You never know what you’ll discover on a walk. And, as you inch closer towards carpets of green and towering structures painted in brown, lurking in the shadows or behind a successful camouflage — are gems waiting to be found. It’s hard to ignore the anticipation in the air. It’s ripe with a myriad questions. Would the hunters outrun the hunted? Or, would the chase end without victory?
The odds can turn either way. And as you continue walking, your senses will slowly take over, as light plays games with your sight, and sounds question your listening. You will stop being an observer and that’s when, you’ll believe — you’re a part of a surreal world. Your appearance will set you apart from the rest of your friends. In the world of four legs, you’d question the need for only two. Without claws or horns or sharp canines; you’ll begin to realise how weak you really are. You’ve always been on top of the food chain and now, you realise, what it feels to fall a few spots below. Fear quickly takes over and you hopelessly search for allies.
You want to stay longer and keep walking in this magical world. But, you don’t know the rules. You had left a long time back and the only way, to be a part of this world again, would be to preserve it. So, the next time you’re back, you’d not have to be an observer.
