WPC: Awakening

With Spring finally here, we have started to hear the songs of birds awakening us from our slumber in the mornings.



“Always be like a water. Float in the times of pain or dance like waves along the wind which touches its surface.”

PS: Taken in Chinnar during our trek. First photograph is my attempt at waterfall model. There wasn’t much water in the river so it was little difficult to try it. But nevertheless I did try 😉

WPC: Quest

“Though the quest may take its toll,
We’ll march until we reach our goal,

― Brian Jacques

That is exactly what we did when we decided to do our 2-3 hour trekking in Chinnar (on the way to Munnar). We wanted to spot some wildlife even though there weren’t any chances of it because of the hot and humid weather (the lack of monsoon had its toll in that area)


I got a new pair of shoes because this was a last minute decision and I did not have any of my shoes with me at that time. Very cool shoes, don’t you think 😉 ?


And finally after an hour into the dry and deserted trek, look what we found. They were in a huge group, so I had my time to get my zoom lens out. Looked like those deer’s were in their quest to get some shade.


There is our guide, who was in his own quest to spot that lone wild elephant we saw during our drive to Chinnar.


Our trekking did not end here. We ended up walking to a small stream where we found beautiful birds. But that is for another day.

I leave you with an imagery of the beautiful Western Ghats seen from Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. Can you see the small green roof? That is where our trek started. We had such a fun time 🙂 even though by the end of it, we were tanned ( at least my friend was) and I had lost a kg or two just by sweating.



“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the disheveled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire
