  1. Saint Benedict Hotel
  2. a bit coarse for me
  3. armchair anarchist

The armchair anarchist  was just that . He did not like stir out of the comfort of his armchair. He wanted to change the world from the depths of its comfort. He believed going out on to the roads to fight for a cause was a bit too coarse for him. He was the organiser, the brain behind all the unrest but he was never caught. All the work was done by his men. He had told them to gather in the courtyard of Saint Benedict Hotel. His target was a very important person who would be staying at the hotel.

But all his plans came to nothing. Lockdown was suddenly imposed and people were not allowed to move about without a valid reason. The Coronavirus foiled his plans. He would have to wait. And he would, he had patience and did not like to fail.

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. Twice a week I used to go to a home for the mentally challenged . But I have not gone there since March 2020. I will start going there again but I do not know when. 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.
