The World Outside my Window

One of my favourite hours to stare at the beautiful scenery is at midnight when the church bell rings loud and clear.

There is nothing prettier than looking outside my window during late night hours. The street just outside my house is part of a bylane and is beautifully lit with  golden lights. The beautiful lights complement the huge white church that is just opposite my house. At night outside the church, there is a corner where many white coloured candles with the beautiful yellow flames shine brightly. I feel that the golden-yellow flames of the candles emit a ray of hope and warmth to all the less fortunate children who are shivering and sleeping on the footpath.


During the night hours I find peace outside my window when I can see the stars shining brightly, and hear faint noises of a cuckoo. One of my favourite hours to stare at the beautiful scenery is at midnight when the church bell rings loud and clear. Every night I also see an old man with a packet of incense sticks which he lights beside him  and sleeps. The aroma of the incense sticks truly refreshes my brain and calms me down. At night I can also hear faint songs coming from our neighbouring flat; it truly complements the entire scenery. The best part is the nest of a little bird in one of the potted plants that my mother had planted. The bird had recently laid two eggs and since the day I noticed it, I have spent my time observing her care for her offspring.  Just outside my house are rows of beautiful green trees which have been there for as long as I can remember. 


The only thing I dislike about the scenery outside my house is a dog who cries every night for food. I usually give him biscuits and milk every morning, it has become a part of my routine now but since it is not possible for me to feed him during the night it breaks my heart to see him crying for food. I feel every street has a beautiful story hidden in it which needs to be deciphered. has collaborated with ‘Word Munchers’, a creative writing platform that trains and encourages kids and youngsters to hone their creative writing skills. will be publishing two short essays by students of ‘Word Munchers’ every Saturday.
