I am no student of history nor was I particularly fond of the subject while in School , therefore have no qualms of displaying my ignorance about the SILK Route lovers of history refer to , but can confidently talk about the A route, C route, L route and M route , all routes followed in my house. The topography of their dwelling and the route taken has become so familiar without the above taking recourse to any of the modern devices /gadgets that I begin to envy these little creations of God, rather creatures created by God.
My day begins with ants , big and small giving me ‘darshan’ in the kitchen happily carting away tiny bits of ‘eatables’ , and rushing away in a single file when they see me making me wonder how they arrived there overnight!
Next are the cockroaches making their way from the kitchen into the sitting room, in time to watch the breakfast show on the television along with me.
Then I only heard of the expression ‘cat on the wall’ but not Lizards on the wall which I can apply to all the ceilings in my humble dwelling , ceilings are also walls, aren’t they? But these creatures though appear late in the evening have a neck and neck competition with their neighbours who are around 24/7 , attacking me without any need for any kind of ammunition!
Am I in great company? I wonder!
