The Paradise: An ideal city 22 August, 2014
I look at her from across the street with her head held high and a broad smile on her face walking in shorts and a top. Listing to her iPod and dancing and singing along the tunes completely oblivious of the world outside, just content within her herself.

The sun is shining at 50 degrees but nobody feels a tinge of heat due to so much of greenery, high trees and eucalyptus everywhere to provide fresh oxygen and small shrubs and grass to prevent mud from flying away.

I see small children playing in gardens where their parents leave them before going to work, these children play the whole day with each other like there is no tomorrow having no fear of being kidnapped as robbery or kidnapping doesn't exist in this city called paradise.

Well it truly is paradise, a city which is run by a strong independent women called Margaret who provides free education to all children and fresh drinking water for everybody for free. There are windmills that produce electricity and the concept of wastage just doesn't exist in this scarcely populated city.

This is a place where poor people do not have to live in the streets but in apartments provided by the government, old age homes are not for people to leave there parents in because they don't want them but a place where old people want to go and live themselves so that they can spend there last few years enjoying  with there friends.

Everybody is happy and why won't they be, the weather is perfect due to greenery, there is no shortage of food ever, whenever people need anything they just go to the market and ask for it and in case they are running short of money it is not at all a problem.

The shopkeepers give it away for free owing to everybody's good nature which is taken as a goodwill. In this city feelings speak louder than money. Everybody cares for one another and help is always available not because it is the right thing to do and not because they are obliged to do it but because they want to do it. That is what everybody has grown up seeing and that is what they pass on to there children.

In the weekends the city hall has small plays organised along with wine festivals where the whole town gets together and enjoys there heritage and culture. A place where everybody enjoys a stress free life and has to take no tension what so ever about anything in particular is the place to live and what better than a place whose name is only "paradise".
