“Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.” – Jack Kerouac
Just about to start my journey to my native. It’s 6pm at Delhi and just reached home after finishing my working hours. As usual not done with packing and thought to down liquor first. Then a fast rush to liquor shop. ;D
After all is said that can be said upon the liquor traffic, its influence is degrading upon the individual, the family, politics and business, and upon everything that you touch in this old world. 'Billy Sunday'
I was really not worried for my travel proceeding because this time I was accompanied by my friend Silvarius celso – my roommate, a wild life photographer and Picture Researcher by profession. I made him a promise to take him to Nainital with me which gonna be true.
I woke up in the middle of the way where we had food, that was somewhere in Gajrola.
“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
Finally we reached Haldwani, and though realized some travelers still sleeping. You just see this pretty girl :)
Again, we traveled from Haldwani to Nainital in bus. On the way when we stopped for tea, met a guy who got new scooty, and was not not able to start it. Then had a long discussion with him, and *phew*
Just saw a Panchayat(local governance) work during my uncle’s leadership, 5 years back when he was Uttarakhand State’s assembly member.
Yo, reached Nainital and such a relief and pleasure. *donno* how to express the words when touch your native land after a long. And the first scene was lake and standing-dreaming love bird, reminded so many things because college campus is so close from here and eventually love birds just hang around the lake and some other nearby places. What a classical life man!!
British time’s buildings still have a special presence in the city.
OMG! I was smiling when I saw our barn. My life’s uncountable memories are linked to it.
Do you need hot water? Then do the work by your own here in my village.
Just lying on d rooftop and clicking the pictures from my new iPhone. The sky view without dust and pollution, not possible in Delhi to see this clear visibility. #huuu
Clouds playing game there, even you can’t predict. This view is from front of my house.
After getting refreshed, I walked out into fields and garden with Silvarius. What a beautiful flora stole my heart.
This is how we keep grass safe for our cattle in village, this guy is enjoying.
I took out my liquor, and started with my village salads…
He is our Bhadaur, born in Nepal but now our dominant family member, looks after our cattle and small farming. I offered him juice.
At the same time Bahadur showing me the dead mouse.
Celso gone crazy there, clicking every time and everywhere.
This kinda pine tree adds beauty. Later in we use them to cook food! haha
Let you see where my house is somehere in mid of the picture, and another shot of my village’s landscape. I just enjoy my life like this only. ;p
When going to friends house, met a cow, stopped my vehicle and cuddled her. Such a great feeling, Moreover, made it my twitter DP too.
Going mad and deep in nature.
While heading to Bhimtal, I met two friends and discussed about things and life.
The most surprising moment: When I saw a true friendship of a monkey and a dog. I had been told by people that they never live apart. More than happy to see this relation, else assume dogs just living for sex ;)
Its night and about to rain and we were in Bhimtal. I had a beer at the same place and what an awesome imagery we clicked from this place. This island’s beauty was taking breath away.
I love my sister so much. Just got cracks for her and she enjoyed too.
This is how we keep our crops on the safe side from wild animals.
Next day in morning visited to our family temple.
And enjoying in bush too ;)
Just done with my worship and had bath near a hand pump, furthermore, my another friend Mukku reached home to pick me up for outing.
First visit to Naldamyantital, a holy place according to hindu myth.
We feed fishes there which is auspicious according to Hindu.
Mukku also enjoyed photography there and had so much fun, though liquor was continued.
Then we headed to Sukhatal, Garudtal, Sattal and our jokery and fun were soaring high.
He was that much crazy, went into the lake with his DSLR camera OMG! Yes, and I also went more deeper than him and clicked him. Yo Yo!!!
We got tired and had short nap there.
New couple was also there on the way to make their honeymoon in nainital and places around.
My younger Himanshu, who has just started his own property work firm. MY Love ☺
Evening had racing and sstyllll too ;)
Don't be dismayed by good-byes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetimes, is certain for those who are friends.
And back to pavilion, in Delhi as if in hell.
This trip was really crucial in my life, because so many other issues in home too. I can’t explain my problems here though glitz inclusion is okay. Thanks to God who helped me there to be more wise in takin some decisions. And I think I won over successfully too.
