Coonoor is a quiet little hill station, about 280 kms from Bangalore and 20 kms from Ooty. Its a beautiful place for green therapy, idling around and watching the world go by. I spent a weekend staying at the cosy Tea Nest property soaking the Green Therapy in Coonoor.
I woke up to the sounds of the chirping birds at the crack of dawn,
enjoying the beautiful sun rays that engulfed acres of tea gardens on either side,
which alternated with the mist that seem to come by, hiding the view of distant hills
while I rocked on my hammock, enjoying the green therapy that was soothing to the eye
as I mentally conjured a poem watching the spring time bloom, on every tree around.
Just then a bison came charging through the uber green terrace wanting the right of way,
but I till enjoyed my solitude with every one around, discussing worldly matters with friends yet creating music with my soul!!
Why do we need Green Therapy
Sometimes in life we are so caught up with our daily chores and schedules that we forget to appreciate nature in all its forms; sunrise, sunset, chirping birds and the trees around. The easiest excuse for the harbingers of development and modernization is to cut down trees and reduce the green cover around us. Green is soothing, it heals our tired eyes and soothes our soul. Next time, you are feeling restless, just go ahead and indulge in some natural green therapy.
