The people come to to wish the person bon voyage make sure the traveller gets some necessary goodies. But what would you offer to the God himself? On the contrary, he has left us a rich heritage which would enlighten the path of his followers for ages. His Pooriyaa-Dhanashree, his unique 'Asawari Todi' still lingers in the air; rich 'Karim Naam' stands like a rock. The likes of Kalashree and Lalat-Bhatiyaar which were created in this very world enrich the treasure he inherited from his gurus. The aura of Malkauns still pervaded the air, sensitive Marwa still makes us nostalgic; some exqusite strong 'taans' move around like a lighteing. There is a Des supporting his eternal love for his country and now there is this Bhairavi which has started roaming and suggesting an end of something. But wait, shouldn't Bhairavi be sung at morning? Then who is singing it now when the sun sets. Did someone say 'Swarabhaskar' finally sets? Didn't we no it has to rise again after the night!
Then why feel sad about the traveller who is leaving only for a night. Be sure he will come back, come back in style and with grandeur he created in his current stay. We still follow the path he has brightened for us. But then while we wait for him, we still won't venture in to the temple he once adorned and the road that takes us to than temple remains the 'road not be taken'.
