    In darkness, we all search for a beacon of light! Even if it goes out temporarily, it will leave us in total gloom! But when the beacon of light once more appears, it is like being born into a bright world and we no more think about the darkness! Human mind is conditioned that way! A profound write!

    A temporary blink.
    The darkness before
