26th - 28th Jan 2007.

Me, Percy and Milind. Pachgani is a nice place. We loved it. Got to stay in a beautiful small house of our friend Mukul. Such a peaceful time. Little bit of Old Monk in the chill night. Lots of talk...

Last day we went to Mahabaleshwar. On the spur of the moment, hired a cab and went to Pratapgad. Fantastic journey through the hills. Blogged about it here.

the road twisted and turned
snaking through the wild hills
the sombre face of black rock
as the mantle of golden grass burned

the horizion lost
among the blue lines
golden shafts of the setting sun
holding the wheels of time as they turned ...


I could'nt go on the fort, but Percy and Milind did.

We had a nice time.

Free

Free
Pachgani


through these aimless times
searching for mocking rhymes
the ghosts of faith chasing
to the beats of the laughing chimes

as we see what we see
and be what we want to be
you too are free
from all that is me ...
