Last week I went to Rishikesh-Musoorie for 2-3 days.The agenda for the trip was I wanted to find the peace of mind and I wanted to explore the nature(as a impact of watching the movie "into the wild" for consecutive 2-3 days).
The outcomes of the trip were:
1.I realized you should never go to a wild life sanctuary back to back for two months.It looks good in movies the jungles but in real life sometimes they look endless.
2.The cottage which we were provided was somewhat isolated as it was forest guest house of govt of india.It was surrounded by trees, complete dark at night,pin drop silence. And that was the peace of mind which I was looking for.But within an hour I realised that its all in your head.Even in chaos you can be at peace.
3.Rafting is not that much thrilling as it is being generally discussed and I think it's being over hyped with adjectives like fundoo,faadu,khatarnaak.It's good,nice but I didn't feel any major thrill.May be my bars are too much high or may be as I was escorted by ITBP guys I didn't feel the terror .
4.I found out there is an awsome Indian band of boys(not "meri neend ud gayi" wala ,ewww).
"Swarthma" awsome songs.Listen to it on http://www.swarathma.com/ganas.html
5.Musoorie is a nice place for honeymoon.It's not that much area wise but you can spend a day or two on the roads with your spouse (obviously day time).
6.If you have not seen hell on earth on place I will tell you the address.It's at dehradun public toilet.Me and my friend had to see that place due to unavoidable nature calls and believe me behind all those five doors it was hell.Infact during the whole time while I was there I was actually thinking , hell must be better than this.
When I started for in the morning I decided that it's gonna be smoke free.I will enjoy the fresh air near river Ganga and there I was sitting on the darkest and lonliest spot on the banks of Ganga at night with a pack of Marlboro Regular turning my Trip which was intended to go into the wild turning slowly into the smoke...................................
