The Buffalo Rider

One finds many an interesting face during a morning walk through the village. And this definitely was one! Mounted on a buffalo with absolute poise and ease, he did look a little intimidating. Not to mention that the whole scenario reminded me of the Hindu mythological god of death, Yamraj who rides a buffalo. I hesitated for a few minutes before asking him for a picture.

And did he pose! Like a king seated on his throne, he smiled at my camera. The serious look on his face was replaced by a beautiful smile that was reflected in his eyes. And on he went after that. To find the best pastures for his buffaloes.It is normal for the villagers to take their animals grazing early in the morning. After all, these animals are their main source of income. I doubt if our old man himself had had his breakfast.


Nothing but a recipient of Christ's grace. I am a young doctor and I use this space to find meaning in the bedlam of my thoughts. My blog might resonate with the screams of a young adult finding her place in life, the stench of hospital corridors, images of the many people who intrigue me and the lessons my Saviour Jesus teaches me.
