Who is he.....????



I looked around and saw somebody greeting me with a meek smile from a distance. I sit there gazing at the unknown stranger sitting still. A thin fog appeared in- between, dimming the view of the stranger. Everything became vague and found myself lost in the thick smog.
I was breathing hard among the thick smoke, and all I wanted was to get out of there. The feel of cold water under my feet helped me to find the way. The small spring made its way in-front of me. After an hour of struggle I was out of that area, yet my eyes were still fixed on that place. The smile and the fuzzy figure of the guy still remained vivid in my mind. Who could be he? The way he smiled captured my heart. A smile can melt someone’s heart, true! Be it a fake smile or a smile from the heart. I never had a thought what his smile was up to. All in all, I was mesmerized by that meek smile, which made me and my day smile.
My day went with that thought of the smile, possibly a guy in black gho. Many thoughts and questions came up buzzing in my head. The perplexed moment over took my emotion for a while. I went back to my vivid thought of that smile and carefully forwarded each moves, who could be he? His smile says he knows me. Does he really know me or is he a stranger. Could he be one of my close friends? Or somebody I know from my younger days? Everything was just a big question mark…

The incessant beeping of my cell phone woke me from an afternoon catnap. It was an episode of my afternoon dream which boggled my mind. Whoever the person is, his smile seriously captured my innocent heart. Despite being an episode of a dream, I immensely fell in love with the smile and the person. For now I am looking forward to the next episode of my life.

Agriculture as I see it…


Hungry and Naked, that’s where life would be on the earth without Agriculture. Somewhere, I have choose to become an Agriculturalist; serving and feeding the people which gives me immense satisfaction and happiness.

It was a choice I made some years ago without any thought on how my future will look ahead with this profession. Growing up in a country side, both my parents were farmer, thus Agriculture and farming wasn’t new to me and nor I am fresh to this profession.

It was then I realized how beautiful it was to be born as a country girl. Back then farming and agriculture were one profession ignored by many youth. It isn’t a simple occupation any one can opt for. Being an agriculturalist is being a farmer which requires a true dedication, immense sacrifices, and patience. I have chosen it without any reflection and thought on how I could carry out my profession. Today as I chew back and look over myself, I feel contended with what I have decided years ago.

The happiness and satisfaction you get seeing your work, the product you enjoy from your hard work, the timely natural beauty each crop gives you with their flowers and fruits are just worth watching. Its here I find true happiness and peace. Despite having to work out both in rain and sun, the pleasure you derive from agriculture gives you a satisfaction. Working back with the soil is always fun and worth it. In all these years, I have learnt to become more patience and it is truly the best part of me becoming an agriculturalist. Now as I walk through this profession, I am finally living my dream of being a fine farmer one day. Slowly, I am falling in love with my work and I hope to take it far.
