“Life is like the river, sometimes it sweeps you gently along and sometimes the rapids come out of nowhere.”~Emma Smith~

Diwali holidays was going to start .I was in Delhi with a mind-set not to burst any crackers.But how to get ride of the noise.People were already in celebration mode.After all it’s Delhi ,the Capital of India.

I can always escape .That’s what my heart says to mind.What next !Packed my bag and off to Rishikesh.

Many times I had been asked that “Don’t I feel scared of travelling alone.Its always needed some adventure in your life to spice it up. Don’t you agree ?

Driving Route : Ghaziabad – Meerut – Muzaffarnagar – Rorkee- Rishikesh- shivpuri

The road condition is ok and after Meerut , you will find a single lane road. Rush hour traffic is much expected.

It took us 5 hour to reach.Our breakfast point was “Raja sikanji ” and lunch at famous “Chotiwala” at haridwar.Though i didn’t find anything special at chotiwala veg thali.

I spent my Diwali evening beside the Ganges. The mesmerizing sound of the flows and the calmness of nature made my day.Far from the city’s noise of bursting crackers. Why can’t the festival of lights be celebrated without noise. Today generation fails to understand the significance of any festival.They focus more on celebration.

The very next day I went to Rishikesh and visited “parmarth niketan Ashram”. The ghat at parmarth ashram is clean and well maintained unlike the other few ghats.

In the evening we went to Triveni Ghat for Ganga Aarati that usually  takes place on all ghats in the evening, after sunset. The Ganges,national river of India is worshiped as the holiest river by Hindus and its water is used in all rituals.
