Apologies for being so irregular with my posts. May be my initial excitement of writing about my city evaporated too quickly and also I got swayed from my starting point of interest ‘Local Food & Flavors of Jaipur’ .
I felt jammed and stationary, no inspiration, no words.
But nothing stagnated except me. The Doodhwala (milkman) arrived everyday in his whitish cotton Dhoti-kurta right on time no matter how chilly the morning was; the modest street dogs never stopped running around in the street; the wandering cows never seemed unhappy; the Dhobi family (a young couple & 3 children) came everyday to open their wooden desk workstation, tirelessly steam-pressing cloths of the neighborhood and earning a livelihood.
Only I seemed to have all the big valid reasons in the world not to write.
Just then I read this Shloka from Bhagavad-Gita as it says:
“Perform your prescribed duty, for action is better than inaction. A man cannot even maintain his physical body without work.”
Even my lovely city kept getting older, bigger and stuffed with every passing moment. It got 286 years old this year. A home for almost 67 lakh people and may be the same number of birds & animals.
And I missed out writing about so many interesting things.
So with hopes and inspiration renewed I hope to come up with some interesting posts soon.
Till then. Bye.
