Serene symbiosis

AS my land lies torn in strife
From Kashmir down to South
Pockets serene still remain
Like Olavipe the village mine
Where the gentle west wind hums
As it blows in from the lake
Over fields and swaying palms
The soul songs of the waves

The photo (copyright reserved) is of the west side of Thekkanattu Parayil, Olavipe, where several dozens of different species of plants and trees thrive in perfect harmony. If only we Indians could do that!

Yes Raji, it is such a peaceful scene. I love sitting on the cool stones at the far end of the house and watch it.
If you can spare the time, please go through my post on cool stones at

It is something almost from another era.
