A Solo Bike Trip: Delhi to Kanyakumari
Why is there a new hymn about the journey and not the destination? What does it take to be a traveler? What does it take to travel six thousand km on a bike? These are the few questions apart from managing funds, putting a month’s leave from office at stake, convincing your parents, and believing in yourself to accomplish a dream. So in between all this fuss, it was my time to travel from Delhi to Kanyakumari, my dream trip. With two days of planning for surviving twenty days on the bike from only here to there. With a beautiful start from the Arawalis of Rajasthan, sunset at Daman, kissing the Dudhsagar Waterfalls, riding from the Deccans, through the streets of Kerala, arriving at the Southernmost tip of India, Kanyakumari; A destination of not dreams but a journey above the dreams. Yes, it looks haphazard because the trip was too unplanned, but filled with adrenaline, with always decreasing fuel level and my pocket, but the enthusiasm was always there. It was all about the roads, my riding capacity, and my excitement to get the answers to so many questions. Now let’s not dig to the answers but the journey of finding these answers!!
The entire area only for the students, this is Lappis for you, Around the Baltic backwaters and amazing forest view, Known for the student parties, known for the happening life, Around the Stockholm center, with an evergreen eternal beautiful vibe!
A time comes where the hands stop writing,But still, you need to put your words for binding!
Now coffee is a medium than a beverage, For small talks, to sound like sage, To discuss the life stories, or to keep the heart out, To keep alive, during the sleepy bout!
KTH, Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden This time the college life is much different, There is not much in and around, There is fika, there are other vibrant, But there is not much in and around, The place is above the dreams, More than beautiful it seems, The sheen and elegance of Stockholm, The art in every stone, Yet there is not much in and around, Might be the mind is not much around !
Sometimes you are much more passionate yet realistic,Sometimes you have energy, yet artistic,Sometimes this is your profession, yet you are fascinated,Sometimes you have all physics laws yet remains uncalculated,Sometimes it demands efforts out of your brains processing,Yet you like the craft as you cuddle it from raw to manufacturing !!
In the loud world, sometimes mirror speaks the most, It reflects sometimes hazy yet true to the host, Behind the shimmer, behind the glare, You are subtle and aware!
Sometimes you feel the positivity, sometimes you feel the blank brightness, Sometimes you wait it to hide behind the clouds, sometimes you miss the sheer suaveness, Sometimes you need the rays, sometimes you need bright and wise, Sometimes you wait till sunset, sometimes you praise the sunrise !
Yes, I too have to think deep to nurture, To bring the same joy and vesture, I too sit to look what is forefront, To cuddle my loved ones and be their paramount!
Let’s stare in hate, let’s stare in love, Let’s stare in anger, let’s stare in verve, Let’ stare to inspire, let’s stare to respect accomplishments, Let’s look deep into eyes to forgive the foolishness!
