Is this heaven?

Ever felt rain on ur face and sunshine too at the same time? For one fraction of second your whole body shivers and then…u smile. Hmmm… I don’t know what heaven is, but maybe it feels like this. Well I was thinking of my summer trip to Gangtok. It was awesome. As the bus was moving through the winding mountain roads, I swear it was one of my best trysts with nature. Ya, I m a nature lover and the mountains tops my list. So as I was saying, it started raining lightly though it was sunny. (I loovve the “sun n rain” combo pack.) You see I had the advantage of occupying the entire last seat of the bus (by the way, there were hardly 20 people in it!!).So I opened the windows there, at the expense of getting disapproving looks from the passengers. But who cares??? That was my moment and I didn’t let it go. And I had my trip to heaven. The scenery was outrageously beautiful. I mean you can see river Teesta below flowing madly, the tall dark green pines passing by and my oh my smell of rain on dry earth!! Adding flavors to it, the sun was just peeking through the clouds …this whole conspiracy seemed straight out of the Wordsworths or the Robert Frosts. Incidentally at that moment my Discman was playing Shania Twain’s “C’est la vie”. Slightly soaked in rain and humming one of my favorites, I felt detached. No boredom, no tensions of “how to survive the remaining semesters at VIT”, I was almost flying. (remember the Krackjack ad!!) Suddenly I was smiling by myself. (Yeah the passengers gave me a “she’s a mental” look.)Now thinking about it, I remember these lines by Robert Frost:

“These woods are lovely,
Dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep.


And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”

Promises???...... Nah! Not exactly, rather compulsion. Like completing my “donkey load” of pending lab work which I need to complete tonight before I get thrown out of the lab tomorrow (again?!?!). Ah! Reality hits real hard. Now back to work….. (With loads of grumblin and cussin…)

wish i was there, well mountains is the closest thing to nature...i mean u have scenic beauty but nothing in its raw form, the only other thing which beats that is probably a volcano, well i never read either of the names, but incidentally read that poem, i guess i had it in my school syllabi
and the labs thing, yeah everyone has that...and yeah reality does hit hard, real hard...

hey i though u were from assam.... :( i mean native place...doesnt really matter though, anyways will explain u later why the best option to talk to a girl u dont know and who has a fairly decent iq is to flirt...so it was just something i said...well forget that...anyways who said anything about it being wrong that girls listen to iron maiden or korn, it is my pleasure to talk to a girl who listens to that stuff....i mean girls r into all the techno or trans bullshit.. or remix crap...well u dont have ppl (read girls) who listen to korn...i mean its less....and ya i missed it tooo....and the worst thing is i was in b'lore till 11th this month... :( :(
