On This One Trip To Pune, I Saw alt-J Live

Music is one of those things I cannot imagine my life without. I know I’m not alone in saying or believing in that. Travelling for music was, however, a significant point on my mental to-do list. I checked it off this month when I went to Pune to attend VH1 Supersonic. It was legendary, but there is one specific highlight that I just cannot avoid making a fuss about. I saw alt-J. I love alt-J. Here is how all of it felt.

On This One Trip To Athirappilly, Google Maps Wanted Us To Drive Off A Cliff

It is easier to travel in the age of the internet. Especially if you look at how travelling used to be before the age of live translation, navigation and what not. It is incredibly disappointing then when technology fails you in the world where we depend on it for most of our days. Google Maps did just that for a minute or two back in Kerala last September. It wanted us to drive off a cliff. It wasn’t life-threatening, it was oddly hilarious. Yet, it served as a nice reality check.

On This One Trip To McLeodganj, We Had Some Laafi

On This One Trip To Mumbai, I Saw The Sea For The First Time

I didn’t travel much as a child. So, there are a lot of firsts I’ve experienced in the last half-decade or so. One of them is looking at the sea for the first time. This was during my trip to Mumbai last summer. It’s funny how I also went to Mumbai in 2015 but never got a chance to look at the sea. How does one manage to do that anyway? Nevertheless, this is the story of my first gaze at the infinite.

On This One Trip To Triund, We Got Stuck Between A Rock And A Chain Of People

On my 2015 trip to McLeodganj and Shimla, we also had the Triund trek in our itinerary. While Triund is a pretty easy trek otherwise, we had a particular moment where we got stuck because of a few others above us. Here’s what happened, as best as I remember it.

On This One Trip To Agra, Our Bus Left Us Stranded In The Middle Of The Night

I was travelling to Agra back in 2015. It was quite literally my first journey without any authoritative figure. Unfortunately or fortunately for us, it started with a major setback; our bus left us stranded in the middle of Yamuna Expressway in the middle of the night.
