Odyssey to india

the Hissings of mumbai the bright colours of the city chimes this motherland of mine has many stories and tales that shines the buzzing streets of surat buried with past secrets people commemorate despite of their different lives all residing side by side mango bazaar in valsad designer clothes and bag shops an orphan child close by hiding his smile i say "a hundred rupee for you young man" he modestly decorates his face with a fragile smile an eerie presence in taluka-tala a place of my ancient ancestors village-folk congregates as the daylight slowly become darkness a spirited singing begger illuminates the night with precious richness "A family trip to india inspired me to write a poem about the cultural,vibrant and cosmopolitan some cities of india. A beautiful country with wonderful people"

I would love to go to India to see the beautiful history. Intriguing the way the wives cook food and have it delivered to their husbands. I saw a man carrying the food pots on a stick and going to each business delivering it. Thanks for sharing.
