One lazy morning, I wake up with this wonderful feeling you sometimes get when you have nothing much to do for the day. Precious indeed as it comes once in a way. I decided this was just the day to take some time out to ‘smell the fragrance of the roses’ and connect with the elements.
So I attempted this. With a cuppa chai and my favourite masal vada in my hand I sat down …well to smell the fragrance of the flowers indeed!! It took me a full ten minutes to let the elements sink into me. And then, it got me into a state of trance..…Wow! Nope Whew! Indeed.
I realized IT was all over the place. ‘It’ was in the air, was in the sounds I was listening to……even extended to the masal vada I was holding and the coloured liquid I was drinking. ‘It’ was omnipresent, extending its flavour everywhere. It was possessing me. The more it got to me, the more I wanted to get away………..SCREAMING !
For ‘It’ was the Pollution that was eating into me, in the air I was breathing, the noises I was listening, even the masal vada was stuffed with onions coated with pesticides ! Aaaaah! The sink with the elements stung me with the stink of ‘It’s existence!
