Ladakh Journal Day 2 Chapter 2: My First Star Trail ????
After trekking down to the Indus and clicking some amazing sceneries, I decided to go back to my guest room. It took me around 1 hr to trek back up to my guest room.By 8PM, I went down to the mess to have my dinner. I randomly looked out my window and saw the mightiest – “Milky Way Galaxy” in front of my eyes for the very first time in my life. . . The countless billions stars from the arch of voidness and emptiness twinkled at me, filling my heart with hearth. The ones which were father away, out of human comprehension, were like flashing pinpricks red in colour. Out of sudden, I saw a shooting star for a fickle of the second. That moment filled me with euphoria and bliss which made my eyes wet. Under this huge blanket, I realized my existence and problems are microscopic to the whole grandeur of this universe. I am tiny little microbe who is running around people to justify my existence. My ego and individuality is nothing as compared to the larger schemes. In that moment of realization, I actually felt alive in its truest form. That was the moment when my head was clear of all the tensions and sadness which had affected my life before I came to Ladakh.
