It was a sunny morning at Dalhousie. Our little niece, Urvi, was away at school and it was just us kids (at heart at least) at home. We had about 3 hours of idle time so we decided to check out the nearby Panchpula waterfalls. The falls were 4 km from our home and we decided to walk the way.
Because of monsoon, we were happy to see, Panchpula had ample water. We climbed up as high as we could and found a group of men coolly bathing in the pool beneath the waterfall. Very coolly, we too stepped in. And oh the shock! The water was icy cold. After a few seconds, our feet went numb, and we couldn't feel much.
Ever notice how traveling down the memory lane is like traveling on a super-fast train. Everything outside the windows is a blur except the stations where the train stops for a bit and you are able to take in the surroundings with a little more clarity. Some places we have visited in the past stand out like these train stations for some reason or the other. One of them is Llandudno, a little resort town on the North Shore of the Irish sea.
आज पहली बार इस ब्लॉग पे में हिंदी में एक पोस्ट लिखने की कोशिश कर रहा हूँ। और शायद काफी गलतियां भी करूँगा। कृपया मेरी गलतियों को अनदेखा करें। धन्यवाद उन हिंदी ब्लागरों का जिन्होंने ये याद दिलाया कि हमारा देश हिंदीभाषी देश है और ज़्यादातर लोग हिंदी अच्छे से समझते हैं। मेरी कोशिश रहेगी की मैं महीने में एक हिंदी पोस्ट पक्का लिखूं।
तो आज मैं आपको ले के चलता हूँ एक छोटी और खूबसूरत जगह, जिसका नाम है बरोट. ये एक छोटा सा गांव है भारत देश के हिमालयन राज्य हिमाचल प्रदेश में. यूँ तो ये मंडी ज़िले में पड़ता है, परंतु दिल्ली से जाना हो तो आपको पालमपुर और बैजनाथ होकर जाना चाहिए। दिल्ली का ज़िक्र इसलिए किया क्योंकि ये एक ऐसी जगह है जहा से रास्ता हर कोई समझ सकता है। आप अपने शहर से बरोट का रास्ता आराम से पता कर सकते हैं। Google Maps भी आपकी सहायता कर सकते हैं।
