Hope from despair while moving in 2021

इन काली सदियों के सर से जब रात का आंचल ढलकेगा जब दुख के बादल पिघलेंगे जब सुख का सागर झलकेगा जब अम्बर झूम के नाचेगा जब धरती नग़मे गाएगी वो सुब्ह कभी तो आएगी

जिस सुब्ह की ख़ातिर जुग जुग से हम सब मर-मर के जीते हैं जिस सुब्ह के अमृत की धुन में हम ज़हर के प्याले पीते हैं इन भूखी प्यासी रूहों पर इक दिन तो करम फ़रमाएगी वो सुब्ह कभी तो आएगी

This song written by Sahir Ludhianvi more than 62 years ago (in 1958) beautifully sums up the despair we were all in last year and looked towards hope while ushering in the new year 2021.

In all the high altitude trekking and mountaineering expeditions, the eve of the summit is very important and nerve-wrecking. Groups has to get up early and leave the camp almost in the dark of night. Sunrise comes on the way and a view like this can make the climb to the top very exciting. But, incidentally views like this are for only those who dare to trek.

In the above image the early morning light behind Indrasan and Deo Tibba peaks brings the hope of reaching the summit (here Chanderkhani Pass), just as the new year 2021 brings the hopes of new light overcoming dark times of year gone by! The world needs all the wishes!!
