My friend Arif always says, if you not only measure or feel but to inhale the beauty, you have to visit a state at least twice despite of your previous experience. Because second visit always change your perception. we asks him how could you inhale beauty!? he lit and smooch his favorite flake, after inhaling a longgg puff into a fat lung his only one word, comes with a huge white fog of smoke through his mouth & nostril, is "Like that".

So we decided to visit Arunachal once again. Our last visit was tawang. But this time destination is "MECHUKHA" far north east of north east India. this is my first blog and it is about least explored location of north east by we Indians. the reason of writing this blog is having very little information of north east (especially eastern part of arunachal) on internet. Without any further intro let's start our journey to heaven...

Day 1

Day 1

Kishanganj railway station

In the first place our journey starts from our home town Burdwan, West Bengal to Arunachal. You will be surprised how we end up in kishanganj platform no 1. In this stage of our journey i named it train scandal.

Train scandal

We are 6 friends in our gang. Our married friend raghav recently got appointment at Lumding, Assam (around 200 km from guwahati). According our plan he will join us tomorrow at kamakhhya. Rest 5 of us starts our journey from Burdwan station at 2.30 pm on tebhaga exp. My name is siddharha. I want everything according to plan exceptional to arif. what a irresponsible guy he is.His only part was for train ticket booking. as usual due to his casual behavior he did not booked train ticket. having no option we decides for break journey. arif got 5 tickets on tebhagha exp from burdwan to malda, from where we will board on brahmaputra mail to kamakhhya junction tomorrow morning. we board on tebhaga exp at 2.30 pm. arif with his unashamed smile says relax guys everything is in under control. after a while our most jolly friend Gopal just screams by checking running status of brahmaputra mail which is 5 hrs late already. our 2nd married friend deva who is very short tempered guy. our journey starts with deva's temperament. deva gives threats to arif, i'll through you from running train. i whispers to gopal if he is not able to lift 93 kgs fatty we will surely help him. eventually arif find a long distance train (Svdk Kyq Express) from kishanganj (around 130 km from malda) to guwahati. we reached at malda on right time around 7.30 pm. our next struggle how could you reach kishanganj station at where our train will arrive on 1.30 am midnight.we have 2 option either by train a takes a cab. after a long "chai pe charcha" debate we decides to hire a cab. again its arif's turn to hire a cab for us because we know among us, he is very good in bargaining. after 10-15 mins sitting beside driver's seat he comes with ballu bhai driving an old maruti 800. our monster friend smoking 'bidi' and says come on guys hop on to ballu's BMW. we understand he brainwashed the local driver by his talking capability.

By the way our adventurous journey starts at sharp 9.30 pm outside malda station by a fucking old maruti 800 car. only arif and our brainwashed driver is confident to reach our destination on time. rest of us thinking we wil end up our journey anywhere in between malda and kishanganj. Around 10'o clock we take away our dinner ( rumali roti and tarka) from a roadside dhaba as we don't have much more time. outside there is dark pitch night, here and there little light can be seen like fireflies. Only visible part is 10m shitty raod in front from headlight of this shitty car. After completing his dinner jimmy asks ballu bhai i can't take anymore you just stop the car at anywhere where i can get my medication ASAP. We know what is his medication, gopal explains to ballu about his medicine. Ballu understands the situation and stop his shitty machine to a shop and tell us you can take away our medicine from here. Jimmy just jump out of the car and grab his 2 Lt medicine in two hands.

Day 4

Menchuka - Shangri La of North East

cool breeze coming through my left side window listening my favorite play list on my earphone. Our tata sumo riding through nude chest of wild arunachal. Lashing green goddess of untouchable beauty seducing me by dancing with his invisible partner of air. I am sitting in front enjoying the raw beauty till jimmy's hand shake my shoulder and shouted "JAHAPANA' don't forget we are also seating behind you to enjoy music and nature. Jimmy is our coolest guitarist friend. He is the last person to join in our plan from his busy schedule on my request. Actually he is not wanderer like rest of us . his only wish to seat on a cliff of snow covered mountain and play his guitar.

last night we planned to start at 7 am as we have to cover around 290 km in hilly region. When you have a guitarist friend and a loquacious person like arif in your gang special in hill station how could you sleep early in bed. As usual we just manage to starts our day at 10'o clock from aalo to our destination Mechukha, Scotland of India.
