I was walking with my bicycle in Shoolpaneshwar wild life sanctuary and I met this two local kid who were playing on the bank of river. i requested them to join me for a walk and there they took me at waterfall after half an hour of walk together.

Being raw traveler it is hard to keep our self tip-top while traveling, so this was the perfect place to take bath as i hadn’t had since 2 days. it was must capture moment for me taking bath at this rocking place, so i requested one of the kid to take a picture of mine from my smart phone. at first chance he refuge to do so as he hadn’t use the smart phone before. then after I taught him that its a simple touch you have to make and that’s it.

I handed over my phone to him with camera switching on and went for a bath. after a while he came to me to check the photograph. there were two photograph which he took and this is the one which didn’t make my day but the whole trip.

Go For Nothing

“Just relax man…don’t force yourself to do something. This is the place to do nothing”

– Roy, My Friend

Majuli – Word’s second largest river island.

Most of the time people tries to find and see something interesting while traveling. their minds work on whats there? and whats next? somewhere in this race many time they forget to enjoy the place.

Majuli is the kind of place i am talking about. many tourist used to come and ask us about what to do in majuli, and my friend Roy used to reply them not to do anything. have some local food, seat after little bit of swimming and sleep. that’s it.
