Magic happens when you’re not looking. It gets you unawares and leaves you craving more. I’ve had a few magical moments myself, and the most profound of them all is when I stood at the foot of a near-frozen lake with snowflakes falling on my hand. It was the Tsomgo Lake in Gangtok.
Nothing was unexpected at that moment, but until I stood there, I never expected to get out of the vehicle and experience the snowflakes. Where I live, it’s sunny round the year, and that day was the first time I saw snow. The sight of the snow-capped mountains reflecting on the lake sent shivers down my spine that had nothing to do with the cold. That’s the kind of magic I’d give anything to witness again.
