Is it just me or have the sunsets become magnificent of late? Looking at everyone’s Insta posts and stories, seems like it isn’t just me. Sunsets have always been pleasant to look at, but there certainly has been a magical element to them since the past few months. Is it the lockdown that has taught us to notice and appreciate the simple and little things more? It is true that the lockdown has allowed the environment and atmosphere to heal, which means our skies have been breathing easier, thanks to lesser pollution. This means that the sun has always set in a stunning manner, we can just see it more clearly now.
Either way, dusk is a surreal time, when the sky speaks in a thousand colours – and we listen. We witness everything from a wide spectrum of red to blue, and everyday’s sunset feels like a unique one. As the sun kisses the day goodbye, we feel a certain sense of letting go too. As we enter the twilight zone, we tend to leave our problems behind. It may have been a hectic day, but it sure feels like it was a good day, as the sun sinks behind the horizon. Sunsets are for everyone, and it’s something we must stop and stare at every now and then. If you enjoy the sunsets from your home, we are certain you will enjoy it from these villas too!
