My Dream?“Travelling to Ladakh on a rented Motorcycle(Royal Enfield500CC Classic) with friends and capping it off by visiting TajMahal” travelling via “Highway to Heaven” and ending at “Thebest Jewel of Art in India”(15-day trip). Motorbiking in Leh Ladakh is my ultimate Dream. There is nothing that compares to the echoes of Enfield bullets regular, pleasing firing as you ride through a cold desert plain, surrounded by rocky mountains.
Why Ladakh?There is a pleasure in the pathless woods There is a rapture on the lonely shoreThere is society, where none intrudesBy the deep sea, and music in its roarI love not man the less, but Nature more...
Why Agra after Ladakh? Love, History, BeautyTaj is not a piece of architecture,as other buildings are,but the proud passions of an emperor’s lovewrought in living stones Greatest Testament of Love on the face of earthTransition: “Organized” “Wild” “Order”
Why with friends?Reminiscing Fun Sharing the experienceConfidence Safety

The Lasting Impact “You come back, get busy with your lives, few months later you just close your eyes,and you can hear the wind flowing through your helmet, all you can see is a vast brown barren terrain, an endless road, a wild stretch and you experience an odd calmness in wild”Ladakh always makes a lasting impact.

Why is this important?When we are in college we make huge promises of alwayskeeping in touch(watching Manchester United thrash Arsenaltogether on a home theatre sitting on bean bags gulping beer)and then when you are in job you realize how impossible thosedreams are, How you always live alone with the feeling of livinganother day not talking to friends, How countless plans to partytogether keep getting cancelled for one reason or the other. Andthen suddenly you stop missing your friends. Alas!!!I would like trip to be something we can cherish for our entirelives. Maybe we can even do a ZNMD, our “Zindagi Na MilegiDubara”.
