"Conversation. What is it? A Mystery! It's the art of never seeming bored, of touching everything with interest, of pleasing with trifles, of being fascinating with nothing at all. How do we define this lively darting about with words, of hitting them back and forth, this sort of brief smile of ideas which should be conversation?" Guy de Maupassant

Today is Makar Sankranti in India ... in some parts of the country it is also Kite Flying Day. In an urban jungle like Mumbai, where there is little open space, it is really sad to see the few trees left, covered with kites stuck in them. A couple of pictures taken on my cell phone from a moving car, as we drove on the Western Express highway ... where there is much construction work going on, and trees rapidly vanishing.
