As I look out of the window, I see the dark starless sky and thousands of spots on the terrain before me.
Far away to my right, there is a hillock covered with yellow dots - lights of lanterns that burn on kerosene. There are bulbs too over some o f the huts.
At its feet are tall buildings and I see bright neon signs and long tube-lights arranged in rows. More in number than required.
To my left, I see a line of bright yellow spots - moving slowly in a straight line - almost like a streak of diamonds being pulled in a direction.
And I see dots of lights of different colours.
There are huts with the lanterns, skyscrapers with tubelights, bulbs dotting the shops and markets and headlights of cars moving on the highway.
I see survival in poverty in the lights of the lanterns. I see flamboyance in the array of tubelights and the neon signs.
The way I see the cityscape is in the form of patterns of these dots - each dot an entity, a person, a set of dreams and ambitions.
