  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    I sometimes wonder that life can probably be compared best to a Rose Garden. Some writers like to do so in their efforts to romanticize life. Often as we walk through the rose garden, we become refreshed and rejuvenated by the warm, pleasant and sensuous breeze that carries captivating exquisite fragrance of beautiful roses. Life seems so remarkably wonderful at that very moment. Then on some occasions as we walk through the same rose garden, the sight of dried rose bushes with wilted flowers, dried rose petals and heaps of dead leaves all around saddens us deep inside. The cold callous currents of strong wind make us shiver, with the shocking harsh reality about the uncertainty of life. Oh, life can be so awesome and beautiful at times, and yet so cold and cruel on occasions. Such is the duality of life that reverberates and resonates in sync with the Rose Garden!
