If ever you are in a countryside and if you have time and opportunity, watch out for spider’s web. Stay close and observe, how it weaves the web. And if you have more patience, once it is done, you may get to see also, how it retract the whole web, a work of probably 1, 2 or more hours, in few minutes…
A visit to home is always an opportunity to explore nature at its best through my lenses. No idea, when I will get a chance next!.
Abu Dhabi is a beautifully planned city. As we move closer towards the 49th UAE National Day celebrations, let me try and walk take you through some of the historic and beautiful places #inabudhabi – my home away from home.
In this video, you will see the fountains situated at Abu Dhabi Municipality. It has been a place to be for residents since a long time. With dedicated tracks for walking and cycling and with a very good full Basketball court nearby, evenings are always busy with fitness freaks.
Al Wathba Wetland Reserve is the first area in the Emirate designated for protection by law and was declared a Ramsar site in 2013.
The reserve is particularly known for its large population of Greater Flamingos – with as many as 4,000 living there during autumn and spring – but also hosts more than 250 species of birds, 37 plant species and a wide range of aquatic life. There are two self-guided walking trails (1.5 kms or 3 kms) for visitors to explore and a bird-watching hide to observe the flamingos.

Slowly, they are coming back to business. In case, you have a plan to create an event, whether it is corporate or private, here is a contact. You can refer my name.

I am always fascinated by Date Palm trees and Dates in them. The beauty of joy of watching them is to be experienced. If not yet done, next time when you go for a walk, please do. Watch the leaves and fruits swinging in the gentle breeze. You will feel as if they are talking to you.
During the weekend, I was at a local shopping mall in Abu Dhabi. Eid Holidays, although not to the normal times, there was sufficient enough public to ensure safe distance protocol was in place by the local authorities.
As I walked, I noticed a dad with a young girl following him from one shop to another. I was happy to see the little one wearing the face mask and walk quietly behind her dad. Both of them had face masks and had kept it properly.
After sometimes, I noticed, whenever the dad received a phone call and he lowered down his face mask, the little girl too changed the position of her mask and kept as her father was doing!. As he finished his call, he brought it back to normal position and the child too did the same!.
I was smiling to myself when I observed this continue a few times.
It brought to my mind, the important point that all health and hygiene practices will work only if we as parents and elders follow in front of our children.
This Mind Speaks note is just a caution to all those who have small kids at home. Make it a habit to wear a face mask and they will follow suite.
A nice article “Tips on How to Get Kids to Wear Face Masks” from Stanford Children’s Health is linked for you to read.
