Reflection of the surroundings on the pond water...

I have always been hugely attracted to the ponds in my paternal home in Orissa.
Summer reminds me of them immensely.
As a kid,my entire battalion of cousins would march to the pond under my grandfather's supervision.I remember playing in the water for hours,trying to catch hold of the tiny fishes,trying to swim.
The best part was when we found a old trunk of a banana tree.All the kids got hold of it and we swam all around the pond.
These ponds are major sources of income through fish breeding.Nearly every household boasts of one.

But for me they are still a place where I can stare into nothing for hours and feel refreshed.

Where The Mind is Without Fear

Where the mind is without fear

and the head is held high
Where knowledge is free
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments
By narrow domestic walls
Where words come out from the depth of truth
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit
Where the mind is led forward by thee Into ever-widening thought and action
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake
