Somethings are best witnessed and experienced, but let me try

It was one of the quietest place I have ever been to. The hills in the background were a thick forest with melodious birds. The musical sound of birds was to echoing in the green surrounding. Even the wind was musical, I never knew that trees were such good music creators. The sound of leaves dancing with joy was taking me to a greater high. There was so much to listen yet it was so quiet, yet there was silence. I could hear my heartbeats, I could hear myself breathing and it somehow was sounding all musical to me. This never happened before, never ever. I never knew the music that I play all the while, may be because I never really could hear all this while I was in plains. This place was quiet, it helped me to connect with myself.

Beautiful Cloudy Valley Tarun ChandelThe valley in front of the hills was one of the most beautiful valley I have seen. May be it was because that day, the sky was covered in misty clouds till the horizon. It was such a beautiful sight. Being at a quiet place with an amazing view in front, I sat down there and chose to gaze at the horizon and listen to the most natural music and, at the same time enjoy the silence. I am finding it hard to express in words and I think you can notice that. Somethings are best witnessed and experienced.

awesome moon tarun chandelI must have have been sitting at the same place for hours, though it never felt like that. The moon was out to venture in the cloudy sky and it was an amazing sight. It was all so simple yet so beautiful. It felt like as if there was someone up there who had planned all this so that I could witness this beauty. The quietness of hills, the music of wind, the mistiness of surroundings, the beautiful moon lit sky, all looked so designed. May be it was just my mind that has always been designed to look at everything with suspicion. Or may be it was designed so that I can change my behavior and it worked, I guess (again suspecting ;) so it may not have worked).

It was the time when I realized that nature has so many gifts for us and we are busy chasing ... God knows what. It will be a good idea to stop someday to look around, spend sometime with yourself, cleanse your thoughts, cleanse your soul, cleanse your character and start afresh. May be we will be able to give a meaningful direction to our chase.

Thanks Tarun for making us wishful.

One thing I miss staying in Mumbai is seeing a sky full of stars...

Hmm - I may just end up going to Mahableshwar or somewhere before the seasons up.

--> Raj: Thanks for the appreciation.

--> Ankesh: Yes a sky full of stars is something that Mumbai doesn't have. But it has stars who touch the sky :)

--> Vivek: No need to die for a moon view. If you get a chance do visit the hills in north and I am sure you will witness even more amazing sights. And you hostel roof gives a good view of the moon that is something I would like to witness. I also saw pics of the sunset at IIT (in Ankur's flickr) and was blown over. I need to visit IIT sometime.

Hostels said...

Traveling is really fun and you'll discover a place that's very interesting.

Hostellers are usually more involved in meeting other people than your standard traveler, so it's much easier to get in touch with them.

Buzios Pousadas said...

Town hostels are liable to lean more towards the public/fun aspect of town life, offering information about pubs, tours of the town, non extravagance shops and night clubs.

Hostel websites commonly permit you to seek out for availability by date and to make a reservation online.
