I always love the transitioning phase of seasons. It is a marvel rather. And I love the transition specially at this time of the year when nights get starry and cold and long……….and then onset of winters always give that ‘thoda aur’ time to cuddle in comfy blankets and ‘thoda aur’ time to get up lazily and still snuggle in the warmth of bed and look outside the window just to see a dainty streak of light appearing across the horizon. And what just gives me sheer innocent delight is sipping from a hot glass of simmering filter coffee, while still nestled inside the warmth of shawls and scarves and blowing the mist out on each breath. That feeling when you are alone and still not lonely is something we all need at least once a day.
And as days get shorter, evenings crisply turn dark on 6. Roads, trees, homes and parks are illuminated with the beautiful electric lighting’s that make a feast for the eyes. As the moon wanes, the lights of the crackers illuminate the sky with their deafening sounds. Traditional diyas and lanterns when lit, make the entire atmosphere so rich and comforting. It is time to celebrate. It is time to be merry. It is time to make sure that this prosperity and happiness is sustained.
