Jai Hind Dosto 🙏!!!!
How could I forget to mention this???Every group member was unique in his/her own way. Time to introduce this YouTuber who used to start his video shooting with – Jai Hind Dosto . And while we were doing zip line and rappeling he would come and start shooting – Jaise ki aap dekh rahe hai hamare sathi badi himmat se prayas kar rahe hai etc etc and we all used to give some expressions as if we were entering the ring for fights , heheh.
So coming to day 2:
As per the instructions we had to get up by 5.30 . I slept ,setting two alarms – @5.30 , @5.35 . And I did wake up @5.30 . It was all silent out there. I opened the chain of my tent partially and peeped out , I saw a person coming towards our camp having light on his head I wasn’t sure who that person was. So I kept watching without going out. He came and started bonfire . I couldn’t recognize him so I chained up my tent and decided to wait until other members woke up. After 10min Mansi Ben gave a call of wake and then we all left.After breakfast we left for the trek .Rout started showing its true colours just after a few km , you know what I mean right?? It was better initially but as we started climbing up the rout started straightening up. Ajju Bhaiya , another group member who we call doremon , would play music – ” Kar Har Maidan Fateh ” and would say meri “Betiya Chhorose Kam Thodi Hai ” , heheh, and used to offer us candies time to time , just to motivate us a little, that was so sweet of him.We had three boys in our group named Shubham so we call them by their surname to avoid confusion. Hiwase the cutest boy , heheh , Never had a plain face. Every second a new reaction can be spotted on his face. He is a complete entertainer. After walking , we used to sit for a bit by the time people behind reach to us and then used to start walking again together. So Hiwase used to come to us and say, I am not tired it’s because of you people I have to sit otherwise I might have reached the peak by now , Hahaha.While walking, I had collected pretty flowers .
By noon we all had spilt up into three groups , because of the walking speed and the mid breaks. Our group was second in the row . Half a way I started shaking and suddenly was afraid to walk further probably because my blood sugar was low. But thanks to my group I could walk. Pote (Another Shubham )helped me alot to complete the whole trek .
Some of our clicks on our way :
On our way to the peak we met this not so young man who was trekking with just one leg. He inspired us for life . It was his 7th trek to Kalsubai and the very first with his better half. While we were tired he cheered us up . We got our life lesson . His smile made us forget all the fatigue.
And finally we reached the peak. We took pictures enjoyed our little Victory and then had our lunch that we brought with us.
At the peak :
Slipping and walking we came back to the base around @8.00 pm. And here comes the surprise of the day . Our very own YouTuber was missing. He went ahead of all of us , coz he wanted to be the first one to reach the base . But to our surprise he was nowhere.Then boys decided to send us girls back to the camp . Boys went to search for him.We, girls and 5 boys with us came to the camp , had dinner and some went to sleep while we 4-5 people sat around the bonfire waiting for the boys to come with the missing rabbit of our story.We funnily expected Pratik dada making videos in the jungle , heheh . But we were worried for him . Was he fine ?? and what if something happen to him etc etc were thoughts coming to our mind along with those funny imagination of him shootong videos –Jai hind dosto!! Jaise ki Aap Dekh rahe hai mai gum gaya hu , mai ye batana chahunga never come to kalsubai trek , heheh .
While we were waiting at the camp , we chatted about our childhood memories and life altogether. Slowly slowly no. of people awake reduced to three . Around @3am the boys came back with our missing rabbit . And everybody went to their respective tents to sleep as all were tired except us 6 -7 people . Even Pratik said he is sleepy . But I warn not to sleep as its our last night there . He too agreed and our very own dj played music and we all danced for around an hour then talked about ghosts. How could we not?? Ghost stories are the must part of night camping, heheh.We played prank on Mansi Ben . And our very own dj pavan hid behind her tent and waited almost for an hour. And we all pretended as if we were sleepy and got up to go to sleep. As she went near her tent he came from back and she got so scared. We all cracked up.Then we again came back around the bonfire ,chatted random things. Then went to take walk around the river side and finally @5.30am we went to tents to sleep.So that’s how our day summoned.We lived there for three days, two nights without any network , away from the social media and all the crowd. But none of us missed phone. We all were happy in the dreamy world of memories . I am happy that I made to those last 3 seats. I thankfully decided at the last minute , otherwise I might have missed on such precious memories I have today with all those people who were unknown to me .
So how did the boys reach our rabbit ??It’s another story. 😛
Pratik dada , the missing rabbit, had taken the wrong route while coming back and reached another village joint by the rout . There he found little bit of network so he contacted parents of one of our group members. Her father is a cop so he contacted the forest officers of the area and they contacted the police patil of the village and got into touch with the boys. As complicated as it sounds. And yes he did shoot a video while he was in the jungle for 3 hours , not to disappoint anyone, hahaha. But I must say he had courage and patience so without giving up he tried whatever he could . We really pulled his leg till the end and even now we miss no chance to remind him of the incidence, heheh.That’s all about Day 2 .Next morning we had breakfast and left the dreamy world behind .
Day 3 : That Day our journey back to our real world started.
We wasted not a single minute coz we knew those moments were never gonna come back. And journey became memorable with our very own Nagin – Mr deshmukh (3rd Shubham) . We have his some exclusive dance videos , lucky us, hahahah . Mr. shayar can kill me for sharing exclusive pictures of him .
So that’s how we spent our 3 days 4 nights journey .
- We brought back a basket full of memories , experiences and inspiration .
- Trek taught me pushing my boundaries and not giving up till I reach the peak.
- Trek taught me moving on patiently .
- Trek taught me we all have different capacities . We all reach the peak for sure, some little early , some little late .
- Trek taught me ,walking little slowly and reaching little late doesn’t make me a looser.
- And on lighter note, ” Trek gave us live example of rabbit-turtle story “
