In the peace of the early morning hour, I realise that heaven is a place on earth.
I chance upon it accidentally…like rays through morning mist. I see it in the first effort of a bud to bloom, when it releases a perfectly formed petal from its tight embrace as if to test the world that it is going to inhabit.
It is in sudden patterns that form. Connecting random dots into a semblance of coherence. It is in these chance encounters that conviction dissipates confusion… like the fine mist that the sun lifts from the face of the earth, revealing new definitions of how heaven is just something we take as ordinary in the guise of the extraordinary….

‘Dignity’ is such a beautiful word.
It is an inherent quality of grace that some people have, no matter what work they do…the work doesn’t give it to them, they impart it, from their being, onto the work they are doing.
I chanced upon and started a conversation with a charming lady taking care of toilets in Fortis Hospital.
She was standing on the counter and wiping the upper reaches of the mirror. I greeted her and complimented her on her attention to detail, to which she replied, with a smile,
“This job gives me food, it keeps my family satisfied, so I should give it my best..”
Closeted in a space full of toilets, cleaning our careless mess and with a heart full of gratitude… !
What struck me most was just how neatly she was dressed. Her hair tied in a bun, lipstick and kaajal in place, a beautiful smile of greeting that actually reached her eyes!
The toilet was her domain, keeping it clean, her sole purpose. Her job was a reflection of her and she wasn’t ready to let herself down!

Think home decor, think windchimes. This is one simple addition that adds beauty and works as a peace magnet. The sound of a tinkling windchime helps bring back our attention from wherever it has wandered and parks it right into the beauty of the unfolding moment 🙂
