I finally made up my mind to go to the terrace tonight. I’ve always wanted to spend some time alone there ever since we have shifted to our new G+4 apartments. I can’t say the view from the terrace is splendid, but good enough to catch a glimpse of the city and perfect for sky-watching!

I’ve wanted to go there alone but it was avoided because of just one reason – LAZINESS!
So I somehow broke the barriers today and triumphantly walked into the terrace! A sense of accomplishment crept through me ( All for climbing up to the terrace!)

The night was calm, the sky was pretty clear, star-studded and of-course the waxing moon… PERFECT ! I thought.

I searched for a spot and the parapet wall caught my attention. I sat there for a moment and feeling a bit uncomfortable, laid down (its quite safe)
‘ Hmmmm...Very nice!’ I heaved a sigh of relief and my lips curved into a smile.
I started watching the sky… It was lovely with all those sparkling stars… So beautiful!
I gazed on either side. I could find towers of various shapes and sizes dotting the sky-line.
But even the tallest of them couldn’t reach the sky!!

Nothing is as great as God’s creation. I thought. It feels so good to spend some time to admire nature, forgetting all the usual stuff like college, classes, assignments, TV, computer etc etc... Life has become very mechanical indeed! Except for moments like these…
The stars again…twinkling bright…and these constellations… How did God create…Wait!! I felt some vibration in my body!

I was lost in another world then I realized it was the vibration from my mobile phone…
I took it in my hand, the screen displayed: “ 1 message received “
I opened it. It was my friend :
” Hey remember the show we missed last Saturday? They are showing the re-telecast at 9:30pm ! “
I checked the time, it was 9:27 pm.
I jumped down from the parapet and started racing down the stairs, while my fingers were busily engaged in replying to the message:
“Hey thanks a lot! I would’ve missed it!”

Well… thus ends my “Date with Nature” !!
