Out of the Window

Windows down, good music in the background, wind blowing through your hair and not a single worry in your tiny little brain; sounds like a music video ain’t it? Well sometimes we do get to experience such stuff and when we do we just wish that the cab ride doesn’t end. We are ready to pay a thousand bucks more but we want the cab driver to just keep driving till the worlds end.

In those fleeting moments when you feel like you are living in one of those ‘When Chai Met Toast’ song one doesn’t even realise that he/she is living in one of the best moments of their lives. Painting a masterpiece without any efforts……. Gah Van Gogh you and your starry nights! We hang the paintings discreetly in the palace of our minds revisiting them on some cold and lonely night when we are snuggled up in a blanket reading a book with good music in the background.

My first memory of such ephemeral euphoria was when I was in my second year of college and I was hanging out with my friends when I had got back home. We were driving through the night and I just put my head out (not recommended if you love your head on your shoulders…but gah movie moments are worth the risk), I let the wind blow through my hair and I closed my eyes and I felt gravity loosening up on me and my brain took a short sabbatical from the overthinking routines that keeps me awake at night. Anxiety took a backseat and I let adrenaline and oxytocin drive the shuttle through the space. I don’t know if I make much sense but this is as close as I can come to explain what I felt that night. I have had those experiences quite a lot of times after that and all of them have been nothing less than magic.

I have felt infinite every time and some infinites have been bigger than the others but non were less significant than the others

Thanks for reading through this piece. I have planned to put up similar articles where I have been inspired by a moment that I have captured on my phone on some random day. It may be nostalgia or just the first time I have felt it but I can assure you that all of them are gonna be a heartfelt feeling close to my heart giving you a peek into my dysfunctional life. If you liked it please give it a clap or two and don’t forget to share it.

Do leave a comment about your movie moments below. Cheers!
