This trip was planned after I had a major fallout with my friends whom I thought would stay there with me forever (how teenagers call it - My BFFs). Never had I thought that our forever would be short lived. It became hard for me to face them everyday in office. Each day I felt a void in me and I wanted to run away to some far away place.
In order to calm my mind down, I asked my friends to plan a trip. Soon there was a WhatsApp group because planning a trip is incomplete without creating a WhatsApp group for it. After several suggestions in our group named "Chalo trip karte hai" (Let's go on a trip), we finally stopped at Kasol-Kheerganga.
October 22,2015 - October 23, 2015:
We boarded the ordinary HPRTC bus from Kashmere Gate ISBT till Bhunter at 8:30 PM. After 14 hours of that tiresome bus journey we reached Bhunter. I couldn't feel my legs below my waist. I thought that we have reached our destination but that was not the end, we had to take another bus from Bhunter to Kasol. That meant, another one hour journey.
*After one hour *
We reached our destination - KASOL (India's little Israel). We checked into our hotel. Freshened up and walked down to the market place. We explored the market and found this café named Evergreen Café. There I witnessed people of different color, caste and nationality bonding over a joint. It was such a calm and happy place, bustling with lot of youngsters. We ordered the non-veg Israeli platter and Jesus, that food was mind blowing. We ate gluttonously like we've never seen food before, at least not like the one's that was served here.
