An Incomplete Voyage
I am a Nature freak, so, there are good chances that whenever I get a chance…there is a new exploration going on.
This Weekend also, we planned to visit a nearby sight…which is quite off the sight for normal visitors.
There’s a small river Ashwini, on side of which is situated the gigantic, hustling and bustling structure, Mohan Shakti Heritage Park which is also an upcoming centre for vedic studies. A place worth visit but what we were more intrested in, was a waterfall somewhere near it!!! We had no idea.😮😮😮
Merely after walking for some fifty meters, we felt like lost…no sign of human life…only the babbling of the streams and the company of the woods!!!
I kind of started to have second thoughts.
“Let’s wait for someone“, I said, and we parked ourselves on a huge flat rock visible from the main road. Many vehicles came, stuffed with oodles of tourists, but their ‘no-appearance’ through the bushes was actually discouraging.
“Why aren’t they coming this way?” I thought. The ambiance was little scary considering the wilderness was left to us and us alone.
A few young sturdy guys crossed us with apparent curiosity in their eyes but obviously, they didn’t bother to ask, and moved on. They disappeared in the greenery.To our amazement, no woman dared to put a step on the narrow path.
Once we thought ‘let’s continue‘ but, then the mind gave logics which were difficult to ignore. 🤔🤔
How safe is it to go on your on a path leading to you don’t know where!!!
And keeping in mind the happenings rather mishappenings, in daily life…with a heavy heart I stepped back.I wanted to see the place so badly!!!!😞😞
Why the world is so unsafe that a woman has to think twice everytime before stepping into it???? I agitated inside.
Who has the answer???
It’s only I, who has to see into my safety, but it’s also I, who wants to see the world in its crude form!
So what do I do? Should I give up???
Oh No…I’ll come back… I’ll have to…all prepared so that no fear belittles my desire to explore more and live more…
and till then…
Don’t stop… keep falling, Water!😊😊😊
