Do you ever get that feeling where your heart is thumping , your body feels restless and your mind is exploding with a million thoughts all at once ? You feel so happy but you just can’t put it into words ? And you wish that the moment never ends ?
This feeling of immense joy , merged with kicks of adrenaline is called ‘Euphoria’ .
It is different for different people . For some it is when they dance , for some it is when they listen to their favorite song , for some it is the tizzy that alcohol sends you into !
But for me , it is exploring and observing places .
I am a kind of person who is interested in what’s going on in the backdrop of the story rather than the characters ; to put it in other words , I have the tendency to get lost in watching the surrounding , and absorbing every little detail of a place rather than listen to what the people around me might be discussing about .
My friends rarely hand me the camera , because they know very well that I would end up capturing the colorful gola stall or the unusually huge fly sitting on top of a gola …rather than taking their pictures !
I don’t know why I like doing this . All I know is that , I just do !
I feel that every place in itself has a story to tell . Take South Mumbai for instance . The Victorian architecture there takes me to a different era . I can still feel the British air . I feel that the huge intricately carved panels , the strong pillars , the various sculptures overlooking the busy streets ,all yearn to tell a story untold .
Be it the filthy and gloomy streets of Chor bazaar , the fragrant chaos at the Dadar flower market , A glimpse of the foggy nilgiri mountains , the sandy winds of Rajasthan , or a majestic sunset at Marine drive , each has a beauty of its own . And encapsulating that beauty in my mind gives me a high !
But my point here is , that each one of us should identify our own ‘Euphoria generator ‘.
Everyone should know what is that ‘one thing’ that lets us experience ultimate bliss. They are like a safe place , where we can retrieve when we feel low . They lift up our spirits and give us a reason to continue our search for more such moments in life . And their memories immortalize that happiness within us . So before moving on with your lives , I suggest you find that ‘one thing’ ,so that today when you step out into the world….You will step out in search of happiness !
