A tryst with nature can rejuvenate you
A unique expression of how nature can revitalize you.
Manav who was on his way back to his hometown in general compartment of the train was sad and depressed. He sat by the train window with a gloomy mood, looking out as the train started.
Soon the lush green fields were passing by and he saw farmers and his family happily plowing the fields.
Rumbling sound of the train seemed like a rhythmic music to his ears and suddenly that music became louder. Manav saw train slowly crossing a river bridge. River water beneath was sparkling with dry golden sand areas in between which seemed liked an island and looked beautiful
As Manav closed his eyes in relaxation resting his head against the window rods he felt water sprinkling on his face like a jet spray. As he opened his eyes he noticed that it was raining and rain droplets were gently hitting his face as the train was moving. He did not bother to close the window but instead allowed the raindrops to drench his face and cool him.
The train soon found itself carving its way between the hills and Manav's eye got a real treat when it viewed tiny waterfalls gushing down the hills through the rocks. It gave him a relaxing and rejuvenating feeling.
He soon spotted minute buildings and greenery visible on the ground level while the train moving on a hilly terrain.
As the train moved he felt cool breeze brushing past his face and it made him close his eyes again. He then felt some warmth over his eyelids which made him open the eyes. He saw the evening sun partially hiding behind the distant hill shedding its orangish light on his face giving a pleasant feeling.
Sun had set and darkness now prevailed. Manav noticed many lights shining like tiny diamonds far away and he knew that station was approaching. Collection of tiny lights, when seen from a distance, seemed like a necklace.
Soon his hypnosis with nature broke as train jerked to stop and with the familiar voice of Chai! Chai!. He realized that his station had arrived. He alighted and moved towards his home. After this mesmerizing experience with nature in three hours of the journey, he now felt more relaxed, energetic and happy.
Sometimes finding time to unwind with nature makes us forget our stress and worries. It refuels our mind to continue our life journey more energetically.
