A wordy post alert!
I’m just back from a whirlwind trip to Kolkata—my hometown, which still feels like a dream. With just three days in hand, I managed to see my ailing parents and spend time with them, attended two wedding receptions and even managed a short catching-up with a few schoolmates. All this happened while I was struggling to deal with a couple of health issues that put me through a lot of pain and anxiety and I had no option but to put myself on a self-imposed ban from every device, which meant no blogging and writing happened all this while. I still have a long way to go on the journey of complete recovery but, I can assure you I will be there back to blogging regularly very soon.
For today’s #WordlessWednesday, I thought of sharing one iconic shot, that I’ve been planning to, for a long time. It is a throwback to a beautiful day and a beautiful trip taken last year—the day we went up the famous Table Mountain.
Wordless Wednesday 95
This picture speaks for itself—it is a breathtaking view of the ‘Mother City’—Cape Town, from atop the iconic Table Mountain. It was a dream come true when we visited Cape Town last April, and more so, to stand atop this mountain and enjoy this view below. I can only say that It was sort of a once-in-a-lifetime moment for me!
The picture is more of a birds-eye view of the city, with the Lion’s Head in the centre and Robben Island (where Nelson Mandela was kept imprisoned) in the distance, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean on all four sides. The city spreads out before you like nothing you’ve seen before and the curve of the Earth is something you simply cannot miss. Awe, wonder and disbelief—a few things that I felt rising within me that sunny morning, on top of the Table Mountain. For those who are interested, a detailed post on the trip itself will be up on the blog very soon. Until then, I hope you will enjoy this view.
