I woke up with a groggy start today after a rather dramatic day yesterday and my thoughts went back to Sikkim. I was there for just a few days, staying at the Club Mahindra’s Royal Demazong property near Gangtok and my only crib was I just didnt have enough of it. Being on the road took most of the time and I would have , given an option just preferred to stare at the mountains from the balcony all day. At 5.30 am, when the mountains were still drenched in rain, the whistling thrush used to greet me with a song . I woke up with a sore throat and a heavy sinus, but couldnt resist standing in the balcony, losing myself in the mountains

    City throats,
    pothole sinuses,
    hot water bottles,
    and sleep.

    all you need
    is a whistling thrush
    to power your
    throat response;
    undulating mountains,
    deep misty valleys,
    earthy rain
    and the cleanest
    pine air
    urging a stuffy sinus
    to give up.

    A deep breath
    a cup
    of adrak clovy tea,
    and a namaskar
    to the morning sun
    over the mountains….

    Looking forward to more Sikkim pictures !
