WINTER AID


Come winter. Yes, the season most awaited, after the flashing monsoons and the scorching summer. A season that ushers in the welcome cool breeze and chiling winds with a sunshine that's just enough to keep the day warm. A season of snowcapped montains and,frozen rivulets. A season most people take time off from their regular work and routine affairs, like most species of animals that hibernate during all winter. A season when the tea stalls and barbecue parlours are the most visited joints. A season when the window displays of clothiers adorn with much pomp, garments made of leather and sheep wool, in vibrant colours to match the moods of the young and old alike. Formals for the executive and the off ice-goer and casuals for the fun-loving and happy-go-lucky teen-ager. And for the homely housewife, the traditional blanket, which grandma never forgot to wrap you with,when you went to sleep.
      
Come winter. Yes, the season most you is the most awaited by you is dreaded by many. The cool breeze sends chills through the spine of under-nourished children and the fragile old parents deprived of even a sip of hot tea. Where two square meals a day is a feast for most families. Where the concept of wardrobe is an out-of-the, world theory. Where small bon-fires up out of dry bushes is all that works as a heating system to the trembling and the shivering. Where winter holidays and winter sports are an unheard of phenomena. Where a pair of decent clothes to cover the body with is a far-fetched dream, leave alone leather jackets, woolen clothes and blankets. Yes, the very same blanket which you most casually cover yourself with, the blanket which protects you from the chill and brings you warmth all night is the one most sought after by thousands of families in Northern India.
