Finally, a much needed break from the world of shredded codes and excels, a refreshing weekend spent on trekking up the dense green mountains and waterfalls, a relentless adda (chat) with old buddies and baring the soul to the nature, forgetful of the noisy city life.

Destination Matheran: A hill station in Maharasthra perched on the top of western ghats at 2600 feet above the sea level. It is 110 kms drive from Mumbai and 120 kms from pune. Except me, all the trip members were from Mumbai, so we decided Neral as the meeting point for the group. Took a train from pune in the early morning to Neral, where the rest of the gang arrived from Mumbai by a local train. Met Sharmistha, who joined the trip at the last moment after getting a tip from her friend Kali (amitava sengupta) about the plan. Incidentally, as if to prove that life comes a full circle, she turned out to be the sister of an old friend from RKM. The rest of the team, Devadyuti, Debarati and Kali were old acquaintances. Pocha and kola (nicknames) couldn’t make it at the last moment.
