RAINBOW CLICKED AT 32000 FEET – IN A RANDOM CLICK

I usually don’t take snapshots while in a flight but the view today compelled me to react with my cellphone camera spontaneously. Yes, it was not the first time that I had witnesses a rainbow while in a flight. But somehow, I had not done it before today.

The flight was at 32,000 feet, en route to Delhi from Varanasi. It was hot and humid in Varanasi but raining in Delhi since this morning – so as usual – the Monsoon vagaries continue.

Mid-way to the journey, Monsoon’s playfulness suddenly pulled my attention when the aircraft’s pilot was announcing specifications on how the flight was doing. My eyes, staring out of the window, saw this amazing arch, overarching the whole panorama in its range.

And I don’t know how, but my right hand, on its own, slipped to my trouser’s pocket to pick cellphone to click the view. Yes, I could not do it when it was fully young in the range of my eyesight as unlocking the handset and capturing the frame took some time. But, even if I could not capture the full rainbow arch, the shots that I captured were enough to give me thoughts to write on an image created by it.

MANIKARNIKA GHAT, WHERE THE LINE BETWEEN LIFE AND DEATH BLURS

THE DAYSPRING AT THE GANGA

Varanasi is because the Ganga is.

The Ganga ghats in Varanasi are the lively ecosystems of human living where life is always in motion, full of vibrant shades defining the every moment of day in its inhabitant’s lives.

A morning with the Ganga is the quality time worth living every day and a memory worth revisiting every day.

Sharing the moments of a morning with the Mother River when a day steps from the slowing rhythm of the night to the energized urge of the daybreak to evolve into a fully blossomed morning – soft, caring and motivating – is an experience of the lifetime.

It is a story that can be told and retold every day. It is a story that remains forever young, with Mother Ganga, with the Ganga ghats, with its mysticism, with its spirituality, with its flow of being Banarasi, with people from every walk of life and with people who are an inseparable part of this ecosystem.

And it is equally riveting to capture the moments.

Come, and be enchanted.
