Himachal Pradesh is my favourite place on the face of this earth. Not that I've traveled the entire world, but a person picks his favourites from the life he has loved. And for me, Himachal Pradesh is the answer to most of my life's issues. I have been accused of continuously telling all my friends that I am a fortunate soul to have been born in the capital of the country; not because I'm a proud Delhiite, but because of Delhi's vicinity to Himachal Pradesh. Just an overnight journey and one is there in the lap of the most beautiful mountains and serene nature. Mcleodganj has been my personal favourite even though I've been to a lot of "unexplored" places as well in the state.
Some time ago, I stumbled upon some photos from the archives that make me cringe from within over the issue of commercialization of the state. Yes, tourism is the bread & butter of a lot of cities in the state, but then it's a pity on how we, "travelers," have spoilt the sanctity of this sublime place. As a testimony to my claims, I share with you 11 pictures of Himachal Pradesh's from the days of yore that prove that our generation may have missed out on what real mountainous beauty looks like.
