I love waking up early, taking bath before the dawn, and hitting the road during the early hours of morning. I used to do morning walk for hours, but that had stopped since I started travelling to Gurgaon for work. However, I enjoy my morning drive from Noida to Gurgaon. I also enjoy my commute by metro during some days, when I do not like to drive. When I stand at my sixteenth floor balcony, holding my hot cup of black coffee (or tea), looking over the mystical dawn unfolding over a unusually calm, foggy, unpolluted, yawning town, I find a refreshing solitude. The experience of opening the front gate to pick up fresh milk and newspaper, listening to morning chorus of elder’s laughing club, smelling the buttery flavor of breakfast coming out from kitchen, meeting the school going kids at the community, they make me feel great to start the day early. Then I can say – let the rush begin!
