Dear Ladies, When I was in my early teens, we lived in an old house and it had a WELLl behind. The WELL was around 50 to 60 feet deep. Nobody in my house knows that it was my friend too. I was sharing all my joys and sorrows with it. Whenever I go near it to fetch water, I just peep in and it would show my face. It was my natural mirror. I look more beautiful in that mirror. It is a truth. Your image looks more beautiful when you look yourself in water. I would say a "Hi" to it. Not to my image but to the well. I wasn't matured and was sharing the joys and sorrows of my age with it. I feel like my sorrows drowning and my joys come like a spring. The echo of my voice in it gave me courage to face the day to day life. It was a morning exercise for me to draw water from my WELL. Yes, It was keeping me fit. When I receive guests, I take a lot of pleasure in introducing my WELL to them. When they see it with their eyes widely opened I take a fresh breath from my WELL. During a particular season which I don't remember, I used to see small fishes escaping into the water from the bucket. I would feel as if I have a big aquarium in my house. We even use to throw Lord Ganesha into the WELL after the Ganesha Chathurti festival and it never gave us a feeling that we are departing with Lord Ganesha. After all we are dumping Him into our own WELL. My WELL gave refuge to our drunken neighbour once. My neigbour's son once came drunk to the house. Nobody in the house knows that he used to drink. His father got angry with him and took a bamboo cane to beat him. He immediately ran and stepped down into the well holding the rope. Only after his father agreed to withdraw he came up. He saluted my WELL in his own drunken style for giving him refuge. That was a good comedy. My WELL made me laugh to the core. Overall it had a speciality of full-filing our wishes. Yes! It was our "Wishing Well" too. We used to pray God to full-fill our wish and would throw a stone into the well. With the noise of the water splash, we would predict how far our wish had reached the Almighty. Now that years have passed and we have changed houses, I really miss my dearest WELL a lot.
