Realizing nature's paradox: Uttarakhand

Last year 2012, I had roamed in and around the Valley of Flowers, Kuari Pass, Badrinath, Hemkund Sahib.. Those memories and the immense beauty around, they are still fresh in my mind..

The current devastation around these same places makes me wonder..
How the very same nature can contradictorily strike back with all its fury... Hurts to think about the condition of the people who are caught up and are out there suffering..

Tomorrow its going to be another trek into the mountains, into the Himalayas, with some amazing friends..

Coz as its said..

"The core of man's spirit comes from new experiences. "

And ultimately in Lord Byron's words..
"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods;
There is a rapture on the lonely shore; There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar;
I love not man the less, but Nature more..."

With the hope that nature and the mighty Himalayas.. would shower on us with all its grandeur and beauty..
