On 13 December 2014, we, four friends, started our journey from Delhi to Jim Corbett, rather till Riverine Woods- Van Ghat, which was 20 kms ahead of Jim Corbett. More than the forest reserve it was the place where we stayed which was mesmerizing. For the first time I took my own car for a trip and that too without driver. For the first time I drove on highways.
Rather than talking about the forest, greenery, the birds, the river, the star studded sky and the marvellous beauty of that place I want to talk about myself. It was the place where I could find myself, the insight into my thought process, into my needs and desires, into my happiness and sorrows, the insight into my life.
Off late I have been getting disturbed and irritated and easily hurt by the people around me, by their thinking and mentality. But then I realized that nobody is right or wrong. I just have to find people who are right for me. I understood that howsoever a person is behaving it's because of his environment and company and he is not to be blamed for anything. It is his ideology to behave in a particular manner which for me might not be right. This helped me in forgiving everyone. This helped me to gain my mental peace back.
Gazing at the star studded sky, a dark sky full of glittering lights and sometimes thunder in between, I cried my heart out. This is how life is, I suppose. Dark but shining and sometimes thunders in between. It was a great catharsis for me.
I realized the things which give me happiness and the things which make me depressed. I realized my mistakes and found out my strengths. I realised that the another chance which God has given me to live, I should make maximum out of it.
