Taking a long unplanned vacation to home, I realized the importance of peace in the midst of a stressful mundane routine life. Even at a temperature of 95 deg F, under the canopy of scorching rays, I was able to shed the skin of sophisticated materialistic life and relive the rawness of my roots to home. I could see the 5-year-old Me running in the garden and hiding behind thick trunks of the coconut trees. I smiled at the 7-year- old me climbing the mango trees of my garden and relishing the delicious almost ripe mangoes. I empathized with the 11-year-old me for sacrificing the morning beloved sleep in order to complete the homework at the last minute before rushing to school. I became nostalgic at the 16-year-old me who stepped out of the cocoon of home to realize his dreams. And now here I am back again, the 27-year-old-me with a heart full of dreams turned into reality yet a soul filled with a thirst to relive the childhood days.
Just as I was sitting in my bed, looking out of the window, towards the garden, with all those nostalgias, I saw the sky getting darker, accompanied by thunder. Soon the drops of rain fell on the torrid mud, generating a whiff of the freshness of grasses and the fragrance of soil all around me. The heavy rain soon formed a little puddle amid the greenery and I like a small kid was drawn towards it. Rummaging through the table, I found few rough papers and the next second I found myself making some paper boats. Yeah! the 90s kid was back again… with a candid heart…with no shackles of thoughts and stress…with ingenuous eyes…with no darkness of depression…as only a little kid running towards the pool of rainwater, holding his paper boats…
