A forest fire ascends a segment of the Kharghar Hills, a rather common sight during the winter season.
‘Why exactly one would do is?’ is something I still haven’t found a concrete answer to. I did get a few answers along the years. But to honest, the answers do not do justice to the amount of damage such incidents have caused. But ironically, the real damage has never been to the hills neither to its real residents. It has and always will be to those guests who came down to the valley looking for shelter and sustenance, eventually forgetting the gift of life they had been receiving all along.

Chaos, amidst the cold silence
A feeling of fullness, all within none
Thrill, that would very much kill
Retracing the steps that were once feared for being the unknown
Taking that leap of faith with the mirage of a goal in your head, but never in your heart
And finally, embracing something from where it all started from – the darkness
An evening, well spent…
The sunset into the Arabian Sea. As seen from the dry grasslands of Parsik Hills.
The Haji Malang Range as seen while passing from the Siddhi Karole village near Taloja during afternoon.
The Kharghar township as seen from the top of the Pandav Khada waterfalls.
Patched afternoon clouds at Kharghar Hills.
The sunset behind the mountains at Kharghar and the light gets diffused into the clouds above. The weather has been tricky for the past few days with unexpected showers and intense heat and humidity
Nature plays in strange ways. Yesterday it was so bright and sunny that I believed it wouldn’t rain anymore this year. And today, i woke up to a bed of dark and intense clouds in the sky followed by rain throughout the day. I saw these same hills glitter in green due to the sunlight a day before and today I see a mist covered peak. Truly fascinated! Nature at it’s best and so loving it 😀
The rain gods yet again failed in showering down today and Kharghar and the hills yet again witnessed a bright sunset today
It was quiet a few days since I visited my second home. Working in front of the screen had taken the best of me and I never really managed to venture out since the start of the month. I was really disappointing for the fact that it’s August and there is no sign of rain around. Anyways, i made my way up the hill, believing that I would eventually end up at the stream. It was a Sunday and I hate being in these area on a Sundays only because the place is too crowded and people tend to piss me off by littering around and making noise in a place I regard holy. With all these in mind, I made the climb. I eventually reached a spot where I could see the lone waterfall in the distance and at the same time, the sun too was setting behind the hills. I wasted no time and took a shot. It was fun to watch the virgin grass wave in the wind and the pure green color it was emitting. Back home as I was loading all the pictures, I saw this one and after developing it, I was happy. Though people were screwing up nature, nature still smiles back in its beauty. But how long will it do so is just a matter of time
