In addition , the Kids in the back seat experienced a beautiful Life Lesson....

Just imagine those kids , being subjected to the alternate scenarios

* Scenario 1 - Both the parents howling, honking, knashing teeth, mouthing expletives at all ....

** Scenario 2 - One of the parent acting as in scenario 1 and the other trying to prove the partner wrong!!!

*** Scenario 3 - Both the parents meekly accepting the cut off as one of the perils of driving on the roads with no constructive response to offer to the kids.

The River Cannot Go Back, by Kahlil Gibran

The river , when it starts its journey from the mountains is destined to meet and be one with the Ocean.. It's only when the realization dawns on the river, that it first trembles , falters , unsure , sure and then accepts the ultimate merging...
what more can this make us realise , if not the oneness with the Divine....

The Ocean would be all encompassing , all willing to embrace , all able to take in the river , Curiously the Ocean too understands that it's own existence is probably linked to the flowing of the rivers into it.

Thanks for a wonderful piece of prose almost feeling like a poem ..
The journey is the reward - this is what probably , as per my understanding encompasses the essence of my reflection.

For last so many weeks , probably hundereds of them , I have been telling myself , we are living in the best times of mankind , in the best place befitting a mankind ...
Thankfully , today too , I continue to say this to myself and the world outside ...

Thanks to the Service space ...
