Caged glory

Sometimes I wonder what makes peacock our national bird…

Its glorious stance, jaunty pace and swift flights can put anyone to shame. In fact, it’s better to address the peacock as ‘he’ instead of ‘it’.

He drags along his long cape of Kaleidoscopic feathers like a king on his coronation day. Also, he has in his possession a divine crown laid flawlessly on his crest.

Looks like he has painted himself with the finest choice of colours! Shades of blue and violet shimmering bright in the daylight.

The beautifully sculpted eyes of black and white can bewitch you!

And when he senses a sweet drop of rain on him, his tail spreads out like an exquisite Japanese fan.

Standing before this magnificent bird and admiring it, gives so much pride and positive vibes, that it is difficult to keep the eyes off!!

There are so many lovely bird species that mother nature has given us, but something about the peacock always pleases me 😊.

Unusual landscapes

Photo challenge: Unusual

Isn’t it amazing to experience all the variations and colors of life while standing at one location ?! The startling divergence of textures and hues in this scenery certainly captured my heart.

Greenery flourishes alongside the golden dryness. Sandy mountains stand before the blinding snow covered peaks. And the river flows despite of all the differences, adding a glimmer to wherever it flows.

Whoever has laid out such wonders before me, here I stand and admire his creation…

Wake up!

Defeat your bed and wake up because…

There are birds chirping in the balcony trying to gather attention,🐦

So you need to wave to your fans!

There is someone who wants to give you a tight hug πŸ’ž

And you know you have to return the same!

Poor bed is tired of holding you up!

Have some pity, dear 😊

I won’t like drenching you with a bucket full of water!!

And you won’t like the bed-bath either!πŸ˜‚

The last piece of chocolate in the fridge is going to disappear soon!

1….2….3…🍫

And someone’s trying to click your pic while you’re asleep 😢

Get Set Pose!

The mighty and colossal mountains look so insignificant from the window of the airplane. But as the plane slowly lands, they seem to grow rapidly as if by the effect of a magical potion. At one point of time you are looking down upon the mountains with sheer pride and the next moment you’re tilting your head UP to face the humongous beauty standing tall and wide πŸ˜€.

The flawless contour of the sky with it’s beautiful nuances of blue does not fail to captivate!

Beautiful period of transition indeed!

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 😊.
