In an enrapture edges of benevolent mountains lies a package of wilderness- KAS PATHAR, the valley of flowers followed by KAS LAKE an idyllic beauty.
‘I need a break’…the very sentence we tend to use lately whenever we get the feeling of desideratum, and in my case, it was to Explore. Saturday night when I got rid of my exams I packed my backpack and headed towards the door,
Where are you planning to go?
I replied, saying the legendary sentence (in a dramatic manner)
Mother, I need a break and so I am heading to my cloudland which I just heard about to deeply get lost into the beauty of our nature, to find a place where I find no one…just me admiring the beauty of our mother nature. (exaggerated version of reply)
Mother giving me an angry stare
(puppy face) I replied, I am going to grandma’s place Satara.
Okay, come before college starts, and shuts the door on the face. (strange reaction no questions asked: D)
So, my journey began took a bus to Satara and 7 hours later- voila -destination reached. I commenced my ride towards kas plateau which is 25 km away from Satara. The winding roads were full of surprises, added with lush green all around gave a picturesque view till the end of the journey. Listening to Coldplay song ‘Miracles’ really struck a chord in me and made me realize how beautiful and simple our life is, all you have to do is go with the flow…
