Solitary driving along
an Indian highway seems
quite an adventurous task.
A long drive can even be
pretty tiresome, boring and
to some,…a bit stressful.
But not if you have an eye
for a colourful sunset landscape!
Hit by the temptation, you pull up
by some small roadside tea shop.
With a kullhar (earthen tea-cup) in hand,
amidst relaxing sips, you start gazing afar,
at the enchanting western horizon.
Yellow, orange splashes of sun-rays
romancing the playful patches of clouds;
dark silhouettes of trees
adding to glamour, through a contrast
of light and shade; and of course the grey,
gradually…very softly, the sky would start
turning grey… greyer and …
finally, the greyest — black.
How entertaining…relaxing, driving solitary
along an Indian highway may turn out!
