Few days back I drove past this thick forest, span over miles along the highway. The woods were soft yet dry. That illuminating green stretch loudly announced 'The Nature is too strong to be tamed by mankind'. The orange soil of Chota Nagpur plateau formed a sharp contrast to the leafs, fallen over the floor. Summer wind blew gently and made its way through the snapping branches and rustling leaves. How unknowingly it made a beautiful melody of Psithurism ! The sunshine streaked through the forest and made Kaleidoscopic pattern of light and shadow.
It was a dreamy vista. Within the grasp yet untouchable, prominent yet mysterious. I felt I had been to this place before. Long before. I knew this smell, I have heard this sound, I have seen this random distribution of light and shadow before.
Standing by the highway, overlooking the dreamy forest, I sensed whenever I'm being surrounded by beauty of nature, I can find an invisible part of mine already belongs to that place. That unknown part is nothing but a small share of beauty we possess inside us. A part that makes us believe that we can fight the grudge, the lack of empathy, the anger, the greed with this shield of beauty. No matter how many curveballs life throws at us, we can fight and survive and rise above all. Just like this nature, our wild inner beauty is too strong to be tamed, too untouched to be destroyed. A part of nature always lies deep within us. All we need is to connect that part.
