When you bunk a day with your best mate, then that day surely becomes a memorable day. On June 29,2017 all of the sudden I decided to visit “Little Tibet” in Delhi, famously known as “Majnu kaTilla”.

What’s special there?

  • – A different culture to experience.
  • – Shopping
  • – Tibetan Food.
  • – Photographic elements.
  • – Peace at monastery.

How to reach?

Metro is the best mode of transportation to reach here. Get down at Vidhan Sabha metro station then take rickshaw or e-rickshaw for Rs.20 for two people till the foot over bridge connecting to Tibet monastery.

I had only one hour to do quick ‘snap and roam’.So, I entered from the main monastery gate , though thought of capturing a lot of things but I did not as sometimes you just need to enjoy atmosphere.

There ,I tried “Lhaphing” urf cold noodles .Actually available at many small stalls and shops there.

It is a very yummy Tibetan street food. Available in two varieties that is dry or soup dishes of it. The price varies from Rs.20 to Rs.30.

The scent snake had started attacking my nostrils hard; simultaneously was activating my taste buds too. I headed to Tee-Dee, favourite spot since 2011.

Ordered fruit beer, tingmo (Tibetan bread) and Tee-Dee special non-veg beef choupsey. Well, at the end it was the time to score food. Tingmo is a round traditional bread was soft and was moist as apt hence 9/10.This time the choupsey was low on quality and taste hence I would give 6/10.The total bill was of Rs.270.

While crossing lanes and observing things I landed up in a garden full of tibetan prayer flags.It was all colourful. You all must have guessed now, that I took quite many pictures there.

Love of a mother

At that time, she hardly had strength to clutch anything like rest of us. Her eyes were adorned with tears. She had an image of flying wings in her eyes. Every time she was hearing the noise of an aero plane in the sky, she was hurriedly moving out to the balcony.

She felt a strange unwinding of blood knots. Finally, her hand slipped and she lost her motherly touch.

uhh.jpg

It was a moment where she had frozen. She was completely sad still she managed to smile to the face which she will be seeing after several months or may be after a year. She barely could take a step forward with her trembling legs. She kept on staring towards sky. In her illogical world, colours of fin and the turning of aircraft towards south denote that particular flying ship, in which her daughter is flying.

Pic- clicked by my mum ( she had thought this is the plane in which her daughter went)

Now, being in balcony is something she gives her half of the time.And people say they failed to find true love. Who will care as much as a mother, who will love you altruistically as mother? Who will wait for you like a mother ?

A wonderful soul, who believes in sacrificing her happiness to make an unscathed way for her child, that’s a mother.
