“Solitude is not the same as loneliness.
Solitude is a solitary boat floating in a sea of companions.”
– Rober Fulghum
Of Idyllic Afternoons and Boat Rides: #WordlessWednesday
In between the busyness of attending a family wedding in Calcutta, we took time away one misty afternoon, to regale in the beauty of the river Ganges. We went for an idyllic boat road, while other boats and grand ships drifted along side ours; savouring the enchanting serenity of a nippy December afternoon.
Yes, that’s me, caught in deep contemplation on candid camera, by who else but our little photographer in-house, my ten year-old.
A memorable afternoon spent enveloped in the lap of nature, as the wispy winds blew on our faces and the river flowed gently in tandem with our thoughts. An afternoon totally well-spent, and wrapped up with refreshing kulhad* chai, served with generous doses of ginger.
*Kulhad: traditional handless clay cup, that is disposable and bio-degradable.
