I walk a minimum of 5 kms. everyday, I do this on my way back from work. I love the sights and smells that a walk on a busy road offers. I walk past the Amman koil in K K Nagar every evening, the temple, shops, busy traffic of vehicles and pedestrians offer rich tactile, olfactory, visual and auditory stimulus. The rains have made the soil squishy and my shoes breathe through the ooze of the wet soil. The line of garland and flower shop is a visual and olfactory treat. I halt to take in the heady smell of roses, jasmines and rajnigandha. I stopped here one of the evenings to make this sketch.
