Things are changing real fast in today’s world. Technology has developed so much that each day we can feel the change. It took a long way for mankind to reach at this stage. Technology has taken a big leap in the field of communication. Up until a decade ago email and mobile phones were much in reach of people. Letters through postage were the cheapest means of communication and expensive long distance telephone call to talk to your loved ones were expensive.
During the past few years, cheap internet access and smart phones have changed the way people communicate.
Here I am not going to talk about these modern means of communication, but the old ones which kept people in touch for very long time. It was the one that kept family and friends close enough across boundaries. It’s the one that people had to wait for months to get response from their loved one once they send their letters.
Senario at Sundhara infront of International Post Office
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an offhand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you’re older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I’d something more to say
Home, home again
I like to be here when I can
And when I come home cold and tired
Its good to warm my bones beside the fire
Far away across the field
The tolling of the iron bell
Calls the faithful to their knees
To hear the softly spoken magic spells.
The above lyric is from the song “TIME” by Pink Floyd from their album Dark Side of The Moon. I feel this lyric has so many things to tell. I have heard so many songs, but the lyric of this song has special place in my heart. It’s not about a love song to memories to remember your girlfriend. This lyric is more than a love; it is above all the lyrics I have heard. I would like to keep this lyric above all the lyrics that have been written and that will be written in future. It is the most inspirational lyrics that the world will listen to.
I support Local Empowerment. So, I’m sharing this Everest Base Camp Trek to promote a new way of trekking where trekkers can empower the local service providers like lodges, guides and porters by booking services directly through them. #empoweringthehimalayas #freetriptoeverest
