I hate them.

2013 was a life changing year. At 23, with an expanding consciousness, I travelled for the first time. It has been a love affair with nature since then.

So, yes. Cities. I hate them. October, 2014. I packed my bag and set off to Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, leaving the city clatter of Delhi-NCR behind. Hinduism - coupled with spirituality - has always intrigued me. It has shaped the Indian culture like the Ganges shaped the Himalayan foothills. I wanted to know. I wanted to experience. I wanted to feel.

Rishikesh was a beautiful experience for me. Never been to the place before, I was really excited to explore the spiritual and and the serene atmosphere that envelopes the riverbank.
