Random Thoughts

My present room is Bliss. My friend says “It’s a resort”. What he means is ‘ it’s pretty relaxing’.
Yes; if you can sit in your verandah and watch the vast Sea before you; and if you can feel its soft cold breeze in a hot summer (especially in Chennai); you will definitely love it.
As a fact; every water source has this great charm I think. Trek around for some hours and reach a water fall; take bath in it!! Man do you really need anything more.
So here I am; sitting all alone in my verandah; looking at this vast Sea; simply fascinated by its light blue colour and tides.
I start thinking about the conversation with my friend.
My Gtalk status was “What can I say except that life is an Odyssey of beautiful anecdotes.”
vicky: sounds fuzzy to me!
vicky is online.
challa: haha..But that’s true..Aint it
vicky: I don’t quite understand mean is all about recording all your memorable experiences ?
challa: not recording suppose; I ask you what you did in your life till now what will you say ??
vicky: I will say what all I think I did so far
challa: wait; write the sentence again properly

vicky: I will say what all I did in my life Until now
challa: tell me now

vicky: haha

challa: adugu maama( ask me)
vicky: so why is it beautiful ? asking this because...every one does so many things...but i always wonder why are we doing all these
challa: every one do lots of crap;when we are asked what we did, we say our best works aren’t they beautiful for individuals
vicky: 1 sec mama ;some one came
challa: okay
vicky: yeah…best works in the sense? Like professionally sound, ethical or ….. ?
challa: that u need to tell me; you said that you will say what ever you did. Tell me some
vicky: that’s okay but before that I want to know .what is best in your opinion?
challa: oh; i am asking you n ur asking me okay maama. Moments I enjoyed most are the best for me
vicky: you enjoyed means. You had fun. You laughed etc etc
challa: no
vicky: then?.......can you give 3 incidents
challa: I was never at my best when I am laughing
I loved feeling the morning sun on me
I loved to think and understand
I loved talking to myself alone..
And I loved rains; and trekking through forests
Many things man….ippudu nuvvu cheppu neekemi ishtamo (tell me your favorite incidents)…..what he told me ; I cant share with you.
So coming back to our blog. I started questioning what were the best moments of my life till now.
Himalayas; Uttarkhand ; one of the best tourist places in India.
Me and my father almost trekked 14 KMs to reach Kedarnath ; and we were standing before the shrine; (obviously with out chappals). And then this Happened; Ice rain! And it’s raining Ice. No place to run any where!! And the temple is really small; we need to stand there!!
All we did was to dig some place to keep single leg and standing on that leg we dig we dig out another hole before ice fills the previous hole.
Man that’s the best experience I ever. When I am coming back; all the mountains with trees looking as if they were covered with a green blanket were filled with ice every where;
Oh my god that was the most beautiful thing I have seen till then!! For the first time I felt what ecstasy is.

Well then my next best experience also in Himalayas; again my father was there.

I think I got this spirit to travel from my father; where ever we go either its Nepal; uttarkhand or kerala; everyone asks us “only couples come here sir; this is strange to see father and son coming here”

One hell of a person my father.

We reached Gangothri ‘the place where Ganga originates’ at night. We were so tired; we took a room and slept immediately; such a sound sleep!! Finally I woke up; my father was still sleeping so I choose to lie down on the bed instead of getting up. Suddenly I heard this pleasant sound; Initially I thought we forgot to turn off a tap; but then I felt ( I heard) the current was much stronger) so I got up and opened and the door to check what’s happening outside.

Believe me; there is a waterfall right in front of the room we took; and Ganga is flowing in its full swing.

I was dumb struck for sometime; and my father was standing next to me enjoying the beauty.

Well I am back; the sea is right before and my moments still with me. Odyssey of beautiful anecdotes
