    Devkeyara, April 2017. Immense gratitude to all you wonderfully supportive and uplifting folks, spiritually, emotionally, mentally and even physically – Thank You Priyanka Pai Ila Rau Arati Gupta Pawan Kumar, Neeta Moudgil, Preeti Khandelwal, Shreya Shenoy and team HPMA (Surendarji, Rameshji and all the boys) http://www.himalyanhikers.in Kuldeep Rawat
    ” A rushing stream of water flows around the obstacles that stand in its way. It doesn’t’ stop to dwell on the injuries sustained by a projecting rock or submerged log. It keeps moving toward its goal, encountering each difficulty as it appears, responding actively, then moving along downstream. The stream has no imagination to create unchanging stories of its existence. It washes away its own wounds in its present purposefulness. The water bears no scars.”
    ~ David Reynolds, Water Bears no Scars
