Discovering Myself!


I never thought a short weekend trip can give me so much to think about.. So much peace and calmness inside...

It was an unexpected trip... A trip to Rishikesh..

I dunno.. what connection I have with water.. It washes away my pain & impurities and I feel I m born again... whether its rain from the dense clouds or a deep cold river of Ganges... :-)

As I said, it was unexpected, my friend called up in the afternoon around 3, 

She- Are we going?
Me- Yes
She- Pakka na, cancel mat kariyo, I'll see you at bus stop.. 
Me- haan haan.. dont worry I'll be there...

We took a random bus to reach Rishikesh... which was booked online at the last moment along with the resort...

We boarded in that dirty bus around 9pm, and for first time I realized how badly I missed travelling in train, which I always used to hate... 

Journey began, I was up all night... staring at the darkness outside the window... Night was long... we reached there with the sunrise.. and started moving towards our resort... it was small, beautiful and very serene... The view from the terrace was mind blowing.. Pure delight for my eyes...

It was like.. I reached in an another world in just one night.. the feel was so amazing.. the cold breeze... that poetic beautiful river flowing through mountains... It had an impact on me.. as if something is going inside my skin and touching my soul... healing it slowly... I was lost in the beauty of nature... I missed my camera very badly... 

The moment we entered inside our room, it started raining... Wow sight it was... Sea.. mountains... and rain.. I couldn't have asked for more.. We quickly got ready.. ate light breakfast and moved towards our small truck kinda vehicle which was waiting for us... we carried our boat on the truck and started towards river for rafting in the drizzling rain and awesome breeze...

We started rafting around 10am.. the pleasure which water gives me is impossible to compose in words... Sometimes I feel.. I was meant to be a water animal but by mistake born on land :P... 

The touch of nature's water touches my soul deep inside... Something, I cant get anywhere else... Its gives me a pleasure no one can think of...

In the mid river, I asked the coach-

Me- Will I sink, If i'll jump in water?
Coach- No, you are wearing a life jacket!
Me- Sure?
Coach- Yeah, still we are here for your safety.

SPLASH! And I was in water! 

Gosh!! It was an immense pleasure...Like I was in heaven.. I cant describe it... Water is a healer... It was like.. it changed something in me... It washed off my wounds & scars... I was just floating in water like a dead fish... And it was a real life... Real feel that I was alive!

I can still sense that feel, while writing it here... its giving me goosebumps.. 

3 hours in water were like 3 seconds... I never realized and we covered 16kms... 

Unwillingly, I came out of our boat.... and was trying to understand what just happened inside me...

I moved towards resort... lost in myself... reached room.. took bath.. had lunch and we went out to book our bus for Delhi... Got tickets...

We came back and sat on terrace for dunno how long... just enjoying the view and feeling the breeze... 

Came back in room and I don't really remember when I felt asleep... That sleep was different.. So so deep... So relaxing.. I dunno how long or short that night was.. I got up @7am with my alarm... And we got ready for our bus... We took bus @10am... and by evening we were home... 

It was an experience of a lifetime... people say they go for rafting and enjoy... I don't know whether they all go through all what I have experienced... It touched me deep within and had changed some part of me... Life is truly miraculous... amazingly BEAUTIFUL.. And water is MAGICAL...!

God :-)))) Love you for creating water and... of course! my people! :-)
