I have been in love with the Himalayas ever since i was a small kid. Not many people know that i stayed for some 5 to 6 years in my village before i moved to Mumbai for my studies. I always yearned to come to my hometown during those 2 months of School Holidays. Thousands of stories have been woven around the mighty Himalayas, every Mountain here has some god and a temple, which makes them even more mystical, be it the story of river Ganga coming from Lord Shiva’s Hair, or be it the story of Lord Rama meditating , or Pandavas traveling to various places in Uttarakhand searching for the way to heaven. I have compiled some of these facts and myths and prepared an Infograph, which i intend to do on a regular basis. Here’s the first one.
I know, i haven’t uploaded more of these in a long time. I am planning to start them again starting from May 2017 .
I am also incorporating some interesting stories about how birds are named by locals in Garhwal Himalayas.
Do keep out a look out on the blog for more of these.
