A date with Nature..

After many weeks of spending in the office, sitting on a chair and attending meetings, writing proposals and strategizing plans for various projects, etc., I got a chance to go out and have a date with nature. This was my trip to Matru Udyan, a picturesque, piece of land near the Oussudu Lake, where the various birds, trees, shrubs, climbers,  flowering plants make you so fresh, energetic and think differently and also reminding you, what all you have been missing all these days.

This land belongs to Sri Aurobindo Ashram and is a wonderful place for people of all ages to study, understand and internalize the role of the various components of nature and its services to not only human beings but all life-forms as well as to land, water, air also.

Just a few images from my short visit from there, as no words can express what I experienced there better.

From the flowers to the birds, pond, and lotus, the little creepers and shrubs, everything had a meaning and role to its surroundings. Sometimes, I get a strong feeling, the only species which does not gell with nature are us, the human beings, may we are the “weeds” that nature might not want at all- if it had a choice!!!
