Beat the Heat

What would be more apt than taking a dip in the cold icy rivulet to “ Beat the Heat”? Yes, that was exactly what my daughter and I did last Sunday! Yup! Spent the day by the rivulet with the summer sun pouring above us.

We got up late like any other Sundays, when we used to get a little more sleep time than the week days.  The sun had already gained its momentum way ahead of the time and had spell its sway all over our places. We did our morning ablutions and treated ourselves fruit salad, which I made.

Stuffed with some bare neccesities like suncreeen, towel, soap and a towel, we rode on my rickety scooty along the long and already choking traffic of Dharamsala.

Stranded in the long traffic at this time of noon, on top of that a scorching heat above us even made the longing for a cool dive in the rivulet desperate. Cars big like trucks from the plains made their ways towards the tiny roads leading towards Mcleod and Naddi just to escape the heat waves of the plain. I felt pity to see them stuck in the traffic and having to spend half of their day meant to be spent by the mountain, on the tarred  road. Ops!

In such scenario, it would be best to carry a bike. Bikers could easily squeeze themselves in between the narrow gaps, which was a kind of a blessing. Anyways, somehow we had finally made our way to the famous Khanyara rivulet losing our way in between.

It was a great relief just to see the rivulet flowing with a loud commotion. The mere sight and the sound dissolved all the trouble and the inconveniences we had been through over the last few hours. From the roadside where we parked our scooty, we could see each and every space around the rivulet occupied by a flock of people of all nations and generations. After sending our eyes through the top to the bottom, luckily we spotted a small space which remained unoccupied. Without wasting a single minute, we moved down and captured that small area.

First thing, we did was to clean the area which was littered with bottles, wrappers, leftover food, poops etc. Then we dipped ourselves little by little till we could fully feel the ectasy of being in cold water. The struggle we went through was worth because the cold water cooled us both physically and mentally. I could see the fun and the laughter among those who had come there. Some were washing clothes; some were enjoying their mid day meal; some were swimming; some were taking sun bath and others were lost in the beauty of that natural beauty. A little lively village in itself!

Nature can be very helpful as well as wrathful. Sometimes it brings solace and sometimes it brings havoc. We have floods in one part of our country and droughts in others. We are very fortunate to have such abundance of water here when we think of all those places where a single pond is considered a reservoir. As such we have to know this fact and act accordingly.
