Have you ever wondered why we need a vacation ? Well different people have different opine for this. For me it is just as a meditation kind. Cut off from the virtual world , throng into the unending roads and lost in the lap of nature perhaps the major driving source for me. It was a long weekend for holi. Winter was on the verge of departure and we were eagerly welcoming the spring. Like as usual, I was imponderable in deciding the place to visit. After so many brain exercises, I decided to visit Bhangarh -Fort. Well the name Bhangarh-fort is itself a big traffic in itself. It would be a huge unfair for me to go through the ancient facts about the fort. I and my friend Sourav had decided to leave for the fort so early in the morning to minimize the rush agony of traffic up to some extent.
There are two prominent ways to access Bhangarh fort. Either through NH8 and another through Alwar. I have been gone through Alwar highway before. So this time I was quite excited to take the longest route via NH8.
Ignoring the early morning winter effect just wearing a wind cheater I ignited the mighty thunderbird at 5am. It was still quite dark and pin drop silence of the moment echoed the sound to a far distance. We started our journey with a lot of expectations and desire in our mind. We have heard a lot of stories about the Fort before . That feeling of uncertainty whether the fort is worth for the hype it has created is making us crazy. Finally the long wait was going to turn into reality. With a lot of hope in our heart, we touched NH8. I maintained a average highway speed. After a few distance we took our first stop. The thing that I love more about NH8 is the mouth watering dhabas along the road side and its services. So far it was so chill in the morning. A cup of hot tea and paratha was working as a panacea against the odds.
