But my journey didn’t start on a good note. I fell under the weather and my tonsils swelled, followed by Fever. There was a time I seriously felt if I will be able to carry on like this for Kailash. You need a level of fitness to be able to complete this trail, especially the Parikrama around the Mount Kailash. But one of the things which really triggered and de-motivated me was the reactions I got from my friends with whom I shared the news. Barring one or two who were supportive, others asked me Why Kailash? Or why Atleast NOW?
Since Kailash Mansarovar Yatra carries the tag of being the pilgrimage for older people, I was suggested that at this age I should be doing better things and rather should be exploring the more rare part of the world. So, while I didn’t have much to say that time but now, when I am back experiencing it all by myself, here are my reasons- Why I chose to be at Kailash Mansarovar Yatra and feels that you should also do it NOW:
It is a journey of FINDING YOUR STRENGTH: Sometimes it really baffles me to think that how quick we are to label or tag a place, without realising its worth. Believe me when I say that we- the human beings- do not realise our potential. We do not realise how powerful our mind is, that it can actually get us whatever we desired in our lives, ever.
