Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of a mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature’s darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature’s sources never fail………John Muir

“The gap between your personal ambition generated by seeing others achieving what you dreamt of and what you actually achieved or being able to achieve gives you the throttle to push yourself further. And may be that’s what life is meant to be … just walk”……..Anirban Deb

“Faced with situation where unknown calls you with it’s beauty that you can embrace only after traversing a difficult terrain and known calls you to return to your comfort zone, it’s you who has to decide the next move with all accountability to face the consequences and who knows, unknown may become your new comfort zone”……Anirban Deb

“The best thing about mountains is it’s nature of becoming a leveler. It gives a vision to un-see the differences of heights, status, positions, designations, gender etc since from a great height, such mere differences are just not a difference at all. On the contrary mountain gives a vision to see what is more important like respect, equality, brotherhood, bonding and above all togetherness that can unite all and do away with the so called differences… If asking whether anyone inside the toilet is gross in our daily life, it’s normal in the mountain, if talking about my inability or difficulty in doing something is a matter of shame in our routine life, telling the same and asking for help or support is encouraged in the mountains, if boasting about not taking this and that food is called superiority in some occasions, mountain makes all jump over whatever food available and relish that to the core, and such examples are plenty…. In simple words, mountain makes us what we truly are, what we truly meant to be, what we truly love to be and not what we unsuccessfully try to be”…Anirban Deb
