With the cloudy environment and the heavy rainfall from the early morning it seemed the hike wouldn’t be made out but with the courage and determination it was explored with beautiful moments.
At 6:30 am sharp, my alarm went off and I was like – ‘ Why should I wake up so early, that too on a weekend to clean some school? ‘. Who knew later it would turn out to be such a heartwarming event.

This was my very first 2 days hiking since joining Deerwalk and I was blessed with this opportunity to coordinate my colleagues over the 2 day period. Sending out participation email, selecting the hikers and managing transportation over the previous 3 days period had already provoked a certain sense of responsibility as well as excitement in me.

It was very interesting hiking because of the company.
A day long tour was all we needed to re-energize all of us. So, we planned a night out on 30th March, 2019 at Heaven Hill Resort, Lapsiphedi. It was only an hour long away from hustle and bustle of city. All of us gathered at school at 3:30 PM.
It was December 2013 when I had my first 10 day Vipassana experience. It was truly awesome and helped me realize how suffered I was and how much pain my body had stored. Since then, I was into a whole day long meditation. So the email to fill up the form for one day Vipassana with Rudra dai really excited me. I filled up the form on my own will and excitement. I went to bed early that night so that i could reach on time the next day. The next day I woke up early in the morning and reached the office premises by 7:05. I met Nitish dai, Netra dai, Sanjay dai,Raksha didi, Shikshya didi, Pramod dai and many other participants. We had some good breakfast in 109 degrees restaurant which included fruits and tea.
