I belong to the south coast of Karnataka, in India, which means sea and beaches are the part of our life. It is bit difficult for me to explain and bit difficult for others to understand the connection that one can have with the deep blue sea and its waves.
In my early days we often use to visit this place only with family and friends but never had that connection. For me it was just a sea to have fun and the sand of the beach to play with.
But as I started growing old my perspective changed towards this place and I started enjoying going to this place all alone. Sometimes due choice and sometimes due to no options. You known how things change when we start growing most of the time\n friends get separated for various reasons and sometimes you just want to be alone and away from the daily routines.
That is how I discovered the connection between this sea and me when one weekend, tired of too many thoughts about the future, career and other things. I went alone to the beach it was evening of winter and the breeze was at it’s best I allocated my place bit far on the stone from the crowd. I thought I was alone and started thinking about my worries the more I went in-depth of my worries the sound of the sea waves started increasing and after some time I felt a strange connection between sea and my mind without the words. That day when I got up after few hours watching the sea waves the feeling I had been exactly the same that you feel when you have a long discussion with someone.
I didn’t speak a word and I didn’t hear any words, there was only the sound of the breeze and the waves but still felt like I spoke about my thoughts in my mind and those breezes and the waves had acknowledged that thought on my mind.
And now theses waves at this beach had become so familiar that almost every weekend I go to this beach and have a conversation with these waves with some hot cone or cup of a coffee. Sometimes it reciprocates and sometimes it silently acknowledges to my thoughts. Sea inspires to deal with the ups and downs of the life the way its deals with the Tides in them.
Not sure its real or just my imagination, whatever it may be but I had felt the connection with this place called “Malpe Beach“.
