I am a hopeless romantic. No matter how barren, lonely or dry a desert is I will always find it romantic.
Well, the reason could be movies, especially the Bollywood movies and their romantic songs. Or my infatuation with Jaisalmer . Every time I think of desert, I think of Jaisalmer. No, I have never been there but the romantic soul inside me craves to be there.
I always wonder why all the dry places be it Ladakh, Rajasthan, Gujarat have a very colourful culture and equally colourful attire.
A night in the desert, I can make love to sand and play with night, all night. Feeling sand with your naked hands and feet, letting them cover you and when some just stick to you, it is love. When you walk on desert and your feet sinks in every time you put it down and it seems like it holds you tight every time you pull out.
Desert gives a feeling of longing. Who will understand love more, if not a lonely person. Desert being there for so long all alone, burns out all day and cools off every night.
