I know it’s been awhile since I posted anything on the blog, and certainly a long time since the last picture from travel journal. That’s ‘cos sometimes I hadn’t traveled to any new place, or had no time (busier than I thought) & other times I was plain lazy!
Nevertheless, here I am posting about another beautiful place from a visit. Again, excuse me for the picture quality – I’m not a shutterbug, these are from a handy cell phone camera.
Located in Madhya Pradesh, India, at an altitude of 1000m, Amarkantak is a well known Hindu pilgrimage center. With many shrines, legends, beliefs and strong links to mythology it holds an important place in the Hindu society. Bordered by dense forests of three mountain ranges – Satpuras, Vindhya & Maikal and source for two large rivers – Narmada and Sone – the place is a feast for nature lovers.

Dad leading us, he has taken up trekking 4000 KM for 3 years (2.3 years completed already! yayy)

The wonders of nature & its beauty can be seen all around. Even in the simplest of things. The vibrant colors, the magnificent patterns, the artistic designs are all simply brilliant!
Have you ever stopped to wonder how beautiful this cabbage looks with that spiral pattern?
Or the ripples on water?
Or the beautiful autumn leaves?
It is all around you …you can touch & see the beauty.
Look at some of the cool patterns – they are simply beautiful.
A part of an object is an extension of it & inherits all the characteristics of the object itself. So when something is a part of a beautiful object, it’s evident that ‘that’ part is beautiful too, isn’t it? Just re-iterating what you already know…
‘You’ are a part of mystical, powerful & beautiful nature!
Have a great week ahead! Happy monday 🙂
