Story of a lost journalist

Night time. Well ok evening rather. Say 7-ish. It’s a calmer street, but if you walk a little you will end up in the buzz of the city. I plug music on ears. I walk. I find this new song ‘Sham Dale’. I slow down. And I keep walking. I find a new favorite road to walk. Well I have walked it for months now. But today I am alone and for the first time, I appreciate the ideal place it is in. You see it is the road from the calm street to the busy one.

I walk slow. I close my eyes in between. I open it again to watch the sky. It’s dark enough. People can’t see what you are upto but then there is enough light to see where you are going.

And on the side, there are small grills. You can touch them as you walk.

But let me tell you the magic. On my ears, there is music. And on my eyes are the sky and the trees and the world around me. It was beautiful. Don’t ask me why. But it was beautiful. I walked slow, I walked fast, I stopped at a place and stood there a bit. You see this was life. Life was out here. You had to live it. It was not just for going to places and then after doing your business, going back home. There was so much more… to take in. To feel. To merge with…

I don’t know how long I walked. But I realized I did circles when friends who said adieu saw me pass the way again a lot later. I loved it. Life was always offering you things, you just have to see it and take it. If you choose not to see, not to accept, you don’t have any idea what you are losing. So step out into the world, into nature, into life… and live it.
