There was a day when I rode out unprepared a week from this day. I rode and rode and rode till my front wheel started making a weird noise after which I returned home from the Bengal Jharkhand Border.
It was the first time I had tasted freedom. Travelling solo is different. It not travel any more. Its meditation.
So after I left job, I decided that I will ride to Delhi from Kolkata.
As it would happen I would start late at around 1130. Rode the rest of the day till I crossed into Jharkhand.
Frankly I was a bit scared to stop any where in between but those are the initial jitters that are there for a day. By the time I was in Jharkhand, I stopped to enjoy the aesthetics once. The NH 2 is good and the ride was excellent. Here are some of the pictures that will take you in the 5 days small trip from Kolkata to Delhi.
The Sunset in the dry winter evening was momentary yet titanic in terms of self realisation
Looking back at Dusty, it was time to ride on and find a hotel or ride on till varanasi
Finally managed a nights stay in Ashoka Hotel
Early next morning. The sun is yet to show
Was on road by 6.30. :)
Light baser and Dusty :)

Reached Sanjay Motel. Chasing the MTV roadies X 2 crew
From the banks of Ganges
Resting in peace
Reminded me of a girl I love
Another day in the banks
Baldness is my boldness
The song of light and hymes
The streets of Varanasi in early morning
The Boatman and the birds
In search of emptiness
The place where the budda uttered his first words
Golden or light....enlightened?
Sunshine in my shoulder makes me happy
|Jewels of Ganges|
|The lone lamp|
|The play of life and light|
|I want that bike...I want it|

|Selfie without an observer|
