Nepal…

Nepal or Himalayas is heaven on earth. First day of my trip. I was going to famous Manakamana temple. It is famous for fulfilling wishes of pilgrims who pray to goddess with true devotion. This temple is located on 1,302 m above the sea level and we had cable cars to take us to temple and back. The bottom station of cable car is placed at Kurintar and top station is at Manakamana. The temple campus is with the views of
Himachali and Annapurna ranges in the north. Trishuli river in the south and Marshyangdi the west.

On my way back from temple, the cable car stopped in the middle of nowhere and our heart start beating frantically. But soon the turbulence was over and all the 6 passengers including me sighed in relief .

There are various kinds of shops around the temple including some hotels, shops which sells wooden toys jewellery, fruits, wine. There was also a live band performing at streets around the temple. The environment was so magical. So with a heart full of memories and camera full photos, I bid my goodbye to that glorious place.

On my way back to my place,I lost my way and stumbled upon banks of river Trishuli. That place is magical.I locked my car, sat on the rocks in the middle of the river, dipped my toes in water and watched the clouds changing colours, sun setting in far West. It’s been so long since I travel somewhere. It’s been so long since I talk to strangers and laughed with them on their stories. It’s been so long since I sat somewhere peacefully.

Nepal is a beautiful country with magical landscapes, amazing roads and kind hearted people. It should be in your bucket list.

Banff, Canada

An hour and half ride from Calgary, Banff if put in simplest words, is a must visit destination for it’s magical magnificence turns into reality, the animations we saw on T.V. the Banff has all those perfectly conical snow capped mountains, magnanimous cloud cover, trees naturally placed in line on the perfect slopes….

Thinking of it as a fairytale? Still can’t break that stereotypical myth of yours, that places like this dont exist? In that case, have a look at this.

Now how does that look? And wait a minute for here comes another one. 

Doesn’t that seem as the actual representation of what we call a paradise?

Just remember to get your thickest wraps out, gloves and boots along with a dozen moisturizers. For the best views take the very best out of you. And speaking of very I’ll add the very best part for those who are encapsulated by busy schedules, Banff, trust me, is heaven covered in a day or so. 

Hence, I indeed will venture to state, whenever up for Canada, do get Banff written on your your list… Go out there, fall for the nature, have a good laugh, and

ਪਤਾਨੀ ਕਿਉਂ |

ਤਾਰਿਆਂ ਵੱਲ ਵੇਖਦਾ ਤਾਂ ਤੂੰ ਆਵੇਂ ,
ਕੰਡੇ ਤੇ ਕਿਨਾਰਿਆਂ ਵੱਲ ਵੇਖਦਾ ,
ਤਾਂ ਤੂੰ ਆਵੇਂ ,ਚਾਰੇ ਪਾਸੇ ਤੂੰ ਆਵੇਂ |
ਪਰ ਕਮਲੀਏ ਤੂੰ ਤਾਂ ਮੂੰਹ ਮੋੜਕੇ ਚਲੀ ਗਈ 
ਪਤਾਨੀ ਤੂੰ ਤੇ ਤੇਰੀ ਯਾਦ ਕਿਉਂ ਨਾ ਦਿੱਲ ਤੋਂ ਨਾ ਜਾਵੇ |

ਕਈ ਸੁਪਨੇ ਬੁਣੇ ਮੈਂ ਤੇਰੇ ਨਾਲ ,
ਤੂੰ ਤਾਂ ਸਾਰੇ ਚੁਰੋ -ਚੂਰ ਕਰ ਗਈ ,
ਜਮਾ ਹੀ ਟੁੱਟੇ ਹੋਏ ਕੱਚ ਦੇ ਸਮਾਨ ਵਾਂਗਰਾਂ |

The Girl On The Last Bench

Today I finally observed you, sitting on the last bench, totally engrossed in ‘The Pride and Prejudice’. You were probably oblivious to the boy sitting on the bench next to you or to the girls singing on top of their voices on the first bench. And just when I thought you were to preoccupied for the world outside, you smiled at the literary remark someone in the middle row made.

We never had a conversation except the one time you were my subject for the psychology project. You were  really slow to answer my tasteless questions. And dear you were cautious too, placing each of your words perfectly one after the another. I was in awe of the way you speak. You are just like me an avid reader.

Perhaps you have learned from Elizabeth Bennet, how not to make hasty decision and how to appreciate the difference between essential and superficial. Maybe like Alaska you too have a hurricane inside you, like Atticus Finch you too delete the adjectives to have your facts strong and solid. Like Katniss you have internal conflicts but you too know, just like her, hopes live on.   

Most likely I will keep on guessing things about you and never ask you anything,

-A girl just like you

p.s. Elizabeth Bennet is the protagonist in the book Pride and Prejudice (Jane Austin), Alaska in John Green’s book Looking for Alaska, Atticus Finch of To Kill a Mockingbird, Katniss of  The Hunger Games series.

Dear Almost

Dear Almost,

I was ninteen when I met you. We we’re like poles: North Pole and South Pole. I was chaos, you were calm. I was afternoon you were midnight, I was blizzard and you were that soft, slow snowfall. I was tides and you were waves.

We are different, we could have been sky. As if it was us. But we were ‘You’ and ‘I’, the sky and the clouds, close yet miles apart. You had always remind me how easy it is to fall for someone. But you just never count on me realising I was nothing more than a bad habbit and that you were always going to siphon what you could not give…

POWER COMES IN RESPONSE TO A NEED, NOT A DESIRE

Ahoy! Yes YOU !!!

Excuse me… Yes youYou got a minute or so, just to slow down a bit of your scrolling speed and unfold the brilliant truth before yourself.

So now, since you’re here I’ve got something special to tell you. You see other than being homo sapiens and a set of some fundamental features, we’ve all got one more thing in common. 

Some refer to it as goals, some as dreams, a few call it ambitions too and a few also refer to it as targets. But, irrespective of the fact that they range from living an american dream, or running a corporation of your own, getting the job you always aspired of till the point of mastering your paint brush strokes, producing a bestseller or simply finding the true love of your life… they vary from everywhere to everywhere.

Now, you might be wondering what is so special about it, we all know it already… don’t we? But, oh my sweet friend, what you ought to know is the major difference which separates it from being an ambition forever or dream turned into reality. So brace yourselves up for that difference is.

Exactly… that is the very difference which separates the fabrications from reality... Not getting it?

This hunger you had, to know more, the mindset of not throwing the towel in before you get to the answer, putting the extra effort and being consistent in it, even as small as scrolling for ten more seconds has indeed made the difference, the difference ninety nine percent of people fail to realize. The difference which separates the great from the good, champions from winners, achievers from even the toppers and indeed learners from skimmers.
