When the Road Beckons – Ravi Manoram

When the Road Beckons by Ravi Manoram is a travelogue of a man who takes the epic journey from Delhi to Ladakh on his Royal Enfield Thunderbird covering places like Srinagar, Kargil, Leh, Nubra Valley, Pang, Pangang Tso lake, Manali and the 5 passes Zoji La, Khardung La, Chang La, Rohtang La and Barcha La Passes. While the book, appears to be the story of a man riding his bike on the difficult roads of the Himalayas, it is also an exploration of true meaning of one’s life. Ravi’s journey to the difficult terrains of the Himalayas tested his nerves and made him fight with his deepest fears. This, in turn, helped him to find out not only his inner strength, but also transformed his personality. His innermost fears slowly but surely vanished, and he became a person who is capable of controlling his own destiny.

Some way or another, the author has managed to write different stages of his journey to the region of Ladakh without creating a monotonous tone. He has the power of observation, certain elegance and a captivating style in his writing. All of these add up to the narrative and make this book a compelling read and kind of an addictive one, as there is the curiosity at the end of the chapter about what will happen next. There are certain moments in the book that will take your breath away. The description of places has been done in such a way that you feel like you are actually travelling to these places. You imagine those places in your mind while taking a break from reading and clung to those imaginations for a long time. This book is a jewel for anyone who has been to Leh before, as it is sure to get all those cherished memories back again.
