Like a bridge over troubled water

Updated: Mar 24, 2021

Before this bridge came into existence in Kemthoor, Udupi, people had to cross the river on a boat or go all the way around it.

It consumed a lot of time and effort. Thankfully, a sturdy bridge was built for everyone's benefit. When we heard the story, it had us introspecting about some things. In life too, we tend to create too many barriers to communication between our loved ones.


We remember the fights and we remember the disagreements. We blame everything on someone else and create gaps. In such situations, it's imperative to build bridges by practicing forgiveness and opening up about our feelings. Life's easier when you do that.
