It was a mid-Autumn Tuesday afternoon; we were heading back to Karachi from Hyderabad after celebrating Eid with my grandparents and cousins. We drove through the jammed streets & a few miles later reached the elongated road which led us to the final leg of our journey.
I sat beside the window with the addiction flowing through the earphones in my ears. Enjoying the pleasant weather, I tuned into the broadcasting station of nature outside the window, in which Allah spoke to me about his wonderful creations.
Eventually, the colors in the sky started turning dark and guess what! I saw a rainbow hidden in those soft clouds! It was the first rainbow I ever saw in my life.
I was thrilled by the colorful sky & hurriedly took my ‘dear’ camera out from my backpack and didn’t miss a chance to capture the fascinating sight. As it’s said, art is more than making something to look at. It is enjoying yourself and what you feel when you make it. And seriously! The photographs were worth it.
Well, I didn’t just enjoy that broadcasting station but also just by tuning in, he taught me to be grateful of the little pleasures which add flavor to living. Also, that life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the butterfly, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the breeze. Life is to be lived to its optimum!
