Life, thread and looms


First day at new work as a labor, Jai looked around the textile mill and closed his eyes. The sight of a doctor’s clinic with his younger brother in white coat and stethoscope flashed before him.

After dad’s demise Jai was the sole bread earner of his family. This new job meant an increase in pay and also being able to afford his younger brother’s education. Though he did not like the cacophony of the looming machines all around but he had to get accustomed to it.

Life,family and relations so much resemble the spindles ,threads and looms, he thought.

  2. I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?

    Superb work!
