Each one of us have few exotic places (on this earth) very close to our heart and mere mention of that place makes us fresh and buoyant. Shimla has the distinction of one such place in my life.
Couple of months ago, I came to know about “running and living Half Marathon at Shimla in Sept.2016 and could not resist the temptation to register for this run. To participate in the run, started from Delhi on Friday night by Kalka mail and further to Shimla by tiny yet cozy Rail motor car. Thrill of journey from Kalka to Shimla is exponential rather than linear, as you approach Shimla excitement increases sharply.
Weather was pleasant as expected in Shimla in the month of September. Having collected the run T-shirt and Bib from famous Ashiana Hotel on Mall road, decided to explore Shimla.
