Old House, Matheran.

Old House, Matheran.

My obsession with this place continues. Every time I visit I have to click one photo. This is November 2007.

Harihareshwar etc.

It was good to be away from the city after a long time. I was feeling quite dead. So when the trip was proposed, I was ready. My car was in the garage, so had to borrow my brother's Honda city. It was fun driving. The company was good. The places we went through were refreshing.

We decided that we will go via Diveagar to Shrivardhan. This would mean a detour on a very bad road. But having passed through these lands on our bike trip, I knew it would be worth it. It was.

We reached Harihareshwar late. The MTDC was full. But between Percy and Harsh, they acquired accommodation for us. It was pretty good. We headed for dinner of fish in the local style.

Next morning I could not get up early, but Percy and Ipshita went roaming the land. After a breakfast we headed for the beach. It was so beautifully serene. I wish I could have stayed there for a few more days. Me and Percy walked to the other end while the others enjoyed the crystal clear waters and the white sands.

Lunch with our hosts, again of fish. Then on the way back to reality.

Our lives have become such a circus. Of running about. Of doing who knows what and to what end. Of chasing a life with the hope of a nicer future. This is the time of plenty. The food and shelter is there. But everyone is still looking for something ... else. It's such a circular thing that it becomes funny. The good part of it is that such occasions as ones describe above become all the more desired and enjoyable. I think we have psyched ourselves into such an hyper-excited lifestyle that we yearn and desperately strive to live these moments to the fullest. Experience.
