Myths in the Mist

There are quite a few reasons why my India is incredible. These are a few reasons why I am still in love with her. Presenting a few shots clicked at Bhimtaal, by an extremely talented colleague.

Bhimtaal, 22 km from Nainitaal, is the largest of the area’s lakes. The lake has mythical connections — it is named after the legendary hero Bhim, one of the five Pandava brothers, of the Hindu epic, the Mahabharat. It is believed that Bhim (who was renowned for his strength) dug this lake out of the earth to quench the thirst of his four brothers and their wife, Draupadi.

I wonder if their thirst was ever quenched. I took off to the hills the night I left my job. I was probably trying to quench a thirst within me. I don’t know. Came back to madness. Went back to the hills once again, in search of my “recovery button”. I returned satiated with mountain air and with the realisation that I have no such button. That was a myth. And my thirst? Probably the mist should quench it.

My sincere thanks to for the information about Bhimtaal.
My sincere thanks to Ankur Agarwal for the lovely snapshots.

Update: I am back after a tiny break.
