Yesterday , we went on a baby’s day out .
There was a visit to the Nehru planetarium followed by a trip to Dilli haat. A very randomly put together itinerary . Little did I know that I’d look back at the day with new eyes by the evening.
Nothing makes me feel as small and perhaps a tad bit insignificant as looking at the sky and wondering how many universes , galaxies , milky ways we don’t even know about. Now take that feeling and multiply it manifolds – that’s how I feel when I go to a planetarium. I’ve loved it as a child and am so happy my kid loves it too.
The idea that the stars we see shining today is perhaps light that’s taken millions of years to travel makes me ponder about what are we doing that’s of significance in our own lifetime. Hmm.
That trip into the universe was stark opposite of my experience at Dilli Haat .
It’s one of my happy places in the whole wide world. The amalgamation of colour and all things rustic and bright.Perfect place to feel earthy and grounded and yes , kick start the Diwali shopping too.
Got these gorgeous diyas the perfect symbolism for anyone who wants a fresh perspective on life . Amazing on their own but don’t they transform with a little spark and some context ?
What makes you soar in the sky and shine bright like a star? Or perhaps connects you to the ground and makes you feel earthy? Share your Earth , Moon and Star story with me too?
Or go ahead tell if the Diwali Safai and shopping has started at your end too ?
