The Silent Mornings….
Lot of people don’t prefer to travel by the early morning flights, it disrupts the schedule, imagine if the flight is at 4.00 am, one has to prepare for it the night before and one tends to miss the sleep for that night. But if you ask about ME, I prefer boarding the early morning flights. Yes, I face all the basic problems, not to mention morning sickness yet still I want to be out there.
I’m all for it and here’s why – I’m fascinated by the visuals of witnessing the rays of the Sun penetrating the fluffy clouds and then gently falling on Earth’s surface in the wee hours. The site makes for a striking canvas.
The clouds do look like gigantic softest possible cushions manifesting random designs. I remember, on my recent flight from New Delhi to Mumbai, we were about to land at Mumbai Airport around 5.30 am, the sky looked just magnificent, the best views come when the plane is not too close to the ground but at enough altitude to clearly see the surface. Interestingly, my three old boy loves the view too, and every single time, when he looks outside the window he tells me this – ‘I want to jump on the fluffy cloud like I do on the Trampoline and then fly up high’. It’s magical.
Today, I’m sharing some of the views here, apology for not being able to get the clearest pictures.
However, I also observed few other disturbing things, like restlessness, people just waiting to exit the plane, keeping their phones ready in their hands to switch on the signal asap! (And yes, they do.) I’m referring particularly to Indian flights and passengers, it’s mayhem as soon as the flight lands, it’s like even before the gates are opened everyone wants to rush.
I believe there’s something about enjoying the present especially when you have nothing else to do and rather than worrying about future, enjoy just being. Well, I know, everyone has a super busy life these days and most of the time we spend with our phones! But there still are things in Life, which one needs to feel, and there’s a beautiful Life without gadgets too, just try a phone detox sometimes.
Have a great week!!
