Walking past the streets of #chalal there were a lot of graffitis but this one caught my eye; maybe it was the Buddha or maybe it was the art or maybe it was the thrill of the Himalayan state or it's beauty, but actually it was a bit of everything combined, travelling here was truly a privilege and trekking an experience I'm addicted to now.
SHIMLA- A Happy Place
I smiled and realized this is it. This is what I've been searching for from such a long time and I couldn't get enough of it.
As the trail leading to The Ridge ended, I couldn't step further. I was awestruck as I saw such an exquisite view in front of me. It was like some one picked me up and put me in some magical land.
And I consider shimla a magical place though.
I observed how the sky was wearing its most beautiful cover that night-Cover of different shades of blue .
Somewhere dark and somewhere light just as we all are. I'd never seen such beautiful shades in the sky.
Mild breeze swayed The National flag.
The best part about that place was The People.
Everybody was happily enjoying the moment. Some of them were enjoying a hot plate of momos, some of them were riding a horse.
An old couple was enjoying their conversation with a hot cup of tea.
A group of friends were laughing so hard, may be on some joke.
A kid passed by me with her vanilla ice cream.
and I just stood there looking at the view then those mountains.
There were many people around me, still I felt some kind of silence. May be it wasn't about the surrounding, it was about my inner silence.
That moment, that time, that silence answered something that I was looking for.
and that's why I'll always keep on saying, "Shimla, You're my happy place." __ @spitiholiday #SpitiHoliday#PictureWedsWordsContest
from @theunsungkabira - The view we enjoyed from the summit could hardly be surpassed in sublimity and grandeur; but one feels far from home so high in the sky, so much so that one is inclined to guess that, apart from the acquisition of knowledge and the exhilaration of climbing, more pleasure is to be found at the foot of the mountain than at their frozen tops. Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain-tops are within reach, for the lights that shine there illumine all that lies below.
