This was an unusual Sunday morning. I woke up around 6 am and was super excited to start my day. I jumped from my bed, opened my cupboard and took out my clothes, and rushed to the bathroom. I waited for the bucket to fill with warm water. I took a hot water bath and within an hour I was ready.
My bag was packed with chocolates, water bottles, a cap, sunscreen, and some cash just in case. I left the apartment and I reached my pickup point in ten minutes. The travel guide called me as the bus was there to pick me up at the point. He introduced himself in a very cheerful manner, I sat in the bus and the journey began.
We hauled at a place to have breakfast. Although I am not so fond of the food items containing rice in it, I ordered masala dosa. Everything about this day was so good. My food smelt better, I had good company. We all had started to talk by then.
Then the bus headed to a small village, where we got down. We packed our lunch and started to walk. There was a railway line, we walked for two kilometers across the line. I could see clear sky and orange mud all around me. The whole place was covered with lush green trees.
Fresh air does something to you. I had started to think about all the good possibilities of life. I felt positive. I gazed at the mountain that we had to climb.
Honestly I was intimidated at first but then, I said to myself I can do this. I took a deep breath and we started to climb.
It was a sunny day. We were about ten people in a group. I had three liters of bottled water with me. I had never done rock climbing before in my life. This was the first time and I had very less idea about it. And then I just started to climb with all my energy.
I carefully judged my steps and held the rocks. There were thorny bushes, snakes and weird insects crawling here and there and I was a bit scared. But nothing stopped me from going up. I had Bluetooth speaker and it played all my favorite songs which pumped me up.
We stopped twice in between as I was tired. And I kept on looking at the valley beneath. It kept me motivated as to how far I had come. I kept on looking at the peak of the hill where I was supposed to reach. I kept on motivating myself and the fellow trekkers with me.
They told me to slow down, but I could not a lot of times as I was thrilled by the things I could do that I did not know I could do. I gave them a helping hand in between. I reached one big bolder where I was judging as to where and how should I climb. And then I heard a voice, do u need a hand? I looked up and there was a group of students from some college who were resting there for a while.
I said yes willingly and raised my arm, he held my palm tight and pulled me. I thanked him and moved ahead. After 2 hours we were on the top of the hill. I could not stop myself but to admire the beauty of the nature around me. It felt unreal. Everything seemed so small. All the efforts, the fatigue, the times I hurt my knee, the sweat, and the heat brought me to a spot where all I could feel was fresh air, and beautiful sight all around me.
My happiness had no bounds, I shouted wooohoooo! And let the fresh oxygen in me.
The fellow trekkers laughed about how the guy helped me and left right after me and did not offer the other ladies a hand. We all talked about food, shoes, bikes, other planned treks and what not.
We played a few games after resting for a while. Games that I had never heard about, but it was really fun. There was a dog which followed us from the railway tracks till the top of the hills. He was always right behind me. He slept next to where I sat, I pat his head and let him rest for a while. The dog had lost his left rear limb some time ago. I felt bad for him. I gave him some of my food and water. He stopped where I stopped, he kept on looking back to see if I were following.
A local man came to talk to me to generally ask me about something, but he had a stick in his hand .This dog was so protective that he started to bark and did not let him near me. I smiled and thought to myself such a lovely creature. I had made a friend and good memories.
