Ground of enlightenment.....

Returning from the lab, i was lost in some strange place. Came to the poolside parking lot. Half covered in leaves and rubbish. And it takes only a blink of an eye to transport me back.......December of 2006. I am standing in the same lot. Pleasant climate.Wind blowing. And i can see myself, to my right. Sort of decently dressed, mouth wide open, tongue about to lay a carpet for my eyeballs , which were ready to pop out at any second. This was the first time, i had experienced live rock n roll. This was the first time, i felt that energy, that head rush, that pumping of adrenaline. The first time, those loud guitars, drums, bass and vocals put a real wide grin on my face , besides deafening me a bit. Where Bhrigus magic mesmerised me and Brute Force really melted my face off. This was the birth of metal head. Genesis.

Today standing at the same place, i cannot, but smile and reminisce.For 3 days that relentless attack of rock music, carved something that still lives undiminished. Something that has altered my life in a big way and also those who are very close to me, maybe in some other ways.

I was clutching my slightly rubbish camera, in my left hand. I wanted to snap this place up. But a moment later, i concluded: "what for?". Just like the audience of Woodstock 1969 can vividly remember Jimi's performance on the last day, i can still,very clearly see every moment of those 3 days raging past in front of my eyes. I think a smile and a devils horn will suffice. Thank you very much.

A drop of Wonder....

It was the first time. Creation. Genesis.
A state of flux, the big bang, what scientists would proudly call, a singularity.
Where rules go for a toss. Where one can either speculate what is happening or try metaphysical explanations.
A moment written about by our wise old men of the yore, when they talk about the Tandava.
A dance of nature. A dance to creation. A dance, an art form, for that is what the human cerebellum can comprehend.
An upheaval, revolution, by all the parts that form the basis of existence up to that point in time.
An explosion, a fiery launch towards freedom, unknown frontiers, dark recesses.
A release of tension, so strong, so energetic. Unrivalled.
From one point of light, a challenge to the all pervading darkness. Cutting through it, disovling all.
Creation of fundamentals, of simplicities.
Realisation of a divine entity, God, Almighty.
