the dried stream was once full of life flora and fauna all around the dry leaf was once green not flying here and there, with a provocative gush of wind the wrinkles were once firm, reinforcing the ego of immortality the futility of their resistance, to change! irreversibility of physical change thank God mental change is reversible a mind conditioned, to sway of likes and dislikes, enslaved to addictions, of anger jealousy greed, proliferating a set of actions, and the boomerang chequered, joy or sorrow happiness or unhappiness, for all to see, a swirling pattern, of living the life, based on the circumvention, of song of likes and dislikes, miles away from equanimity or liberation! staying firm, in abidance of one's duty and devotion, Paves the way for repose, a respite in mind, a state of mind, of nothing much or nothing less is it steadfastness, in duty,devotion, or right attitude,vision? a change from within! Yes a big Yes!
