Of hundreds of friends I have,
this guy is special.
When no one can help, no one can support
When in trouble, he appears out of thin air
Does his job in split of a second and
Alas, he is gone.
Once again, I am free. fearless
And I don’t need him anymore.
One of the stories about him and a warrior
goes like this ..
The hero who has fought so many wars,
turns around and checks his footsteps.
To his surprise, he finds a pair of footsteps
always following him and at times the footsteps
are beside his own foot steps. Yes, Its the footsteps
of the unseen friend whose presene he had always felt.
Then, he finds that at times when he was in trouble,
There is only his foot steps.
But then he realizes, those were not his.
Those deep footsteps were caused by someone
carrying an heavy object and who appears struggling
It was the unseen friend carrying the warrior and
struggling all the way.
And when we check our foot steps,
what is that we are going to see ? Only a pair ?
Dedicated to the Almighty ….

Kurishu Palli : Friday’s Magic
This small church is Kozhokode / Calicut seems to be enjoying the large number of visitors it has. With an ever growing Stone idol the church attracts devotees belonging to all religions. The “9 Friday Magic Rule” which is applicable to many of the chruches works here also.
But then there was a school boy who wanted to have a bicycle and visited the church on 9 consecutive fridays or more. And right now he is writing the blog and he never owned a bicycle.
