During the phase (2nd year of engineering) that I mentioned in my previous account I was going through a rough patch in life as I had a nasty breakup and then the grades were low. Although I had a new partner in my life (whom I am still dating), the feeling of dread still persisted.
One should know that we had a canal flowing, on one side of which was my hostel and the college campus on the other.
I used to go for long evening walks whenever I felt gloomy because road along the canal was plied less by the public.
The orange sky reflected in the canal waters coupled with the setting sun were the medicines to my sadness.
The pink of the sunset would make me forget my worries, the orange glow on the clouds gave me strength and the blue of the sky reminded me that there is a vast world out there to be conquered.
Coming back to the account, on one such beautiful evening, strolling along the canal I suddenly heard some "noise" of someone's babbling coming from behind. But there was not a single soul around.
There was no car, no bike and no one walking. It was just me.
I thought it could be a radio set or someone's mobile ringtone who would have lost his/her mobile around on road. But when I tracked back my steps, I was able to comprehend it. It said -"please don't be sad, everything will be alright". This whole incident lasted 5 to 10 seconds.
I felt scared at first but then came to terms with it. I don't know what caused the noise but surely it was something benevolent.
