One of my early morning chores and the one I enjoy the most is watering plants on my terrace.This is my time of interacting with each plants.It’s sheer bliss to see a new leaf unfolding,a bud opening it’s petals in a rhythmic pattern ,slowly and softly.I know the number of flowers to bloom on a particular day.such is my intimacy with them.The flowers are my daily dose of sparkle and laughter.They set my mood for the day.

The mornings my terrace welcomes me with it’s all green placid quietness I feel fresh and calm.There are days when i know there will be few bright colored flowers to cheer me up and day is sure to be full of fun.

That morning I knew that no flowers would be there.The money plant leaves were looking vibrant,the basils stood in quiet dignity .My emerald terrace looked invigorating .After watering the plants as I was about to leave the terrace something bright caught my eyes.I was surprised as I was not expecting any flower.I sat on my knee near the pot to examine the tiny flower peeping midst the slender lily leaves

.mingled with the lily leaves were few wild grass leaves and on a slender stalk was perched this tiny, bright yellow flower.No,I have not planted it.I have not even consciously watered it but it was there all the same adding dash of color to my terrace and brightening my world.I smiled a big thanks to it and walked away with heart full of gratitude.God has perhaps created these miniatures to enrich us with unexpected joys.

It was tuesday.Ya ,10th of this month.around 9a.m. in the morning this troupe of monkeys visited us.they often come in the group of fifteen to twenty.in proximity to our colony once there was dense kukrail forest.though the name and to some extent the forest still exists but it is no more dense.number of residential colonies have encroached the habitat of these animals.so these creatures are not left with any other option but to enter the colony to pacify their hunger.well ,that day also they came but this visit was made special by this naughty monkey kid.sunder clicked him …………enjoy….

sitting comfortably on the Amaltas tree in front of our balcony,he appears to be in a contemplative mood or the beauty of those delicate bunches has tickled his creative faculties…………….

from the tree he jumped down to the boundary wall.he certainly seems to enjoy the flowers a lot.

here comes out the model in him.posing for sunder ,looking directly towards lens……..cool he is.

these two are his companions-one is enjoying the shade of neighbour’s  bougainvillia  and the other…..usual monkey tricks on their gate.

This one is the leader of the group.Whenever the troupe of the monkeys  marched in the street ,the dogs become alert.The drama continues …..the dogs barking and trying to intimidate the monkeys while monkeys safe and away from dogs’ reach ,teasing them.

Look ,the naughty young kid has leapt further inside boundary and is sitting comfortably midst lily plants on the stand.sunder is focusing on him and he is very attentively watching all his moves.

All set to say good bye……..

We missed one of his pose when he came nearer and stood on two legs on the bicycle in the boundary showing all his courage,throwing one to one challenge.

This little chap filled our morning with fun and pleasure and these simple pleasures of life always make us feel good.
