We come across some fantastic moments in our life. We have no explanation for why they should happen in our lives, except that we are very lucky. They are once in a lifetime experiences.
It was January 2005. I and Geeta went for a morning walk. It was quite early, may be around 6 in the morning. The moon was on the west near horizon and looking very big. We were in the Bandra fort, looking at the moon. It was a magical moment and suddenly, an airplane flew in front of the big moon.
We couldn’t believe our eyes. We just couldn’t comprehend what was happening. And before we knew it, the moment was over. We were speechless.
I didn’t take the photograph above. I didn’t have the camera with me, and the whole thing happened so quickly, that even if I had one, I wouldn’t be able to take the photograph.
In the second instance, I was more fortunate. I had my camera and I could capture the wonder.
We were visiting Gangotri. This was August 2003. We reached the GMVN rest house. It was raining when we reached and so we thought we were not going to make it to the temple. While we were contemplating what to do, the rain stopped and we went to the temple.
The Gangotri temple is situated on the bank of Bhagirathi. The place itself is so divine that one doesn’t need a temple there to feel the presence of almighty.
We reached the temple and did the Darshan. Just as we were coming out of the temple, it started raining. We were clamouring for our plastic poncho’s when the sun came out partially. As we were looking ahead mesmerized, a rainbow appeared from nowhere. It was beautiful. Even as we were looking, another rainbow appeared over the first rainbow. The colours in the second rainbow were in the reverse order.
There is supposed to be pot of gold at the base of a rainbow. What do you get when you see two rainbows? A divine moment!!!
I am extremely fortunate to have experienced these divine moments. Have you experienced any such moments is your life. Please share.
