MISSION ACCOMPLISHED :
Today is the 8th day of our stay at London.( 20th Oct 2011, Thursday )
1. The day started with a Jogging spree. Completed a round of Jogging and walking .From sedley court to forest Hill through Dulwich Library and Heathedge .I reached our home in exactly 30 min.
2. Had noted in this blog a few days back that within a week’s time, I shall be able to independently move in the London tube on my my own. Today I am quite excited to announce that I have actually achieved this feat. Sushama and me travelled extensively in the London tube today.
From Forest Hill to Wembley Park and BACK.Let me not unnecessary load with the train logistics here.Today’s plan was to visit the Swami Narayan temple at Wembley park and we achieved what was planned.
After that we had a shopping in the Indian market of Wembly Central. Also had Pani puri there.
A POEM BY MY SON :
My son mailed me his recent creation .I am quite moved by this expression of his innermost sentiments.
With utmost appreciation I reproduce the creation of my son ( SAURABH KULKARNI ) here :
In Your Shoes
There are moments of pain, and moments of glory
Creating and carving, and conceiving your own story
Vision you found - laden with clues
Inching every step to be in your shoes
The history was replete with the pains you faced
While others wondered, in awe they gazed
There were souls - in the pink yet in the blues
I implore ye Lord, tell - what it meant to be in your shoes
The shoes were dusty and at times they shone
In times of hardship, when others were stolid and drone
Yours shoes were dusty, yet made news
Others gasped, how you stayed in your shoes
Unruffled you were, when others argued and cursed
In your self you believed, never in your might you blushed
While others lost faith in their shoes,
How you transformed lives and led - in your shoes
Beneath your shoes, there lay a soul,
Like none other, you were certain with a role,
To reinstate faith and to let loose,
To create your destiny and to be in your own shoes
