Day 2: Borong – A Walk to Remember

When life gets too full with everyday monotony, and your heart seeks the right salve to rise above mediocrity, the splendid nothingness of Borong helps to act as the right balm.

This quaint little hill station lying snuggled in the mountains of West Sikkim has nothing much to offer other than the long, meandering roads leading you to step into the clouds. This is the best opportunity for you to get lost in the surrounding woods bordering the long roads. That was my idea of an ideal escape.

Image  Silence borne on the cool winds bringing with it a whiff of the wild flowers lying        strewn on the roadside, the distant mountains peeking at you from behind the  clouds and the cricket chirping in the still nights makes you wonder if you have  not stepped on the accelerator a bit too frequently in life.

 Borong is probably one of those places that does make one repeat with William  Henry Davies’ when he says
“What is this life if full of care,

                                       We have no time to stand and stare?”

 In Borong apply all your brakes and surrender to the brilliance of doing nothing.
