Welcome: Spring!
By S Mukhtar
"Behold my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we should soon see the results of their love!" said Sitting Bull. Sure, this springtime sun-earth love - pure divine eternal - has and will ever result in love reborn and reinvigorated throughout Kingdoms Plantalia and Animalia.

Spring's love permeating, Kingdom Plantalia now very generally will quietly slowly steadily put on bewitching robes of leafy green openly messaging love and peace and inwardly manufacturing and getting stored foods not for itself alone but almost all that live on earth. And soon the Kingdom will bloom forth mesmerising flowers and inflorescences messaging out the ultimate in love and continuation of the species, for all posterity.

Spring's love again, Kingdom Animalia shall not be any behind. New vigour vitality virility will flow unto them all as if straight from heavens. Not physical capacities alone, their mental capabilities too, varyingly blunted by preceding Winter though, will be sharpened once again, God knows by what tools. And almost everyone somehow mysteriously will acknowledge Helen Keller's "Life is either a daring adventure or nothing" and Leo Tolstoy's "Spring is the time of plans and projects," follow Theodore Roosevelt's "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are," and observe Margaret Atwood's dictate that "In the spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt."

And to all humans indeed, as says Robin Williams, every "Spring is nature's way of saying, 'Let's party!'" Sure they will party more and more, everywhere and everyday; yes, Kashmir, in spite of being made a hell by politicians, will continue to be Heaven on Earth for all such parties. And Kashmir Spring once again welcomes one and all!

And then Spring's role in the sports world too is marvellous. The three other seasons together, Spring defeats them all by its immeasurable love, initiation, encouragement, and support for all sports. Yes, to the entire sports world "The true harbinger of spring is not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of the bat on the ball (Bill Veeck)." Spring here unparalleled throughout the world; Kashmir should have been the world's topmost sports place. But here once again thanks to politics the world's dirtiest game.
