I went to a local Archies the other day to purchase a ‘thank you’ card. I was immediately greeted by over-sized teddy bears and balloon hearts, typical V-day leftovers. I noticed that the store had cards for only two types of people: lovers and students!
National exams are right around the corner here in India and I think its wonderful that cards like these exist. Too often students are academically pressurized to extreme degrees. Here, we have a healthy amount of encouragement to study and do well on exams.
Well done, India!
Inspired by William Ernest Henley, this is The Gait.
"It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll.
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul."
After I found out I had muscular dystrophy, I've been two lives: one that exists in India where I wear kurtas and speak Hindi more than English, and the other, an American girl who says 'thank you' and 'please' more than anyone likes.
I'm learning and living for the moments when my curiosity gets the best of me.
Follow me on this not-so-straight path of life. Thanks for stopping by!
