 'W' is for 'Wait'

Don't mind, if i say we human beings are crazy creatures.  I think, we're really like that.  Our minds possess treasures of boundless fecundity. Yet, it is no child's play to fathom its knotty, sometimes childish contours.Well, taking my own example of inactivity and languor for about a fortnight will suffice to make a point.

During the hangover of sorts, I tried hard, but failed to prevail upon my whimsical inner being to take up  its usual creative activities, which remained postponed for no reason. Believe me, my ubiquitous internal policeman was obstinately  indulging in a chiding spree all the time. However, my mental space remained uninspired. 

Then something unexpected happened. Fortunately for me, I traveled to a holy town (Damdama Sahib, Talwandi Sabo) in my state of Punjab, on an invitation to visit a newly established private University there.  Afterwards, we visited the historical Gurudwara  located there,which is one of the five sacred Takhats of Sikhs ( Seats of Temporal Authority) in India. While taking a round of the hallowed precincts in the company of throngs of devotees,  I experienced the feeling of elevating supreme energy and positive vibes enveloping the surroundings. Slowly and slowly I felt the veil of inertia and cynicism  melting away. Long awaited spiritual resolution filled the mind zone liberating the inhibiting  web. Such are the magical moments,which make the earthly journey of ours worth pursuing.
So, here I'm.

The entrance to the Gurudwara. The rush of the people on an ordinary day.

The sanctum sanctorum (above) where the devotees pay obeisance.On the left, on dais are ragis (singers) singing Gurbani (sacred hymns). The process goes on throughout the day with ragis'  group getting replaced after a fixed time.

Friends,welcome here as always!
