A lot of people have asked me about when & how the “Che Influence” came to my life and I haven’t been to tell them about this…and specially my dear friend Adit Sharda who has always been persistent with this question but I kept forgetting and the main reason has been “Beer”…he has always asked me this before a BBB Session and I have always got drunk and forgotten to tell him…but this time I have decided to pen down my thoughts once & for all…
I have been travelling a lot for the last 2 months and have been on an eating-out spree for quite long now. Bandita and Abhay are chilling in Australia so I am forced to eat out even in Kuwait now! But I took matters in my own hands in the weekend and decided to get back to the kitchen. I decided to make a chicken dish, used the ingredients which were at home and went as per whatever method which came to my mind. I was pleasantly surprised at the end result and it was much better than the world famous “Cream Chicken” served at “Chawla” chain of restaurants which I recently had in Amritsar! The curry was velvety, the flavour mellow and yet adequately spiced loaded with flavours of garlic. Do give this a shot folks and I am sure you are gonna love this one too.
Today was the big day! It was my 36th Birthday and it was the first time in my 8 years of Motorcycling that I was going to celebrate it during a ride and on the road! And what better to celebrate it with my comrades and in the beautiful Lahaul Spiti circuit! The original plan for the day was Kaza – Langza – Komic – Hikkim – Kaza but we added the Key & Kibber circuit as well to make things even better!
This was going to be a real fun day for us! We were to visit the Dhankar Monastery first, then the Pin Valley before reaching Kaza where we had planned to spend 2 chilled out days.
The day started on a very lazy note as for a change we were in no hurry! The landslide was expected to be cleared by the BRO only by 10 AM so we took it very easy. We had 2 rounds of tea while watching the village waking up from our vantage point.
Another day, another early start but it was for a different reason today. I wanted to witness the magic of sunrise today! I woke up George, we both freshened up and went to the balcony to enjoy the ethereal scene waiting for us!
