I woke up next to my cousin brother, tired and exhausted. Even six hours after starting our journey we were still in the car. Maybe going to Kashmir by road was a mistake, but what else can we do when we are travelling with three families full of cheapskates.
Those zig-zag roads in the mountains were making all of us feel dizzy. Especially me, as I’m very vulnerable to these kinds of scenarios. All i did was pop up some medicines that would make me fall asleep for hours. This worked pretty well in the first place. Our SUV climbed one of the steepest and dangerous roads on earth giving us goosebumps.
The journey showed me one of the best sceneries that anyone can ever imagine. Those Himalayan snow clad mountains, green pine trees and water streams were like heaven. All this while I wondered how nature made everything so precise. Everything seemed to have a story of its own. The sun hid behind the mountains teasing people with its dim sunshine. In that cold weather, all i wanted was some heat from the sun. I stepped out of the car and inhaled the freshest air ever. I took out my phone from my pocket and took a snap.
It was one of the most beautiful things i had ever seen. For the first time in my life, i was so much in love with nature. I wished if this moment would never end. I lie down on the soft grass and looked at the clear blue sky as it looked like the guardians of this beautiful ecosystem. Those thin long trees shielded the ground and tiny animals worshipped their home.
I compared the exotic scenery with the human life. Considering every component of nature with the human life.
- The sky would depict the success of our lives as it governed the environment just as success does to our lives.
- The downhill would signify the failure but at the same time, the uphill would give us a hope of success.
- The soil taught us how to be grounded in our life and how generosity and humbleness would make us stay happy.
In the midst of my deep thoughts, i forgot that it’s been long since we took a break in our journey. It was time for us to resume our expedition at what is called the “Paradise on earth”.
