We always talk about our senses and the role they play. Well, here it is.

'only my fingers remember the password '. An automatic repulse action!

I remember my mother saying the same thing when I ask to give the recipe details. She says, 'Kai alavu kanna ku teriyam' which means 'Eyes know better about the exact (hand) spoon measurements '!

And yes, when listening to the crickets is ON, the rest of the action is taken care off.

just feeding my thoughts
