Mesmerized...



If you ask me to single out a reason to spend the rest of life in Chandigarh today, I would probably say – Sukhna Lake
The man made lake stands majestically in 1 corner of the city beautiful. I have been to lake thousands of time and not 1 time it has failed to impress me.
Scores of Chandigarhians throng the picture perfect setting everyday for a variety of reasons.
You can be there with a group of friends to make hullah.. or sit quietly on the edge of water with your loved one
You can run 4km on the jogging track or have a leisure stroll on the road necklacing the lake.
You(Kids) can enjoy the joy rides or can just sit in the nature’s lap admiring the beauty.

It was around 7.15PM today when I reached the 1 km mark while jogging and the scene which met my eyes left me spellbound – literally. I tried to capture it in the camera but no matter how beautiful the photos may look, it doesn’t do justice to the atmosphere which one feels in the midst of the gorgeous setting.
I just sat there completely immersed by the gargantuan Blue colored Himalayas, a thick green cover of trees at its feet. And both of them casting a sensuously strange colored shadow in the light bluish waters. The blue cloudy sky with orange thrown in a truly artistic fashion completed the setting. And I sat there, mesmerized by the spectacle. It was a rare few minutes when the mind was blank – no office, no home, no future, no past or present. Just the magnificence of Nature.
