Point is to return!

If god (that is, if one assumes his existence as most believe) were to offer u the most enticing and interesting job on a platter, then it shud be agri for sure. Yeah, no sailing, no hunting..it wud be agri..

Remember the 'bar closed'?? and DV's point return? Did I tell u of the planning of a pond there and that I was lucky to get involved with many other better souls at point return? (see here!)

Its fun to be associated with DV and this project of his. Last week my wify n myself with DV planted some saagavaram (Oh! Am supposed to get the name of it in English..shall do soon) all along the fence.

It was a good exercise and really great feeling..and from now on, during every visit, we shall check how much it has grown and shall exchange proud glances! Am excited to see it grow tall soon..

Then we also used the A frames (oh, remember reading about it in engg course or else where ages back? We got to use it!) to mark the contour lines..its real fun folks..waiting to see the pond cut out and to participate in more exciting activities there..

The point is to return! Gotcha?

    its not aloe vera (that is kathaazhai in tamil)..this is a cacti variety and grows without water, but looks more fleshy n colorful..will release the english name soon.

    Ananth,
    Great to know about what you are doing.
    Coincidently, I also came across the following article that talks about a elderly gentleman (Kamaleshwari Singh) from Bihar who took seven years and back-breaking work to dig a pond that would supply water to his village.

    Keep up the good work.

    Take Care,
    Venki
