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.
On 27th and 28th of April Hiking club organized two days hike to Bandipur. There were a lot
of applicants willing to go for hiking. Among all 16 of us were selected. The journey started at 7 in the morning when everyone gathered in the college.
Saturday 20th of April,2019, all the enthusiastic Deerwalkers of Squad B were ready for another episode of Deerclean. Deerclean is a community service campaign which is organized by Deerwalk Services with the major objective of maintaining a clean and healthy environment in educational sectors.
The plan was set, and the route was decided. The office van moved from Deerwalk premises at exactly 7 AM. Half of the hikers arrived at DWS premises and the rest were to be picked up on the way to Taudaha. The plan was to hike from Taudaha to Champadevi via Bosan. 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.
On 1st March, DWIT Hiking Club had organized one day hike to Sisneri, a beautiful destination 37km south from DWIT. Seventeen hikers were selected and were asked to reach college at 6:15 am and by 7 am we were all set and the journey for Sisneri began.
The excitement of my weekend schedule, which would include two-day hike to Kakani, kept me from going to bed peacefully on Friday night. We all gathered around Deerwalk at 8:30 am, where we loaded all the necessary supplies in the vehicle and got ready to move out.
Our planned hiking route was from Gurje Bhanjyang to Kakani for the first day. We set off from Deerwalk in the office vehicle at 9 am. On our way, we stopped by a place to have a little breakfast before the hike.
After the announcement of two days hike everyone got excited. Finally, On March 8th (Friday) our coordinator Dibyamshu set the pickup points and the destination was chosen to be Markhu as it was the first experience for most of the 15-member squad.
As we entered through the gates of Deerwalk Complex, everyone seemed excited, for it was not just another day in Deerwalk. It was indeed one of the most awaited days for all Deerwalkers. After all, it was the time to show off two months of hard work- two months of juggling between work deadlines and practice, two months of dancing in the courtyard, singing in the hall, and that was all for Deerfest 2019.
