I remember watching the green slopes covered in low-hanging rain clouds during the monsoon from my window. The memories of excitedly counting the number of small waterfalls that would trickle down the slopes are still

    Charity begins at home, sure it does!

Perhaps, it's one of the toughest things to do--bringing up your children just the way they should grow up, into good human beings.

Also, I edited a literary journal, wrote columns for a professional magazine and did serious photography. I rowed early morning and
