This is the Corner Stone Icecream shop near Airlines Hotel at Bangalore. When my friend and me went there to pick up food I saw this beautiful couplet of Saint Kabir Das painted on the wall of the building in Hindi.  In short the couplet means ” Nature is never at Haste”.

The direct  word to word english translation is as the following:

Slowly slowly O mind, everything in own pace happens
Gardener may water with a hundred pots, fruit arrives only in its season –

I was like a zen feeling in a crazy hectic day. Suddenly it made me realize that there are so many things around us which we do not notice as our minds are always engrossed in various thoughts and worries. we hardly realize that there is a time for everything to happen. We cannot achieve things in haste.
