Dehradun And Mussorrie (India) .

A garland of formidably handsome mountains; royally decked
up in beautifully unparalleled tufts of emerald green vegetation,

Dense and astoundingly profound clusters of clouds floating in
unfettered abandon; kissing the farthermost epitomes of the
hills with untold stories of enamoring benevolence,

Delightfully robust creeks weaving their way in an unabashed
freshness through the rocky swirl; as they eventually melanged
with sobriety atthe rock bottom of the river bed,

Tantalizing waterfalls of immaculate white froth cascading
majestically into a mist triumphant optimism; that thoroughly
charmed the spirit of a commercially depraved and
impoverished existence,

Exuberant and curved lanes through the gigantic slopes that
rhapsodically led a beleaguered traveler to one of his most
cherished destinations; in an adventure towards exhilarating

Fiercely mischievous monkeys gnawing at fruits of myriad
shapes and proportions - feasting at those occasional
succulent crumbs hurled by children - without giving a trifle
damn to vehicles that whizzed past at whirlwind speeds,

Sporadic thunderstorms accompanied with indomitably
passionate streaks of silver lightening; that triggered
unmatched infernos of desire through the solitariness of
untainted valley,

An instantaneous spell of torrential rain whilst sipping
marvelous hot tea in the garden; which to the utter and
incredulous amazement yielded impeccable white pearls of the
seasons virgin snow,

An entire Herculean maze of tall trees that constituted the royal
approach to the spectacular city; an entrenchment so thickly
foliated; that it was here that wildlife existed to its unhesitatingly
glorious best,

An unprecedented chill in the atmosphere as the night
romantically descended in the pristine gorge; and the woolens
which had become so obsolete in the sweltering city now
snatched impromptu from the innermost corners of the

Unbelievably tall peaks clad in frosty coats of ice; looming
large and phlegmatically into the distant horizons as the car
entered and swerved sharply towards the last motorable patch
on the extraordinarily tenacious rock,

A gloriously golden dawn which brought alongwith it an
optimistic desire to excel for the cause of goodness and truth -
as the invincible fireball of Sun brilliantly empowered the
surface of earth with the light of love and friendship,

Gregarious grass buds sensuously draped in dew; with frogs
joyously scampering through the plush lawns - as nimble feet
indisputably relished their compassionate stroll on the ground
after ages; early morning,

Tourists flocking from different parts of the globe; at their
vibrantly colorful best; cherishing the verdant landscapes and
that steeped to incomprehensibly surreal heights - ultimately
ending into bits of ebullient open space,

A veritable treat for true lovers who philandered and flirted in
compassionate desire; on a land which was replete with
sumptuously ecstatic adventure and a serenity that befitted
perfect camaraderie,

Poets, writers - described the town's imperious beauty in
verses, essays, that stupendously enthralled - and artists;
sculptors; delivered their fantabulous best - amidst the aweinspiring
natural environment which mollified the tiniest of

A panoramically adorable facilitator of peace - making the most
spitefully vengeful wholesomely shunt war and abominable
hatred - embrace the fellow living being in the essence of true

The palatial house of my wonderfully impressive grandparents
where I spent some of the most victorious moment of my
childhood - without worrying or contemplating an ounce on the
vagaries of the pompously spurious society,

I salute my revered and sacrosanct birthplace - ‘ Dehradun '
and the imposingly towering queen hills of Mussorrie.
