Fine Winter Morning

It’s a fine winter morning when I was strolling around the Sattal Lake with my friend Muni, who is here in hills to cover the election news. Sattal is a beautiful place near Nainital…

After crossing few restaurants which are close in off season we reach near the lake. In winter morning lake was so calm and peaceful. Layer of fog was hovering over it and making it more attractive…

We took a long walk and enjoy the beauty of this beautiful lake in winter morning…

Few pictures of this lovely morning…

Brahmtaal Trek Through my Camera

I already had many most challenging and adventures experiences in Himalayas, but going into Himalaya again and again is not only challenge or experience or adventure for me. Himalaya is a place where I can unload all my brain-garbage and reconnect with me and my soul...
So I suddenly planned Brahmtaal trek and I proud my decision coz the trek was incredibly beautiful, pleasant and relaxing. Later on due to heavy snow fall trek became adventures too...
Situated at Chamoli district of Uttarakhand in altitude of 4000 meter, Brahmtaal offers a beautiful scenario of vast Himalayan peaks like Trishul, Nanda Ghunti, dense forest of Rhododendrons and huge meadows, locally know as Bugyal…
Here I am posting few pictures of my unforgettable trek. I Will write detail treklogue soon…

My First post of new Year with full of memories


I was in Mussoorie, my Granny’s town after very long time.  When I reach there it was evening time and city was crowed for Christmas celebration. When I was child I used to come here every winter but since last many years I couldn’t come here…

My memories are stuck with my childhood days so I was still imagining something like that but when I first entered into city I was so amused.  I kept calling to myself – this is not my childhood Mussoorie. This place is some other place…

Crossing a long haphazard colony when I reach to market place, I was again amused. Nothing is there which I could recognize.  Everything is new, every construction is new. That old Charm of Mussoorie has been lost somewhere in the storm of development. Only few names are there which I am recognizing like Kulari Bazar, Landhor Bazar, Library, Kingrat Bus Station and only few old structures are there which are reminding me of old Mussoorie…

In my childhood I used to come to the market with my grand pa and he took me to the Paan (betel) shop from where he brought me a meeta paan (sweet betel) in every visit. But unfortunately no shop was there or maybe I could not recognize. I also used to go to deer park in mussoorie where we played with deers and my grand pa told me how to make friends with them. But now nobody could tell me anything about that deer park…

I got few things from there for me like hand-made leather shoes. When I ask to cobbler – once upon, few Chinese cobblers are also here – he said all are gone coz no business now. I am also thinking to close the shop. I got one coat and Ruskin Bond’s written story book too. Ruskin come to the shop every Saturday to the shop but this Saturday he is not able to come due to bad health.  I wish he will get well soon and next time I will surly meet him…

Jharipani road was muddy root but now its highway road and completely developed with lots of resorts and hotels. Even Barlowganj, where I am staying now, was jungle that time but it’s a complete town now…

Everything has been changed only few black & white memory remains…

 I turned back with heavy heart. When I was returning sun was going down and this is the only thing which is still not changed…     

Happy New Year To all my Blogger Friends.

Life of Hindu Hermits


Kumbh Mela is a mass Hindu pilgrimage of faith in which Hindus gather to bathe in a sacred and holy river Ganga. Kumbh Mela held in every 12 years at Haridwar, Allahabad, Nashik, Ujjain. Maha Kumbha Mela is an auspicious occasion in Hindu mythology which happens after 144 years. I wanted to be a part of the occasion so went to Allahabad in year 2013…

When I was strolling in Mela sight I came across with lots of hermits who are staying in a tent colony.  Every tent or AKHADA belongs to the different sect of hermits where they worship god in their own way…

Few hermits are quite luxuries. They were moving in decorated horse cart from one place to another place and some of them have weapons also…

I find some of them were torturing their body badly. Some are standing in one leg and some are standing in two legs in a same position from years.  Some were not speaking anything, some are Naga (naked) Sadhus, who don’t believe in wearing any kind of cloths on their body, Some are smoking marijuana and so many else…

Best part of this Mahakumbha was that women hermits were showing their presence in first time. Before that they were not allowed to participate in such occasions…

I get to know so much about them which I will write in detail next time but this time updating some pictures of hermits…
