The Spark of Life 

Life, or shall I say the roller coaster of emotions? It goes up and down, slow and fast, but the essence lies there. Ever enjoyed a ride at amusement park with no fluctuations, definitely not unless you’re on the relax mode and opting for the flat ones like a simple boat ride on water! What’s more interesting that even our roads have enough potholes that you’ll face turbulence and jumps every now and then. Maybe that’s the reason India is nowhere seen in the amusement park business. The roads are definitely a low cost, back breaking alternative to roller coasters. No offense, government. We are used to riding on potholes.


How does the image fit in this? Look closely. You’ll see a great amount of fluctuation, just like the roller coaster ride. There are some parts dark and some bright, just like the ups and downs of the ride. The image looks beautiful because of that. If it only had lights, it would be pure white and it would be black in its absence.  Contrast and variation is its beauty.

The light compliments darkness and the darkness makes light stand out. That’s how it is.  Lights are happiness, optimism, and guidance of our lives. We all love this part. However, darkness is something we all hate. If there’s a power cut now, you’ll end up cribbing. Of course, that’s after your phone’s battery runs out and the power bank exhausts to death. The cut makes you realize what all you had. It would remind how important the tubelight is, and how much comfort does that three bladed cutter like helicopter part hanging on your ceiling gives. Maybe you’ll open your windows, look out and see around. The wise ones will enjoy the breeze, the morons will look at the single building having electricity and complain as to why there’s no inverter at my place! Maybe that’s what is making your place darker, the omnipresence of light!

Embrace the darkness, let it revive the spark in yourself, and see how exuberant the world looks without any additional light source but your soul! Go for a stroll downstairs, maybe you’ll end up playing hide and seek with your neighbors that you wanted to since forever. Maybe you’ll forget the existence of external sources like the mobile phone, pc , or television which are so essential for pleasure and gratification in this age. Maybe, you’ll have a sound sleep because you have nothing better to do. You’ll feel helpless and bored until the light comes. The experienced and ones with wisdom may light a candle and make a paper fan! Whatsoever, you’ll survive!

Therefore, go ahead and live the flashes of life. The rays will light your way, and moreover, activate your sense to guide yourself to the gates of enlightenment. The darkness will ignite the need for self-reliance and self-dependency. This combination will make you, you! 

Darkness is the discovery of yourself and light is your learning!
