Just when you think the rains are over.. There comes another drizzle, another trickle of incessant drops that wets the parched earth.
As I wake up this morning, I wake up with a new found clarity. A friend recently told me not to regret things, because it’s only when you go after them are you satisfied that you took a chance – that you justified whether you could or could not do something that you wanted to.
I wake up to the buzz of vehicles going past, it’s a welcome change from the peace of the hills. People are going about their lives and they probably have tons of things to do. I’m just chilling in the balcony, feet up the grill and watching reddened leaves fall to the ground,dead. Autumn is already here. It is making way for the new leaves that will eventually take this place early spring. But for now, Winter is coming.
Kho Gaye Hum Yaha from Baar Baar Dekho, due credits to Prateek Kuhad and Jasleen Royal take my feelings a notch higher.
Tedhe mede raaste hain,
Jaaduyi imaaratein hain
Main bhi hoon tu bhi hai yahaan
Kho gaye hum kahan
Rangon sa ye jahan…
Listen to this beauty and revel in the melody if you haven’t already. Adios for now.
