Volunteering for Gosaikunda free Medical health Camp by Shed the Light

Gosaikunda Lake Every year thousands of people from India and Nepal travel to Gosaikunda lake (it is an alpine freshwater lake in Nepal’s Langtang National Park, located at an altitude of 4,380 m) to attend the festival of Gangadashahara and the Janai Purnima (Rakshabandhan). Gosaikunda is believed to have been created by Lord Shiva when…

Getting to Nepal by Bus

I reached Nepal by four yesterday evening. It took me a thirty-two-hour long bus-ride from Delhi to get to Kathmandu. The reason I chose bus was, it’s cheap and you get to see the changing terrain rather than flying from one city to the other, skipping it all in the middle. The best part was…

A day out in the dust

I went out to take pictures today. My aim was to take some shots of dust. How dust takes over everything around the road, even in the houses. You walk into a deepest room in an Indian house and move your hand over an object, you’ll end up leaving an imprint taking away some dust….

Visiting a photocopy shop

A woman at a clinic counter in Sangrur handed us some papers to get them photocopied. Right when we left the clinic this man came running to us ‘want to get this photocopied?’ he said looking at the papers in my hand. ‘Yes’ I said and he hurried us to his shop. He owned a…

I know its late but…Thanks to everyone

It’s late…I should have written this way before, but at times I was busy and at times just lazy but this post has always been on my mind. I met an amazing family, happiest and friendliest a group can get to a stranger. Emma invited me for a dinner with her folks. We had an…

No, no, no but yes…and knowing Wales

Gael and Ronan warned me about Wales. ‘It’s hilly’ they said. ‘In some parts there are hours long ascends.’ And they laughed every time they said such a thing because they knew warnings didn’t mean anything because I was going to do it, what so ever. I was hard. In wales the highways are laid…

Sweet French Invasion

I am back in London now. I think towards the end of my nearly 1800 kms cycling journey, I stopped feeling the need to write my experience. I believe it was due to the new occurrences and strange landscape I was facing every day. I was so intrigued by them I never thought of writing…

Rain, rain and rain.

So this happened. I had to go to a hospital for some reason, which I’ll explain later. So I left my bike at the campsite I was supposed to be at that evening, it was last Friday night. Hospital discharged me the same evening but I had to stay there till yesterday because there was…

Mark and Elaine

12 August ’16 (4th day) I met a lovely couple in Malmesbury. I was pitching my tent before going for a dinner into the village. I saw somebody standing by. When I looked up, he asked ‘how far have you done today?’, ‘nearly 70kms’ I replied. It was Mark. Mark was there for the weekend…

Meeting the hunting dogs 

I’ll be posting the blogs with a date on the top, the date they were meant to be published. 14 Aug (3rd day of the trip) I thought of writing a blog every other day but I didn’t know it was going to be this tiring. Tiredness isn’t the only reason. My tent is a…

Living Limitless

Me and my father were riding back home on a scooter after I finished my high school. I was sitting in the back. I remember the evening. The cool evening breeze was rushing by and the rice fields on both sides of the road looked calm, covered by soft golden light of the setting sun….
