Today was the birthday of my father. In the morning, I explained in my own way, the journeys from Garhwal, to Shimla to Delhi,which one of our forefathers-Rama Bhatt undertook in later part of the 19th century. His son Brahmi Dutt Bhatt , had three sons and a daughter. The middle son, Bhawani, was my grandfather.
Yesterday, after taking some pictures of the West Caucasian Tur, Bactrian camels and exploring the Frank Schofield Memorial Confucian park, we went through a cultural album I have been building. Toronto Zoo is a sister zoo of Seoul Zoo
WE SHARE OUR EARTH WITH THEM
Then we went through some Albums of Yesteryears..walks in Ghadames-on the ancient caravan routes of Sahara, Egypt- Masr-the mother of civilizations, Chicago,Turkey-walks on Bosphorus, Istanbul and Konya.
Evening walk in Rome-2011

My father instilled in me a love of gardens, museums and culture (see blog- Museums with the children..https://prashantbhatt.com/museums-with-the-children/)
While Meditating on the Ontario Waterfront, remembered some of those journeys together and felt his spiritual presence.
