From 4 to 40

Ok, so that’s a slight exageration, but it went well with the title. Just got back two days ago from a trek to Kareri Dal lake with an eclectic mix of people. Unusually cold for this time of the year. At one point Rinku was sure she was getting hypothermic! Thankfully, we all returned hail and hearty withg a few twisted muscles and achy bones..
Went in with a bunch of strangers and made some great friends by the end of it.. Learnt loads, of photography, forms and life in general. Got caught in a hailstorm minus a rain cover; walked through rain- drenched to the bones; distributed medication, worked feet and ate sumptuous meals :). Heard Rahul do the classic ” cuckadkoo”, Rinku the ” tum gaao, mein so jaun ( you sing, i will go to sleep), Poonam who couldn’t handle the nuts, Raj kept us entertained with his gusto, smile and unwavering enthusiasm on the stair climbing expedition, Navin who is busy writing his ” F*** the stairs” travelogue, Jacob stumped the locals with his near perfect hindi and endearing smile and finally Rajdeep, the pro of one liners (amongst other things).  Coming back to Delhi was hard as always, this time even more so. Yet, this time I needed to return.

About Namita

A melange of colors, just like the rainbow. Sometimes, as bright as the yellow sun, brimming with energy. Then driven by the passion of red to pursue my dreams. Calm like the clear blue skies and playful like streaks of violets. I am a collection of stories, each different and yet the same. I am simple in my complexities and something in my nothingness. For my bread and butter, I am a reflexologist – a profession which is more than just a job, it is my passion. When I am not busy in conversation with the feet, I potter around with my camera lens, indulge in good music and snuggle in with my books. And when my energies begin running low, nothing perks me more than traveling to unknown places, meeting all sorts of people and exchanging tall stories. I am a founding trustee of the Uday Public Charitable Trust that hopes to provide the gift of education to children of martyred soldiers and also other deserving children. It is a cause close to my heart. My gypsy heart cannot sit still and I must always move, explore…The mountains call out ever so often and I am off with my backpack. Trek, trek, trek…I want to push my limits always..rediscover my fears and move forward with my strengths. i love myself and my life, I must be god’s favorite child . With much to do and much to see, i am on the brink of another journey, always.
