Tarkeshwar Mahadev Temple

Tarkeshwar Mahadev Temple is located approx 30 KM from Lansdowne (Uttrakhand), it has height of 1800 meters. The temple is surrounded by thick pine and cider trees.

It was a last minute decision, but the location of temple made us proud of our decision, luckly we have got a room in Ashram to stay in night. We were served food cooked on woods, stayed in a hut and awake in the morning with birds` tweets, chanting of slokas and fresh forest air. It was divine…

Half Sweater

Winter is here, feeling cold in air these day, temperature is dropping a degree Celsius a day from past one week, snowfall is reported in Himalayas. Entire northern India will be shivering from cold soon. Its time to take out warm clothing from closets, keep them into Sun to get rid of smell and moister.

Sleeveless sweaters are generally called “Half Sweaters” in most of part of India, hand woven, mostly wear by middle aged men are visible a lot these days, younger strong enough to tolerate this cold are still in shirts.

I also have one, not sure where, which was hand woven by mom, the last one by her.

I recall my childhood when mom and other women of neighborhood begin weaving sweaters few months before start of winters, buying wool, sticks of different numbers starts much before. A practice of each of family is loosing its battle with market full of ready-made, cheap and better in finish products, not sure they will create same warmth as hand made once….

Noticed this gentleman while waiting for Air show to begin… and started a process of thinking.

It was humid and he was carrying one kid on his shoulders, waiving hand to his disoriented wife and another kid, looking for place from where they can watch the show comfortably, more than the show, he would have been worried about comfort of family. Job related stress must be there somewhere in back of his mind.

Expectations of parents, complains from wife, stress of job, responsibilities of kids, bills, groceries and the list goes on… each father carries so many responsibilities but he cannot relax… he must not relax… ignoring his health and busy building future of kids…
