Life is an Adventure

There is nothing static in life. Everything changes with the blink of an eye. At one moment, you are celebrating and the other, you are mourning.


There is so much to be anxious about and so much to be happy for. But what matters most is how we go smoothly in our lives. Our attitude towards our lives.


Our calmness in times of distress, our balance in times of happiness, decide how long we can go and fulfil our purpose in lives .


Life is an adventure and you have a part to play , you have to fight in difficult times just like you enjoy your good times. There is no running away from this adventure, only forward is the way..


Keep Going

You are distressed,
You are Anxious,
Do you know why?
‘cause you are Lost !

You are Lost in a Jungle,
An artificial world,
Built by you, standing on lies.
A concrete world i.e. unreal!


There’s a Portal out there,
Portal to Peace and tranquillity.

Wander through and embrace,
The strength and power,
The Sunshine and rain,
The life in the Lap of mother Nature….

In Between Darkness and Light

Varca beach, Goa

There’s a light fading with a promise,
The promise to bring sunshine again,
Till then let me bathe in it’s wonder,
The wonder between darkness and sunlight…..

Hope you had a great year, some may have struggled. But, What really matters is just you hang on there, try to have fun with whatever little moments you get. And wait for the amazing moments to shine on you…

Sooner or later they will….

Kuari Pass Trek (Lord Curzon Trail)

Kuari pass Top

When nothing in life makes sense, when you feel lost in the polluted urban jungle which you call home, then you have to go back to your roots, the wilderness from where your species evolved. That place, those mountains from where you truly belong.


After another difficult year , I decided to go for another Himalayan trek in the last week of October 2021 and my destination was Kuari Pass which lies at 3876m height (from sea level) in the Garhwal region of Himalayas ,Uttarakhand.


It was an autumn season in the Garhwal Himalayas and the entire trail was coloured in green , brown and golden colours. You can only see snow above 4100 meters at various mountain peaks that surround you through out the trek.

Among clouds above tree line


Some of the peaks that takes your breath away during this trek are Mt. Dronagiri (7066m), Mt Kamet (7756m ), Mt Nanda Devi (7816m) and the nearest to Kuari pass, Mt Pangarchulla (4575m). You feel their presence like a shadow through out the trek.

Pangarchulla Peak , lies in the same trail of Kuari Pass


The trek starts from Dhak Village in Joshimath (about 513km from New Delhi) and from there the entire trail is a steep ascend. The trail takes you through beautiful Deodar and oak forest called as Tali . From your camp in tali forest , you ascend above tree line, walk through golden bushes and various ridges to reach Kuari pass summit. And from there you return back to your camp in Tali forest.

Dhak Village


From Tali forest camp you then trek to magnificent Tali Lake and descend to Auli via Gorsan Bugyal, a breath taking green meadow. From Auli you finally return back to Joshimath via ropeway which in itself a breath-taking experience. The entire duration of the trek is 4 days.

Tali Lake


The entire trail is covered in snow from December to march and since this trek was firstly explored by Lord Curzon during British rule, it is also known as Lord Curzon Trail.


The Glistening forests , the shining bushes, walking among clouds and the stunning view of the lake were the hallmarks of the entire trek. Camping in the middle of a Himalayan forest and the stunning milky way galaxy watching you from above during chilly nights , is an experience that you will never forget.


These wilderness pushes you towards your roots, which is free from all tainted thoughts you have spoilt yourself with. And when you finally get to know what wrong you have done it is often too late.


So travel, trek to these places and see yourself correcting yourself with each heavy breath you take during the ascend.

Positives of 2020

Well, for most of us year 2020 is the worst year of our lives and I can’t agree more with them .

We saw so many of them lost their loved ones because of this deadly pandemic and many dreams shattered with the crumbling economy around the world. 2020 brought tears of loss more than happiness.

But we humans are very hopeful creatures. We can be very greedy too but we can never stop ourselves from being hopeful even the world is going to end tomorrow. We can hold onto little moments of joy when we are with family and friends and simply love to get lost in those tiny moments.

And yes, we got hell lot of time with our families this year, thanks to lockdown.

We focused on cooking food, washing utensils, cleaning our houses more than making our bosses happy in the professional environment. At the same time the nature which had been exploited by us got time to heal to some extent.

Well we have to do more in order to heal this planet .Our vulnerability this year became a golden moment for nature to heal. Our loss became mother Earth’s gain. So are we the villains on this planet ? Well, it depends on us, how much we care for others, how much we care for our planet !

Year 2020 stopped us , made us to think of our actions, taught us a lesson and gave us an opportunity to correct ourselves. There is life out there in the wild , the real life we should look for , the life beyond money, power and greed ! There, truly our happiness lies.

Happiness is real when shared. Let’s share our happiness with nature by protecting it, preserving it and helping it to grow with us !

The Mountains Calling

Stuck in a hazy nightmare,
Lost in an urban illusion,
Craving to get my breath,
Back from the land above !

A faint whisper wakes me,
From an urban slumber.
Holds my face and echoes
“Come to me in the land of Gods

O powerless soul! wake up,
Free yourself from this muddle,
The mess that pollutes ,
Is created by you !

O powerless soul! Come
To me and see my greatness,
How wrong you are
How minute you are !

The life which you live
Is full of greed , is so futile !
Climb, sweat and feel the pain.
Come, breathe, see the light with me !

A Small Spark

A tiny glow in the dark,
Shivering with the cold wind.
Tormented, scared to surrender !

A struggling ray in the dark
Dented and stabbed to limp
Trembles by holding his heart !

A tiny will in the dark,
Waging a war with his broken sword
Tries to vanish an army of dark!

A fading spark in the dark
Ignites the hopes in the grave,
Before it sleeps in glorious past !
