The Lovely Walk

Which is the MOST elegant walk that you have ever seen? 

A few days back while I was strolling along Marine Drive, I think I saw the most elegant walk I have ever seen in my life till now….So who’s walk was it? Who was gifted with such a wonderful stride that it made me want to stop and treasure the moment? Nope it wasn’t a model….Not a young lady.. Not a cutesy toddler…Not a couple on a romantic sojourn… 🙂  

More clues? It was a trio – a trio with a man in the middle, a lady holding him from the right by his arm, and another (not a lady) :D…..a man walking with his arm around this guy’s shoulder. More guesses?And no it was not a group of friends either..…have you run out of ideas? 

It was a son in his late thirties, with his mother walking hand in hand like his girlfriend and his father walking like his best buddy!  

How rarely do we see people who may need help with walking being escorted so beautifully and elegantly! 🙂 

If I had a camera that picture would have been one of those that could hang on a wall and say a million different things each time one glanced at it!  Sometimes gestures say a lot more than words and promises! It’s true –  love and respect is more about how you act than what you will ever be able to say!

    Hey Laxmi! Kudos… neha told me bout this idea o yours and was instantly excited… but dint know how amazingly and refreshingly beautiful this venture could be…. Its awesome to be able to atriculate the things that make life so absolutely worth it!! and to find meaning in others’ “Quaint Treasures’ pretty much reinforces human being as the nurturers for me!

    Nehu………. cant tell u how much this story o the walk reflects life as it has been for me…. its been the quaint and consistent acts by the quaint and consistent people in my life that has made me… me. Thanks for being part of that quaintness 🙂

    all i could do was smile at the end of reading this. it also made me realise i’ve become so busy in this life of mine that i dont even have the time to look around and observe the small things in life even if it is whilst walking the streets….

    all the best girls!
