Entering a new milestone

Image
It just feels like yesterday when I stepped out of my teens and entered the 20s bracket. And a decade has just flown by. I found myself entering a new milestone since yesterday.

They say you are as old as you feel you are. And its absolutely right. With a positive mindset everything looks radiant around you. I have never felt fitter, more enthusiastic towards life.

We got a glimpse of the lovely Mughal gardens which were blooming with flowers of different kinds. It made us realize why the Mughal emperor Jahangir called it the land of Eternal Spring.

We also visited places like Sonmarg, Gulmarg and Pahalgam. Each place was beautiful in its own way. These places offer horse riding options. Gulmarg possesses the highest cable car in the world which takes you up 13000 ft above sea level. It is also known for winter sports like skiing and ice-skating.

We learnt a lot during this trip. We met the Kashmiri locals who yearn for more tourists to visit their wonderland. The past political turbulence has affected Tourism to a large extent. However it’s extremely safe now. And we met the Indian army Jawans as wel…
