The Queen of Hills- Day 2


5:30 a.m., the frost settled on the glass of my window, with a sprinkle of dotted lights peeping through it, shimla was still asleep. I , after offering my prayers sat at the corner of the bed , gazing at the world outside, waiting for the sun to rise from its long slumber..I was not the only one gripping each moment with patience, my royal friends, the huge mountains were waiting aswell. As both of us were indulged in the same activity, I started a conversation with the evergreen royalty.



I got to know that they had been here for a long time, holding on to the innumerable abodes of humanity. Time passed but they stood still. When I asked them what made them do that though innumerable centuries had passed, they said that its the love of humanity. Love is smeared on the face of nature and seeps down to its heart, its we who exploit it without realising that the depletion of nature, is but the ruin of selfless devotion that humanity has experienced over time immemorial.


There's a lesson thats well preserved in every corner of its beauty, the small paths made by man on the gigantic face of the mountains made me realise that however difficult life may be, we can always carve out a path and make our way. Its just determination and will that makes the task easy. With the enlightened conversation time passed and the sun made its way towards the sky, spreading its wings to brighten up the world, light fluttered its wings and wiped away the fog and dew left behind by the beautiful night.




Day 2 had a lot more in store...it had just begun...

Boy, 5:30 am is very early for me, use to do it, but my old body can not rise early. I just love the way you explain things, the pictures are so pretty. I have never seen a mountain, only on TV, you are very fortunate, hope you are having a nice week.

A New Beginning, That was a lovely description of nature. And yes, we do need to feel ashamed of ourselves, for trying to exploit instead of preserve the beauty that just might cease to exist if we go on like this.
