To the Fort, 8 by 10 inches, oil
Last week, it was time for our annual visit to Tirupathi( The richest temple and the most visited in the world!) and on the way, one can not miss the Chandragiri Fort if traveling from Bangalore. Built in 11th century, I have visited it many times. But this time, I chose to admire it from a distance.Taking an excuse to make a quick purchase of tender coconuts, we stood for a while and enjoyed the view.To be honest, more than the view, my intention was to help the coconut guy make a quick buck.The hope on his face lights up with each passing vehicle and I never once feel like not stopping! He also had garden fresh carrots and beans that I bought bagfuls to be distributed to the lady sweeping staff who keep our streets clean. As a coincidence my husband sent me this quote today that I felt like sharing with this post."I learned to give not because I have much, but because I know exactly how it feels to have nothing"
