I am sure you believe “Cleanliness is next to Godliness”.  It has been seen in various animals and birds that in addition to their personal hygiene they spend time in additional grooming of their Partners. These partnerships are longer lasting and more like having a best friend in your life. The grooming usually is stroking, scratching and massaging. They groom one another.

Love is not just about finding a good partner. It is also about being a good one.

Two colorful parrots from Jurong Bird Park of Singapore. As I watch these colourful parrots, I recall these lines:

As love

that is

each day upon the twig

which may die

So springs your love

fresh up

lusty for the sun

the bird’s companion

~ William Carlos Williams

The above image has a curve at Bondi Beach, Sydney, Australia.

The sunlight flashes off your windshield,

and when I look up into the small, posted mirror,

I watch you diminish–my echo, my twin–

and vanish around a curve in this whip

of a road we can’t help traveling together.”

However, wherever you go and whichever type of place you explore you always have to keep in consideration the safety measures in order to remain safe from a variety of dangerous things that can ruin your trip. Australia is a great place to have an experience of driving.

In bowling, when all of the pins have been knocked down after the infinity ball of a frame it is known as a spare. It is usually denoted by this symbol / a forward slash mark.

What is a game of bowling?
A game of bowling consists of 10 frames, in which a bowler has two chances per frame to knock down all ten pins. If a bowler knocks down all ten pins in those two turns in the 10th frame, an extra bonus chance is awarded.

Jubilant Peacock

A Jubilant Peacock

The peacock, the national bird of India, represents a harmonious unity of vivid colors and also symbolises the country’s multi-religious and multilingual unity in cultural diversity.

A dancing peacock represents jubilant spirits.  Early morning when the sky is overcast with monsoon clouds, and the female is nearby, it is a spectacular treat to watch him dance. A peacock’s body is covered with attractive feathers. The male peacock opens its feathers before the rain. They dance by opening up their feathers to attract female peahens to mate. This is the reason why peacocks mate mainly in the period April to September.

For an Indian farmer, a good crop and a good monsoon raise their hopes of reaping a bumper harvest.  When the much-awaited first rain of the monsoon season starts, the farmers of a village spontaneously burst into a merry dance and joyously sing.
