A thing of beauty is a joy forever

If I think of the weather, the last two weeks have been really surprising and confusing. Whether to take the blanket or a sheet, whether to switch on the fan or not….such is the weather. It’s like experiencing autumn during spring.

Most of us are not complaining because of the perfect photo op this weather has provided us with. Whether it is the bare trees and the leaves that they have shed or the clouds that are playing a constant hide and seek. All these are examples of the vivid beauty of nature. It is the time of the year to bring out the photographer or even the phoneographer in you. So just stop by and enjoy nature’s beauty.

Gaze at the sky, the tree and the fallen leaf, spare a while away from the trials and all shall be forgotten grief.

Not only is this time a visual treat, but also proves to be a treat for the taste buds. Even though I had been appearing for competitive exams for most part of the month that has gone by, there was no time when food was out of mind and out of sight. The perfect weather to enjoy piping hot ‘jalebis’ (pretzels) under dark cloudy skies. The lightest of drizzle making it even more enjoyable. I celebrated the end of my exams with these jalebis made from pure desi ghee. I can vouch for their pure ‘desipan’.  I can happily say that I enjoyed this weather to the best possible I could. This was a wonderful time to visit home and spend time in The City Beautiful. The India Pakistan encounter at Dharamsala would have just been an icing on the cake.

Reminiscing about the last few days, I can’t stop myself from adding these few lines by John Keats:

“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever;
Its loveliness increases, it will never
pass into nothingness……….”
