It’s not everyday that someone who hates anything colder than Mumbai’s winter decides to go on a winter trek in the Himalayas. But Ananya Mody went on the trek and what she experienced taught her many life-lessons. Ananya presents her trek to Kedarkantha in a beautiful perspective in her blog, Getting High – 2016 at 12,500 ft.
Here’s an excerpt:
I refuse to have a mundane existence. I believe in tasting the air that I breathe as it knocks the wind out of my lungs. I choose not to succumb to routine which I have seen far more closely than I would have liked to. Change is the master I respect, whose path I follow. And when I notice a pattern forming, a cycle taking shape, I realise that it is time I take a lesson from my master again.

Congrats Ananya! Hope you get to brave many more fears in future! (Also, hope you can perfect your snow angel the next time!)
