There are no two opinions about the fact that morning walk is a boon for health. No diet or tonic is as effective as the morning walk. One has to pay nothing for it.
I take a walk every morning with my friend Raju. Raju is my class mate and next door neighbour. We walk along the road. This lonely road leads out of the town.
Yesterday we started at 5 a.m. As we went out a cool morning breeze welcomed us. We passed through some fields of wheat. The spreading fields presented a beautiful scene, the chirping of the birds created a lively sensation in our hearts.
Some farmers were ploughing their fields at a distance. We passed through a small village where we saw village young women going to draw water. They were singing sweet folk songs; we enjoyed these songs very much. The golden ball of sun appeared in the East. The horizon was shining with a golden light. With folded hands we stood for a few minutes to pay our respect to the Sun-God. Bright rays of light made the scenery more attractive and pleasing. We walked and walked till we reached the stream. It flows near our town. We sat on its bank and took rest for some time. We saw a garden nearby. We walked into it.
There were grassy plots. We walked bare-footed on this grass. We enjoyed the fragrance of the beautiful flowers growing on a large number of plants.
As it was about seven in the morning, we walked back towards our homes. We had covered a distance of four kilometres from our Don homes now we hastened back and reached home at 8 a.m. When I returned home from my walk I found the nature changed. All the sights and sound had a wonderful effect on my body and "mind. My mind became fresh and active. The fatigue which was caused by learning my lessons seemed to be gone. I felt that I had energy enough to do my work with ease.
A walk in the morning keeps us healthy and strong. It gives a good start to our clay
