We all must have gone through the times when we loved listening to the fairy tales from our grand parents and the most interesting one's for me when it was about the mountains and history.I was always fascinated by the high rise peaks of Himalayas due to the fact as I was born and raised in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh. It's a small town based in Kangra Valley - Famous for it's Tea Gardens.
This is not just about the city rather it's more about what I have learnt from this lockdown. Well it's not just learning , but for me this lockdown seems as a blessing/a break from the lazy lifestyle which we all carry in the cities.
22nd March was the day when I drove back to my parents place from Jalandhar city ,Punjab almost 160 kms from my home towards the North. My life has always been full of travel Since, I pursued for completing my post graduation from Canada. And then I have been travelling extensively from Canada to US to India. Africa, Nepal ,Bhutan, Bangladesh, U.A.E and many more for work which I would talk about later as that's not what we are discussing here. What I experienced is when we travel for work it's not the same fun as we plan a holiday.
Mostly we have the best experience from Solo trips where we learn more about our individual personality and give space to develop our thoughts."Shehar just ek majboori hai but man to pahado mei hi basta hai hamesha" jisne bhi kaha hai biklul sach kaha hai 👌.
So, from 22 nd March 2020 onwards my life changed in a lot of ways. "Early to bed Early to rise, Makes a person Healthy, wealthy and Wise". Yes, I believe we all must have gone through this moto in our family but never really believed until we experience it in real life. For me it was always like kya hai ye muhaware and all....never really was a fan of muhawaras🤪 but trust me it's all about experiences.
My mornings changed during the lockdown and it started with a cup of " lemon tea" with fresh tulsi leaves from my Mom's kitchen garden. Thanks to "Maa" who makes me feel like a kid, no matter the age keeps moving ahead. This is just a stepping stone towards having a healthy life.
