‘Tickle her with a hoe, she laughs with a harvest’ – words of Douglas William Jerrold on mother Earth, read decades ago in Reader’s Digest’s ‘Quotable Quotes’ came to my mind as we walked past beds of flowers at the Dallas Arboretum.
My amateurish effort with a phone-camera. It was one of those moments when I felt – professionals may not be with me on this and I’m not competent to contest – no camera does full justice to the ephemeral beauty the eyes see.

Santa went to a dentist for tooth extraction and first inquired about cost.
Dentist said it’s Rs 1,200 per extraction. Santa thought it was too much and asked about cheaper methods.
The dentist understood Santa’s concern: ‘Yes, it can be done without anesthesia and will cost only Rs. 300, but I must warn you it would be very very painful.’
Santa was ready:’Okay, Doctor, I can take it, do it without anesthesia.’
The dentist removed the tooth without anesthesia and during the entire procedure the Santa sat quietly,completely unruffled, even smiling a little.
The dentist was not only surprised but was quite impressed and said: ‘I have never seen such a brave patient like you. I don’t even want my fees, here, instead take this Rs. 500 as a reward, you’ve taught me such a powerful lesson today about mastering one’s pain and feelings thru mind control!!!’
In the evening he met his fellow dentists and told everyone about his amazing patient. Out of all doctors, one jumped up: ‘Did he wear garish yellow t-shirt?’
‘Yes, he did, it kind of strikes you right away,’ the dentist confirmed.
‘That rascal came to me… I gave him anesthesia and asked him to wait outside for half an hour. When I called him in again he was gone…just like that.’

10 years back when I went to the temple, there was a big notice saying “Mobile Phones Prohibited “.
5 years back it was changed to : “Keep your mobile switched off”.
Last year it read : “Keep your mobile in Silent mode”.
Yesterday when I went, it said : “Selfie with the Lord, Rs. 500”.
