Life's Canvas

                                                      A Veil Of Smile

                                                  I put on a veil of smile
                                                   To bury my anguishes.
                                                  I feigned a brave heart
                                                  To conceal my weaknesses.
                                                  I had summer dreams
                                                  To be free from the nightmares.
                                                  I embraced my solitude
                                                 To shut off the heartless masses.
                                                 But, I splashed in color
                                                To liven up the life's canvas.

To me, getting car-servicing done is an opportunity in disguise, not an ordeal. This Sunday, I packed my water colour box, sketching pencils, a bottle of water, Sunday Times and The Telegraph and reached the Hyundai Servicing Center by 10 in the morning. The center has now shifted to Digha near Bata Factory. This one is far more spacious than the previous one. It was  advantageous for me not having a TV set in the customers' lounge. Knowing that it would take not less than 2-3 hours, got settled in the sofa, went through all the news and then after water coloured the outside view. By the  time the car was serviced, my water colour was almost done.
