There is something peculiar yet satisfying about nature. There are so many things to learn from it; most important being humility and harmony.
The towering mountains, humongous seas and oceans leaves you in awe. You are forced to bow in front of them. I feel awkward and dejected when people talk about “conquering” mountains. It’s actually the mountain that let’s you pass through it, with utter patience and humility. Hadn’t it been benevolent enough, people would never have climbed it and instead faced it’s wrath.
People living in the shelter of nature share a mutual understanding with it. They respect nature’s beauty and in return, nature cocoons them with tenderness.
Everything under nature lives in symbiosis. The first drop of rainfall cheers up the parched soil and quenches its thirst. The limpid glory which rests itself upon the soft glossy bed of a leaf, looks like pearls which embellish the surroundings. It seems that nature heals those who wish to live in it’s fold.
So, when you go out for adventurous trip, do remember to pack with you, humility, trust, low demands and empathy along with raincoats and boots.
You will find your path more easier to walk on and journey would be all the more pleasant.
I can very much compare myself to a nocturnal species like owls!! Having fondness for nights, I tend to appreciate it’s beauty and uniqueness as compared to other times of the day.
The clouds in the night sky look as if some grey water color has spilled on the canvas of sky. With stars doing the highlights, the canvas looks absolutely mesmerising !! An occasional streak of lightning also contributes to the beauty of the scenery.
Standing in the balcony, one must pay heed to the nightly choir of our knightly insects. Such amazing creatures they are!! – Celebrating their warrior spirit as well as heroism amidst solitude and solace, instead of making it a great show!
The petrichor and the herbaceous aroma of the foliage gives one’s nose, plenty of pleasure. It also calms the mind, leaving you in a fantasy land.
With all the beauty, night carries with it, it also gives me a pleasant atmosphere to work as well as concentrate.
Someone has rightly said, that beautiful things are not boastful or pretend to be bright in the daylight. Instead they shine when the world is dark and asleep…
The raindrop that feels cool on your face has gone through a lot of heat and pressure. It has survived the storms of distress and suppression, but still remains pure and clear. It is only because of the heat, that the raindrop has discovered new realms and colors of the universe.
These storms are a complimentary and unwanted item in every one’s plate of life. It’s how we embrace them and change the odds into evens, while still maintaining our original form.
“We will appreciate the brightness only when we face the darkness”
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…
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 😀.
The flawless contour of the sky with it’s beautiful nuances of blue does not fail to captivate!
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 😀.
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 lovely ladies 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 😂, 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 😂. 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 😊.
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”~~~~~~
