Manikutty was asked to write a Favourite poem during this half-term holidays...It was interesting to note that she selected one of my all time favourites from school days. ie "Stopping by woods on a snowy evening". I asked her why did she liked it...she said it is because it describes the forests and snow. I tried to explain the deeper meaning of it and may be she understood a bit of the holistic perspective!
I felt that I should upload this just because of the sheer depth of meaning of life explained in such a simple style by a great poet of the twentieth century. I remember my English teacher in school reciting this poem and saying this was the favourite of Pandit Nehru's too.
'The woods are lovely, dark and deep
But I have promises to keep
And Miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I sleep'
3 simple sentences conveying the truth of nature, of our selves......
