Singing the ninth symphony in Deer Park
Life is a series of disappointments. And then you see something grand and noble, which surpasses life. The other morning The Delhi Walla came across a giant peepal tree in Deer Park, Safdarjang Enclave. The tree was a forest. It thick branches were covered with dry dead leaves; many had fallen on the ground. A few buds were growing on the upper branches. The spectacle of both death and the new-born life sharing the same space was dramatic, like the final movement of Beethoven’s ninth symphony. Delhi seemed large than life.
