To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child , a garden patch, or a redeemed condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

My tryst with the African lion

My trip to Zambia came off well. The high point was when we wen to the Munda Wanga zoo and botanical garden in Lusaka. Fortunately, when we reached there it was the feeding time for the big animals. So we could catch a good sight of a pride of lions - a mother and her five children including the dominant male (pictured here), another (castrated!) male and five females.
