Bozoical trails ....

Like you and me, Bozo, Mumbai's only dog-with-his-own-blog is a regular middle class guy.  He is, like us, in awe of those of his compatriots , who perform in the service of the nation, with special facilities and training.

Like them, he also follows some trails, as he goes for walks with three different folks everyday, keeping a keen eye on his surroundings.  And he realizes, that each of us have a role to play in the lives of the people around us.

Magiceye captures him on one of his trails....

You know ,
some of my friends
real strapping chaps,
who have
their own valet facility,
are often photographed
going around like this,
in the service of the nation,
as they chase after
some evil folks,
smelling something suspicious.

I've realized,
we have our own places
in this world,
and we are destined
to follow different trails.

The young ones
I played with,
have grown up and moved away.

And so
I pretend to be
the remaining  young one
at home
doing my stuff
on the daily walks,
smiling at friends,
glaring at cigarette butts
in the compound,
sniffing at spots of petrol.

Just sometimes,
i see a pretty butterfly
and feel like chasing it.

I find it difficult,
and then,
I content myself,
sniffing around,
and looking for signs,
or a trail,
that leads
to my own
carefree childhood,
with the other kids
in this Garden of Jade...
