I felt Alive in a Sleepy Town!

March 15, 2010 at 3:58 pm 11 comments

I always used to think why is the phrase ‘sleepy’ associated with small towns! Finally have got my answer; these small towns like the one I came back from are so peaceful, quiet and practically ‘dead’ after 7 in the evening!

Breeze that gushes in your room through multiple windows and wide doors has a sweet fragrance in it. I had long forgotten the difference between waking-up and dragging myself out of the bed and only a stay in a ‘sleepy town’ could remind me about it. I was visiting my folks last weekend and it was as good as holiday in the hills, maybe better in a way because I had NOTHING to do but to stay indoors or laze in the lawn. No distractions, no worries about deadlines, no non-stop buzzing of the mobile.

By the way when was the last time you experienced any of these in ‘big cities’ where we live:

Fresh, chilly and dust free breeze in your room?
Greenery all around?
Flowers blooming in garden and not just the public park?
Heard birds chirping especially koel in the mango trees!
Drove around with windows of the car rolled down?

I can feel Spring is in the air, the sky is clear and stars have a glitter!

So till my next, enjoy the bloom 🙂

      Home sweet Home, Mayur. 🙂

      Ambala about 200 kms from Delhi and 45 kms short of Chandigarh.

    You are talking about Ambala I believe. A break is always a good thing, glad to know you are feeling rejuvenated. 🙂 Nice bloom of Bougainvilleas and Pansies. Reminded me of the house I grew up in.

    P.S. Like Winter is your favourite time of the year, Spring and Autumn are mine.

    Seriously, every now and then it really helps to escape to some place where no one can get to you!

    You enumerated the following towards the end of your post:
    Fresh, chilly and dust free breeze in your room?
    Greenery all around?
    Flowers blooming in garden and not just the public park?
    Heard birds chirping especially koel in the mango trees!
    Drove around with windows of the car rolled down?
    Those not lucky enough to have family/relatives in small towns take off to hill stations to enjoy all these.
    I remember experiencing all of the above during my last visit to Mahableshwar, a lovely hill station near Bombay.
