રસ્તો નહીં જડે તો રસ્તો કરી જવાના,
થોડા અમે મૂંઝાઈ મનમાં મરી જવાના?
નિજ મસ્ત થઈ જીવન આ પૂરું કરી જવાના,
બિન્દુ મહીં ડૂબીને સિન્ધુ તરી જવાના!
કોણે કહ્યું કે ખાલી હાથે મરી જવાના?
દુનિયાથી દિલના ચારે છેડા ભરી જવાના!
છો ને ફર્યા, નથી કંઈ દી'થી ડરી જવાના!
એ શું કરી શક્યા છે, એ શું કરી જવાના!
મનમાં વિચાર શું છે? અવિરામ કંઈ દીપક છે
પ્રકાશ આંધીઓમાં પણ પાથરી જવાના!
એક આત્મબળ અમારું દુ:ખ માત્રની દવા છે,
હર જખ્મને નજરથી ટાંકા ભરી જવાના!
સ્વયં વિકાસ છીંએ, સ્વયં વિનાશ છીંએ!
સ્વયં ખીલી જવાના, સ્વયં ખરી જવાના!
સમજો છો શું અમોને સ્વયં પ્રકાશ છીંએ!
દીપક નથી અમે કૈં ઠાર્યા ઠરી જવાના!
અય કાળ, કંઈ નથી ભય, તું થાય તે કરી લે,
ઈશ્વર સમો ધણી છે થોડા મરી જવાના!
દુનિયા શું કામ ખાલી અમને મિટાવી રહી છે?
આ ખોળિયું અમે ખુદ ખાલી કરી જવાના.
Those were the days wandering in the open streets ,marvelling at the mountains ,the blue skies and in search of the never seen landscapes!!.
Those were the days in Spiti🏔️ Even in this air of melancholy, a memory of the trip brings absolute happiness in my heart.
MAIN MONASTERY – SPITI VALLEY'S LARGEST MONASTERY!
The monastery is situated just above the village of Key. The Key Gompa is situated at an altitude of 12,800 feet. The path from Kaza to Key Monastery is roughly 15 km. The Key Gompa (also written as Kyi or Kee) is reported to be more than 1000 years old. It's one of the most famous locations in the Spiti Valley after Chandra Tal Lake. Most significant of all, it is the main monastery in the valley of Spiti. This is also a well-known Buddhist study center. Most Lamas remain in the monastery and complete their Buddhist schooling.
This monastery has a number of ancient literature and objects that reflect a buddhist culture. Various Buddhist relics and scriptures are on show in the monastery.
It also has a separate Stupa containing the ashes of the great translator Rinchen zangpo, also known as Mahaguru. He has translated numerous Buddhist Sanskrit texts into the Tibetan language. Therefore he is very well respected in the Budhist culture.
Leaving Key Gompa, I went through the village of Kibber. I wandered around the village for a couple of minutes and took some photos.
This empty roads says many things in itself...how beautiful this are....u know why?
Because of us...because we humans don't live here. Seeing this roads and nature around it i always feel sad, how we had treated with this earth which is such a beautiful and magical place. And I know this place would also turn into a mess in coming years, because still now i had seen many literate people throwing garbage, spitting etc on this roads, i stopped many as much as i can do but if they didn't feel the same i feel inside their heart our earth would not be as beautiful as we are seeing it today. So i request everyone atleast spare some parts of this beautiful creation of god.
Any suggestions from anyone if we can do anything to save the environment.
BTW Covid-19 has pros of itself, it's doing positive things for the environment lowering the Air pollution to half, as many says there is always pros and cons of everything.
With the current lockdown and everyone stuck indoors we bring you 10 photo stories from our Adventures in Ladakh so you can live through these expeditions in the virtual world.
First up is Parang La through photos taken in 2018 by Sudhanshu, Pooja, Sumit, Aarati Sriram & Vaibhav Kala. Link to the full story in our Bio:

Covering an area of about 60,000 sq kms and ranging in elevation from 2,600 m to 7,670 m, Ladakh is sandwiched between two huge mountain systems: the Karakorams to the north and the Himalayas to the south. Ladakh is the Trans-Himalayan region, the region of impact when the Indian subcontinent collided with the rest of Asia 50 million years ago.
The Border Roads Organization does a great job linking the frontiers of the country with their masterful artistry of making motorable lanes out of sheer rock.
One such route connects the Spiti valley with Ladakhi Changthang and is still used as the main trail for trade and travel in these areas. The Parang La (pass), at 5,600 meters, forms the source of the Pare Chu river, an amazing river system which rises to the north of the Parang La, traveling 30 kilometers eastwards and turning sharply south to enter Tibet. After flowing 85 kilometers through the plateau, it changes its course westerly to re-enter India near its confluence with the Spiti river at Sumdo, on the Hindustan Tibet road, 33 kilometers before reaching Tabo.

What a roller coaster of a ride it was, crossing some of the highest mountain passes to wading through streams and rivulets to reach another beauty of a place.
Can't wait to go back again to this wonderland ❄️
What are your escape plans after the lockdown ?

Invest yourself carefully.
Invest your emotions where they are needed the most. Too much of everything is dangerous. Too much of involvement into work, human emotions, news, media or whatever can give you anxieties. So, try to balance and be aware where you are investing yourself and give time to heal yourself even if you are giving so much time to anything.
Because it is not good to lose yourself while achieving something else. So, calm your horses down, meditate and then invest.
A gorgeous summer view of Chicham Bridge, Asia’s highest suspension bridge located at an altitude of roughly 4,150m above sea level. Connecting the villages of Kibber and Chicham, the bridge overlooks a 1000 foot drop into the Samba Lamba Nallah as it meanders it’s way to join the Spiti River.
