How about getting a slight glimmer of it? Some time back on my first trip to the Badrinath, my heart was filled with excitement to behold the mighty and majestic Himalayas. By the time we reached the base camp of Joshi math, I was overwhelmed by the first glimpse of snow capped peaks near the horizon. In the next two hours we reached the holy town of Badrinath and sun had wrapped itself in the blanket of darkness and the sky was overcast. In a casual conversation with a dhabawala, I enquired about some of the breathtaking views from Badrinath. Pointing at the western horizon which was obscured by mist, he said with a chuckle, "Be ready to lose yourself when you see that side tomorrow morning." I was curious to know but he replied with an all knowing smile.
