Shikha  Strangeness and pathos but, then again freedom and a lot of melody

Here's to the best travel partner: @riding_soles
#LiveThere #InThailand
I love how we travel for each other at times. There are some folks I want to meet, some places I want to go and you're always up for that. There are some crazy things you want to do like jumping into chilly water when you have a cold. I'd do that a million times with you.
Our last little #escape together was along with @jyotishmandeori wherein all three of us wanted a #weekend #getaway to get away from the chaos we'd felt. And Col. Rana's pretty and cozy Doli Guest house was one thing all of us wanted to go for. Jibhi is a small town in the banjar valley and staying with Rana sir was all we needed to get our lives together and to calm down.
The lush green #gardens, #hammocks, the #sound of the stream that synced with our heartbeats after a while, the waterfalls, castles, all of it was straight out of narnia!! One of the best #monsoon experiences in #Himachal Pradesh. And the stories @riding_soles exchanged Col. Rana. Going trout fishing with the #family, and getting disappointed because the flow of the river was too heavy. Haha!
What melted our hearts at dinner time was the pretty musky lighting and the Nutella #pancakes and a again the sound of the river.

About 700kms away from home, I found this man talking to me in all #languages he had up his sleeves. Wanting to live outside the hustle bustle of #jodhpur, I booked a nice #mud hut for myself in a village nearby, Salawan. His #stories like this #mustache; proud and full of twists and turns. His words; cozy like my grandmother's lap. His #family became my #friends and are a part of my #Facebook friend list and #whatsapp list now. For once, I did not want to share what I was there for; all I wanted to learn is what drives them, what their stories and colors are and how they make #Rajasthan the most hospitable state in India. Keeping up with their traditions, they cook basic food and #spicy chutnies.
They introduced me to the bishnoi #community who are the guardians of the flora and fauna in the villages and were the leaders in the chipko movement back in 1973. We spotted blackbucks and beautiful birds around the village, spotted many mustache-men with #colorful #turbans and roamed about in a #jeep. ..

As a partying gift the daughter in law of the family, handed over a jar of some of the lip smacking chilly garlic paste that I ate with my Punjabi food back at home. Makes me reminisce my time in the desert. #inthailand #livethere

Rorschach test is still considered to be one of the best indicators of how a human minds think based on what the human eyes see. So tell me, what do you see ?
Did you remember when you lost your mind like Gnarls or what do you think you are ?
Tell me what do you see when you look at this picture. A cobweb made out of wood that gasps your soul and denies its freedom? Do you the small little light on one of the edges suggesting some hope ? Is it some hope? Or is it the light receding and at its final stages ? Tell me what do you think for I think it's all a lost cause.

Can I be just like you?
Smile like you?
Dance like you?
Be happy like you?
Storm like you?
Lush green like you ?
Spreading maddening happiness like you?
Ecstatic love just like you?

Keeping your mindfulness and behaving considerately is all it takes to come to enjoy and appreciate the human life. .
.
And everything else you have, you don't need it. share it so that someone who is not so fortunate, cherishes it. So that you leave this earth becoming even more fortunate than you were when you came here.
All the things you think you want and you have to have. All the inconvenience you cause yourself and all the ones around you in pursuit of materialism. .

They are not worth anything. .
So the next time you're plugged in. You're "here". You're in the moment, ask yourself, "what is it exactly that I need?" That's the time, precisely the time you will get the answer. And it will last briefly. Make sure you catch it. Understand it. And act upon it.

Most of the times I am #bleh and then this ✨ .
It takes mindfulness to come to life. Mindfulness is a virtue. A chance to be part of this happens briefly. The invitation is not to show how imaginative and creative you are. But, how much do you notice ! The happiness and sadness of the ones around. You'll know all things breathing around you. You'll know. You'll know. .

Dear diary,

Travel tip no. 1: no expectations. None at all. Just leave for a place have the commute booked and that is it.
The city will unfold itself like you've never thought seen or read. Gokarna is so talked about its beaches and hippie culture. Frankly, I could not find any hippies. And the beaches were amazing but not the ones mentioned in the articles. The ones we got off off our rented scooty for. We got off to see and just cherish the beautiful gokarna roads and trails that take your breathe away as you drive. We got off to see a village life living nearby a beach. We got off to visit temples. Got off to just sit and be. Got off to see this beautiful house. Right in the middle of nowhere. There is no direction to this building written anywhere. But, for me it was one of the best spots to just sit and think about the blue sky and how lucky am I to sit on a beautiful groomed grass. .
.
Just the silence and solace of the hidden gokarna was the best part for me.

My pretty in pink
Waiting here in vain
For the first drop of the showers
That will wash out the pain
.
Maybe I can relate to the kid
More than I relate to the reflections
Maybe I can trust more, the kid
More than I want my love to be broken
.
My pretty in pink
For a playmate I wait
Surrounding my life with wisdom
My merlin, my wizard, I guess you're a bit late
Arriving precisely on time
You promised all souls
Where did you go merlin?
When Arthur had those goals ?
.
Return back to the love
To the valleys and to the flowers
My eyes have been waiting
For the first drop of the showers

These ties you throw into the #fire
#Old #lies will never bring you higher
Our #love is only get tired
I am only getting tired now
If something isn’t better
Why wait, for you to drop a #ladder
Why wait, you’re only getting #older
It’s too late to throw over the shoulder
I say, this is no #disaster
But I know I wouldn’t put it past her
To hold on, forever to the old her

And then a fresh cup of coffee at an odd hour is what I would desire because that's what I been exposed to on television, cinema, friends family and then the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. really ? .
.
I mean why would you associate anything to do with me by how many times or how strong my coffee is? I can drink #espresso today and a #masala tea #tomorrow. But really why be so aggressive on the game of judging a human being so severely by what he eats, drinks , wears.
Don't you think it's all sold to you. We are all premature babies of our own demise. This is a big loop of illusion of possession that the world has thrown us into.
All I really need is to be #happy and that too is forced on me by everyone else. I mean why do I really have to make desperate attempts of making myself feel better ? Why do I have to deal with substandard #happiness everyday if the world out there can give me what I need. Just because I can't go there, means I need to find happiness in the "little things" of my little life that doesn't even matter in the bigger scheme of things. .

What have you come to India for?
- a #spiritual #journey
I looked through the foreigner with a haze in her eyes, and knew she was not joking. Yashodha had escaped her comfortable life in #Germany to live a life of a devotee in Vrindavan. I did not believe her when she said it was the best feeling to be lost in something that just breathes in the air, a feeling that just has a soul and not a body. I did not believe her explanation of spirituality up until, multiple years later, I walked down the old #ahemdabad lanes at #midnight.
