Of sunrises…

Sunrise from our windowSunrise from our window

The sun now rises around 7:15-7:20 in the morning. I get up around the same time. We now meet daily over tea. It’s a pity that the real sunrise happens beyond those buildings and cranes. Still, it’s breathtakingly beautiful on the days when the sky is clear or partly-cloudy. It’s much harder, though not impossible, to get a remarkable sunrise on an overcast day.

I was quite nostalgic today for some reason. Life has changed so much in last few years that I sometimes wonder if the person merrily clicking the sunrise from the roof of the Government guest house in Hampi was the same person as me.
