गर्मी की छुट्टी आ रही है बच्चों की आँखों में अपने ननिहाल जाने के सपने पल रहे हैं,सारी सखियाँ अपने मायके जाने को खुशी-खुशी पहले से ही तैयारी करने में जुटी हैं।सारे बच्चे भी अपनी माँ के संग उनके बचपन के दिनों में लौटने को उत्सुक दिख रहे हैं।लेकिन मैं नहीं जाना चाहती अपने बचपन के उस हरे भरे और आज के उजाड़ "कुल्टी" को।मेरे बचपन का वो खूबसूरत सा शहर वक्त़ की कब्र में मर-खप गया है।वो मेरे बचपने का शहर,मेरी ज़िन्दगी के सबसे बेहतरीन उन 20 सालों का गवाह हँसता,मुस्कराता,खेलता,कूदता मेरा शहर "कुल्टी"।जिसने मुझे ज़िन्दगी दी,होश दिया,तरबीयत दी,प्यार दिया,लाड दिया दुलार दिया।जिसने मेरी रगों में दौड़ते लहू को रवानी दी "वो शहर" अब मुझे किसी बन्द पडी़ घड़ी की तरह दिखाई देता है।उस घडी़ की तरह जिसे घड़ीसाज़ ने खुद पुर्जे़-पुर्जे़ खोलकर बिखेर दिया हो।निकाल कर फेंक दिया हो एक-एक पेंच और कर दिया हो बे-पुर्जा़ खोखला।मेरा जन्म जब हुआ था "कुल्टी" शहर के इस भरे-पूरे परिवार में जो कि मेरा मयका है,तब ये शहर पूरी तरह से खुशहाल था।अपने पूरे शबाब पर एशिया के पहले लौह इस्पात कारखाने के तमगे के साथ सीना ताने खडा़ हुआ था यह खुशहाल शहर,मगर आज अपने ताबूत में आखिरी कील ठोक बैठा है।हरे-भरे पेड़,बंगाल का बेहतरीन गोल्फ-ग्राउंड,थियेटर,रविंद्रमंच,जादू घर,बर्फ़-कल,दुर्गा पूजा का मेला यानि हम बच्चों के लिये हमारी पूरी दुनिया।कारखाने के आस-पास बने क्वाटर्स में बडे़-बडे़ अधिकारी,देशी-विदेशी कर्मचारी रहते थे,देश-दुनिया के लोगऔर कुछ पड़ोसी देश नेपाल के भी।जो भी सम्पदा "कुल्टी" के पास थी देने को,दिया उसने जी खोलकर।बिल्कुल धरती की तरह,गंगा की तरह और एक माँ की तरह।अफसोस लेने वालों ने लेने की तरह नहीं बल्कि लुटेरों की तरह छीना,नोचा,लूटा,खसोटा।बाहरी थे ही,बाहरी की तरह ही गलत तरीके से इस्तेमाल किया मेरे बचपने के इस "कुल्टी" को।उन्होंने कभी सोचा भी नहीं कि वो "कुल्टी" की जगह अपना ही जड़ काट रहे हैं।वे बाहरी थे सभी,उनके लिये वो उनका घर नहीं,बस पैसा कमाने-बनाने का एक आसान स्थान था।पीढ़ियों के बाद भी उनकी न हुई थी "कुल्टी"।कुल्टी की क़िस्मत ऐसी कि उसके गोद में पले-जन्मे बच्चे भी खुद को यू०पी०, बिहार या नेपाल के बाशिंदे ही खुदको मानते रहे।"कुल्टी"इतनों के होते हुए भी संतान विहीन थी।गैरों के बच्चे,ना-ना सँपोले पालती "कुल्टी" विष-दंश से नीली पड़ती,मरती,उजड़ती,उखड़ती रही।अपने ही कामगारों,दलालों,बाहूबलियों,लुटेरों,घोटालेबाजों के हाथों डूबता बरबाद होता रहा कुल्टी का कारखाना।धीरे-धीरे घाटा बढ़ता रहा,मरता रहा कारखाना।कर्मचारी सोचते रहे कि 'ये तो गंगा है बहती रहेगी अनवरत हमने तो एक लोटा जल ही निकाला है अपने वतन यानि अपने घर के लिये,इसी सोच ने हाथों हाथ दोहन किया,खूब लूटा कुल्टी और कारखाना को।एक-एक लोटे ने आखिरकार खाली ही कर दिया अमृत,चरमराता रहा कारखाना,सूखता रही नदी।थक-हारकर कर बैठ गई "कुल्टी" बन्द हो गया इस्को का कारखाना 1997 में। कहने को तो आज भी चल रहा है शायद अधमरा सा अपंग सा, पर हर बार मुझे लगता है जैसे कोमा में है ये।मेरे बचपन के इस शहर का तेवर मर चुका है।उसकी यादें,आह मेरे बचपने का शहर "कुल्टी"।अपनों के हाथों बनाई अर्थी पर अचेत पडा़ है मेरा बेजान शहर,उसे इस बेहोशी से उठा पाये,ऐसा कोई चमत्कार होता तो मुझे नहीं दिखता।कितना खूबसूरत था मेरा शहर,आज मुझे एक तस्वीर लेने को यदि कोई कहे तो लगता है उस मरते शहर को हरे बेलो के अर्थी पे खड़ा करने की कोशिश को कहाँ रखूँ मैं।तस्वीरों में लपेट के क्या लाऊँ क्या दिखाऊँ और क्या देखूँ।मेरे वो बचपन की "कुल्टी" यादों में बहुत खूबसूरत है।वो शहर जो दौड़ता था कुलांचे भरता था खिलखिलाता था,आज भी यादों की इस पोटली में बंद है।मैं नहीं जाती छुट्टी में,अब अपने घर "कुल्टी"।बिना नीव के मकान और बिन खंबे की छत सा टिका है यह जरजर शहर,डर लगता है कहीं सर पर ही न गिर पडे़।बिना गरदन का शहर "भूत" और टेढे पाँव की "कुल्टी" चुडै़ल दिखती है।#कुल्टी

We humans adorn many a faces...good bad ugly nasty humane etc...etc.Our interactions with others form impressions about them.Yesterday I had to meet a client morning 9.30. in Noida.Uber was booked for me.The journey as a matter of fact was bumpy jerky and sometimes smooth too. It gave an impression that the driver may be an inexperienced one.At one point my purse toppled and everything fell out. I immediately put my things back.Reaching my destination I got down. Barely had I reached my client’s house that I got a call from the driver,”Ma’am apni chabian le jaiye.”“My keys.. Oh my God,” and ran down again towards the gate.I thanked the driver a hundred times for saving out of a fiasco that could have been without the keys.It didn't come in my notice that the keys had fallen out of the bag. I marvelled at his honesty humanity and humility. Yes goodness prevails!Kiren Babal25.1.2018
Epitome of art, architecture and culture. They are rightly the essence of Jaipur, the pink city. Place so vibrant and colorful can be synonymized as “Gateway to Royal Rajasthan”. Art and Architecture is so vastly reflected in the city that once visited, it’s almost impossible to control the urge to visit other parts of the state.Food and delicacies of this region are something not to ignore either. Rich in spices, flavours and desi Ghee are truly the royal ingredients of a Rajasthani meal. This is the exact reason a clique of girls got lost on the streets of Jaipur looking for that perfect Gewarh,Pyaz ke Samose and Dal bati churma; until they could satisfy their appetites.One of the girls wanted to capture the moments and perceptions, while others wanted to be captured in the moments.While the other girls wanted to take back goodies and merchandises as memorabilia, this girl wanted to take back the memories, trapped in the right words.Again, one among them, wanted to live in the aroma and vibes of the place herself, while others wanted to just experience them temporarily.There was something beautiful about feeling on vacation and at home all at once, that’s what made her pen this down.Four girls landed in the city, early in the morning, unaware of even the places to halt. But were no slow-paced in kick starting the day, all dressed to perfection and making bold statements. “Yes, they believed in travelling in class”. It didn’t matter how their itinerary was, but their attires were sure as hell ‘well planned’. It included colors and vibrancies as a base, two days of modernity with some desi touch, while one day restricted to contemporarily basic ethnic outfits!!Itinerary was something like this, first day included all the outskirts, majorly forts of Jaipur. Second day an excursion to Ajmer and Pushkar. Last day included the local inner-city sight-seeing. Planned shopping was to be done either at Pushkar or on the last day of trip which went for a toss and they ended up shopping on all three days. After all,they were girls and it was a girls’ trip, Duuuhhh!!!!!!! Let me clarify – not being a contra feminist here.Experience differ from person to person and so does the stories of travel, even if it’s of the same place or of multiple times. Amer fort (as pronounced), which is written as Amber fort,is a delight to ones’ senses. Well planned, better maintained and least destroyed of all the forts deserves to be called the best of them all. A person can typically spend minimum of one to one and a half hour within the fort. Jaigarh holds world’s largest cannon displayed for public. The walls of Jaigarh and Nahargarh forts are infamously called Great wall of India similar to that of China’s. The view from above and amidst those walls are surely worth a great deal of calorie burn. Not to miss a couple of stops where a glimpse of Jalmahal can be spotted in all its glory,on the driveway to Nahargarh. One can even have some chai and coffee from the local vendors,while chilling at these viewpoints.Pushkar, girls fell for it the moment they entered the streets. Call them vibes,spirit or energy, there was something totally positive. People tend to get drawn towards the hippie culture and ambience the town has. Hosting its tourists with the world’s one and only Bramha temple,charm of the town lies on the banks of serene and sacred lake of Pushkar. The roads of Ajmer to Pushkar in between the aravalli ranges, a sunset on the countryside as a back drop to the camel safari, all adds on to the drive factor. A stay here wouldn’t harm your pockets provided the kind of vacation being looked forward to is of chilling and relaxation as a main purpose. Add on: There is a lot to shop at this place, bargaining is the key!Ajmer Shariff Dargah is a place of religious significance, where faith of believers can be seen at its highest. One thing to be kept in mind is not to visit the place during the times of prayer, especially on the days of Jumma. Tourists might end up waiting for hours together just to enter the center sanctum. Also, the inner most sanctum is the hardest to get in and out of, it is advisable to be cautious of your belongings and special attention required for kids.The most economical and convenient way of travel around Jaipur, Ajmer, Pushkar back and forth is by local buses .It's good to keep a track of time and manage the day accordingly. There are frequent buses plying around, reaching the destination within the span of 2.5 hours. However, if there are kids and people with ailments and ageing, it's advisable to hire a cab on fair prices.Final day, girls headed towards city the local way. The most effective way of reaching the local sights is by a rick or a cab. All the major destinations inside city for example City palace, Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar are all within the walkable distance from one another.These structures of Hawa Mahal and city palace are of more recent times as compared to those forts on the outskirts. Peek-a-Boo through those colorful windows is how Hawa Mahal can be described. City palace is in all its splendor and glory of roughness. It is enclosed with Musuems, Art galleries, Durbar halls etc. which exhibit the objects used by the then royal family. Only place of interest in Jantar Mantar for girls was of structures containing zodiac signs, along with which they could get photographed. People with special interest in science and astronomical knowledge would enjoy this more than laymen. Otherwise, it is still a good sight to visit as a place from history, especially with the world's biggest sundial as a main attraction.Girls felt teleported to the era of maharaja, these structures gave them a feel of life within them. How they wished, they could go back in time and visit when these places were inhabited!!P.S. My HApPyy Moments:1.Spotting Colorfully Painted Elephants on the streets.2.Watching ladies cooking roti on the lanes of Pushkar.3.Getting a glimpse of civilization and mountains merging from Nahargarh.4.Buying a palazzo with elephant prints on them Yesss… elephant in it’s any form is LOVE!!! HAppy Vacations and don’t forget to check the next blog“Background Check, Jaipur Jaunts-2”, containing history of the places mentioned here in detail.
बाबा कार्ल मार्क्स की मज़ार, बरसात और कम्यूनिस्ट कोनापिछले बरस यानी 2006 में कथा यूके का इंदु शर्मा कथा सम्मान वरिष्ठ साहित्यकार असगर वजाहत को उनके उपन्यास कैसी आगी लगाई के लिए हाउस हॉफ लॉर्ड्स में दिया गया। इसी सिलसिले में मैं उनके साथ जून 2006 में बीस दिन के लिए लंदन गया था। सम्मान आयोजन के पहले और बाद में हम दोनों खूब घूमे। बसों में . टयूब में . तेजेद्र शर्मा की कार में और पैदल भी। हम लगातार कई कई मील पैदल चलते रहते और लंदन के आम जीवन को नजदीक से देखने . समझने और अपने-अपने कैमरे में उतारने की कोशिश करते। हम कहीं भी घूमने निकल जाते और किसी ऐसी जगह जा पहुंचते जहां आम तौर पर कोई पैदल चलता नज़र ही न आता।एक बार हमने तय किया कि बाबा कार्ल मार्क्स की मज़ार तक चला जाये। असगर भाई का विचार था कि कहीं इंटरनेट कैफे में जा कर पहले लोकेशन, जाने वाली ट्यूब और दूसरी बातों की जानकारी ले लेते हैं तो वहां तक पहुंचने में आसानी रहेगी। उन्हें इतना भर पता था कि हमें हाईगेट ट्यूब स्टेशन तक पहुंचना है और ये वाला कब्रिस्तान वहां से थोड़ी ही दूरी पर है। लेकिन मेरा विचार था कि हाईगेट स्टेशन तक पहुंच कर वहीं से जानकारी ले लेंगे।हाईगेट पहुंचने में हमें कोई तकलीफ नहीं हुई। अब हमारे सामने एक ही संकट था कि हमारे पास लोकल नक्शा नहीं था और दूसरी बात हाईगेट स्टेशन से बाहर निकलने के तीन रास्ते थे और हमें पता नहीं था कि किस रास्ते से हमारी मंजिल आयेगी। हमारी दुविधा को भांप कर रेलवे का एक अफसर हमारे पास आया और मदद करने की पेशकश की। जब हमने बताया कि हमारी आज की मंजिल कौन सी है तो उसने हमें लोकल एरिया का नक्शा देते हुए समझाया कि हम वहां तक कैसे पहुंच सकते हैं।बाहर निकलने पर हमने पाया कि बेशक हम लंदन के बीचों-बीच थे लेकिन अहसास ऐसे हो रहा था मानो इंगलैंड के दूर दराज के किसी ग्रामीण इलाके की तरफ जा निकले हों। लंदन की यही खासियत है कि इतनी हरियाली . मीलों लम्बे बगीचे और सदियों पहले बने एक जैसी शैली के मकान देख कर हमेशा यही लगने लगता है कि हम शहर के बाहरी इलाके में चले आये हों। बेशक हाईगेट सिमेटरी तक बस भी जाती थी लेकिन हमने एक बार फिर पैदल चलना तय किया। रास्ते में एक छोटा-सा पार्क देख कर बैठ गये और डिब्बा बंद बीयर का आनंद लिया।आगे चलने पर पता नहीं कैसे हुआ कि हम सिमेटरी वाली गली में मुड़ने के बजाये सीधे निकल गये और भटक गये। वहां कोई भी पैदल चलने वाला नहीं था जो हमें गाइड करता। हम नक्शे के हिसाब से चलते ही रहे। तभी हमारी तरह का एक और बंदा मिला जो वहीं जाना चाहता था।खैर... अपनी मंजिल का पता मिला हमें और हम आगे बढ़े। ये एक बहुत ही भव्य किस्म की कॉलोनी थी और वहां बने बंगलों को देख कर आसानी से इस बात का अंदाजा लगाया जा सकता था वहां कौन लोग बसते होंगे। एक मजेदार ख्याल आया कि हमारे सुपर स्टार अमिताभ बच्चन अगर अपनी 227 करोड़ की सारी की सारी पूंजी भी ले कर वहां बंगला खरीदने जायें तो शायद खरीद न पायें।ऐसी जगह के पास थी बाबा कार्ल मार्क्स की मज़ार। मीलों लम्बा कब्रिस्तान। अस्सी बरस की तो रही ही होगी वह बुढ़िया जो हमें कब्रिस्तान के गेट पर रिसेप्शनिस्ट के रूप में मिली। एंट्री फी दो पाउंड। हम भारतीय कहीं भी पाउंड को रुपये में कन्वर्ट करना नहीं भूलते। हिसाब लगा लिय़ा 184 रुपये प्रति टिकट। अगर कब्रिस्तान की गाइड बुक चाहिये तो दो पाउंड और। ये इंगलैंड में ही हो सकता है कि कब्रिस्तान की भी गाइड बुक है और पूरे पैसे देने के बाद ही मिलती है। हमने टिकट तो लिये लेकिन बाबा कार्ल मार्क्स तक मुफ्त में जाने का रास्ता पूछ लिया। उस भव्य बुढ़िया ने बताया कि आगे जा कर बायीं तरफ मुड़ जाना। ये भी खूब रही। मार्क्स साहब मरने के बाद भी बायीं तरफ।मौसम भीग रहा था और बीच बीच में फुहार अपने रंग दिखा रही थी। कभी झींसी पड़ती तो कभी बौछारें तेज हो जातीं।हम खरामा-खरामा कर्बिस्तान की हरियाली . विस्तार और एकदम शांत परिवेश का आनंद लेते बाबा कार्ल मार्क्स की मज़ार तक पहुंचे। देखते ही ठिठक कर रह गये। भव्य। अप्रतिम। कई सवाल सिर उठाने लगे। एक पूंजीवादी देश में रहते हुए वहां की नीतियों के खिलाफ जीवन भर लिखने वाले विचारक की भी इतनी शानदार कब्र। कोई आठ फुट ऊंचे चबूतरे पर बनी है कार्ल मार्क्स की भव्य आवक्ष प्रतिमा। आस पास जितनी कब्रें ह़ैं उनके बाशिंदे बाबा की तुलना में एकदम दम बौने नजर आते हैं। बाबा की कब्र पर बड़े बड़े हर्फों में खुदा है - वर्कर्स ऑफ ऑल लैंड्स . युनाइट। ये कम्यूनिस्ट मैनिफैस्टों की अंतिम पंक्ति है।ये भी कैसी विडम्बना है जीवन की। जीओ तो मुफलिसी में और मरो तो ऐसी शानदार जगह पर इतना बढ़िया कोना नसीब में लिखा होता है।उनकी मज़ार पर इस समय जो शिलालेख लगा ह़ै वह 1954 में गेट ब्रिटेन की कम्यूनिस्ट पार्टी ने लगवाया था और उस स्थल को विनम्रता पूर्वक सजाया गया था। एक और अजीब बात इस मज़ार के साथ जुड़ी हुई है कि 1970 में इसे उड़ा देने का असफल प्रयास किया गया था।अभी हम मार्क्स बाबा की तस्वीरें ले ही रहे थे कि हमारी निगाह सामने वाले कोने की तरफ गयी जहां कुछ कब्रों पर ताजे फूल चढ़ाये गये थे। हम देख कर हैरान रहे गये कि ये पूरा का पूरा कोना दुनिया भर के ऐसे कम्यूनिस्ट नेताओं की कब्रों के लिए सुरक्षित था जिन्होंने पिछले दशकों में इंगलैंड में रह कर देश निकाला झेलते हुए यहां से अपने-अपने देश की राजनीति का सूत्र संचालन किया था। यहां पर हमने ईराकी . अफ्रीकी . लातिनी देशों के कई प्रसिद्ध नेताओं की कब्रें देखीं। ज्यादातर कब्रों पर इस्लामी नाम खुदे हुए दिखायी दिये। किसी ने लंदन में तीस तो किसी ने बीस बरस बिताये थे और अपने अपने देश की आजादी की लड़ाई लड़ी थी और अंत समय आने पर यहीं . बाबा कार्ल मार्क्स से चंद कदम दूर ही सुपुर्दे खाक किये गये थे। उस कोने में कम से कम पचास कब्रें तो रही ही होंगी।कब्रिस्तान सौ बरस से भी ज्यादा पुराना होने के बावजूद अभी भी इस्तेमाल में लाया जा रहा था। बरसात बहुत तेज होने के कारण हम ज्यादा भीतर तक नहीं जा पाये थे लेकिन कब्रों पर लगे फलक पढ़ कर लग रहा था कि ये कब्रगाह ऐसे वैसों के लिए तो कतई नहीं है। दफनाये गये लोगों में कोई काउंट था तो कोई काउंटेस। कोई गवर्नर था तो कोई राजदूत।वापसी पर हम जिस रास्ते से हो कर आय़े वह एक बहुत बड़ा हरा भरा खूबसूरत बाग था जिसमें सैकड़ों किस्म के फूल और पेड़ लगे हुए थे। वहां से वापिस आने का दिल ही नहीं कर रहा था।हम दोनों ही सोच रहे थे . रहने को नहीं . मरने को ही ये जगह मिल जाये तो यही जन्नत है।
छोटे से शहर की लड़की थी, कई बार डर लगा करता था. पर ‘डर के आगे जीत है’ वाला जुमला तो रटा था ही. फिर क्या था एक दिन इस लड़की ने उठाया बैग और निकल पड़ी कुछ अनजान रास्तों से दोस्ती करने. कुछ अनजान लोगों को जानने. और सबसे ज़्यादा खुद को ढूंढने.

The blog is about a weekend that I spent wandering the streets of Cambridge.
StoryMirror interviewed Aislin Fall, a 25 years old maker of things. Writer. Photographer. Poet. Compulsive traveller. Joy Seeker. Knowledge sponge. PNW born and bred.Here is what she has to say.Q. Tell us about you and your background.I guess I was born and then a lot of things happened and I ended up where I am now.I'm from British Columbia, Canada. I was 16 when I started taking photographs using my dad's camera. I was really obsessed with fashion photography for a long time and was always making my friends crawl into bushes and peer from behind blooming branches and once, I made my best friend carry a small wooden giraffe around her neighbourhood. Eventually, I started photographing models in the suburbs and beautiful landscapes wearing lots of different clothes. Eventually, I stopped photographing models anywhere. These past few years, I've become more drawn to taking pictures that document life as I see it, which usually fits in the category of travel and portrait photography with a tinge of adventure and lifestyle. I still shoot fashion sometimes but it's not my main focus.Photoshop came before photography for me and by the time I picked up my first camera, I was already dabbling in graphic design and photomanipulation. I fell in love with retouching as I transitioned into fashion photography and I worked as a retoucher for a few years. I don't retouch professionally any longer. I like being outside more than I like being on a computer these days.Travel has been the dominant force in my life for the past four years, although I did travel a lot with my family while growing up. I am usually in a state of going somewhere. I haven't had a "home" for more than a few months in a long time.Q. What is your life's greatest passion? What inspires you? I think life itself is my greatest passion—life and all the things it encompasses. The swell and swoon and pull and press of existence. The miracle of existing at all. The hope is to be as fully present and here in this moment. It's strange how something so simple can be so hard sometimes! How easy to get lost in your head—to stop listening to footfall of passing strangers, trills of birds, pulse of water. So my greatest passion is life and from there, everything else flows. I have been a maker ever since I was little—drawing, writing, forming stories—and the process of creating is a huge passion of mine. Nowadays, it takes the shape of photography and poetry. I grew up travelling the west coast of North America with my family and in my 20s, I've spent a lot of time on the road in Canada, USA, Europe, Southeast Asia, Australia, and New Zealand. Travelling is definitely one of the other great loves of my life.But they are all so wound together. Photography, writing, travelling—they're all giant pieces of this life of mine. They're how I think and feel and experience. Life gives me inspiration and then I take that and make these things with it.Life inspires me, the world inspires me, relationships inspire me, art inspires me, emotions inspire me, light inspires me. Since I'm mostly photographing my life as I experience it, I just look for moments.Q. Take us through your work. I shoot people and places. I catch real moments and pull them through my perspective until they feel like me. I get my fingerprints on everything. I'm not one of those photographers who doesn't like to modify things (though if you are, that's fine). I see things as malleable. I love Photoshop.My work is me; my work is my life. It's the fleeting instant that I got my fingers around. It's a record of where I've been and what I've felt. The roads I've walked down, the people I've loved, the sunrises I've seen, the glimmers of light that took my breath away.It's travel or landscape or documentary or lifestyle or portrait or whatever.WhistlerUSATessTasmaniaTasmaniaSydneyScotlandPortoMaiteIrelandIrelandIrelandhowthhollandCanadaBeeAusAthensAthensQ. Can you share with us a 'behind-the-scene' memory of yours that has stood out the most? Back in October, at the beginning of this last backpacking trip in Europe, I went to the Acropolis in Athens for sunrise. I watched the twinkle of dawn wash over the ancient streets of the city and observed the quiet blue of night transform into brilliant, shining light. It was one of those times when you look around at your life and feel all the decisions that brought there to that specific, remarkable, precious point. A blink of overwhelming gratitude.During the day, Acropolis is a swarming beehive of human beings. There are so many people. But when the gates first open in the morning—right before the sun rises, it's nearly empty. There were only two or three other people there when I watched the dawn awaken the city. It was so private and personal, witnessing the sun crest over the mountains, pull the shadows long and far over the ruins.Q. Is there an achievement or contribution that you are most proud of?I have been to 25 countries in 25 years, and while that's not a "career" oriented "achievement," it's a personal achievement. I'm immensely proud of this life that I've carved for myself. I have seen so much and it's truly shaped me.Q. What is your life's philosophy?Love and interconnectivity. Be kind and compassionate towards everything—other humans, animals, the planet, yourself. We are all so tied together. Our actions matter.Q. If you could give a message to all the 20 year olds of the world, what would it be?Be patient. Remember that you are not your emotions. Gratitude is the key. Emotions are passing clouds in the sky—they are things that you experience but they are not your identity so don't be consumed by them or think that they're your truth. Patience because all things take time and it's really hard to really know who you are or what you want at 20. It's important to give yourself room to grow and discover and make mistakes. I view the 20s as being a massive opportunity for learning. Training your mind to practice gratitude has the potential to change everything.Q. How do you want to see yourself 5 years from now?Happy and fulfilled, though that's the aim for every single day and not the destination. I'd like to be sustaining an income from my photography and writing, and still engaged in creative projects that excite me. I hope to have more of a "home" in five years but still travelling a lot with at least another ten new countries checked off my list!Check out her website, blog and instagram.

Much like yoga,Trekking is an exercise that brings you together the body and the mind And makes your spirits shine, With the nurturing and the taming of your mind, You better the feelings that are food for your soul.Like yoga; in its process and exercise, trekking has a lot to do with breath-work and breath-control leading to mind control. The process of trekking then, further goes on to healing and fixing the energy loopholes of your being.The exercise of trekking is getting popular everywhere in the world. India and Nepal, the areas that are close to the Himalayas are in the spotlight because wisdom comes down from the great Himalayas to these lands. There are a plenty of trekking destination in India, and even more difficult trekking destinations in Nepal. The Annapurna base camp trek in Khandruk, Nepal is a doable and yet difficult trek that I recommend people to participate in.I will go as far as to say that trekking is a meditation and that’s because as widely it is believed that meditation requires one to be still and calm and composed; that may not be the entirety of meditation. Meditation is a practice that we do to activate our minds that has been either focusing on certain things too much, or been too relaxed or out of focus in its functioning.Meditation is essentially a practice that makes your concentration power more and more flexible and stronger. By explanation, concentration is the power of being able to contract and expand your consciousness and hold it for as long as required.Our consciousness gets out of practice and things start to get monotonous. When we go for trekking, the mind is expected to achieve great levels of concentration because it demands the holding capacity of your concentration, which, if not present, will kill you on your trek. That’s why people who have a good hold of their concentration can take up more and more difficult treks. Hence trekking is a form of moving meditation. It can be justified that trekking is essentially yoga in consistent movement and a faster method of unraveling and opening up. If you trek for a living, your body will find itself in a perpetual state of movement, and the mind at rest and in control at all times.Trekking demands for you to be mentally present at all times, or else your reality will be altered very easily and you may lose consciousness, which is why you may find trekkers walking silently in concentration. So what happens when we calm our minds and trek silently? We make our minds more and more alert so that it helps channelize all the energy in the body to be utilized by the physical activity!When your mind is calm and focused and your body is in movement, you become the humblest version of yourself at that moment because you are focusing on the bare necessities to keep you alive and walking ahead. And when humans get what they need and not what they greed, people are humbler and in greater harmony with themselves and each other. It will not be surprising to say that people, who trek as a lifestyle choice, live longer and live life in its full essence because all they have to do is walk away and find another strange place to find comfort in. What happens when you are trekking is that you are meditating with each step, your mind is calm, your body is in movement and your spirits are enriched versions which is how things are supposed to be in life, where people are only caring for their necessities and not for their greed.But the city life has introduced a lot of greed and in times when we exist in satisfaction, we may encounter moments of greed which leads our body and soul in the direction to achieve that greed that we inculcated in us. What we are doing while trekking is focusing on the bare necessities of life.With trekking you will go the natural way, and the natural way always leads to more satisfaction than running madly after something that you don’t even need. The “time” that you buy, is the “age” you have bought for yourself to live.Trekking does have tremendous scope for spiritual growth as well. Wisdom comes with the patience that we are willing to give to the things that are necessary for us, after we have bought all that time from meditating in movement. We are free to spend it on what may be an essential knowledge to pass down to your next generation. Whatever knowledge that people gain from spending time on gaining it, internalizes in our body and down to our genes...So you decide what information and knowledge you want to pass on to the coming generation. Trekking is extremely beneficial for your mind body and soul because when you are on a trek, you are feeding your entire being with all the goodness it needs internally and externally’ with every step you take, the problems you face on this journey are different from not meeting a project deadline…. You see, you’re more worried about collecting enough firewood to grant yourselves a heart-warming bon-fire when you want to take rest.
The article talks about some of the best Yoga exercises that are good for preparing the body for trekking.Trekking and Yoga are related in many ways. Both are highly fascinating to practice, filled with tons of beautiful memories. Rejuvenation of the mind, body, and soul is a common element of Yoga and trekking. All over the world, many trekkers enjoy the delight of the ancient science to boost their chance of succeeding on the trekking trails. Whether you are planning a trekking tour in Nepal or aspiring for a journey in the Alps, Yoga is the best way, to begin with. Even embracing Yoga during the tour can be extremely enjoying.Let’s talk about some of the most effective Yoga poses that help you prepare the body and mind for trekking.Ardha-UtkatasanaLet’s begin with the advanced version of Chair Pose. Ardha-Utkatasana is one of the finest ways to boost the strength of your legs and thighs muscles. Also known as the Standing Figure Four, the asana is practiced on one leg. While one foot is perfectly placed on the ground, the other leg finds itself on the knee. Although bending down in this position needs a lot of effort, it can be easily possible with regular practice. Balance is the key in both - the practice of Ardha-Utkatasana and Trekking.NatarajasanaThe vibrancy of Natarajasana can be understood by the fact that it is the cosmic dance form of Lord Shiva. Being a perfect practitioner of this asana means you are able to perform all kinds of physical activities. During the one-legged asana, the left toe is held by the left hand in the air while the right arm extends parallel to the ground. You should repeat the practice on the other side to complete the exercise. The practice tones almost all body parts and helps the body enjoy tremendous stability.ChakrasanaWelcome flexibility in your life to succeed as a trekker of the utmost level. Chakrasana is all about crossing the limits of the body and applying it to make a person internally strong. The whole body is in a circle-like position with the palms and toes balancing the body. The abdomen remains at the top during the asana. The asana is one of the finest ways to boost the flow of blood throughout the body. It also tones almost all muscles and bones of the body in the process.BakasanaBakasana is known as Crow pose, thanks to its imitation as a crow. The pair of palms holds the body weight while the body recoils in the air. Place your knees on the arms while making sure the buttocks are at the top. The exercise gives a lot of confidence to the practitioner, since it is not an easy task to hold the body on the palms. That mixture of power, confidence, and audacity can be the most important thing to have while trekking.Prasarita PadottanasanaPlace your feet wide apart (approx 2-3 ft) to indulge in a beautiful physical exercise that every avid trekker and hiker should practice. Bend in the forward direction to place the head on the mat. Make sure the knees don't bend in the process. Put your palms on the mat on either side of the head. It is an extremely amazing asana for getting prepared for a difficult level trek like Everest Base Camp Trek and GR 20.PadmasanaAt the end of a physical task, you need to relax. You want a moment or two of quietude in life to calm yourself down. Padmasana is probably the most astonishing way to relax and pacify your mind. The reason that makes Lotus Pose holds the upper hand over other restful exercises is that it comes with the additional benefit of stretching various body muscles. Just by sitting in Padmasana, one can feel complete silence as well as spinal strengthening. Chanting a few mantras helps you attain the state of soulfulness.

People, who want to get close to the highest mountain in the world, opt for this trekking trail once in Nepal.There is a long list of foods that you should eat while on a trekking trip, but there are 5 important foods and beverages that you must absolutely avoid while starting on a trekking journey. 1. Alcoholic beveragesConsumption of alcohol lowers your energy outlet and drags down your focus while trekking. More than anything, alcohol is a beverage that stirs your emotional levels and hampers the progress on your mental capacity on a trek. Trekking is an activity that requires your mind to be aware and alert at all times; a loss of one second of your attention span can lead to fatal accidents. It is worse if you go through a hangover before starting a lengthy trek. It is true that people consume alcohol to ward off the chilling winds in a trek, but that is only really small quantities of alcohol. It is always better to celebrate with alcohol after the trek is over. 2. Cold meatsYou may have heard that meat is a very strong source of proteins and energy, but you may not know that you can obtain the same quantity of proteins and vitamins from so many kinds of vegetables. More than anything, why the consumption of meat is so bothersome is that, meat can be preserved and kept for inculcating flavour, and the proteins in the meat don’t survive for long. So, what you consume in the end is a dead flesh that has been cured for flavour. While trekking you need proteins and vitamins to keep you trekking in a consistent manner, it is not advisable to consume dead flesh while on a trek that needs you to produce the energy from within. Especially while on a trek to Nepal do not expect a lot of variety in meat. If you are used to eating beef forget that you will find beef anywhere, cow is the national animal of Nepal and it is highly offensive to consume beef or steak. 3. Carbonated drinksWhen on a trek you must take care of your abdomen and stomach. Try to eat foods that do not upset the stomach a lot. Especially consuming all natural based items is advisable. Carbonated drinks only serve for flavour and the taste buds while not being a very healthy option while on a trek. For energy boost and refreshment, try drinking natural vegan milks and fruit juices instead. 4. RiceEating rice in large amounts causes your stomach to swell and this makes it hard for you to carry your own weight on a trek. Rice is necessary for the carbohydrates that is provides but consuming too much out of hunger is not advised. This is because rice does not provide lot of roughage for exercising the abdomen. Rather breads like the traditional Nepali roti are full of proteins and roughage. 5. Processed foodsAny form of processed foods is likely to contain very less amounts of the vitamins of that particular food. Processed foods also contain traces of preservatives that are not beneficial for your energy flow. Avoid processed foods and try to consume more foods that can be naturally sourced, even if it lacks in flavour which is very unlikely, opt for natural foods, fruits and vegetables. While on an important trek, or any trekking expedition for that matter, try to go as vegan or vegetarian as possible. The greens that you consume hold a lot more energy than meat and other alternatives you consume for proteins. There are a lot of foods that are essential for treks, and believe it or not, while on a trek, the simplest foods like rice, wheat and lentils are the best source of energy. The locals thrive on this kind of food and it is what keeps them surviving and it the best shape to be alive on these terrains. We may be tourists but the natives are locals they are one with the mountains and the natural surroundings. So follow their lead and do in Rome as the Romans do.
