They say birds of a feather flock together. This couldn’t be further from the truth when it comes to my best friend, Aparna, and I. We are complete opposites of each other. While she’s impulsive, I need to plan everything to the T. She can’t stop talking and I’m more of an observer. She likes the fast-paced city life and I love the solitude of mountains.
Our different personalities mean that our preferences too are starkly different. So, last week as I was planning a trip to Hamta, a secluded village in Himachal, I was met with disapproving eyes.
I decided to take this as a challenge and make a city girl fall in love with the mountains!
