The clouds seemed bountiful and the sky merciless for they were working tirelessly for 18 hours without caring for a siesta, well not at least for us. With the incessant showers the city had come to a stand still.

A simple gesture of offering water and food coupled with the warmth of humanity to the girl will make all the difference. The sense of pride and the self-satisfying happiness instilled in you will be incomparable to any that man has ever known.
After all, spreading love and joy is worth way more than spreading legs and nutella. 🙂
Ever felt messed up in life and thought- “God! I am in the middle of nowhere” or lead a life full of luxuries but felt the happiness factor missing. Went through some heart wrenching article in the newspaper and found it difficult to express what you felt like. Well, this place is perfect for all these souls as well as all you lovely fellas. Enough for now. Will keep you guys posted. 🙂
