As usual, started my day thanking God for this beautiful life! Got ready, took my bag and stepped out of my home for a college lecture. This beautiful 15mins journey to college started with a positive thought “Today is going to be a good day”. Enjoying the early morning walk with a packet of Marie Gold biscuit in my hand! Loving the morning fresh air with every step I take and every biscuit I chew. Watching the sun shining bright, Listening the birds singing in their own rhythm, Looking at traffic signal lights and Looking at people's eyes who were passing by from my side, trying to find what they are up to and trying to read their mind. Yes, I was in a trance.
With every step I take and the biscuit I chew, there was something beautiful happening and passing by. I realized that this day is not as usual. I saw three strangers enjoying the early morning newspaper at a Chai Tapri (a tea-stall) and having fun. The city cleaners were doing their job right by cleaning the city and making it beautiful. The two young boys maybe more than 20years age holding their fingers and walking by the road! Some people were already into the start of their day job while some were on their way.
My 15mins journey to college was about to end. I kept the remaining biscuits in my bag and took out an ID card and kept in my pocket. Then from a distance, I saw two homeless kids, a boy and a girl holding each other’s hand running by the footpath and enjoying the beautiful morning. Just when I reached the college lane, I saw a friend from a distance coming through me being busy on cell phone. He was actually walking back home. He also saw me and just when I reached till him, he said “I was trying to call you to inform you that the lecture is cancelled and there will be no lecture today”. Listening this I slowly whispered ‘Oh fu*k’, but at the same time I was happy about it. But my friend wasn’t that happy, he was like “the teacher should inform us a day before about this”. I said in return “Hey chill, its okay! Bas samajle ke early morning walk ho gayi” (Just think that you did the early morning walk, that’s all!).
Another friend came by. Standing on a road side we talked like for almost an hour. We chit-chatted about life, the final semester Bsc IT Project and much such stuff! I was happy that the lecture got cancelled; because of it we were talking like aliens on a road side. While talking, I saw a beautiful moment happening at my right side. The man was giving bread to the stray dog as if the dog is his son. I smiled looking at this moment. I felt the love around me.
After standing and chit-chatting for almost 1hour we left doing handshake and saying bye to each other; taking three different directions as 3 of us had different road to take. I started my journey again but this time back home. The roads started filling up with vehicles and people. Then after walking some steps, I saw a woman on a bus-stop waiting for a bus and there was a stray dog right beside her. When I reached closer to her, I saw she was actually moving her right hand with care on a dog’s back, like as if the dog is her baby. The love was all around me this morning. Next I saw a crow drinking the water from a bowl on the first floor of a building where the bowl was placed outside the window filled with water maybe for all these beautiful birds. Watching this, my heart filled with love. Mix emotions started running inside me.
The last thing which I saw is another special moment. I literally had tears in my eyes this time. I saw my dad walking on his way to office. The fact that my eyes got filled with beautiful water because it is his hard work that inspires me every day! Sometimes I wish I could be as hard-working as him. I talked to myself, “This is the kind of Father I hope to be someday”. The hard work my dad does for the entire family is more than just an inspiration. I reached till him and had a small chat and then left saying bye. I somehow managed my best to control my eyes filled with water. But I think dad readed my eyes.
Today was for the first time in life, I realised this seriously that time once gone can never come back. I wish I could have carried a Camera along with me so that I could have captured all these beautiful morning moments and shared with you all. But never mind, I have shared this all writing a complete blog on it. As I believe that the best photographs/moments you carry are in your eyes. This is how my day was already made and my morning was filled with full of love.
