Week End Trek Himalaya

News Dharamsala - Week-End Highs..Trek Himalayas, Dharamsala News,June 17,2008

This was in the month of October, when the alpine flowers are in full bloom and clear starry skies decorate the snow covered mountain peaks. We had some family friends and leaving everything behind we went up for a small Himalayan soft trek. Up there we could hear the sounds of the cuckoos, the melody of the hidden streams and with it all the 'stress burn' faded away.

We laughed, pitched our tents..cooked outdoor meals which had no recipes, played cards, confided as friends and slept under a starry sky. For your next week-end pick any place outside in the hills or forest and take time off in a place where time does not exist.

News Dharamshala - Week-End Highs & Moody Blues, Dharamsala News,June 08,2008

This was in the summer of 2004. We had just shifted into our new home - Vidya Niwas. We were exhausted  with all our packings cluttered around the place.We came across an old cardboard box. There were some old cards, an autograph book and most of all plenty of old music cassettes of Hindi classics and the early English hot favourites. With the kind of energy only children can have, immediately my son went and played the music. As the melodies of Beatles, Paul Anka, Neil Diamond...along with memorable songs of Geeta Dutt flowed in, so did our exhaustion die out. We were on a different 'high' as the collection was from our college. A week-end discovering yourself with your kids and your hobbies!

News Dharamsala,'Social Club' Tales, May 22, 2008, Dharamsala News

As, Iam not a member of any Social Club today I miss my childhood days of social integration and togetherness. I remember, during the Monsoons my father was working for the Irrigation Department (Uttar Pradesh)..while he was always worrying about the flood levels, we children thought there was nothing better than 'dancing in the rain'! We made our own social club where each one of us were assigned a duty on a certain day. Unfortunately for me my German Shepherd dog - Sherry, had torn all the library books which had to be returned to the 'Hobby Corner'. I remember all of the club members coming together repairing the books so that they could be returned on TIME !
