Narrative: Today was the blissful day for us in midst of winds. We learned that Gardening is the most therapeutic and blissful act we could do. It made us forget every difficult weather conditions around. We were enjoying the smell of things in soil, by getting dirty without feeling guilty. It took little time to grow sprouts but one tiny leaf appeared from one of sprout as a light of joy with a new era of life. And slowly-slowly browns started turning into greens with a sprinkle of water and martian warmth.
