It is a good time to find a quiet space for the mind before the hustle and bustle of the busy day.The morning call of the awakening birds greets me as I head for the terrace of the house. Sunrises in Chennai are a different experience from those that I am used to in my part of the world. The tones are different, and the colors are more muted. The explosion of light and color that I am used to experiencing as the sun clears the horizon seems to be missing. But it is a remarkable experience nonetheless.It is too bad that most of us are indoors, either asleep, or preoccupied with getting ready for the hassles of the day, when this phenomenon takes place. I can see myself on a beach or on a mountaintop just soaking it all in. The glory of a sunrise provides a good moment for meditation and contemplation of bigger things, and this is true regardless of where you are in the world.
