Street Childrten in Narayanghat – Khatay!

This is what I saw on the streets of Narayanghat last week, when the Maoists had called for a national strike saying they do not want elections to happen.

While they were scared election might bring stability to the country, economy and society, there were a few stray kinds on the streets with no hope for a better future, living worse than animals. At least, animals live a healthy life – so long as they live!

Innocence…

Innocence

Of all the virtues one’s eyes radiate, Innocence is the sweetest and yet the most powerful one…

This girl had no idea that I was taking her picture. She didn’t know what a camera was.

This picture was take several years ago on my trip to one of the remote parts of the country where even some adults were afraid to face us ‘strangers’ intruding into their village. Was so interesting to experience that!

Love is like a Butterfly

Love is like a Butterfly

My dad owned this old country song album that contained this song. Interesting when I recalled it right now, I could read the first paragraph without even looking at the lyrics… so I googled it, and there it was… the whole lyrics…

Funny I do not have the tape (like I had something to play  a tape with, Duh!) or the song…

Looking for a torrent.


Lyrics to Love Is Like A Butterfly : (Dolly Parton)

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thingI feel it when you’re with me
It happens when you kiss me
That rare and gentle feeling that I feel inside
Your touch is soft and gentle
Your kiss is warm and tender
Whenever I am with you I think of butterflies

Love is like a butterfly
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

Your laughter brings me sunshine
Everyday is spring time
And I am only happy when you are by my side
How precious is this love we share
How very precious, sweet and rare
Together we belong like daffodils and butterflies

Love is like a butterfly
As soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings
Love makes your heart feel strange inside
It flutters like soft wings in flight
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing

Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing
