Awakin Circle – Ahmedabad

Every Wednesday evening, a few homes leave their door ajar. People from walks of life join for a collective hour of silence and reflections. In the hour of collective silence, a few find an escapade from their daily routine to have a conversation with themselves, maybe a few others simply savour the pensive silence. Meditation in itself is hard to define.

Matheran on a Rainy Day

Matheran is India’s smallest hill station. Situated in the Western Ghats range in the state of Maharashtra, and easily accessible from India’s largest metropolis Mumbai, Matheran makes a perfect getaway for seekers of nature and solitude. Matheran is an eco-sensitive zone and no vehicles are allowed except emergency vehicles. The mode of conveyance is horse riding, or one may choose to walk, which we did. Although a toy train used to ply from Neral to Matheran, due to a technical snag, it was not functional.

Triund | Misty Mountain Hop

“If you go down in the streets today, baby, you better
You better open your eyes, 
Folk down there really don’t care, really don’t care, don’t care, really don’t
Which, which way the pressure lies
So I’ve decided what I’m gonna do now
So I’m packin’ my bags for the misty mountains, where the spirits go now
Over the hills where the spirits fly” – Led Zeppelin

A few tents studded across the meadows. The day hikers preparing to return back and the crowd became thin. I trod on the rocky mountain observing the vastness of the mountain and the expanse of the Kangra Valley. There was an eerie silence, for which I have traveled solo a few thousand miles.

The Zen Trek – Kheerganga

Trek to Kheerganga: A Photo Story 

Mountains should be climbed with as little effort as possible and without desire. The reality of your own nature should determine the speed. If you become restless, speed up. If you become winded, slow down. You climb the mountain in an equilibrium between restlessness and exhaustion. Then, when you’re no longer thinking ahead, each footstep isn’t just a means to an end but a unique event in itself. – Robert M. Pirsig [ Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance ]
