Holiday!! (Blog marathon post 29)

Am on vacation!
At this beautiful spot. As I type this there is the soft patter of rain outside. Crickets chirping. And a lily pond-- with ducks in them. A million shades of green.
Peace, bliss and happiness.

The Internet is well--intermittent. So kindly forgive me for this very short post. I need to send this before the net goes again! (I wanted t post a photo but the net is toooooo slow)

Any guesses where I am? :)

I shall tell you the answer tomorrow---which incidentally will be the last post of this marathon :)
So bye for now---hope your day has been great as well!

  6. Awwww... the blog marathon comes to an end. So soon ??!!??!

    But thank you Preeti for writing from so hectic schedules that you have. Your writing inspires many, and you know that. For me, your blogs are like a sweet peep within myself as every post urges me to think something deep crusted within my soul over years and years. It rejuvenates me from the routine.

    Your lily pond took me to my last vacation which was at Jim Corbett National Park... i kept smiling and smiling and the lily pond helped me catch few of my sweet memories. Thanks once again. And yes, enjoy your vacation !!

Greetings from Cherrapunji --A heart shaped rock and other true stories (post 28)

We began our day with a trek down the mountains, through the pine forests. We didn't have a guide. Satish and I decided to explore the path on our own. It was slippery in many places, and we had to be certain of our footing, else we would have tumbled down. Tall coniferous trees formed dense canopies, through which sunlight couldn't trickle down. Ferns, spider-webs, mushrooms and pine-cones dotted the path. It was dark, damp, green and oh so pure. We walked down slowly, and a magnificent sight greeted us. I am sharing a picture I clicked.


We climbed back, contented happy souls. We found a vantage point from where we had a view of this very lake that we had trekked down to. I stood there and made a painting.


After breakfast, we left forCherrapunjee.

Just before we reached Cherrapunjee, we took a diversion went to The Garden of Caves in Laitmawsiang. The sight is mesmerising, stunning, fascinating. It is a must-do if you ever visit North-East. The main attraction is the natural…

Meghalya --kissed by the clouds (post 26)

Greetings from Meghalaya. True to it's name, it is a place kissed by the clouds. As I type this, from my picture window, the rain falls gently outside making a pitter-patter sound. It feels like I am living inside a poem.

We drove from Shillong to Mawlynnong, which has earned the moniker of Asia's cleanest village. The drive itself was arduous, as the mountain roads are terrible. Since I ave been so many times to the Western ghats in South India, this just seemed like a poor cousin in comparison. The roads in South India are much much better. After a bone-rattling torturous car ride, we arrived tired and hungry. We ate at a small restaurant (sticky rice, watery dal and some kind of delicious chutney made of onion, tomato and green chillies loosely pounded). Then we began our walk to see the living root bridges.

That was AMAZING. It is a sight worth seeing. I felt the forests in Avatar movie had come alive from the sets and had been resurrected here. I couldn't help marve…
