Hot tea at a cool place

There is something 'special '  in 'rains' that makes everyone smile .For different reasons though . 

During one my recent travel trips , we took a detour , stopped our  vehicle at a small -kind a cute , well lit and neat tea stall . Normally or abnormally I like being spontaneous - it helps in more than ways . Breaks free from the otherwise stressed and strained life and also helps you do things you want to , for sure. 

As we entered the tea stall , a middle aged server smiled at us , greeted us in the local dialect and made sit in the ' best area ' that was available . This spot was overlooking a beautiful white water fall coming from lush green mountain ranges with white snow capped peaks . 

People in this part of the world ,love 'putting in a lot of sugar ' , dil kholke . The tea was amazing and he served fresh home made momo's  steamed .   Possibly the best tea snack I ever had . 




It was pouring cats and dogs but thats how life is in the mountains .…

Have you ever seen a small child holding onto her father tightly while he drives a two wheeler? While the father battles the streets and ensures he drives safe, he however has no one to hold onto but his steering handles.  The child however is unaware of what all the roads bring.

Time surely moves on . At times during my travels I often wonder we as human beings take breaks or vacations to stop from our daily routines . In a way trying to give time a break . 
Yet , time itself never takes a break . Its always on , always moving irrespective of what one is thinking or doing . It silently keeps on ticking .  Suddenly , you are excited for your long planned vacation making 'plans' on what all to do and then next on a working morning you are actually discussing 'how' the vacation was. 
So many people all across the world , so many life's moving in parallel and in between time just skips heart beats all around us.




I met a small girl ,around 7 in of my 'flight' tours . She was a little cranky but when we started discussing Jungle book her face lit up ; bright and shiny.  You re-look at your childhood and imagine that you were a really nice and 'chup-chap'  kid and yet here she is - all talking , all talking cute filled with innocence…
