,  English, Kannada, my mother tongue and Hindi. We have many, many languages and most people speak not only their mother tongue and English. In North India most people know Hindi too.

What was the largest city you have been to?  What is the one thing you remember most?

I am not very sure about the largest. Each city has its own personality and something to only itself.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

We have a Book club, nine of us book lovers:), we meet once a month. Last Friday we had a great meeting. Next week, on Monday and Tuesday we will be with my father in law in our village. It will be nice.

Thanks Cee:)

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. I used to go to the Home for the Mentally challenged in our campus twice a week. I have been going there since 2011. The members are an important part of my life. Covid-19 has made it difficult for me to go there regularly. Hopefully I will be able to go there again. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made life so much more richer.
