I wanted to share my experience with you all about my recent trip to Uttarakhand. It is rightly called as Devabhoomi, such a wonderful place to be in if you are looking for a break from your regular activities. The roads throughout the state are absolutely fantastic (1/n)
Riding a bike or self-driving a car would be even more enjoyable with some nice curves. After getting down at Dehradun, we were going to a scenic place called "Kanatal". This is the place where the chance of snow is very high, it is approx 85 km from Dehradun. (2/n)
By the time, we reached the homestay at Kanatal, the temperature was single digit. The caretaker helped us with Bon Fire to settle initially and served us a hot hot dinner. Dinner menu - Chap, dhal, rice, mattar paneer, curd and pickle. (3/n)

All the coverage on Joshimath will show you visuals of haphazard construction n tilted homes with cracks, n also build a narrative that it is the main reason for the disaster. That’s half the truth and a coverup exercise, to protect the main CULPRIT. ++
No doubt there is unplanned and haphazard construction in the region, and it does impose a ‘heavy’ load on the area, beyond the carrying capacity of the terrain. Ideally, any development and urbanization strategy should consider acceptable levels of risk. #joshimath ++
Main CULPRIT is the devt model pursued in Uttarakhand, in fact in entire Himalayan region, starting from Dharamshala to Arunachal, the large-scale infrastructure projects posing threat to fragile Himalayan ecosystem. #JoshimathIsSinking ++

Don't wait for other hill towns to undergo the same challenges Joshimath is experiencing right now. Joshimath serves as an example, and we must take note of its lessons. Alternative energy sources can be found , but it is impossible to model a place with with enormous historical
values , a place where we were born and raised can't be remodeled once gone @pushkardhami @Anoopnautiyal1 @PMOIndia @narendramodi #Joshimath #JoshimathIsSinking #Joshimathcrisis

I finally went on my first-ever solo trip. How did this girl who has been timid most of her life, do this? Well if I have to sum it up in one word - regret - I didn't want to die with a regret. A regret doing nothing to make my dream come true.

So what was my dream? How did I do this trip? Read on to know more...


Since the time I was 15 years old (which is 21 years ago) I've wanted to meet #RuskinBond. We had a story #TheCherryTree from one of his books. This was the first Ruskin Bond story I read and since that day in 2001, I thought I'll meet him someday.
