Like a Squirrel

“Living is no laughing matter: you must live with great seriousness like a squirrel for example – I mean without looking for something beyond and above living, I mean living must be your whole occupation”.
(Nâzım Hikmet Ran – commonly known as Nâzım Hikmet, Turkish poet, 1902 – 1963)

This was shot last Friday at the tomb of Mohammad Ghaus in Gwalior in the central Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
It was before sunset when people came to offer namaaz (prayer) and Ì was standing in front of the Sufi saint mazaar (tomb) which is a pilgrimage centre for both the Hindus and the Muslims when I saw this funny squirrel.
