The lives of the people living in metro cities are divided into three major phases – first, when they spend years in city and blend with the chaotic, mechanical life; second, when they realize that there is life beyond city-life and then the rest of life, the third phase, when they spend every day looking for a way to get out from the city and travel to unknown places. I guess, I have entered the third phase. While growing up in Delhi, I had made myself used to the daily chaos and rigid lifestyle until the day when I went up to the state of Jammu and Kashmir for College studies. Spending five years, completing my bachelors in architecture, amidst the foothills of Himalayas was enough time for me to understand what lies ‘beyond’ the city life. That’s how I got habitual of craving for mountains. Last year, during the long Dusshera vacations, my craving for going back to hills reached its peak and I decided to leave for Uttarakhand with a backpack, some winter clothes, my camera and a selfie-stick.
