With every changing seasons, the clouds in high skies of Mussoorie and Landour have always mesmerized me.
It’s a miracle, how, the shapeless clouds of different shapes and sizes, floating in the air take form of various figures and realise abstract ideas and thoughts. Since ages these clouds have inspired many artists, poets and musicians.
After a stretch of monsoons, sun came up today and I hit the road to steal little sunshine. The clouds were dancing in rhythm with the breeze, playing hide and seek with the sun. I captured the moment, and to my surprise, I found the clouds resembled the symbol of ‘Om’ in the sky.
Om is a sacred spiritual symbol in Indian religions, mainly in Hinduism, wherein it signifies the essenc Ultimate Reality. It is also part of the iconography found in ancient and medieval era manuscripts and temples.
The silhouettes of clouds lifting over valleys and mountain embed an everlasting tranquility in the mind and soul.
