It was 10 in the night when I and my hubs started from my mom’s place to head back to our home. We had to hide below an umbrella to reach our car. Bangalore this day was extraordinarily beautiful, it was drizzling and cloudy all day long. How weird the life is, this beautiful weather which we were blessed upon here was due to the Cyclone which silently crawled and which was now in dangerous form somewhere else.
Sometimes life suddenly turns beautiful, I had never imagined a 10 mins drive from my mom’s home to my home will turn out to be an hour’s ride and would be so memorable. Thanks to the string of things which made that night a blessing.
I should be really thanking my little chariot for all the best things that happened. As hubs started the car, stereo which wasn’t switched off earlier, randomly picked up the most favorite song of ours to set the stage on. We started singing along the tunes of Savage garden
...I love you more with every breath truly madly deeply do..
Who cares for the notes and tones we could just not hold back from singing load. Inside this chariot of us, seeing the beautiful rain showering bright golden around the high street light seemed to be best thing I could have ever seen.
As this song of 4 min ended, we were in no mood to change so the song played again and when we had reached our garage my hubs all of a sudden decided to pull back the car. Before my curious eyes popped out hubs told that he could just not call this a night and then there we were hitting the road again for a beautiful long drive on the streets of Bangalore.
As if writing on the windows of the car where the fog constantly formed, singing the melodious songs of love, enjoying the warmth inside the car, and a drive of an hour and half to the outskirts was just not enough we found a nice tea stall which catered to 24X7 workers and yes how can we resists the inviting fragrance of tea? There we were only two of us giggling and gulping the warm tea.
Trust me I can’t remember the various reasons we had that night to laugh, to hug and fly in our imaginations, ah! How I wish I could seize the sparkle of that adventure in our eyes and I pinched myself to make sure that all these were not just one of my fantasies.
As one corner of the world suffered due to the terrible act of Mother Nature, I was wondering at the irony that there may be many like us who were blessed by her love at the same time. How some would hate that night so much so that they just want it to be over and how I would want to seize it forever!
A long drive on a drizzling night was so much memorable that I am still drenched in it.
