After visiting so many places in Uttaranchal, I must say, I am enchanted still. This was nearly 3 years ago and just writing about it after so long, believe me when I say I am enchanted.
Well, it was our first weekend (Saturday was no classes), rather first get together for all the strangers in one class. At the beginning, I was very uncomfortable with my boys not around me. But as I already mentioned in my earlier articles, “Coming out of comfort zone can take you to unexplored places.” It was kind of like that. We decided to go on road on Friday night (22 July 2016), but being the month of July, the heavy rainfall made it impossible. Then the quick decision was made through our newly formed whatsapp group to go early morning on Saturday (23 July 2016).
As per the plan, the next day early morning, we started our journey in a 30 seater mini bus.Could you imagine, how simple games of Antaakshari and drum charade can make strangers behave the way they know each other since eternity, still surprises me. We become friends in no time and to some very close friend that we are still in touch. Just when we started ascending to the hills to reach Nainital, a heavy fog like clouds surrounded us, there was complete silence like we are trapped nothing to see forward. We stopped at the safe location with the sound of flowing water from the mountains. We drank it, the taste so pure. We took the advantage to click some pictures of us here. After a while we again started our journey. The Sun light was trying so hard to get out of the blanket of clouds and it seemed like a life saver to all of us. And we knew we have arrived to Nainitaal.
