In most cases, south Indians are stereotyped to be conservative and not so well with Hindi language. But in my case, its’ all reversed. I visited Sandhan Valley near Nashik, Maharashtra along with 48 strangers. It was a group trip organised by ‘Mysterious Rangers’. All their mother tongue was Marathi and eventually it became the medium of communication. I tried to understand it to some extent though. These factors spiced up the trip making it more exciting. It was only two of my colleagues from the passengers whom I knew when the bus started from Pune at 9:00 PM on Saturday.
