  • You can tell stories, you can convey emotions , you can make people laugh, cry, long and exhilarate but you cannot exchange an experience. This is an event which led to the mystical land of travel. We had heard of snowfall in hill town of Shimla, 4 hours from Chandigarh where we studied in university. To other people for whom snowfall may be common it might look silly but for a guy who had been living for 18 years in hot and dusty state of Rajasthan it was like meeting with an alien.
    It took a strange step of accompanying few fellow travelers in coldest month of February on a chilly night to meet the alien. We took the toy train from Kalka station early morning not knowing what exactly lies ahead. As our train started to cut through mountains some small salty powder started accumulating on the land and as we reached higher and higher which finally turned out to be a scene from a harry potter movie in which an engine with magical cutters attached to its front, cuts through the snow as on a turn of of the mountain we faced a C-turn ahead of us and saw the most breathtaking site which we had scene until now, we were shouting, laughing, coughing it was all happening plus snowflakes were still falling. The C-turn remains permanently framed in my heart, while this is a pic which i clicked just after reaching the railway station.
    I have been traveling ever since, for the thrill , for the surprise, for the dream on many more riskier and crazier trips but none comes to close to the day on which you lost your virginity.
