Head high mountains of ARAVALI range, small but beautiful lake in the middle of the city – this could be a crisp description of the place where I grew up. I have so many beautiful memories of this place.
Good or bad, better or worst almost every emotion was first felt here. When I left my city for further studies, 9 years back, I never knew that I was so deeply connected to it. At that time it was just another city for me.
Now-a-days whenever I visit this city back, as soon as I enter, I get a warm feeling from the air, clouds, roads, places having ton of memories attached to almost every single corner of it. This breeze still feels the same, familiar and brings me back to the time when I was just a school going kid, when losing a match with friends was the biggest lost, every single evening.
Never realized that time flew so fast, just like a blink. But now I am at that stage, where fear of losing a match has changed into losing timeout on friends and family, grip on job, etc… The city always reminds me of old days and I always put it like “GOOD OLD DAYS”. But I think, the fears and insecurities that I have today are they real or I will have the same emotions on these too after a decade, when I stand on the same situation, laughing out loud and naming these also as “GOOD OLD DAYS”.
The answer came from inside.. Yes Yes Yes… No worries or fears or insecurities are permanent, this is just a phase where we value these things more than other great aspects of our life. Nothing is more important than living the moment and enjoying it to the full and maximum. The pleasure of living moments are the best ones.
I really feel wonderful that this homecoming made me realize that these things doesn’t matter, its all just in the head and nothing else. The head high mountains and the deep lake exist at same place with same gratitude. The sense of coexistence is the best one to live upon.
Its almost a decade now, this city have changed so much, expanded with no boundaries, but the mountains are still there like before holding it high with eye in eye with sky, lake has more clearer water and I see the better me in it now.
They say that correct learning starts from home or like I would say from “HOMETOWN”.
