More abt my trekking trip

So finally m upto writing something… n its abt my Himalayan trip…

V started off on 30th Oct’07 by Moori Exp… It’s a totally fucked up train… never travel in dat…Newez v reached delhi on 31th night, booked a bus 2 Hrishikesh frm dere...
By next morning I reached d state which I had alwez dreamt off… uttaranchal , home of my dream girl… uttaranchal is as beautiful as her, a class apart…
On d same day by evening v reached d base camp at 5000ft…

Base camp was surrounded by forest on one side and by assiganga river on other side…I said 2 myself , nothing is more beautiful dan nature’s beauty… dis river on reaching haridwar s called ganga… V were 38 guys with 6 frm tata Tinplate… v were accommodated in 3 tents… next morning would b d hardest day in my life…
V hav 2 wake up by 5.30 in dat cold… for morning freshness v hav 2 go 2 jungle… I should mention here dat in dis trip I learnt using toilet paper… it was too cold 2 touch water… n I must admit dat using toilet paper s better dan dirtying ur hand… ( SOB dion must b happy on dis, atlest his 1 frnd is turning out 2 be a NRI type) … hey 1 more good news for dion, raths n samik…. Now m comfortable using western style toilets… so next time if I go 2 dion’s home , I wont hav 2 go 2 bus stand 2 free myself…

Newez comin 2 my trip… v spent 4 dez b4 goin for d trek… v were divided in 5 grps with 7 or 8 members n each grp would b ranked accordin 2 four games played during d trip… in d next 4 dez v did rock climbing, rappling, river crossing and played 2 games… bachendri pal was also with us n she was watchin every1 closely… I came into limelight on 2nd de whn I climbed a tough rock very fastly whn every1 was fearing 2 do dat…but frnds, nobody took pic of my dat dare… Miss pal asked my name n 2 dez latter whn I was restin she called me by my name sayin Raj get up…den came rappling i.e getting down frn a cliff by a rope… dat too I did with perfection… River crossin was good … my grp came 5th in d 1st game… I was very upset bcoz I hate losing… in d 2nd game v were 4th… but in d next 2 games v r going 2 xcel…

V started our trek on 5th day… I was carrying 14 kgs on my back… d 1st night hault was in marsona in d middle of jungle… dere cookin competition was held … v hav 2 arrange for wood frm jungle n make it burn at that low temp… our grp was havin a g8 cook … he made ultimate dal tadka in dat tiring conditions… our grp was 2nd in dis comp… v lost 2 rigved’s grp… I must mention here dat rigved is a class.. he made kheer that evening…

V used 2 hav dinner at 6.30pm n sleep by 8 pm… wht else v wil do in jungle with no power, no ph network, no girls… in d tent b4 sleeping khub bakarch*di hoti thi aur hum sab hans ke pagal ho jate the… v were nt allowed 2 go alone in d jungle bcoz of animals… thank god v didn’t encounter any…

Next de v hav 2 climb d steepest slope… I was d grp leader for dat de… I brought d most innovative idea 2 climb … I asked every member f my grp 2 tell abt his love story … initially few hesitated bt latter on every1 opened n in no time v climbed without getting tired… our grp instructor also took part in our discussion givin some valuable suggestions…

Our next hault was manjhi… v had camp fire dere… a guy sang a song for me n v did ball dance… d song was O HANSINI by legendry kishore da…
Next de v trekked for dodital, d birth place of lord ganesha… it’s a beautiful lake with pine trees all around…v saw snow fall dere which I hav been waiting all my life… it was awesome… v played with snow balls… at dodital was 2 b played d 4th game : treasure Hunt… it was a do or die situation for my grp… v had 2 come 1st in any case… d temp had dropped to 1 degree …my grp did an ultimate planning n every1 gave more dan 100% 2 win d 1st position… finally this grp was overall 2nd n v had risen frm 5th position to 1st…

On last de v trekked for Dharwa top at 13500 ft… it was snow all along d way bcoz of heavy snowfall last night… our shoes were totally wet… some of our frnds very getting down on d way but v motivated dem… to divert their mind v used 2 say some bravery story … i told many dialogues frm my fav movie LOTR…after some 4 hrs of trekkin v reached d top …. It was as if v hav conquered Everest… if I ever get a chance 2 go 2 everest il grab it with both hands, however I knw its near 2 impossible… but who knws I may.

This was my 2nd best trip ever… 1st one was last year’s Goa trip… dis trip changed my character totally… now I feel more confident in myself… I think I can tak up any challenge in my life… dis trek also showed dat I have high stamina n fitness level… for dis I give credit 2 things : firstly was football… v used 2 play for long hrs in a stretch in rain without getting tired … n secondly my fav food suppliment products frm Amway… many of my frnds lost many kgs but I didn’t loose a single gram… I proudly say dat dese product r worth high cost… I also found some good frnds durin dese 2 weeks… hey raths u remember how our frndship started during sponsorship work for utkarsh’04…

Frnds if u ever get chance 2 go 2 a trip like dis don’t give it a 2nd thought , just go for it…

The description was really awsm ..especially the Third para "Base camp.." had me imagining the beauty of the place & not to mention the "Trekking to Dodital" para...snowfall n all..it was js beautiful imagining all this..
However,one suggestion when u r writing a post don use too much of shortforms like 2 for "TO" etc.."de" for day coz it makes the reading a lil difficult..

Anyways ,Dude!! es post se maine bhi tere saath imaginary trekking kar li..:-)..Cheers!!

This was the date on which the last post was posted on this page.

And while contemplating what to really write, the world just change.

The Indian/Modi Government decided that the cash in your pocket is useless, and worthless, and that for the next 50 odd days, there will be major hiccups, and what not while running your households. Minor expenses such as vegetables (from the thela wala vendors), will become a task, as you search for change under the mattresses and the sofas!

While, Shayon disagrees with me, there will be major ripple effects that our maglomaniac PM forgot to take into consideration. Though, I must appluad him for taking this bold step.

And, while, we were reeling under the shock of our worthless money, a bankrupt, misygyonist, racist, tax evader, capitalist maglomaniac won the elections in the most powerful country in the World! He did Trump us all.

And amongst all of this, do you all even remember what were you guys upto on July 11, 2013, when the last post went up.
