A Look Back

Time: 08:30 PM
Mumbai

It’s just when you start valuing things that exist in your life, you lose them. I have this blog for a couple of years now and off late I have been posting very less. In fact, I put out a post on last  Tuesday exactly after a year. Although this redundant space on the internet was lying around unused, I had it in the back of my mind. Life just happened and I could never make myself write good enough for a blog post. I’d partly blame my growing interest in photography for this. Last year (March 2015), I purchased a second hand Canon 550D from a friend and life is now viewed from behind its lens. I have started to appreciate people who regularly post content online for the world to see, thanks to the arduous task that is photo and video editing. Anyway I’m digressing from what I wanted to say. So I forgot to renew  my Wordpress hosting and now I have lost all my posts. The charges for retrieving my data was not something I felt I deserved spending on considering the fact that I’d posted just once in the last year. It feels terrible. Data that I have lost contained blogs I’d written years ago including some of my travel posts which I hoped I’d cherish in the years to come. A part of me feels bad but I am also happy I took the decision of not retrieving them. I wouldn’t have realised how I was keeping myself away from the happiness this gives me. This whole fiasco is dramatic in its own way. What I make of this space remains to be seen.

For now, here are some pictures I’d like you to cherish from a post I put up last year when I was in London.

You can check out all my other pictures on Instagram.

(In case it is of any interest to you, I shot them on a Canon 550D using a Tamron lens. Editing was done on Lightroom and filters on VSCO.)

Trek in Mumbai – Yogi Hills Mulund

What an incredible city is Mumbai! It has something for everyone. It has the seas, the lakes and the river (infamous for its filth and floods but it’s got it). Despite the ever increasing urban population, Mumbai has somehow managed to keep intact one of the largest urban national parks in the world, Sanjay Gandhi National Park. I have been living in this city for all my life but never thought I’d be able to go for a trek barely 20 kms from my house.

Yogi Hills in Mulund West is an easy trek that takes an hour to the top. There are number of blogs that talk about how to get there, so we won’t talk about it. I want to share with you the incredible view it has to offer. I’ll be honest I didn’t expect it to be so amazing.

Not only does it have this view but the trek had amazing fauna as well. I’d suggest using a mosquito repellent before you start, you’ll meet some proper quality mosquitoes on the way. Blood suckers. Check these creatures I met on the way.

Give a thumbs up if you liked pictures.
