  18. Beautiful Vidya!

    I wouldn’t be the happy person I am today if it weren’t for all the challenges I faced. Thanks for spreading the message!

  19. I see that i am perhaps the only Indian friend of yours commenting here :) But loved this one. Anything positive about life and its challenges grabs my eyeballs in an instant. The image reminds me of the young boys who jump from a cliff into the waters of Narmada in Jabalpur for a fee from tourists. they sure know how to monetise a game :D

    • Zephyr, you’ve no idea how much I appreciate your visits. My country folk rarely come over and comment. The gratifying part is I know for a fact that all my friends read what I write and prefer to either pop up on IM chat or phone to talk, rather than come here and comment. :-)

      I’ve seen young boys enjoying themselves in the south. Monetizing it – well, we must remember that we have the best “businessmen” in the business :D. I could never bring myself to pay a child to jump off a cliff for fun, but different strokes for different folks!
