Sky was overcast with dark black clouds. It looked as if thick smoke has risen to skies. The evening was very gloomy and night was about to fall albeit prematurely. A lonely albatross was flying indolently towards its abode.
Why was it lonely? May be its partner has been snatched by the claws of death or by another albatross. What was it thinking? Was the life worth living alone? What will it do after reaching its home? Sleep alone, Sun will come again, the survival instinct will force it to fly again in search of food. Again in the evening it will return. Is there any hope, will it find a companion with whom it shall be happy and find after all a reason to live. Its life will have certitude, some meaning. It looked to me as a mirror in which i could see myself. God, it is futile to find reason with actions, your canvass of work is unfathomable. Each of us is different from the horns other. You have created this world and may be many more I don’t know. You created man and woman, love and hate, yin and yang, electron and proton; Osiris and Isis; all in pairs and complements. Each pair is two sides of a coin.
You become micro and macro, you are atom, nay you are the machinery inside the atom: protons, electrons and electrons; No, still smaller. You are quarks and leptons. Then where is the complement of albatross? Why have you denied it its partner and destined it to loneliness?
