Home Closer to Home
It is said that there is no place like home, but do you have a place which makes you feel closer to home? Beas is a very small riverfront town in Amritsar, Eastern Punjab. It lies on the banks of the river Beas. It is a place that I had often visited as a child and still visit every time I go to my country, India. It is my most favourite place on earth because it is very beautiful, peaceful and most importantly, it feels just like home to me.
Beas is a very beautiful town, because it is very clean and green. There is very little pollution in the air, and the streets and roads are free of garbage. There are also many farms full of trees and greenery in the town. Some of the crops grown on these farms are sugarcanes, corns, peas, eggplants and ...view middle of the document...
This low use of machinery and vehicles in the town helps keep the air free from pollution and the environment clean and green.
The location of Beas is very peaceful, as the town is very silent and the people are forbidden to bring cell phones and other electronic devices into the town. Cell phones and other electronic devices, which we think keep us connected to our loved ones are what distances us from them by keeping us preoccupied in our own worlds. But in Beas, I get some time to reconnect with my family because I am away from all the things that distance me from them. Peace to me is spending quality time with my family, and sharing my problems with them. Beas is a place where I am away from all the distractions and noises of the world. The setting in Beas is very quiet and peaceful. This makes it easy for me to meditate and meditation gives me peace of mind. This way, I find Beas to be a great place to find my spiritual self.
Beas is my home, because I have many fond memories of mine in that town. As a child I often visited Beas, and childhood is the most important part of one’s life. For me home is where memories are built up throughout one’s life time. It is hard to let go off memories even after one grows old, because memories are an important part of our existence. There is no place like home, because we spend most of our time at home, where we create life time memories. Beas is where I have had great memories as a child and these memories will always stay close to my heart, and I shall always remember them fondly.
My most favourite place on earth is Beas, because that is where I have had many beautiful memories, and I consider Beas to be the home gifted to me at birth by God himself. Beas is a most beautiful and peaceful place. Someday after retirement I would like to live in Beas. Beas is home closer to home.
