The pinnacle πŸ—»

I survived 7 days without wifi and network !! I feel on top of the world !!

Wait, I am ACTUALLY on top of the world, at Khardungla pass – world’s highest motorable road which is approximately 18000 ft, in Leh-Ladakh πŸ˜€.

Leh- ladakh has got unrivaled beauty and solitude. You won’t believe that this is the place where there is acuteness of oxygen, sparse vegetation, lack of electricity, weak signals of wifi as well as network…. And this makes the place adventurous and all the more captivating. The place seems to be a great attention seeker!

The locals in Leh-Ladakh live a very simple lifestyle. They are polite, friendly, optimistic and united- all the characteristics which define an ideal human. Talking to them is always very pleasing. A group of rosy cheeked girls came running towards me and greeted me with a wide smile. I felt so nice and comfortable 😊.

People here have a great vision and they can sense things better than us. They are highly experienced people who survive the extreme with a cosy smile every single day. Yes! They are warriors and valient heroes.

The clouds soaring in the divine sky tenderly kiss the mountain peaks to form an eye catching and peaceful scenery.

Wherever you go in leh -ladakh you will always find mountains standing tall and high, looking down upon you with curiosity and eagerness. It seems as if each one of them has a story to tell. A story in which they reveal their glory, experience and wisdom.

It’s the place where you can click hundreds of pictures and still can’t get satisfaction! Every new corner unleashes a mesmerising scene accompanied by goddess of beauty.

We drank apricot walnut saffron tea. Natural sweetness of apricot and occasional crunchiness of walnut makes the drink heavenly.

Ever seen a circle rainbow ? 360 degrees ? Wonderful phenomenon it surely is 🌈!!

The sky obsessed with it’s alluring appearance looks down to see it’s reflection in the crystal clear water of Pangong lake.

And the wind that flows, aesthetically carves the sand dunes in Nubra valley.

Can I forget the deadly experience I had in the snowstorm?! My hair were turning white with snow flakes πŸ˜‚, toes were numb and I am surprised how I was still alive without my jacket on!

There’s always a fight between sun and wind. So we experienced all kinds of weather at the same place πŸ˜‚. One moment you are a stuffed teddy bear and next moment, sun suddenly becomes dominant and all you can do is to remove all the warm clothes off!

So… What I learnt from this trip?

Beauty lies in simplicity. Your inner self reflects your outer vision.

And as always, nature did not fail to impress me. It once again struck the chords of my heart 😊.

 

 

~Have a nice day !!

All in order

Photo challenge: order

With all the trees standing out tall and distinct with utmost orderliness I get the feeling that nature has to obey some rules of discipline too!

With all the wind that blows my hair back and turn my cheeks rosy, I can feel the peculiar smell of every single tree and breath of every single fauna out there.

The thought that there is life and beauty all around me excites my soul and that, all of this is put in order by Him makes me marvel at his glory.

Hot and cold – at peace β›…

Photo challenge: hot and/or cold

Hot and cold are opposites of each other. Ever thought that they could make peace with each other and settle at the same place? Such wonders happen only in nature’s magnificent bounty.

The calm and cold water flows beneath the fierce and raging sun. Both face each other smiling, appreciating each other and making everyone marvel at their glory. The sun makes his best rays fall on the water to add a shimmer to the scenery. While the water calms the short tempered sun by the bubbling and splashing of it waves against the shore.

Mother nature holds both of them in the same lap and treat them with equal affection. Such is the splendour and elegance of what is around us- Nature and only nature, which is created by Him.

Lessons from ‘water’ 🌊

Image result for water wallpaper

Water is the elixir of life. It represents the soul of an ideal human, beautifully and artfully. We already know the characteristics and properties of water but have we ever looked out for the deeper meaning?

~Water dissolves most of the substances in it. It is a universal solvent.

One should embrace all the positivity and let all the negativity be the residue. We should accept people the way they are. Molding people according to our ways destroy their own essence and beauty.

~Pure water is transparent and crystal clear.

This tells us to have pure and magnanimous heart as well as soul. Having a hidden face or personality can have deleterious effects and break the trust of loved ones.

~Water is unconfined and flows fluently

One must learn to let go off things that are disturbing and make one restless. Keep the life smooth and easy. Forgetting the past and moving on helps a lot to make you live in the present.

~Stagnant water attracts diseases

Halted situations or circumstances may have adverse consequences as well as an unhealthy environment.

~Water takes the shape of it’s container

One cannot always rule their idea or opinion. We must learn to adjust to the situation sometimes, if it’s not in our favor.

~Water is tasteless, colorless, odorless and shapeless

Simplicity is always appreciated as it reduces complications in life.

 

We should be like water. Having a philanthropic personality that soothes everybody, makes the life of a human more meaningful and fruitful.

 

~~~~~~”Empty your mind and be formless like water”~~~~~~
