Evil at its Peak

I had written a post here but then as an after thought it turned out to be one that does not quite fit in  with the rest of the blog and have deleted the content. The post had talked of evils present in the world today beginning with the internal war that is on in Syria and the suffering it is causing to even sweet innocent children to the greed driven massive and widespread financial corruption in India and madness driven brutal rapes and gang rapes of minors and children in India. The post had expressed the fear that the Lord would somehow intervene to restore order or even give a warning.

He planted a few new flowers in my garden and has now gone to his village with his mother, with instructions for me to water his plants everyday.  It was portulaca he planted that is good for the summer heat that is still on here in Jaipur but we expect cooling monsoons soon. This brief update has a recent pic of Golu. His pics when he was much younger are elsewhere in this blog. I have had the pleasure to share some in his upbringing ever since he was three months old. The little rock collection behind him and plants were arranged by Shyamu, Golu's father. I filled the empty space in front of the rockery with clover like oxalis because it grows so easily and never fails to delight with its tiny blooms and happy green leaves. In winters there is spinach too between the oxalis. We use bab…
