Nupur Kedia
After a detour to Badoab, the farthest point we could access before the army restricted us from going any further, we traveled up to the village of Malangam, along with a Bakarwal family, who are nomadic herders that live high up in the mountains. Since the place has no hotels, the Sarpanch, Beig Ji took it upon himself to offer us accommodation, and was at his hospitable best. We feasted on meat and locally grown rajma preparations that night, and watched not one, but two shooting stars travel across the sky, with the gurgling sound of the river breaking the stillness of the scene, making for the perfect end to our trip.
