It was friday night. I sat on the revolving chair looking at clock dejected and waiting for it to complete 8.30. Fifty minutes more. I'm not much into the office meetings which are not technical at all. But, the situations made me to involve in 'em.
Out of the blue, my mobile started vibrating and flashing my uncle's name. I didn't lift for the first time. I lifted when it vibrated again for third time thinking it was an urgent one. "We are going to a nearby waterfalls around 100 kms with family on bikes and you are coming", he said and drop as if my opinion doesn't matter anymore to him. On bikes made me tempted and I agreed.
Next day morning, I looked at the same clock but this time with excitement. The time was 6. It was full foggy morning. I asked my bike ,"boy ready for race?". I can hear his very-confident, excited yesssssss as a reply in the sound of raising accelerator. Within a no time, with more excitement I started riding my boy. Even though, it was around 10,000th km on my bike, I felt it was my first kilometer.
"The trees around made me to believe that I am not a human being anymore but a tree amongst 'em.
They are welcoming me to embrace as if I'm their child by their scattered leaves all along looks like a green carpet.
And the birds too welcoming me singing welcome-to-the-family in their own way.
They say, trees absorb CO2 and releases O2. I say, besides, O2, they releases H2 -
The sounds of the waterfall took me forward. My brain hears that sound and sends the imagination of it to mind. My eyes are watching that imagination.
After few fantasies, my eyes stunned looking at exquisite waterfalls that mesmerized my imagination.
I was jubilant looking at it
As a boyfriend looking at his girlfriend.
As a mother looking at her children.
As a Grandpa looking at his grandchildren.
As a devotee looking at God.
As a farmer looking at his crop.
I was reminded of Bruce Lee's words when the water is falling on my head - 'Empty your mind. Be formless, shapeless like water. Now you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle, it becomes the bottle. You put water in a teapot, it becomes the teapot. Now water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.'"
With the same empty mind, I returned home.
