First rays: Flying to Guwahati, the sun rises and lights up the plane's windows with its orange glow
We were taking a night flight from Bangalore to Delhi and then an early morning flight from there to Guwahati. None of us were feeling sleepy when we were munching up some steamed corn outside the domestic arrival terminal at Delhi; later walking to the Balaji restaurant outside the departure terminal where we sat, sleepless, waiting for the time to catch the next flight.
On the flight, the sun indicated that it was ready by painting the whole sky with clear shades of orange and blue, then rose with its orange glow lighting up the whole plane. Later, we were lucky to see a clear sight of the Himalayas in the distance, and even though it was a little hazy, we could make out the bare mountains closer by and rivers flowing through the lands below.
