Dhobi Ghat ( Open air Launderette) - The Wandering Souls...
"What are you seeing? Are you able to see our wandering selves out there in the cold blue water, floating like pieces of meteors, within the canvas of our universe? Yes our Universe!
That Universe where you have left us all alone, cold and frozen, unattended and soiled. And like an unknown sapling we woke up, to find us, floating. Floating and falling into a deepness; maybe between the chambers of births and deaths. We could feel ourselves in a state of half asleep. We could faintly hear the sounds of another world, hidden between the crevices of darkness and light.
Under the faint light of awakening, we could hear you reading out from the Book of Hades. Were you reading or chanting? Chanting a Hymn to awaken the spirit of the Underworld? The whiteness of our living was unsure until we were here.
Here, where we were exiled!
Peculiarly couldn't ask, whether this exile was meant to die or to wake up after we were dead!
Now, as we are lying without a body, we are no more entwined to the destiny of lives you have gifted us once. Our Souls spread over the planet and leave no mountain unclimbed, no valley undiscovered, no sea unsailed, ventured even into an inner sanctum.
Maybe a Sanctuary!
Our Souls mingle and leave no relationship unattempted, no emotion unfelt, no pleasure and pain unexplored. Our Souls plunge into their minds and leave no tale untold, no image unpainted, no melody unheard.
For the first time in our entire dissipated and borrowed life, our Souls transcend their fantasies and leave no idea unthought, no natural law undescribed, no wisdom undefined.
And even pass over the thinkeable and witness ineffable realms of other worlds and their inhabitants.
Curiously, without any idea of what we are, we have become the embodiment of the purpose of existence.”
