There’s Something About Sunsets


There definitely is something about sunsets. Sure they look amazing from a beach and while setting and disappearing behind and in-between somewhere the mountains. But, I find them equally amazing from my terrace disappearing behind the high rises, from my car rear view window while negotiating madness that is Delhi traffic, actually from anywhere. All one needs to do is turn a little bit blind to the chaos around. You may think I am a little crazy but aren't we all. And if you are a sunset fan believe me the setting (pun intended) of the place does not matter.

Is it the way the sky changes many colors, from blue to the hues and all possible shades of reds and oranges with purple streaks? Is it the promise that every sunset holds, of giving way to sunrise and sunshine the next morning? is it a life lesson and a reaffirmation? is it pure joy of watching the canvas that God the Super Artist can create? Hmm I think it’s a bit of all of this and more!

Whatever it is, watching a sunset gives me a deep sense of calm, a feeling that no words can express. There are times I feel wow if I was to die this moment I wont have any regrets. These for me are those “real” moments when I am in touch with nature, in touch with my God and with my divinity. Poets have written reams and artists painted many canvases but nothing compares to “the moment” as you feel it.

  2. Beautifully written. Sunsets actually put the brakes on our frenzied lives and makes us sit back and soak in the immense vastness of the beauty that is around us. It is nature's way of putting things in perspective. :)

  7. Our first floor terrace entrance is on the western side. As soon as one opens the door in the evenings, you get the golden disc right on the face. I love to go up on the second floor and watch the dipping sun , above all the flats ..I love bidding goodbye and seek blessings for the next day.

    But after watching QSQT, ( dubte hue sooraj..etc), I feel a pang, but still love to watch it. :-)



    This is a lovely post.The setting sun over the skyline is so well captured.

    Thanks.

  12. A sunset has a tragic overtone too. It signifies the inevitable. A unit having come a full circle. The fading fireball surrounded by varied, complex strokes of life. It can pinch your heart; it can turn you poetic; it can bring an old song to your lips and; it can sadden your heart for no apparent reason. The only cheery part, to my mind, about a sunset is… daaru peene ka time ho gayela hai, bheedu!!
