On the trail of silver mist

It was rainy season and I was on my monsoon solo trip just like every year. It’s been a decade, I try to explore new mountain trails in every monsoon.  This year was not an exception for it. I packed my bags and moved out. Bookings in the forest bungalow were already arranged. It’s always…

#AtoZChallange – The Journey

उन्हं कलली तसे आम्ही सारे शिरप्याच्या मागोमाग परतीच्या वाटेला लागलो. आमच्या कळपाचा आधार असलेला वाघ्या पुढे जाऊन रस्ता सुरक्षित असल्याची खात्री करून पुन्हा शिरप्याच्या पायात पायात चालायला लागला. शिरप्या खांद्यावर काठी आडवी टाकून पुढ्यात चालत होता. त्याला लावलेल्या नाजूक घुंगरांच्या मंजुळ आवाजावर ताल धरून आम्ही मेंढरं त्या जोडगोळीच्या मागे मागे चालत होतो. गुमान मान खाली…
