Badrinath and beyond

11th May 2011

Badrinath is counted in the beautiful places on the earth. I say its a heaven. You can go by private vehicles or the by the government buses. I was 19 year old that time. I set foot in Haridwar,one of the holy place for Hindu in India. Badrinath was about 450km from Haridwar.When I and my friends was about to take a bus it was full of passengers. There were no seats available. I thought the journey was gonna cancel right before it start.  But something happened for a moment and situation was changed like some kind of a miracle. I still wonder that it was just a coincidence or magic. We got our seats in bus. Yeah! The bus which was full of passengers. And as the bus start to roll on the road, we were amaze after every seconds. Rishikesh  was the first stop. I heard the english voice  which was calling from outside of the bus. He was saying that Is it the bus which is going for Badrinath?  Everyone said yes i still don't get how they understood him. When he enter into the bus I saw a tall man and he told us he is from Columbia. We had so much fun on this journey. Different types of songs including Punjabi, Haryani, Hindi,Marathi and some others also we didn't have a clue about.There were chantings of Hare Krishna Hare Ram. And yeah for our foriegn companions we played English songs. Even they dance on the song of Weaving flag which was quite popular then.
After 18 hours we reached our destination I.e, Badrinath.  Well for trekking what you need there is the proper guide and permission from the Indian military and yeah the proper equipments. We were just kids so we didn't know anything about that.  We started our journey for  Swarg Rohini.Well this is the place where stories says that It is possible to enter into the heaven where God lives. And we start our journey without a second thought without any anxiety. We walked whole day. Took shelter under the big rocks. Burn the bonefire. And the temperature was about minus. We were in the group of 5. We all of the same age. There were a moment when I thought I was gonna die. I had a problem of breathing. Well apart from that everything was ok. I saw the wild bulls. In the night time everything seems so blue under the light of moon. The moon was quite big from the average size. There were plenty of Waterfalls. And in the night I can clearly hear those Waterfalls which were miles away from us. What a blessing night that was ! I will never forget how peacefull that was.  For day 2, we had completed so much distance but due to some problems it wasn't possible to reach the destination that we have decided long before coming. When I was living we made a promise to ourselves that someday we will explore the place that they called Swarg Rohini.  Our journey ends and we head back for the bus. Plenty stuffs had happened and we reached our train right on the time which was from  Saharanpur . Our parents were already in the train waiting for us. For a second we thought we all gonna left behind.We caught our train by running with our luggage. If were late by minute back then I thought we would have missed our train. But we finally made it and took the breath of relief.  It was all magical experience. I still remember my promise and I am not the person who broke promises. I will see you again...

Badrinath is the place which is 265km from Rishikesh. It's the Best place so far I have ever been visited in my life. It's famous for the Temple but what people don't know is that its the heaven itself. It has the mythological story that there is the place where you can actually step in to the heaven with carrying your own body( well its our soul when u die). There is still so much things to explore.
