As I stood and looked around a light breeze whispered by my ears. Been long since I last came up here. The attraction of this place is the perfect combination of the light and dark, the sound and silence and the position.
Lights: it’s wonderful to explain such a beautiful thing. The lights most of it which are far away yet to beautifully lit. All of them are normal house lights yet. The small shimmering lights are like the perfect hope in the dark night sky. The sky yes it’s not black at all it’s reddish . No it wasn’t evening it’s past midnight. Yet it’s reddish due to the wonderful streamlined lights and the smelting of the iron ore far away. Oh yes it’s a steel plant. The reflection of lights in the pond feels like the hill station .
Dark: well it’s night is supposed to be dark. It’s not bad it’s hope according to me. Even with the darkness of around us the lights shows us the possibilities around us. Don’t believe me look at Diwali. Again nature has her own style. The sky every night is lit with numerous lamps. From this place apart from monsoon most of the year they are clearly visible. Few multicolored few surprises me when they move. The man made fireflies are another addition to the dark. They have specific timing and at times I have ran to this place just to get a glimpse is them. Just not that I have tried to figure out what is the route and could they see from that height dark or light.
Sound: my mummer along with the sound of water splashing by the fishes and how can you neglect the insects and happy frogs. It’s like they are a perfect instrumental being played. The bass of the song is by a fan which is few kilometres away used to cool down the mine gases. The fan that I haven’t ever seen but only heard off. With the fan is a small moving subtle bass which are the tyres. The speeding vehicles on the G.T.Road and at times the screeching sound of the tyres. The only addition that has happened in the last few years is of a massive monster again can’t be seen. Though I have watched it only once and hence I am familiar with the roar it makes. The Arjan Singh air base is around 50 kms away. Every night I wish to dream of some practice action by them. Hence the monsters. All of these being heard from the place.
Silence: among all the chaos of light dark sound yet there is silence. This place provides me with the perfect setting for Me to be with myself. It’s as silent as you would be able to hear the inner you. That’s what we find right?
The right place with the perfect setting to be in peace with yourself . Silence is the utmost important thing that’s required after the tiresome day. This place is indeed magical.
I came here after a long long time and this place hasn’t changed at all.
The beauty of this place is unbelievable. The small tiny lights on those tiny houses and the perfect spot to spend sometime before you hit bed. I miss this place a lot , a place which is always close to my heart. My roof and the magic that engulfes it.
