Tungnath — Among the clouds

Get your #TheBlindList and #SayYesToTheWorld with Lufthansa


For me, the place that I love more than anything is mountain tops. And the best and the most feasible of them all is Tungnath! It was in my Bucket List for quite a while and traveling to there has been an enriching experience, full of self exploration. Here's my love story with it.


Flying high in the sky, among the puffiness of the clouds, are the Himalayas so calm, muted and soft, in the lapse of which anybody is forced to wonder in solitude about everything that goes on the plains that so vehemently rolls below. There, in the abode of peacefulness where mere thoughts echo, where sun so gracefully cuts the clouds, where ravens dare to fly, where wind soughs past, where cold freezes bones, I found myself.



The trek to Tungnath and Chandrashila is one of the easiest and beautiful trek in Uttarakhand. Tungnath being the highest temple of Lord Shiva in the world (3,860 m) attracts both trekkers and pilgrims alike, with the for…

Exuberant Love

'What is life without love? And is love any force to reckon with? Or is it the mere feeling masquerading as happiness to one? Or is it getting happy by used someone for their own good?'  The question still torments me.
What I believe is that love is nothing that can be seen by eye for the eye only sees things in light but it is the shadow left behind that is the true legacy of love.

Book Review: Ramyana: Rise of the Sun Prince

Author- Shubha Vilas ISBN - 9788184955309 Pages- 256 Binding-Paperback Publisher- Jaico Publishing House Price- Rs. 250

The ancient Indian literary masterpiece Ramayana comes in its modern form. Rise of the Sun Prince ( first of 6 volumes)  covers one khand of Ramayana. The narrative closely follows Valmikis Ramayana, gently weaving in folk tales as well as the beautiful analogies of the Kamba Ramayana. Rise of the Sun Prince, takes you through the divine story of Lord Rama from His birth up to His marriage.
Best thing of book is 'Life Lessons' or 'Sutras' on almost every page, which help in relating the story with our own lives. It is intact with the original epic, unlike other recent authors who change story according to their whims and fancies.

From the very beginning, we are taught about the importance of Gods and holy books like Ramayana in our lives. But to be true, no one in today's world cares to go through or even look at such holy works of literature.  The centra…

Book Review: Private India

Author- James Patterson and Ashwini Sanghi Genre- Fiction Pages- 470 ISBN-9780099586395 Price- Rs. 350


The famous Indian author of Chanakya Chant and The Krishna Key, Ashwin Sanghi, and the star author of Alex Cross series, James Patterson, collaborated for this book of Private Series. Private India, basically being a crime novel, has some elements of style in it. 
It begins with a murder, goes on to take reader around town in Mumbai (with stops in exotic places like Dharavi and the Parsi Tower of Silence in Malabar Hill), and ultimately tries to find a fine balance between Hindu mysticism, current affairs issues like violence against women and the grit of an all-American spy thriller. In all, it is combo of all thriller elements.
The case of the serial killings is handed over to Wagh and Co by Mumbai Police. Our one-point introduction to the city's police force is Rupesh, a cop who shares an uneasy, strained relationship with his former colleague Wagh. Patterson says characters are impo…

Life....served 'crushed' up!

I know that we might never ever be together but still I am writing this to make you understand how much I love you. I know that when you will read this we will be long gone and dusted and you might have even forgotten me and if not, you will only remember me as just a mere man in billions. But my heart has only burnt with love for you, the only one i want in billions, and nothing can change it. But then suddenly the reality kicks me in my butt and reminds me of my life I'm missing out on. It feels like a bad dream and I certainly need to wake up.

It all started with a friend request and who knew that one day my heart will start beating for you as if it was made to do so. I miss being the one who made you laugh, happy and even mad. You loved teasing me and I loved getting teased by you. You used to call me 'paagal' and yes, I am 'paagal', 'paagal' for you.

Lately I have been losing sleep, dreaming about the things that we could be had there been a different ra…
