  1. Wonderful interpretation :)

  2. Well written post !

  3. You've wonderfully depicted your connotations for that spectacular word.Here's what I thought about it. Mine understanding is a little superficial though.

    1. Thanks Tushar!
      You were one of the early posters on the subject, and I have read your take. I am full of appreciation of your nicely expressed views on the subject.

  4. Very Good post.. i like it.

    1. Thanks Gaurab, for letting me know that you liked it.

  6. How many Indian kids have you come across who juggle balls in the park? I'm sure, none.
    You know what I'm trying to get at... so I won't give words to it. However, I must say that what will make you feel really rich is when you sit down, think, assimilate your thoughts, and write a post without any prompting from what others have already written.

    1. Thanks Mr Passey for visiting my post, and also for giving us an interesting prompt to write about.

      Yes, I agree with you. The kids these days prefer to play Zoo-keeper or Pokemon rather than see someone juggle balls. But then, there aren't any people (read parents) now who would have time or interest to juggle balls for them.

      True. I feel rich after writing each of my post. And a billionaire, if I win a 1k voucher :)

  7. Liked it to match great values

    1. Thanks Suja, for appreciating my post!

  8. That is such a wonderful interpretation. Lovely post. :)

  9. Very nicely written, Saket!
    I agree :) I feel rich too when any of the above happens with me :)
