My grandfather was a fireman. He fought fire. He saved lives & probably saw hundreds of deaths in his lifetime. He was also a religious man who worshipped Agni.
I read a gifted book after the one who gifted it left my life. It helped me understand what went wrong. We were lost in translation.
Have you ever had an office spouse? I did back when Indians were shy about gender, relationship labels and women in the workplace.
A gratitude note to someone from my past: The strongest of us may need someone to remind us that we also need beauty, love & harmony to make survival a life.
