Dubai-Home Away from Home
Dubai has been my home for many years now. My home away from home. This is my tribute to the wonderful city of Dubai.
All these photos that have been showcased here are taken by my dear husband - Venkat. He is an avid photographer with an eye for beauty and a great talent to capture scenes with his magical eye.
Dubai is my home away from home,
A land of cultural diversity,
Feelings of warmth, welcome and comfort,
I have always had in Dubai on Planet Earth,
Nowhere else on earth, have I truly felt,
At home, as I do in Dubai,
The very best.
Dubai has every facility,
Schools, colleges and universities,
All the excellent facilities,
To suit each one's cares and needs,
Help is in abundant and is always there,
You can live without a worry or care.
Architecture at its very best,
Buildings, Museums, and all the rest,
Cultural shows, movies and programmes on TV,
Wonderful episodes for you and me,
Concerts from all over the world,
An incredible musical tale forever to be told.
Artworks galore and artists too,
Singers from every corner of the world,
To entertain you,
Dancers enrapture your heart and soul,
Leaves you spiralling out of control!
Not a moment goes by without a sale,
Fashion shows, all are a beautiful tale.
Every feast is a delectable joy,
Eats and treats for all girls and boys,
Air-conditioned bus stops wherever you go,
Zipping and zooming metros, quite a show,
Malls and malls, one the biggest of all,
The Burj Khalifa standing very tall.
Help and facilities for the physically challenged,
Wherever you go, facilities for the elderly,
For we love them, all and we care deeply.
I am all in admiration of the green nature,
Spread out wide with remarkable stature,
Each single plant cultivated with care,
Each flower made to bloom,
And looked after with great care,
Landscapes with greenery a pleasant sight to see,
Colorful flowers dotted in between all these.
All this and many, many more,
My home away from home.
