Motor Cycle Diaries



A childhood story about an unplanned journey had inspired me so much and I have tested it so many times to success that now it appears to me a common experience but for those who are in habit of planning their trips, here is an opportunity of adventure. All you have to do is carry a traveling gear and preferably your own mode of transport and the best if you have a bike. For bikers it is advisable to have an extra tube, tool kit, wind shitter Gloves, Proper rear view mirror, Brake shoes tested and other things according to the road conditions. Don’t carry any eatables as eating out on a roadside dhaba is a real treat.

It was in one of these unplanned excursions that I went out on a 100km bike trip with moli bhai. Normally on a rainy day it is expected to go out on a car but I chose against it. Jharkhand can boast of so many waterfalls and especially Ranchi (once a summer capital of Bihar) has 4 well known waterfall. In spite of this I did go for a waterfall but just a bike trip on the highway. I had done this many times alone and to have moli as a pinion was really great. It was raining all throughout the journey and maybe it was the most ideal condition for biking .The valley looked more beautiful and the volumes of fresh oxygen was refreshing . Best part was stopping at various places and feeling the beauty of the place. There were many beautiful places on the way and few kilometers from the highway. One of these was Rukka Dam built on the Subarnrekha River. We sat on the banks of the river and the beauty around was mesmerizing. I remember Moli saying many times that he needed a SLR to capture the beauty .We stopped twice on the roadside dhaba and will never forget the taste of the tea that was served there .. I remember saying to him “ Yaar moli bhai poora bhingne ke baad hi chai ka maja hai , jindigi hai be”

    I felt it with you. Beauty as I repeatedly say – can’t be contained .. it’s in the moment. We lived it, I will remember.
