In the summer of June 2017, I went to visit Shimla, with my hubby and baby. After my marriage in December 2014, I go to visit Ujjain as my first trip that too with my in-laws. Though it was I, who wanted to visit Mahakaleshwar, Ujjain, I longed for our honeymoon. Finally in the summer of 2017 we go the opportunity to go to Shimla for a week’s stay. We took Kalka Shatabdi to Kalka – which was a short journey of around 5 hours, spent eating and eating – and from there onward took toy train. Everything being a first for me was extremely enchanting and memorable. The slow moving train was rapidly taking me to a world of wonder and joy.

हिन्दुस्तान में एक कहावत है कि अगर लोग अच्छे हो तो देश भी अच्छा होता है और ऐसे ही कुछ अच्छे लोगो से मेरी मुलाकात हुई उड़ेरी, सोमेश्वर, उत्तराखंड़ में। यह मौका मुझे तब मिला जब मेरे बचपन के दोस्त हरीश ने मुझे और अरुण को अपने गाँव आने का निमंत्रण दिया। बात दिसम्बर 2008 की है, मै और अरुण दोनो ही अपनी पढाई काँलेज मे कर रहे थे और हमारे पास घूमने का पर्याप्त समय था, इसलिए हमने इस निमंत्रण को स्वीकार किया और सराय काले खाँ से सोमेश्वर से होकर जाने वाली बस पकड़ ली। तब हमें कुछ ₹250 की टिकट लेनी पड़ी। सफर नीरस ही होता, अगर अरुण का पेट शान्त रहता, पर हमेशा की तरह उसके पेट को कुछ रोमांचक करना था। जैसे ही पहाड़ो में बस पहुंची, अरुण को प्रकृति का बुलावा आ गया।

On third day we visited another nice and beautiful place i.e ‘Namchi’ in south Sikkim. It is perhaps the most attractive of the entire places is the CharDham. It is located on top of a hill known as the ‘Solophok Hill’ with a big Shiva statue surrounded by 12 Jyotir-lingas. Flanked on all sides by the replica of Char-Dham temples i.e Badrinath Dham, Dwarka Dham, Rameshwar Dham and Puri’s Jaganath Dham. The place is a big tourist attraction.

Those are the very words that echo in my brain whenever the memory of Nathula, Sikkim returns to me. It was part of the fitting reply that a soldier guarding the Indo-China Border at Nathula gave to a ridiculous query of one tourist among us. The naive or perhaps ignorant tourist had asked what would happen if someone accidentally or unintentionally stepped on the other side of the border. Had the question come from a kid, even an adolescent, it would have sounded reasonable. The reply of the soldier in this context summed up the significance of respecting mutual borders. It also made evident the huge responsibility that soldier on both sides are shouldering.

On our way to Mussoorie we got hungry and decided to eat something. We stopped by a road side kiosk as we didn’t wish to wait for a better option. I do not remember the name of that stall but I surely remember that it was where I had the worst ‘Maggie’ ever. I was appalled as well as disgusted on learning that there are people who could screw a simple ‘2 Minute Noodle’.

The village is also knows as Mini Israel of Himachal for its rich heritage and strong Jewish history. As per official records, among all foreigners visiting Kasol, above 70% are from Israel. Even the signboards are in Hebrew that indicate their love for this place. A lot of groups of Israeli Backpackers can be spotted at this place. A heaven for people looking for Hash (Hashish). You can openly smoke Hash without the fear of getting into legal troubles. The song that came to my lips ………………हर फिक्र को धुएं में………………हर फिक्र को धुएं में उड़ाता चला गया…(legendary Devanand Saheb).
