“It is always the same with mountains. Once you have lived with them for any length of time, you belong to them. There is no escape.”
– Ruskin Bond, Rain in the Mountains
This blog is about Sahyadri. About Men, Mountains and the bonds formed in between.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, a stone’s throw from the Sahyadri range, it is indeed strange that my first tryst with mountains was in the form of a collection of short stories by Ruskin Bond and it was mesmerizing! He made me fall in love with the simple, flawed people in his stories and, with Mountains.
For Mountains, weren’t merely the setting of his stories. They were a living, breathing character in their own right. Years later, in 2011, I first stepped on the terrain that would go on to become my second home and I have kept going back ever since!
As the years passed by, I began documenting my escapades as a way to immortalise the lesser-known trails of Sahyadris while providing essential information to prospective trekkers and that is how, A Season Of Mountains, was born. The blog posts, categorised as Treks, Trips & Resources, open with a brief overview that includes maps, alternative routes & other technical data followed by a comprehensive account of my experience along with relevant pictures.
It takes me anywhere from a couple of days to a few weeks to put together a blog post to the best of my abilities and hence, it’ll be a while before all the drafts, 27 at the last count, go live on the blog.
In the meantime, I suggest you grab a cup of tea (I personally prefer coffee 😉 ), find a cozy corner and immerse yourself in my world… the world of Mountains…
