Away from our cubic farms, its a whole world out there to explore. And one April morning some genuine god heard all my prayers and struck a lightning through my head telling me I deserved a beautiful getaway! We are all one in our need and greed and often we (peeps from Delhi) end up visiting same old places, telling same old stories. I was a little apprehensive about the fact that Kasol is an oft repeated and exploited destination but I trusted my dragonfly eyes to see something new and took the godforsaken HRTC bus.
Here are some summertime stories from Kasol, photographs from all corners of the town as I abused a camera for two days running in circles, overjoyed.
1. Of Apple Orchards and Serenity
When the morning light made me discover, what surrounded me and I had itchy feet to explore more.
A closer look at the apple tree flowers in full bloom.
Glimpse of the new saplings midst the flowers.
Serene pathways to walk and think of all the good things in the world.
2. Of Riverside Musings And Morning Sun
This gushing Parvati river has something for all of us. A river bank to muse by and cold water to wake up your toes.
A hot water spring on one side and cold water chill on the other. This is where all the madness of the town comes from.
...And then you find some camera-ready friends.
3. Of Quaint Houses and Delightful Eateries
Just so you know. This is a house full of beautiful bookshelves.
God came down one day and placed this red-bricked house where it is.
Wait for the Israeli food frenzy to take over and relish.
Sepia-tinted cafes. Isn't that something we all dream about?
This is what perfect happiness looks like.
4. Of The Trip and The Trippy
And ofcourse. Kasol gives you a trip of a lifetime.
Shopping time my friends.
The whole town is a canvas waiting for your mad soul to throw some colors.
5. Of Silent Midnight and Pancakes
You go blind with joy when you watch french crepes being prepared for you.
Snickers for dinner. Every lazy person's dream.
What your love looks like.
