One fine day, last rainy season, I witnessed a rainbow. Who on Earth may not like to watch it up in the sky? Subtle shades of it make us take their notice with awe. The shades that are not present also mark their existence by conspicuously being absent. It appears only when there is a little bit of Sun shine, a dash of drizzle and some dark clouds with silver lining. Isn’t ‘Life’ a fine representation of this natural phenomenon? I wondered.
In the Waning months of winter, the markets are flooded with grapes. While picking up grapes one fine afternoon, a thought occured to my mind. Is life the bunch of grapes? Some sweet, some sour, some seedless, others with seeds, some big and some small. One thing is sure, all are juicy! Life then is nothing but a bunch of grapes, I thought!
Is life magnificent and colourful like the rainbow or is it sweet and sour like bunch of grapes? To my surprise, I stumbled upon a family that cleared my doubt… Life is a colourful and one can relish its sweet and sour taste while living it to the fullest! Bingo, I got my A to Z theme!
Everyday all throughout the April, we will set out to discover ‘Sun Kissed & Minty Fresh… Life!’ of this family from neighbourhood. It’s a simple square family that you may find next door. At the helm of affairs is Mr Balanced and Mrs Chitterchatter. They share the roof with their teenage son, the Giant Little Kid and a pre-teens daughter, the Innocent Baby.
Let me warn you, they are not the perfect people on Earth. Each one of them has unique nutty core. But as a whole they make a delicious and fresh fudge! I could sense some “Deja Vu” expressions while you are reading it…
With each alphabet from A to Z, you and I will peep into the 26 episodes of life. Are you ready?
