Previous Day 9 - Manali to Pinjore
Well, there is nothing much to write about on the last day. We had almost the half day in hand since our flight was around 3.30 pm from Chandigarh Airport. So we indulged ourselves in roaming around the Pinjore Gardens and explore it in day time. The Garden was used by the Moghul Emperors as a leisurely place to spend the evenings in summer. The garden was beautifully decorated with loads and loads of flower beds. The place was covered by the fortified walls – Moghul style – just like a fort. The area of the garden was really enormous. The roads were beautifully shaded by the Palm trees and were places to sit beside the roads, under the cool shadow of the trees.
We checked out by 12.30, had our lunch and arranged for a cab through the hotel reception. The cab came on time and we were on our way to the Airport by 1 Pm.
We reached Delhi from where we caught a connecting flight to Kolkata, where we landed at around 8 pm.
We reached our home but left our heart at the beautiful hills, besides the shores of Beas and the abode of the Hadimba deity. Passing by the concrete jungles and electric-lit roads and houses, it seemed that once being in dreamland, it is difficult to get out of the trance. We promised ourselves that we would come back to the heaven again, as long as there is a breath left in us. Home is where the heart is.
Dreams come true to those who dream.Pictures -
