Trekking to Deoriatal by Anupa Parkhi
Life is changing, the earth’s heating up and so are the seasons shifting their imminent schedules; courtesy – global warming. Summer seems like the only season that goes on throughout the year. This year’s summer seemed to go on foreverrrrr and made me head to the mountains in the month of November, which is quite unlikely of a Mumbaikar (being not accustomed to winters) like me.
Trek to Chandrashila peak by Suresh Chandrashekaran
The trek got off to a totally ‘auspicious’ start for me. Hitherto, I had made it a habit of falling a couple of times while on trek. This time, I managed to do it in the bathroom the night before I was to take the train to Haridwar, which was the first step of the trek.
I walk into the bathroom, turn right and the next thing I know, my feet are in the air, my fundament lands with a thud on the ground and a cracking noise behind me heralds the fact that a bucket has met an untimely demise.
