It was Ashima who first took me there and the aura was just captivating. I am talking about a café in Palampur city, Kangra District Himachal Pradesh. On your way to Baijnath, you might catch a glimpse of this café if you observe on your right hand side. About the aura, the place was filled with positive vibes, a café with a seating for around 20 people at the most, Dhauladhar ranges in picturesque view in front of you and the entire city is to be seen.
I was curious about how they started it; I have always liked people who had the nerves to go beyond the usual stable things. After my first few visits I asked them how they took the first step and how has the journey been so far. It was already dark by the time I started asking questions but the good part was there were hardly any customers so we had all the time. I should also introduce Mini, a very important part of their lives also an important team member of the café, but let us keep this for the end. ;)
The next we visited them was after around 4 days in the evening and the best was there was no electricity, unnecessary lights were already off. It was a full moon while talking to the owners I had a glimpse of the moon through pine needles and I just realised I was living a beautiful moment already under the moonlit sky without technology, candle light, good people, good music, guitars and Mini! What else could I have asked for that evening! Overwhelming is the word. Disconnected with the world as If nothing can stop from what you want to do, no opinions just a chill life. Well, I had a nice evening. The conversation kept on going. Parav poured in his views too, Parav is the friend of Arun and Amit who works with them to create delicious dishes and lip smacking shakes at their beautiful dreamy café.
