Tiring as we climbed Tanmarg, we just went on…over zig-zag roads, Towards Gulmarg. The name fascinated me—what a beautiful name it is; Translating it as simply ‘meadow of flowers’, placed in the Himalayas.

Somewhere on the way to Leh, towards North, I reached a spot that showcased beautiful cotton-like clouds in the azure sky, under a plain grassland, stitched with long and curved tire tracks that route from one peak to another… Sometimes it is only Sky and Earth… so simple.
