Oh for those magic hours!

A bright and sunny day. The sky is spotlessly blue. The mood of the nature changes overnight! Yesterday, sky looked like a huge filter as the pure water was dripping from the sky all through the day. Since the “sit at home” was ordered by the ‘chief’, I can’t say whether it continued to rain during the night as well. Anyway, the items blocked by this huge filter were, of course, the rays of the sun!

Not that I am a blind supporter of the sun, for I believed in the principle, “rain while you rain and shine while you shine”.

All that I expect from the sun and the rain is a sort of give and take approach. In short, on a rainy day, let the sun appear for a couple of hours so that His fans won’t miss those magic hours during the sunrise and the sunset!

Author: P U Krishnan

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.

One Commnet on “Oh for those magic hours!

  1. The shining sun surely is a welcome change in a place like Ooty that invariables suffers the onslaught of merciless sprinkles that seem to last forever!

    I like the way in which you described the ‘Chief’ and am hoping that the ‘Chief’ doesn’t read that part! Home Ministers, I’ve learnt, are not ones to be taken upon, given their capacity to overwhelm us poor souls! 🙂 🙂 🙂
