Birdwatching :)

One of the best things about sitting in the library (apart from The Art of Looking Sideways) is that when you sit next to the window you get to stare at the lawn for as long as you want...

So, on one such afternoon....

Birds on the lawn; they are just like us; maybe us as kids, when our behaviour was unpretentious, directly reflective of what we were thinking.. Chasing after useless things... polythene, feather.... and when someone has it, they all fight for it. After a while, they give up and look for something else so the one who has it, now not getting any attention, loses interest in it.

So much like the way we are....

really nice and so true. :)
i guess the whole objective of chasing the feather/polythene is to enjoy the chase and not the ultimate act of possession.....

wow... that's a nice way of looking at it.. enjoying the chase... possession is i guess momentary.. its the chase that leaves a lasting impact..

so true........but remember one thing....."Anth Bhala To Sab Bhala"...so how great the chase may be....people will remember you for what you achieved finally...thatz the hard fact of life...

people will remember you... but what will u remember?

Aur Batao said...

One may remember the process...the pain to reach a certain goal....but for how long....finally you would like to remember things that have given you success....ya may be from others one can learn from the mistakes and not repeat it in future.....but every one likes to remember good things....

They really made the KMC well. I love looking out the big windows. Aah...! These days in the lab I have to rotate the blinds, or I'll go crazy. Fountain, few birds, no pidgeons. Hooray!
