Adventures in Nongriat
It shakes, not just from the force of your feet striding along the pathway, but also from the winds that blow across the boisterous stream. You’re tempted to look down, but then a sense of fear grips your heart. Bridges do collapse, even the ones that are made more resourcefully using modern machineries; so trusting in the footsteps of my local guide, David, over this perilous bridge was either lunacy or an act of self-liberation.
The bridge may look like it is straight out of a Disney movie, but it’s very real. They are usually made from living plant roots and some take centuries to form ! (Read More in Travel India Blog)

Adventures in Himalayas
Himalayas, the home to some of the most beautiful mountain ranges in the world, is a place that you should never miss. With snow-capped mountains and scenic landscapes it’s hard not to be mesmerized by its beauty. If you are looking for a peaceful and scenic escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, then look no further than Himachal. There are many places in Himalayas where you can explore, but one such destination is Spiti which has been untouched by modern civilization and still retains its old-world charm with ancient temples and villages. If exploring nature is your thing then this trip will suit you best!
It’s been quite a while since I wandered. My new job as a news analyst kept me pretty busy over the past few months, and there’d seldom been much chance to think about travelling, leave alone actually venturing out. But as you know, a moment comes when the mind says, No more ! Such was the moment for me when I decide to wander into the Himalayas for seven days. My journey started in Bangalore. I flew to Patna one fine evening, and took a night train the same day to my hometown of Bhagalpur. The monsoon was in full […]
Read Part One by following the link. The excitement was such that I couldn’t sleep. It was already 11 PM, and I had my bus at 5:30 in the morning next day. Clearly, something was not letting me sleep, and I soon realized it’s more than just excitement. Midnight descended and a strange feeling of fear griped my mind—it’s not safe to visit Spiti. The more I read about the road that leads to Spiti, the stronger the fear grew. News about vehicles falling off in the ravine is not uncommon. The roads are treacherous, especially as you cross Kunzum […]
With midnight descended a strange ambience—an uncomfortable stillness, a mind numbing silence. In the quietness of the moment, I could sense the sound of their sleep. Her head felt heavy on my shoulder, and for some reason I stayed unmoved, not to break her quite slumber. But her locks tickling under my nose made me sneeze so hard that she woke up! She rolled herself into a gesture of modesty, followed by a soft apology. I wanted to ask her more about life in Tokyo, but maybe this was not a good time. Soon I drifted into a wakeful stupor, […]
That was unlike any journey I’ve had undertaken before, unlike anything I’ve had ever experienced before. Those views of deep chasm from the bus window still give me chills. That wallop which had me almost fly off my seat still fills me with terror. And amidst all the elements of dread, the beautiful landscapes—of sharp mountains piercing into the sky like bayonets of the gods, of snow-clad peaks shining in the sunlight like burning magnesium, of the playful drama of light and shadow unfolding on the slopes and foothills, rolling over each other like lovers making out in the wild—they […]
It was merely 5 in the morning. The harsh sunrays sneaked into the room through the glass façade, heating up my bed like a stove-top. The nausea still lingered, albeit milder as compared to the last night, and though the headache had waned away, my head still felt dizzy due to lack of oxygen. I sat at the corner of the bed, ushering into vivid memories of the journey which brought me here. I sat for long, as if in oblivion, staring at the void between my eyes, imagining the ponies and the yaks grazing in the lush green meadow […]
A touch of Spirituality
What is the meaning of life? What are we all here for? Why is there so much suffering in this world? These questions have been pondered by many great philosophers and spiritual leaders, but none have come to a definite conclusion. In fact, most people seem to disagree over what it means to be alive and whether or not death is the end. But one thing that everyone agrees on is that India has an abundance of richly diverse cultures that offer a myriad of answers to these questions. For those who want more than just an exotic vacation destination, India offers opportunities for deep exploration into spirituality as well as existentialism with some help from yoga classes thrown in for good measure!

But it important to respect other’s culture and food habits, especially when you are traveling abroad.

Thoughts on Leisure
It was a warm winter afternoon. I was wandering through a bushy trail along the coast of south Goa, feeling as ecstatic and warm as a reptile lazing under the sun.
