I took a whopping 1000 photos from my phone and from other mountaineers. I was very happy when I showed those photos to my parents and they saw them on 40 inch LCD screen. It felt like I was in the moment.

I feel I live better in the moment when I am with my phone. The idea of being in constant mobile network links to safety as well. Especially for solo travelers. You could schedule your plans, book your travel, and find an old friend nearby, search the best holiday destination, record all the sweet and happy moments, learn everything about the place you are traveling to. It is fun to venture into the unknown, but the unknown often requires constant vigilance.
With this idea, I started noting down the network location on Western Ghat treks as well. So, whenever I am on any Nature Walkers trek from Bangalore I would tell them to call their loved ones when we reach that location. For Example:-
Some of my recordings.
Ask for these locations whenever you are in any Nature Walkers Trek. As a trekker, I have noted these locations and shared with the Outdoor leaders so that even they can use these locations. Also, do share with your friends, if they travel alone.
The Indian government's website claims that over 50,000 villages without network will be connected by 2018. Great initiation, I must say, I would like the idea that I live in an era where every corner of India is connected with every other corner of India. Jai Hind.
Technology has evolved for our betterment and being a part is a contribution in the tribute to the old inventions. Thank you.
