Standing by the window pane I can see the nature’s beauty outside, raindrops falling freely on the ground, few drops hitting the pane.
How freely, independently, lavishly, free from any pains & trouble it just remains on the pane for a while then slides down.
It reaches and meets rest of the companions, all joining together in unison, others following suit, and flowing together to meet the ones they are destined to meet.
Trudging ahead on their final journey .A short life ,but how beautifully lived ,going through each phase- birth, growth, journey, adventure and finally nirvana.
I get lost watching these raindrops and start comparing my life to them.How much have things changed for me!!.
As the rain drops are sliding on the window pane my mom would be preparing dinner for dad and sis.My friends would be watching their favorite TV soaps, people would be busy driving home to meet their loved ones, students must be cramming & revising the chapters for the exams next day, kids going in bed after a hard day at school and then in park shouting and shrieking at top of their voice justifying the true glory of a free bird; shutters of the shops pulled down for closure, all the birds returning back to their nests to feed their chicks,……
How fast the time flies, and how fast things change, It surprises me at times.
So much has changed, lost so much and gained so little. Many friends & cousins got engaged, married, had kids; birthdays & anniversaries passed and I could wish them only on phone.
I just miss that touch and kiss on the cheeks of 2 yr old. Couldn’t celebrate holi, diwali, new year, Christmas with family & friends.
The only connection between us –telephone. Just wondering how advanced we have become, forced to stay away from near and dear ones and justify all this by saying” all this is because I love you, I am doing it for you more than for myself”
But is it really so?
Is it really justified what I am doing?
Is the gain worth the loss?
I may never get any satisfactory answer for these questions but Yes, one thing is for sure, somewhere I am missing the real purpose of life.
~ All standing and staring through the window pane of a skyscraper, in concrete jungle miles away from my loved ones.
