Burning Desires

Varun loves summers, and so had planned to tick off an item from his bucket list of visiting Egypt on the summer solstice, where a viewer standing at the Sphinx could enjoy the sun setting precisely between two of the Great Pyramids – Khufu and Khafre.

Unfortunately, the lockdown collapsed his plans, the result of which he had to settle with a friend who was to trek to a hilltop tower in a nearby town.

He started his climb with sorrows brimming, but the mountain’s breeze soothed his wounds, the bright and clear sky spread some hope and he finally felt at peace that the life’s adventure would never end as long as the Sun burns, always reminding him of his pending wish and rekindling his burning desires.

The summer solstice occurs when the earth’s axis has the maximum tilt towards the Sun and is considered to be an auspicious day in many cultures. It occurs usually between Jun 20-22, depending on the year and timezone.
