Senses

How would life be..
Without
The pleasing fragnance of the earth
After the first downpour, the first shower.
A rose's sweet perfume...
And the scent of wild flowers.
The aroma of mummy's homemade delicious dishes
And all other pleasant odours all around.



The sight of
 Nature's numerous manifestations
The aesthetic beauty...the godly illusions and illustrations..
The river, the dark night, the twilight
The sunset over the lake
The view of the world heritage sites
The ancient and antique treasures of history
The varied cultures, traditions..the festivals
The pomp and show..the enjoyment
The glimpse of a thing of beauty
A painting, a flower..a miniature representation
Of His creation.........
Or just ...an emotion..an expression of love.

Hearken...
The music of Nature
The thunderstorm..the whirling,whistling wind.
The outburst of Nature's inlaid anger
The rhythmic flow of the river
The beat of the heart..
The breeze whistling through the trees..
The chirrupings..the tune…

I love palaces- beautiful palaces; old sprawling traditional buildings; old monuments and castles; those that speak of the bygone days. They have an essence of ancience and antiquity in their walls, in the art and artistries in their buildings; in the architectures and tapestries that they are adorned with. They are a witness to a history. They make a mark on the sands of time. I feel as if I am a part of their surroundings. I feel a sense of belonging and strong affinity for these places. They awe me, mesmerize me, intrigue me, mystify and even soothe me. These ancient towers are an ambassador of dignity, elegance, beauty, loyalty, and tradition. They speak of a whole dynasty, its success, achievements and its failings; its influence on eternity; its principles and ideologies and its inevitable end.




Even old monasteries, forts, churches, tombs, and bungalows, attracts me, especially those long corridors and spacious courtyards. Dan Brown’s ‘The Da Vinci Code’ and ‘Angels and Demons’ …
