Night again now..It rained in Bangalore while it was still evening..Soft, caressing wind brought in some twigs & the smallest of  leaves flying in my workspace and it felt welcoming, to be here. A summer friday on the calender, clouds in the sky and drizzle on the streets..Smiling, content and elated faces making their way through, to meet others – to smile, to laugh, to chat, to hold hands, to walk, to share an evening, to be a part of each other..even if for some it meant for just this little while..At moments such as these when anticipations are high and expectations low, one can smell roses in the air..Or if  it has rained, like it did today, the air smells of earth..

I walk to the same bus stop on my way. I glance at those expectant radiant faces, waiting, with impatience, who have someone to go to..I wait with them..Just another speck in the universe, I get in the bus and get down at my stop..I walk..More faces..more smiles…more laughs..I walk with them, yet away from them..When its time to switch off the lights,I switch off the lights & look out the window..Its dark..Alluringly and enchantingly dark..I think of those smiling, laughing faces, I smile..Its night again now for some more time.. Night again..

In transition..

The monotony of the routine that marks the beginning of the day took over the night’s sleepy peace. Morning sun shone bright and hot from the glass panes out the window making shadows fall randomly and wantonly. Unrecognizable voices filled in the silence of the cosy confines out in the corridors of the apartments. Mornings had almost always been like this.  Except while growing up. That was the time when birds chirped and there were no corridors. Nor were the occasional bouts of absolute uncertainty an enigma like they now seemed to. Uncertainty was exciting, stimulating, liberating. It led the mind to wander off from the safe confines of reason and explore the realms beyond the trivialities. Trivialities, which were guarded tenets, intended to hold back the free spirit. Disciplining the minds seemed so unlike liberation. With the loss of growing days, maturity robbed these uncertainties and reason and discipline took over. Mornings are now monotonous affairs with clocks and routines in repetition. Sun shines today, like it always used to.  Some things change, some don’t. A shadow of our past still lingers on in the present. We smile, we move on..
