A Date With Myself



A quiet evening at home.

It's getting harder and harder to find solitude these days. Earlier, one could take a walk in the countryside, enjoy being one with the nature, but now, the countryside is getting smaller and smaller as the concrete world gets bigger and bigger.

I do enjoy the city and its energy, but at times I feel claustrophobic..as if the humanity is pressing in on me. The need to indulge in and enjoy the fullness of my own presence, the luxury of being with my own thoughts overwhelms me..and today was one such day.

Just me, my solitude and the thumri "Yaad piya ki aaye...ye dukh saha na jaye..haye ram".

The soulfulness of this thumri touches the most inner chords of my soul and gives me a feeling of eternal solace.
