Went into the hills for some bird-watching😊… Just the cool breeze, green forest and birdsong (LOADS of it!!).
Thanks to friends with a similar love for nature and beauty that such precious outings are possible. The leaf-logged trail in the hills, is what I had been longing for and thats exactly where I found myself, right in the midst of abundant Sal forests.
The birds are aplenty right now, they reaffirm my belief that their Habitat is not ruined completely… We should protect their space fervently and categorically… Our co-inhabitants of this beautiful planet who spread so much joy around… 🌏💕😊

The Rolling Hills
Make me relive the thrill
When, with a small picnic hamper
We became little campers
And explorers of new lands
Discovering magic within our hands
As we dug for imaginary treasure
And spent a whole day of leisure
Under the warm and cool sun
Having our special brand of fun
As only children can do
With worries, so few
We saw wonder in colour, still
We saw chiffon skies and
Candyfloss hills… 😀

I remember travelling to the hills in buses that were held together by the sheer genius of the driver and conductor (and some highly innovative roadside mechanic!). There was nothing there that did not rattle or squeak. It stopped at the remotest of places and welcomed everybody happily. The guy holding a squawking chicken upside down was as comfortable boarding, as a lady with a basket full of fresh vegetables which rolled out at every turn.
During one journey, rain pourned inside the bus because of holes in the roof. It was then that the stranger behind me opened his umbrella and saved the day and my head!
I have come to believe in the goodness of human nature through my travels. I have seen people go out of their way more often than not, to help someone in distress.
Maybe I travel because it rekindles my faith in humanity…
Enroute to Lamahatta, WB
Sitting snugly in the embrace of the hills, a pristine lake of emerald green vegetation makes a perfect picture of tranquility.
Nature soothes the soul and the eyes in equal measure…
Dirt Roads or Pagdandis in Hindi, never fail to arouse my curiosity. The way they meander into distant mountains and hills makes me wonder about their final destination …
No matter how tough life is for the people living in the hills of Himachal Pradesh, most homes manage to keep flowering pots by the windows…adding beauty to an inhospitable terrain.
The undulating hills roll like a gigantic wave
Pine trees stand proud like a group of friends huddling to discuss the happenings of the day.
Nature in just two colors tells a breathtaking story.
A story about harmony….Ying and yang
