May 29, 5:30am – 10am,
Ootacamund, Tamil Nadu
fresh cold of breeze, leaving me with goosebumps.
as we drove along the tiny lanes of ootacamund to reach the beautiful destination – lovedale school.
at 7am, we started a run, that will be etched in my thoughts, for the beautiful memories i made.
15kms covering sheer beauty,
for nature is par above us.
the flowers, the trail, the trees, the wet grass, the street dogs that looked well kept, the hills, the tiny roads.
the continuous breeze, the eucalyptus smell, the wet mud, the clouds.
the view of tiny colourful houses presented like a step cultivation.
the fellow runners – kids, loners, lovers, friends, couples, families.
there was beauty in every little thing.
and, most importantly, myself, my thoughts about a lot of new things. learning and discovering myself, for this was really “my time”.
grateful for the magical experience, for i only felt ecstatic and blissful throughout this journey.
thank you Go Heritage Run – Ooty team, it’s volunteers and my friends – Karthik Natarajan, Ashwanth Kumar and everyone else (you all know who you are), who made this possible for me.
