BLESSING SQUARE : 5, 6 ,..........

Dear Lovely people,
How are you doing ,most you must be holidaying around .
somehow summers are synonym with fun filled outings , refreshing breaks from the usual busy life.
I have quite a busy-in -n -out  schedule now a days.
Have I mentioned before ............
I am going for a long awaited holidays , a moderately satisfactory number of days ...hmmmmm ....12-15 days .That's the maximum I am able to manage in past 8 months .
I am going to my parents place ,which is situated among the dense forests of central India.
I love Jungles and country side and just the site of dense greenery fill my senses , and above all the company of my dear family , Its like having Browne with hot chocolate fudge.

Its so Greene green around there at home .My younger sister is home with my little 4yrs old nephew,who keeps his grand paa n granny going about ,no matter what hours .

I am having lots of things in my  mind to share with you about home and the people and day-to day life there ,with loads of pics.
If there is anything specific you are interested in about Indian country side ,please let me know .

You must have guessed by know ? what my next blessing squares are ....


I could never imagine home with out loads of green and flowers around . I am very much a natures child ,brought up in the very lap of mother nature ,spent childhood playing about there,

we have dense teak wood forests and hundreds of variety of flora and fonna , deers, tigers ,jackal ,
foxes , bison , peacocks . There are two national tiger reserves and two national parks in about 200kms radius.


The famous JUNGLE BOOK of Rudyard Kipling  is thought to have been set in Pench National Park,which lies in our district ,The Jungle Book (1894) is a collection of stories written by Rudyard Kipling.

The stories were first published in magazines in 1893–4. The original publications contained illustrations, some by Rudyard's father, John Lockwood Kipling. Kipling was born in India and spent the first six years of his childhood there. After about ten years in England, he went back to India and worked there for about six-and-half years. These stories were written when Kipling lived in Vermont.The Jungle Book, because of its moral tone, came to be used as a motivational book by the Cub Scouts, a junior element of the Scouting movement.

 The ones among you who have seen the TV series Jungle book can imagine , how beautiful the life around here could be .
This reminds me of lots of blessings which we have through our jungles.
So ladies...........lot more to come.

I would like to mention Denise here for her commendable commitment towards blessing project .
she is the surely much talented and blessed .check out in her blog ---- Denise's 100 Blessings  --- ,she has maximum number of completed blocks ,that's surely motivating for a person like me .

well dear lovelies ,
