Come away with me ...

As the bus paced on its way out of the city, the dusty roads gave way to cleaner ones. And the concrete jungle slowly transformed to eye-pleasing green vegetation.

The traffic was light with an occasional tourist car or a bus passing by. The area too was less populated with very few people visible on the road. With rare sights of houses and shops, the either sides of the road are covered with thick tall blankets of rubber estates and coconut plantations. The cool air smelt fresh and soothed my mind.

The Road Less-Travelled

Now I have come to the cross-roads in my life. I always knew what the right path was. Without exception, I knew, but I never took it. You know why? It was too damn hard. Now here's Charlie. He's come to the cross-roads. He has chosen a path. It's the right path. It's a path made of principle that leads to character. Let him continue on his journey.
-Scent of a Woman (1992)

Money Plant

It seems to me that we all look at nature too much, and live with her too little.
-Oscar Wilde
During my childhood days, the money plant always fascinated me with its brilliant shades of green. A friend of mine has the plant in his backyard planted in a long-necked bottle with water.

Once while coming back from school, I found it growing wild by the road side. I picked up a small one and brought it home carefully. And planted it just as my friend did. I was happy seeing it grow for the next few days. But alas it stopped growing after that. The nice shades of green slowly turned pale yellow.

I was jealous seeing my friends plant that grew lush and happily climbed the kitchen grills. And as to my plant, it died a slow death, the reason I don't know why.

Today we have a few money plants that grew wild and happy in a silent corner of our compound wall.
