A short drive to the never ending world

"Why don't we have a cup of tea?" It's from my friend who is guiding me through out the journey. I started searching for a roadside tea shop, where there is no need to wait, no heavy metal songs, no air conditioned room, no milk powder. I prefer to enjoy tea with the music of nature and the cool breeze.

"I miss the monsoon here, missing the real spirit of the drive, don't you feel so?". Looking at the vast empty sky, with a deep breath.

"Why don't you drive further up? You might be able to catch some clouds there". I took my friend's word and decided to climb 20 more hair pins.

Sun is on its way to take rest and giving way to moon. My eyes are filled with surprise. The clouds are getting darker and darker. Wind starts howling. I want to enjoy each bit of this nature and stopped my vehicle under a tree. It is the peak of the mountain,there is no way to go further up.

I started recollecting my drive to reach the heights and sharing with my friend. " The Easiest way with no hurdle in between and enjoyed each bit of it!!! You are with me all the way and I never felt boredom till today."

"You are my true friend" ; Closing my eyes and relaxing.

A raindrop wakes me up from the sleep. For a minute I forget where I am. Being lulled by the beauty of the nature, my mind is dancing along with the wind and drizzling rain.

All of a sudden I realized that I am alone. Where is my friend? I searched everywhere. I have no clue where to go. " My Friend, you guided me all these days. Where have you gone, leaving me alone?"

I became restless. I hear the sigh of the wind in the branches... For a moment I feel I am flying, But do not know where I am heading to, being so light and thin like a feather.

I see a bright light in front of me but far away, down the valley. I am breathless, It is turning to my friend's face with the usual naughty smile. "I guided you all the way in your life. Now it is your turn to show the right path to others". He vanishes!!!

Never realized the great power with me through out the journey. A smile on my face like a calm wind...
