Runners' Anthem

We; run for delight; We; run for might; We; take our life as light; Just to reach better height.
We; run for fun; We; beat no one; We; run as one; Just for a grand run.

We; run with our souls; We; run with no fouls; We; run with great guts; Just to conquer ourselves. Image Source: Internet

My sojourn at New Delhi with my cousin taught me a different lesson. Here in the Capital, most people especially youngsters are extremely well dressed. The availability of cheap variety of costumes is one of the major reasons behind this fashion explosion among the youth. The daily bazaars and discounts offered by branded stores really lure customers. I got into my cousin’s house the day I arrived in Delhi. As soon as she opened the door and saw me, she exclaimed: “Oh, Justin you look so lean…but are these shirts and trousers on you were the same you were wearing last year when I saw you?” I didn’t like that comment much. Anyway I smil…
