Sun's Shining Somewhere

It was a cold night, close to midnight. Far away from the cacophony of the buzzing city crowd, which might still be crawling on the streets, I was sitting in the balcony of my flat, alone, enjoying the tranquillity of the night. There was no sound except for the chirping of a cricket. It was not very far away from the place where I was sitting. The sky was shining with all its pearls glowing brighter than ever before. A star at a distance was flickering quite in harmony with the chirping of the cricket. The biggest pearl among then all, the moon was in its full form. Its craters appeared non-existent.

Suddenly from nowhere a herd of cloud approached. It started engulfing the sky. The moon protested against the cloud. It started moving away and the cloud mercilessly followed it.  In no time, the cloud overpowered everything and then there were none, no stars, no moon. During that part of the year cloud with such an intensity was unexpected.  The wind was blowing at a fast pace now and it added to the chillness of the night. Then it started raining. A little later, a lightning charred the sky and it was closely followed by the sound of the thunder. The intensity of the rain increased and kept on increasing, it appeared as if the cloud would burst any moment.  A tree at a distance surrendered in front of the atrocity of the air and water and compromised its long lasting attachment with the earth. It appeared as if the sunlight would never grace us again, the world would slowly but surely melt.

I couldn’t bear the freezing cold anymore, went inside, locked the door, rechecked the windows and went to bed. Very soon I forgot that the world was facing the wrath of the nature and I slept. When I woke up next day morning, I immediately went to the balcony. The sun was shining bright. The subsisting cloud was disappearing very fast. There was no threat to the world anymore.

Isn’t our life like this? Sometimes when it starts appearing that everything is set and life’s beautiful, unforeseen problems embrace us. We keep on wondering if the life would come back to the right track again. With every passing moment, our trust tastes a new downfall. Its During that time we only need to do one thing, keep the trust alive, trust on your own ability and trust on the almighty (if you believe in one). Yes, there is a sun shining somewhere, the light of which would certainly brace us one day.
