There are two kinds of people in the world, I believe, one those who Love camping and the second is those who Have Not Yet Done camping. There is no other class who does not love it. Here in my thoughts I put down, why it is so essential to us. Though there are hundred reasons and effects that can be found, here is the three basic and most pivotal of them, according to me.
1. Time is a perspective.
From childhood, humans are trained to be time oriented. Our life is ruled by a dimension found by us and now dictate over it. Wrong as it is, we are merely slave of it un till you realize that it is nothing but a perspective. While camping, mornings necessary does not mean alarm clocks, you wake up yourself with the first rays of sun and chirping of the birds. You do not eat because there is a time to breakfast and lunch, but because you feel hungry! Hence, if you are regular to camping you give up the notion of worrying about Time and its concept as created by man. You just do things because you feel like doing it. Following this, you would not age just because the man made principles and a hospital document states it so, neither will you bemoan things that you have not done earlier, instead will figure out a way to do it when you feel it to be.
2. Worth of oneself.
When you camp in a vast meadow in front of a mountain or a ocean, often do we just roll our eyes in awe at the hugeness of the things in front of us. At night we might see the milky way galaxy spiraling the sky or uncountable stars making our roof. Well the awe is actually our understanding of how vast is actually this universe and its elements. I am sure everyone who has ever camped has had this effect. The magnitude and intensity of this elements are beyond our basic calculations, and then in a slight moment, you feel so worthless standing in front of them. You feel so insignificant, so small and so negligible. It is a good thing, we understand, our worth. Feeling insignificant also gives us the notion of how small is our worries and stresses. For all that is out of our control and we shall not change anything with our stress and worrying about it. It will result in making you feel free and unburdened with a lot of useless conceptions we are fed with. Hence, you shall live more happy and free.
3. Nature is the Cure.
We might invent and discover new techniques and machines, medicines and other stuffs, but we cannot mark our efficiency of curing abilities that of nature and its elements. From producing natural happiness and kindling peace in us to inspiring us to have a better living, nature is the solution to all our problems. The shiny green of the nature is the best cure to eyes, walking on green meadows in bare feet helps the best of blood circulations. No medicine can do such stuff guranted. Health is always kept up to mark by the touch of nature. No anti depression pills will work so magic as does a camping and your time in the open vastness. Hence, men can make medicines, nature makes miracles.
There are so many other effects surely yet. Let me know which one is your favorite and you believe it so. To head for a camping soon kindly connect now.
Finally the summers are over and along with it, busy season for all of us in the mountain. Summers are crazy with no peace almost half of a year's earnings are to be made in summers hence we keep on grinding ourselves on those days. We turn a little bit money minded and the special personal caring attention to our trekkers and travelers is often not possible. Somehow, I personally wait for the summers to pass for the inner wanderlust is not awakened un till the monsoon comes.
Monsoon is rebirth and freshness. As the new tiny grasses sprawl and make its way to life so does our soul. Seeing the all green forest brighten up again, helps our mind and soul to think of rebirth and beginning. No more rush crowd of people, no more fancy tourist hording the places. Only travelers and backpackers mostly dare to wander during the monsoon.
I have met most number of true backpackers in monsoon only. People who ply in the rain truly wants to see something surely. The monsoon comes with a lot of uncertainties. Land slides, road block and stuff, yet those of you who dwell in it, travel in it are true seekers. You know how to dance in the rain, rather waitinf for the storm to pass.
There are people of a stupid kind who are afraid of the rain. Its only water, not poison !
For me, what can be better than to sit in a serene cafe sipping hot chocolate, by the window, watching the drizzles bathing the leafs and tiny grasses. What can be better, than be relieved from the hating heat, by the rain drenching us like a mother showering love. What can be better than hiking in monsoon, to see all around bright and green like the new life sprawling from everlasting youth, clouds swipping past your body like love and peace embracing the soul. What can be better?
Surely if this feelings also beat in your heart and head, July, august September is your time as a traveller to know the monsoon in this mountains. Why wait ?
