**Until next time**
Patiently waiting for his turn amongst the thousands on the beach it's time Lord Ganesha bids farewell until next year.
The euphoria around the festival is just insane. However, the ecological balance really goes for a toss. It's a sorry state of affair at the beach the next day.
This is a strong plea to all the people - let's be responsible. There are many ways to celebrate the fest in an eco-friendly manner. Please adopt them. Let's nurture mother earth. PLEASE :)
Time had yellowed some of its pages but the story lived on. A rusted page reads.............. 2 January ' 16
Back then, we were living carefree days in Kerala.
That day we were destination to Munnar, a hill station situated in the Western Ghats. A 123.8 km journey from Kochi to Munnar was not an easy one to unwind. The serpentine roads gave us spectacular views and motion sickness.
When we waited at a pitstop, I walked up the hilly road. A voice shouted in my mind, "Did you get it or not!?" Basically all that motion sickness is caused by the moving vehicle. It is not at all related to the place, altitude or topography.
I wondered if I could walk up the rest of the route to Munnar. But only if I had the stamina of a superhuman. Why can't we have flights to the exact destination? What if we had landed in Munnar itself. Forget about building a runway, construct helipads, na. I would not succumb and was keen on finding a way out.
Then, we happened to see this picturesque waterfall. And you know who would be the first one to get down from the car. Ya! Because getting down from the car cures motion sickness.
The sound of the waterfall and its clear water captivated me like not other. I splashed some water on my face and drank some more. It felt like it was the most rejuvenating moment ever. It could feel nothing but a calmness. And I wanted it to be there forever.
Only then I knew that it is not just motion sickness that a waterfall can cure, but everything.
