Thursday, 27th April 2017, Geeli Mitti Farms, Village Mahrora, Uttarakhand, India:
All work and no party would be sacrilege. Yes, we did have our moments of fun and laughter, but as our trip was coming to an end, everyone decided to throw a small party under the starry moonless night.
Songs playing on loop on our mobiles, the iconic ‘Haal Chaal Thik Thak Hai’ – from the film ‘Mere Apne’ – aptly resonated with all our lives. The big degrees, the high paying jobs and the security of a dead end comfort zone – there was a reason why we were all there at that point of time in our lives. Truly, the mountains make you think and retrospect.
We talked about life back in the cities and suddenly we were feeling a bit melancholy. We didn’t want the night to end. We didn’t want to go back home to reality.
