If it was Monday morning blues with which I started the previous week, it has been a great beginning today. Today being Bhogi, the whole city was engulfed in smoke, though it wasn’t as bad as how it used to be a few years back.
As I stepped out of my house to catch the bus, I saw the sun appearing like a golden-orange ball peeping through the branches of the tall thoongu moonji maram. It made me go wow! 🙂 As I got into the bus, I saw that it wasn’t even half-full. The disadvantage of being a person whose home is at Chennai itself is that when most of them from other places take leave and go home on a long weekend, you end up being one of the few persons working. Anyway no complaints since the advantages outnumber the disadvantage by a very great margin. 😉 Sitting comfortably without having to squeeze in between two persons, the journey had me admiring the beautiful sun throughout. Just as the bus was passing over the flyover in Adyar, I saw the clouds passing over the sun – for a few minutes, the clouds hid the sun and slowly the sun started peeping out from under the clouds till it was fully visible. It presented a beautiful sight. 🙂 Nice weather, beautiful sunrise! How I wish all Mondays had great beginnings like this one!
