5th – adbhuta (wonder)
color depiction- yellow
famous people- yashoda ma when she witnesses krishna’s magical feats

Adbhuta – represents wonder. You know you are in the streets of mumbai, when you wish you were moving while in your device of transport, but you aren’t. tadaaa! welcome to mumbai meri freaking jaan. and dharavi is the king khan of them all. i was stuck in one such dharavi jam as if a meteor had struck few meters ahead of the road. basically the auto driver wasn’t the man of my dreams and i wasn’t exactly enjoying the fact that he gets to spend so much quality time with me. i sat, all disgusted with the city of my birth. when my eyes and ears unanticipatedly caught strange light and sound waves (respectively). those from a jiggling bunch of street kids and the blasting music system playing david guetta! the dharavi 5yr olds were giving massive competition to Michael (r.i.p) and Prabhu and Rakhi, all smoldered in one. todalllyyy killing the scene maannn!! now i was severely bedazzled with what our life is so full of! such contrasts, such variety, such surprises, such beauty. one can only wonder why a millionaire dies out of stress and how for the street kids this world is their playground. one can only wonder…
