I can’t understand.(Poem)
Lord, why You created innocent and beautiful animals like deer,
rabbit etc., only as fodder to be eaten by wild animals like tiger
and lion? Why You created human beings and handed them over
to Destiny, with authority to assign them roles strange and queer
in the drama of life, tragic or comic, and make them dance like mere
dolls according to his fancy? I can’t understand. But, this is not fair,
really, My Lord. We want to be dominated only by You ,whom we fear
and believe. Oh, Lord, please listen to our prayer and do us the favour.
From San Francisco Airport, we boarded Air Canada flight at 7 A.M. and
reached Vancouver at 9.15 A.M. Again at 11.15 A.M. we boarded another
Air Canada flight and reached Calgary, the cultural capital of Canada,
at 12.30 P.M. and I adjusted my time at wrist watch to 1.30 P.M.,
according to the local time at the place of destination. My son has come to
Calgary International Airport to receive us and took us to his
apartment in London House, located at 4th Avenue, S.W.,
Downtown Calgary. He had brought us delicious roti and
cuisines from the nearby Indian restaurent, named
Glory of India. In the everning, we go for a stroll along
the pathway of Sien Lok Park, Chinatown. It is a
Chinese cultural park, having the pleasantly shaded
pathway and located along the shores of South Bow River
in downtown, Calgary. We saw the dabbling ducks
and white-breasted Nuthatch on the pathway of the river.
Chinatown is located between the Bow river and 4th Avenue,
S.W. in Calgary.The name Sien Lok comes from a Chinese
proverb ”Wai Sien Gee Lok” which means happiness is found
in being charitable. South of the two lions guarding the park,
stands the sculpture, ”In Search of Gold Mountain”, made from the
granite brought from Hopei Province in China. The area where we live
is a business oriented zone and there is always lively pedestrian traffic.
Calgary is the largest city in the Alberta province of Canada.
Calgary Transit’s CTrain travels along 7 Avenue, the downtown portion,
which is known as the free fare zone. It is free to ride either CTrain route
between 3 Street East and 11 Street West along 7 Avenue.
