खुबसूरती ऐसी थी कि मेरी आँखें यहाँ से हटाए नहीं हटती थीं। सोचिए तस्वीर में जब इतनी ख़ूबसूरती दिख रही हो तो वास्तव में कैसी ख़ूबसूरती होगी। ये तस्वीर मैंने स्टोक कांगरी ट्रेक के दौरान खींची थी और उसके बाद आज ये फ़ोटो देख रहा हूँ। कई बार ऐसा होता है कि पुरानी तस्वीरें आपको बहुत सुकून देती हैं। ट्रेकिंग ने मुझे ये तो सिखा दिया कि अगर इंजरी हुई है तो उसका डटकर सामना करना है। एक ना एक दिन तो ठीक होना ही पड़ेगा। हर बार तो आप उस दर्द के साथ नहीं रह सकते। पहाड़ों के आगे आप एक दम तुच्छ होते हैं। पहाड़ की चढ़ाई असल में बहुत कुछ सिखा देती है। चढ़ाई के दौरान आपके धैर्य, शारीरिक ताक़त से ज़्यादा मानसिक ताक़त की परीक्षा होती है। अगर आप इसमें पास होते गए तो आप आगे बढ़ जाएँगे लेकिन फ़ेल होने पर पीछे हटना पड़ता है। एक बार असफ़ल हुए, फिर कोशिश की और इस बार सफलता हाथ लगी। मेरी राय में, इंसान को अपनी ज़िंदगी में नेचर hiking या ट्रेकिंग ज़रूर करनी चाहिए। ट्रेकिंग के दौरान कई ऐसे व्यूज़ आते हैं जिनकी मैं तस्वीरें नहीं खींचता हूँ लेकिन उन्हें अपने दिल में बसा लेता हूँ। #ladakh #ladakhtourism #ladakhdiaries #ladakh_lovers #ladakhadventure #lehladakh #natgeotravellerindia #natgeotravel #nature #naturephotography #naturegeography #clouds #likeforlikes #likeforlikes #mountains #mountainlife #love

"A Muslim Pilgrim Learns a Lesson in Piety from a Brahman", Folio from a Khamsa (Quintet) of Amir Khusrau Dihlavi

Poet:Amir Khusrau Dihlavi (1253–1325)

Calligrapher:Muhammad Husain Kashmiri (active ca. 1560–1611)

Artist:Painting by Basawan

Date:1597–98

Mughal dynasty, India

The Khamsa (Quintet) of the Indian poet Amir Khusrau Dihlavi localizes its model, the Khamsa of Nizami, by rooting several of the stories in an Indian idiom. Likewise, the illustrations made for Akbar’s (r. 1556–1605) copy are set in typically Indian landscapes. Here, a Muslim pilgrim to Mecca meets a Brahman who travels to a Hindu temple by inching his way in a series of prostrations. Impressed by this religious zeal, the Muslim removes his own shoes and continues on his way barefoot.

They might be thinking of us all that where those  people went?, who used to stuff us with their belongings and went for a trip/trek/travel outing. 
Our real travel partners and support during all our travel diaries might ask each other the above question for a change. Back packs are so essential for our travel plans or any out of station outings. We cannot have a good long travel without them. 
Are you missing your backpacks? Are you missing your travels? I damn miss them a lot. .

मेरा फलसफा कंधे पे मेरा बस्ता
चला मैं जहां ले चला मुझे रास्ता
बूंदों पे नहीं
बूंदों के समंदर पे वो.. ओ.. वोह.. इलाही मेरा जी आये आये..
इलाही मेरा जी आये आये.. हो.. .

I and my friend @himalayan__odyssey were walking down with our luggage and his  research instruments from Khab bridge (confluence of Sutluj & Spiti rivers) towards Pooh on NH 505 after some water testing & taking samples  from  Sutluj for my friend's PhD research. We walked about 4 Kms with all this luggage untill we got hitch hiked up to Pooh. .

Capture you,in my eyes
In the sea everything floats
Drifting away, place unknown
Capture you,in my arms
In the fire everything burns
To be something,no one knows
Capture your voice,Into my ear
Every sound disappears

Finally got an opportunity to travel after 80 days. 
We are all living in a bad time but with the hope that this too shall pass. I was stranded in Pune, Maharashtra one of worst affected areas (with COVID-19) in India. 
Since there wasn't a direct flight to my hometown so I had to take one with a layover at Delhi. 
Standing in a queue to catch my connecting flight to Kolkata I understood that we humans can endure anything - be it traversing over 1500 km on foot across states or going without food or water for 13 hrs at a stretch. 
Armed with a face shield, 2 masks and surgical gloves I left Pune airport on an Airbus A320. We went through several sanitisation processes. On reaching Delhi,  I found myself rushing through the arrival hall and ultimately made to the departure gate. It was while landing at 6:50 am at Kolkata airport on 30th May 2020,  I realized that I had forgotten to take neither a sip of water nor a morsel of food for the past 12 hrs. Reached home to find out that my hands had turned super dry due to those surgical gloves and burned when it came in contact with water or soap. It was almost on the verge of bleeding. 
I was shocked that I had strength to endure so much.

A floral fantasy of animals and birds (Waq-waq)

early 1600s

Mughal dynasty, India

Opaque watercolor and gold on paper

Description

Derived ultimately from a conflation of medieval Persian and Koranic sources, including descriptions of the mythical island of Waq-waq inhabited by half-plant/half-animal creatures, this extraordinary painting depicts a plant that brings forth animal life in multiple forms. Playfully rendered with animals both real and mythic and birds that seem to effervesce away as they break free of the stems, this brilliant rendition of a life-giving plant maintains its compositional integrity, even as it sprawls across the page. This painting was made to beguile courtly connoisseurs who would gather to admire the wondrous images in an imperial album.

Fun Fact

The dragon threatens to singe the boar’s beard.

CLOSE UP PATTERN SERIES - 5
Can you guess this pattern? Guess the animal?
__________
This close up patterns series is one of the most close to my heart as this taught me a lot about animal evolution. The patterns of animal skins are a part of their evolution and in many cases they represent a specific organ of that animal which has some specific functionality in balancing their lifestyle!
I have taken up a whole new perspective to look at my subject here and thats quite an amazing part of wildlife photography!

Posting throwbacks pictures is hard for me. It's a mixed emotion. I feel I enjoy the place twice if I write about it, but at the same time I miss going out even more as I write about travel these days. With my mind jogging up to write the little details, about the places I've been to in the past, the ache of not being able to step out deepens. It's not that I was always hitting the road, but I could when I wanted to. I guess what's unsettling is the uncertainty of being able to do it again. ⠀
⠀
Today, one such place, Kodanad view point in Kotagiri, has brought with it, to my memory, the pleasure of standing on one of its stone formations overlooking the Rangaswamy peak which frames the bottom of the background with its snaggy formations. Right below the peak a milky white Medanadu waterfall is washing its feet, as I tend my unruly hair blowing in the strong wind. ⠀
⠀
From where I am standing I witnessed a glimpse of the wilderness and the vastness of the Nilgiris. For a photo op I had to wait for my turn before the tourists, who came out of their beds a little ahead of me, were done with theirs. Amazingly, I didn't have to climb a hill for this view. In fact, I went down one, a little. ⠀
⠀
You can drive to Kodanad or hop on a bus to Kotagiri from Coimbatore. When you're at the pinned destination, you walk down the hill, along a dedicated path, which takes you to this view point which affords a breathtaking view of the lush landscape all around. Take your binoculars along, you might spot some wildlife from above. ⠀
⠀
Does that lake at the back have a name? Do you know about it? I don't. 🤷⠀ ⠀

Posting throwbacks pictures is hard for me. It's a mixed emotion. I feel I enjoy the place twice if I write about it, but at the same time I miss going out even more as I write about travel these days. With my mind jogging up to write the little details, about the places I've been to in the past, the ache of not being able to step out deepens. It's not that I was always hitting the road, but I could when I wanted to. I guess what's unsettling is the uncertainty of being able to do it again. ⠀ ⠀ Today, one such place, Kodanad view point in Kotagiri, has brought with it, to my memory, the pleasure of standing on one of its stone formations overlooking the Rangaswamy peak which frames the bottom of the background with its snaggy formations. Right below the peak a milky white Medanadu waterfall is washing its feet, as I tend my unruly hair blowing in the strong wind. ⠀ ⠀ From where I am standing I witnessed a glimpse of the wilderness and the vastness of the Nilgiris. For a photo op I had to wait for my turn before the tourists, who came out of their beds a little ahead of me, were done with theirs. Amazingly, I didn't have to climb a hill for this view. In fact, I went down one, a little. ⠀ ⠀ You can drive to Kodanad or hop on a bus to Kotagiri from Coimbatore. When you're at the pinned destination, you walk down the hill, along a dedicated path, which takes you to this view point which affords a breathtaking view of the lush landscape all around. Take your binoculars along, you might spot some wildlife from above. ⠀ ⠀ Does that lake at the back have a name? Do you know about it? I don't. 🤷⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #nikontakez #nikonasia #natgeotravellerindia #kotagiri #tamilnadu #tamilnadutourism #ooty #udhagamandalam#bbctravel #cntravellerindia #31daysofsummer #lpmitravels #tnlindia #kodanadu #rangaswamypeak #medanadu #waterfall #landscapephotography
It was a sunny day in Delhi, and this is how sun looked at me. 😄
.
While traveling in the city like Delhi, such a place would make you stop for a moment and let you find your inner soul. All you need to do is sit relaxed and think about all the good things happened in your life. The very next moment you did this, your mind would fill up with a lot of positive vibes.

My body was all tired 😫 but my mind was strolling😇 in the last Indian village, Mana. It was racing and dancing. I had heard a lot about it. This is the beginning of the journey of my soul.#manapass
