The backwaters of Muttukaduhave been developed by TTDC as a scenic picnic spot and a centre for water sports. The windsurfing regatta organised in February every year attracts enthusiasts from all over the world. Muttukadu is about 36 kms from Chennai on the ECR enroute to Mamallapuram. Some of the images of Muttukadu shot during first week of January this year.


I gave the title Leisure to this photograph in Flickr and I remembered the quote of William Henry Davies on seeing this image.

What is this life if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. No time to stand beneath the boughs And stare as long as sheep or cows. No time to see, when woods we pass, Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass. No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night. No time to turn at Beauty’s glance, And watch her feet, how they can dance. No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began. A poor life this if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare.
-William Henry Davies
