a song for the barefoot Ram

This morning I saw two sadhus walking in the opposite direction.

'Jai Ramji Ki', one of them said, smiling at my bare feet.

'Ram Ram bhai,' I smiled back, thrilled to have something in common with a sadhu. It was such a beautiful moment, to feel connected to someone with a free spirit.

I wish I could have sung aloud this song to them.

To walk down the town,
'You don't need no food to eat,

All you need is two bare feet.

How I long sometimes to walk across town, here in Mumbai, not with bare feet maybe, but just my feet. I'd be much happier if this city was walk-able.
