Who won? Or did they both loose?

I randomly bet that the right team won.

That photo said "fun" to me! :) I guess that the back-and-forth of life fascinates me...I'm not too much on "static". Enjoy college for all that it is! BTW, I loved how your blog name is there amidst the struggle.

I am exhausted just watching them strain.

As for your question on my blog, I do not "go" to work. I take care of my 4 year old grandson while his parents work. But yes, I have more time on Sunday mornings to enjoy a sunrise.

I found myself staring at the photo trying to figure out who won! Please come and tell us who won?

They have a good pull going on there. Nearly everyone is wearing blue jeans. The team in the background do not have far to go back any further without stepping into the bushes! So I wonder who won!
Would love to know how you get your pictures to come up so big on the blog without having to click on them Kunal?

Interesting that they call it a tug of WAR! And so much of the time, people seem unnecessarily pitted against each other.

I'm glad you wrote about the blog title. Still, I think there is something mindful in seeing. Especially in seeing well, which you do.

Was this your college class?

Tug of war is somehow so traditional, so Indian....and used to be a feature of every primary school sports day here!
