Sites and Sounds of Tapovan Village, Rishikesh
India is not all noise and bustle. There are beautiful sounds and sights of Nature as well!
Uploaded on Jan 9, 2010
While walking up the mountain past the village, I was accompanied by rapids, and the beautiful music of the water was with me all the time. Other than the occasional bird-call, that was the only sound I heard most of the time. The sound of the water became progressively louder the higher up I walked, until it was the only thing I heard. And if I ventured off the main path for awhile, I was greeted with almost an eerie silence once the water sounds could no longer be heard.Make sure you watch until the end and see the lady bathing her buffalo!
Much love light and JOY

Rishikesh-HERE I COME!!
Flying tomorrow evening and will arrive on Wednesday around lunch time (following a 5-7 hour taxi ride from Delhi). Hopefully on Thursday, during my morning walk with my friend M, who will be in India for the first time (!), I will sit down at some point to drink Chai, perhaps at the Buddha Cafe, and enjoy the above scene onces again. 🙂 I look forward to seeing all my wonderful friends in Rishikesh who I have sorely missed over the past year and 8 months…the longest I’ve been away from India in a very long time.
Have been fighting a serious sinus infection the past 2 weeks, including antibiotics the last few days (a rare occurrence for me) and thankfully my fever has finally abated. Won’t be an easy trip but it will be wonderful to be back…even if I have to continue resting up for another few days once I get there.
Hope to be posting almost daily when I get back to “myself”, and of course, hope you will enjoy and love hearing your comments.
