As part of my backpack trail, I visited and stayed at Sadhana Forest early in June this year. The plan was to stay for a minimum of 2 weeks, but since I’d already over shot my schedule and budget, all I could afford was staying in for 4 days, at least getting a feel for the place, reassurance for the desire to go back for a longer duration. Here is a short abstract from the full feature on Tripoto.

Family, a predefined circle of a genetic spread,
To ensure their succession and well-being
Outside of this illusive bubble,
It’s not your problem, not your worry.

Thing’s I’ve been thinking of like clock work,
(Ever since I’ve been back from a short backpacking trip)
The morning call and feels at Sadhana Forest

The chai and mud on Auro streets
The kids and meals from Mahabs Beach
The ancient lit fire and energies from Kashi
The water, clay and skies at the Ganges
My backpack as my home
All the trying times and injuries that now make me strong

but a doors been opened,
Can’t wait to hit the road again!

A few of you might know already I had planned a backpack trip through northern India. However everything in this existence has its own plan charted out. Only this time I wasn’t in on it. Given all the efforts of trying to get transport between states sorted, nothing worked out. Just nothing! It kept coming at me through multiple channels, when things have to happen they happen. When they aren’t meant at the time, no matter what it won’t happen. Continue reading Travel has its own plan
