Radhanagari 1/undefined by Tripoto


Neha Inaskar
The last day of the trip – the return journey. We started at 9 O’clock in the morning and planned to travel through Kolhapur – Satara –Pune – Mumbai Highway. There was a Ponda ghat and Radhanagri ghat – again a wonderful merry-go-round type of roads. We had a break at Kolhapur. We took darshan at Mahalaxmi Temple, bought some typical kolhapuri chappal and started our journey again. Once more on the roads and as usual I was lost in it. The road has its own life. When you are on the road trip, the unending roads become your friend and play with you, share stories with you. It gives time for you to go deep inside your mind. It provides some kind of meditation. The narrow or the wide, the bumpy or the smooth, whatever road it is; it is always pleasant to traverse by. It is some kind of intangible feeling that we could feel. Roads are not only for about commuting from one place to the other; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. The perfect road journey is never finished; the goal is always just to cross the next river bridge, round the shoulder of the next mountain. There is always one more track to follow, one more mirage to explore. “What you’ll get in return is an experience that money can’t buy.”
