When this beautiful planet, covers its belongings including us humans with a blanket having dark shades of grey and a bluish light radiating from it … when the sun slides down from east to west while playing hide & seek with us, when the birds start singing with the rhythm of silence of the night, when that part of world where few people like me live turned off that light of that dancing sun and lights up that bed lamp in form of a moon and plays tunes with wind that touches me here and there… and tells a story in my ears while entering my room through that half-open window glass. I realize it’s the time I can meet someone whom I can never meet in those crowded streets, in that brightness of day light.
Yes it’s the night I am talking about… when tired bodies of us humans rest in peace and allows our mind to hibernate for a while. It’s the time when majority of us prefers to close our eyes… and to dream, kiss and make love in that darkness which our close eyes surrounds us with.
It’s only then I open the other half of my window to let that cool breeze bring all the freshness inside my room with it. It’s only then I allow my soul to dance with that tune of silence … to sing with those birds, those frogs without even knowing the lyrics. It’s only then I try to fall in love with that empty street that lies alone in front of my eyes; it’s only then I try to fall in love with the coldness of that dew drop dissolving in my hand and making it wet. It’s when I fall in love with everything that nature offers us and I believe all of them have souls inside them… which are untouchable, unspeakable.
It’s only time, when I find “myself” in me. It is the time I ask that myself in me, “Who am I really? Am I that man with arrogance, anger just like the whole world sees in me or am I that caring, nice, honest person whom I see in me!!” “Do I need to make others happy or do I need to make myself happy?”
Every night I meet “myself” in that darkness of night, far away from that crowd, which I have to be part of every morning when the Sun again returns to my place from yours and again takes away the “myself” away from “me”.
The next day when the sun moves dancing over my head… I smile looking at the sky and realize that if ”myself” could not stay with me all the time … then its’ that “I” who have to walk this journey called life all alone.
I again smile looking at that innocent little girl walking with her mother holding her hands and start walking towards my destination. I turn my face to offer that smile to an old man crossing the road, to a traffic police busy with his job, to a beautiful girl whom I have just seen for the first time now and can be my life partner or may be not….
“I” and that “Smile” on my face walk until again that darkness of night, that silence of street, that moonlight, that empty field, that sky filled with stars again allow me to meet “myself” and ask all those question which I’ve sought answers since past so many years of my life.
Take care -
Have that “I” in you ever met that “myself” in you? If yes, then what were the question you’ve asked him/her?
