COB #46: Look! No Hands

It was a steep uphill climb at Singhagad Fort, Pune, India, which is believed to be built two thousand years ago. Unsure of my trekking capabilities and reluctant to test the chivalry of the other members of the gang ;), I desisted from proceeding too high up. I sat down one quarter of the way to enjoy the view.

Here’s a man trudging up the steep slope carrying packaged water for the thirsty tourists.

Not an uncommon sight to see people carrying baggage on their heads so nothing to really write home about. Plus he’s holding his booty with a hand – pshaw that’s for wimps 😉

I looked around and sure enough


Look – no hands! Amazing isnt it? I am willing to bet she didn’t need hands to hold her baggage while going up either – what do you think?

The Magic of Life

Isn’t life the most magical of all things? Don’t you wonder how a very few basic atoms (carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus and sulfur) can create life in it’s myriad and varied forms?

Moreover, it never fails to amaze (and inspire) me when I witness life thriving in the most unexpected of places.

“Listen to the mustn’ts, child. Listen to the don’ts. Listen to the shouldn’ts, the impossibles, the won’ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me… Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.” ― Shel Silverstein
