Sword fencing

In my last post I became a self proclaimed lazy bones.

But something in this big wide world didn't want to buy the theory. I got to know that my kid cousin too is taking up sword fencing.

I was reminded of my not so long ago days when me and my sister use to have those fencing bouts. I could recall the euphoria that was created at the the inter-school level and later to district and state level by the two of us devoting time to this wonderful sport.

Back home most people now consider it to be "not a girl's thing."

But I salute those who give it a try for profession or hobby. And a even greater gratitude to those parents who let their children pursue such adventures.
