I decided to touch the water as I waited for the sun
to rise. The breeze had a no-nonsense flair to it.
The morning waves looked harmless and not really

People always crib about how humid it is (especially
in the afternoon) when they are close to a beach.
But to me, it is like being at home. I have always
found it to be energizing as compared to that of any
other non beach city.
I swam around for half an hour and was back floating
in the sea when I saw the first rays of sun…those
golden strings of a mysterious musical instrument
played by the Nature.
I stood there watching the sun rise literally* out of
the sea like a new-born child coming out of the Mother’s
womb. Involuntarily, my hands caressed the sea for a
bit of water and offered the Arghya to the greatest
source of energy.
That is when I realized of the one certainty of my life
about the only certainty in our lives. I could see it
very clearly that no matter where I go and what I do, I
am going to come back to a sea. Yes, that is where I am
going to end up settling and live the rest of my life.
No Idea what that place is but I can see a smalltown
beachside shack 🙂
*all of my previous encounters with sunrise at a beach
were clouded by the cloudy morning weather.
p.s : I never thought I would like Chennai..
