One winter evening, on my way home, I happened to pass by the famed Hazratbal shrine, Srinagar, which is especially revered by the local populace as it houses a holy relic, a lock of hair said to be that of the Prophet of Islam. It was a beautiful winter night and the air held a bracing chill. The dome and the minarets of the shrine, made of pristine white marble, were lit up with floodlights producing an ethereal effect in the mist-laden darkness. The roads were deserted as people retire early in winters. The trees in the foreground of the shrine, which is located on the banks of the Dal Lake, were lined with roosting egrets silently contemplating the magnificent sight of the lit-up shrine. Every dome and minaret of every religious shrine point towards the sky. They represent human obeisance and homage to the unseen power above that stores immense knowledge far beyond the comprehension of human mind.
