This October has been a disappointment as far as sunsets are concerned…Almost everyday the glory of the setting sun was smothered by dull clouds. Today was a different day.
An old Malayalam song came to me as I kept a lantern on the window sill and clicked the Sun
”ശരറാന്തൽ തിരി താണു മുകിലിൻ കുടിലിൽ, മൂവന്തി പെണ്ണുറങ്ങാൻ കിടന്നു”
Dusk, the young maiden, turned off the lantern in the House of Clouds and went to bed..
As usual I could not neglect a profound line from Emily too…” I am out with lanterns looking for myself”’
