Godrej Colony in Vikhroli, is one place in Mumbai,
Where you can still smell the earth, made freshly wet by the gentle
lashing of the rain drops;
Where the cuckoo has not forgotten its melodious call;
Where the sunrise still brings a vision of twittering birds flying in
And the sunset, an image of the fiery scarlet ball, teasingly hiding
behind the mountainous landscape in the distant horizon;
Where the flora and fauna are found intact... untouched by the cruel
excuse, which some call “urbanisation;”
Where you can still walk barefoot in the lush green grass and feel the
early morning dew;
With the rains only accentuating this ecstasy!
Perchance, it is my good fortune to have been blessed with such a life,
where my employer is the Hand of God. Yes, you can feel God’s presence in
every inch of this Paradise!
... And if anyone is so grief-stricken of the woeful condition of Mumbai,
bring him here & he’ll believe that...
“Heaven is a place on Earth!”
