A Sunrise and a 5 Year Wish!


Have you ever gotten up early to watch the sun rise only to find it hidden behind a misty veil and then waited for it to shine in its entire splendor? If you have, you’d know the joy of all those moments and if you haven’t then... you have got to try it out someday. Really. It is something so beautiful; that it never fails to inspire, to leave you in awe.

Sunrise in Kerala

So when my fellow blogger friend and an ardent traveler Santosh of Huchchara Santhe asked me for a guest post on completing 5 years of his blogging journey, sunrise was the first topic to come to my mind analogous to a wish that his blog continues to explore and discover something new and exciting each day, every morning!

Here is a small excerpt from the guest post that is now 'Live' -

The sky is dull and listless, like a beautiful sketch in bluish gray. The sun is no where to be seen, hiding behind a misty cloud cover with its colorful box of crayons. 15 minutes have already passed by; the day has cracked but...

Do read the entire post – A new day, A new beginning... – on his blog! Thank You! :-)

  1. Too much light pollution to really appreciate sunset/rise on a regular basis where I live, I have however had the luck to view both in other parts of the world and you are so right.

    Away to view your post now, thanks for the link.

    1. In Mumbai, where I live its all concrete Martina - a jungle of buildings of all sizes and nothing else. :( Its only when I get out of here and travel that I get to see this 'Yes' thing in life!

  13. You are so right Arti, whenever I am up early enough to catch a sunrise, I lament that this goes on everyday and I waste the moment sleeping :)

  14. Dear Arti,
    Like you I love watching the sun rise as I feel that with it rising all the evil in the world has to go away to be replaced a new peace, a new good. In the same way the sunset with its vibrant colours takes away the fatigue of the day leaving us with the light of the moon to talk to.

  17. I know I have to hold my horse till the sun reveals itself though the day has already broken. I think the feeling to admire nature grows in the quietude. I'd like to be more sensitive to the real beauty of nature I usually take for granted in everyday life.
    Thank you for the beautiful and encouraging post, Arti.

    1. Thank you for your inspirational comment, cosmos. I think, yes. The things that we get easily and everyday are most often the things that we take for granted, nature being one of them. Sensitivity is just the right word we needed here -- we all need to inculcate in ourselves a fair bit of patience and receptiveness so that we can take in and enjoy the boundless joys that nature has to offer.

  22. Hello, Arti, I clicked the link and found that was a glorious sunrise which made your morning so sweet. Usually I’m not an early bird. But when I'm on a trip, I enjoy sunrise and feel happy to be wrapped in the warmth of the golden smile at the beginning of a brand new day.
