Photo Story : Mussoorie – Queen of Hills

Reading the welcoming board from the bus, around 8:00 p.m., when outside temperature was around 7-8 C, I wondered silently – what can be so special about this one more kind of hill station? Tired due to those steep turns since last half an hour, irritated and not expecting anything special, we got down at the most beautiful place in Mussoorie, at least. Within 5 seconds of entering into the properties, I was developing new mood – mood to hum a romantic duet, mood to close my eyes and experience that chill, mood to observe each and every show piece in the property……why? See the glimpses on your own and decide, whether I was right or not 🙂

From the roof bar of open restaurant at 6th floor, when I saw those twinkling lights in the valley, I wanted to jump, really. It was like the valley became a necklace around the mountain and believe me, it was the most quixotic experience with nature or I would say, with the night. Due to lack of time, we could visit only couple of places around Mussoorie –

Kempty falls – I think words will never be able to justify the beauty and so I am not trying :-). Glimpses again,

Dhanaulti – 48 kms from Mussoorie, this was really a tough point to travel as the road was hilly and full of turns. On the way, we stopped for lunch, at the only cottage resort in the area. The Himalaya range was clear from the cottage resort and enjoying lunch with music while cooling our eyes with beauty of Himalaya was amazing. No one wanted to leave the place, see how it was –

And finally we reached Eeco park at Dhanaulti. It’s a heaven for photographers and children. After spending almost one and half hours over there, when a sparkling sun was not able to warm us, we left for Mussoorie. Glimpses again,

I know, I have not written proper words to describe how beautiful Mussoorie is but don’t you think a photo story always take over the word story?

Do tell me, how did you like it. I am waiting.

The day I STOPPED … … … Realization of untold facts about life in 200 words

The day I stopped worrying, my life became an enjoyable event

Image

The day I stopped saying FAST, I understood what it means to live

Image

The day I stopped being conscious, I realized what it means to be myself

Image

The day I stopped calculating my wealth in terms of money, I started appreciating everything else

Image

The day I stopped considering myself in a competition, I enjoyed my work the most

Image

The day I stopped caring about people, I substantiated myself with new confidence

Image

The day I stopped to look at that blossoming purple flower in the corner of garden, I started thanking every bit of nature

Image

The day I stopped to look into my toddler’s eyes, I started recognizing how much I was being missed

Image

The day I stopped to feel that raindrop on my face, I started gratifying nature and its abilities

Image

The day I stopped to enjoy the mess my toddler created, I could understand what I wanted from life actually

Image

The day I stopped to watch sun going home, I was mesmerized

Image

And finally,
The day I started loving myself, I came to know how beautiful this world is how lucky I am for being part of it.
