Prologue to the Tale – Delhi to Leh: 100 Rupay Jeb Main


I don’t know what it really takes to ignite one’s mind, body & soul.
 What it takes to burn oneself to appear bright and stand tall.
 What makes one courageous enough to cross all self-imposed boundaries.
To believe in what you always believed was impossible.
To see the unseen. To see the extreme
“its all in your mind” said a grave voice & I believed it almost as instantly as hay catches fire.
The fire had settled within keeping me warm.
 It was a challenge, keeping the fire on, keeping oneself warm.
The chances of burning were much more than the chances of warming.
 But yet I decided to follow the idea which was yet very charming
And what I got was manifolds my expectations.
Way beyond my imagination.
So now I tell you the story untold…………………………………

    just a suggestion for emphasis and avoiding repetition (and feel free to use if should) -

    The fire had settled within keeping me warm,
    Though it was a challenge to keep it on,
    The chances of burning were (much) more than the chances of warming,
    Yet I decided to follow the idea because there was something very charming,
    And what I got were manifolds of my expectations,
    Way beyond thought, way beyond imagination!
