The day…

When we travel or not, nonetheless, there are days those are dear to us and we like to think about those days on the other hand there are some other days those are etched in our memory as a gash and we don’t like to about those days. These are quite clear classification and pretty much sorted. Then there comes the third one, the days we are not sure about, was it bad or good, I learn a word for such days, “weird”

These are the days when you start to feel really bad and something nice turns up and then when you start feel good and a turn and it keeps happening whole day one by one as if keeping the balance of the day. It is looking at one’s life in nutshell of one day’s time.

It makes you feel funny as at the end of the day you can’t decide how to feel about the day and that’s where your personality type comes in play, that is, whether you are optimistic and celebrate life like it is a game and look at the glass half full or you are one pessimistic and concerns are more important to you compared to celebration and you are the one who look at glass half empty. It becomes important as that decides on these weird days that how and what mood you will take with you to bed.

Ultimately it is you who can make a conscious choice of being happy or sad or indifferent about something or may be everything, let alone a day!

Jungle, People, Escape & Tamasha 

You might be wondering what kind of title is that! Well, its some what as incoherent as my thoughts are but don’t worry I would try to make these edible for you but in case I fail to manage ( not that I passed in that earlier post!!) please  cut me some slack and read it anyway. So coming to the main theme….

I have spent last few weeks in Himalayan foothills, cycling in and around Jim Corbett National Tiger Reserve along with couple of hundred more people while helping them out with various knick knacks of mountain biking and jungle as and when required and was fortunate enough to have a direct or indirect conversation with some of these people.

During these conversations interesting phenomena came out. Many were behaving totally differently then they do in their regular lives. Notable point here is almost all the people were practically strangers to each other or most of others in this gathering of wanna be off road cyclists and they had an opportunity to portray themselves whatever way they would like and no body would know in their regular lives about it.

Whatever happens in jungle stays in jungle

People tried to engage in conversations at their will and possibly argued/ talked in more free way then they would do compared to their regular settings.

They cracked jokes, exchanged pleasantries, ate, slept, cycled, laughed, cried , loved, be loved, roamed, practically Lived their lives more as they wanted to and less as they were supposed to.

It felt like they were living an alternate reality , an alternate life.

An Escapade!

Not very long back there was a hindi movie released on similar theme with the title Tamasha, featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone as lead pair. Just it was taken more towards a happy ending where patrogonist is sucrssfully able to breakfree from his life and covert his alternate reality into the main stream reality with the help of his lady love. Cherry on the cake was everybody ( family, friend and other not so insignificant people in his life) understood his actions snd approved in one way or another. What did you say?! Unimaginable in real life? Ofcourse why do you think its called reel life?

However lets hope everybody is able to live their alternate reality daily at least in bits and pieces to keep their mind sane and heart from exploding!

Cow Tourism?

This kind of scenarios are now becoming fewer day by day in India, where still majority population lives in villages and small towns. The beauty of country side has been changing with times and urbanisation has spread its wings wider then ever.

This beautiful scene used to be part of daily lives which I cant remember when I spotted it latest before. Hope people realise progress does mean to kill local inhabitant and traditional economy but to proper with inclusive growth.

Indian Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi is trying to make the economy work and his right wing party and other associated groups are making bru-ha-ha over trivial issue including beef at the same time, cows are loosing their numbers to plastic, malnourishment and other related issues. Time will tell what actually happens though for now we can contributing in cow tourism.  We will be able to help them I hope.

This town, located in Rajasthan, has a lot to offer for a person who is willing to go places off the tourist map and willing to experience the life beyond. You can witness dravidian style temple without going to Southern India,  Can make cow dung cake yourself, Can feed a cow, Can be fed by cow milk, making huts in ancient Indian Style, making food in ancient Indian style are few of them, Let me know if you like to do.

Why every one should try and travel at regular intervals?

Looking at some places in real is different then looking at them in pictures apart from making you nostalgic, these activities tend to fire a train of thoughts which later have a chain effect in your mind.

Traveling is therapeutic. It is meditation when one can loose all the monkeys on one’s shoulder and changing landscapes & surroundings help as to assimilate newer information for day to day life mind tend to get busy in processing new information rather then being in auto-pilot mode with all known surroundings.

Some says it is an escape, I disagree. It is similar when I disagree if one say yoga is escape. An exercise to keep to mental and/or physically fit is merely an effort to live life in a more healthy and enthusiastic manner should not be called escape, whether it is travel or Yoga. With changing life, times, life style has taken very weird and contradictory situation as to destroying our mind, body and soul. Contradictory in a sense, things those claim to give us strength in any sense, food items in health, media in entertainment and so on, are actually performing opposite effect and sad state of affair is people are not realising it, being busy in watching the drama & being part of it.

Wandering one gathers honey

                                                                 ~YHAI

This quote has inspired many and continues to do so. However how many are really able to do it real time and real life. Every body is busy attending to Grihasthashram or Family Duties Wandering is clearly not a feasible options for everybody.

Decluttering of mind and soul is one of essentials for living a healthy life and travel help in that immensely. There are many type of travellers around and you can find your own style as well. There is this video which showcase normally lethargy for travelling and leaving the comfort zone objectively.

World would so much more fun to live in when everybody understand themselves, about their passions, desires and things they really want to do. Travel will help you do that.
