I am back at the green bench after a weeks journey through the snow hills.
Now on the green bench I write this parchi , as they do in the commerce lingo of India’s kidney West. The parchi is a tiny scrap of paper on which key figures are written in a summary form for incorporation in the Cash book before they are finalised .
In India’s kidney West, if someone is dead , he is off . By extension if someone is new and born, he is on.
Flowers in the Goddess home are beautiful . Flowers are on duty as they breath fragrance into our nights . They are off duty if they lay beside someone who is off. On duty, off duty.
If the flowers land on the garbage pile, after duty , they are considered off duty.
