8. Sugarcane Juice

I was waiting for the bus on the road in Hyderabad.

Even though it was September, the heat and humidity were making their presence felt.
The road was crowded.
And I saw him.


The stall was clean and well arranged. He was using paper glasses and there was a garbage bin to throw those.

Initially he was engrossed in serving the customers. Slowly the crowd disappeared.
He realized that I was taking his photograph.
A minute of leisure for him - because the next moment another customer arrived on the scene.

I wanted to ask many questions about his occupation.
Maybe, next time.

  1. Experiences in life
    are like sugarcane;
    some straight,
    sometimes in pieces,
    some slightly crooked,
    and all stacked together
    in the mind.

    You choose
    some,
    and push them through
    the mind mill,
    churning your thoughts.

    Some pleasing sweet results
    shared in a glass
    with friends,
    and
    some
    thrown away,
    presumed useless,
    but possibly of use
    somewhere
    in making learning bricks,
    tough with fibre.

    If we only learn to churn.....
