Hello guys!A happy new year and welcome to my first blog post of 2k18 ever.
Welcome to part 2 of series 1 of the One Woman Adventure series.Hanuwantiya, the place where the Jal Mahotsav carnival was being held was a four-hour drive from Indore.Hanuwantiya is an area located in the small town of Mundi in Madhya Pradesh.As soon as I entered the MP Tourist Complex resort, Hanuwantiya I was given celebrity level reception.
I was escorted to my tent in an open car.Even though I am not that young, the officials were extremely surprised that a girl of my age could come all alone as they were asking me several times if anyone else was staying with me.I think they mistook me like everyone else does for a 16 or 17-year-old(I wish I was that age, sigh) due to the fact that I was wearing a western outfit.People never get my age right, they overestimate my age when I wear Indian outfits and underestimate it when I wear western outfits which have proven to a problematic experience for me in several places.
I felt like I was in a dream when I entered the tent.Check out the pictures and the tour and you will know why:
I thought I should get some sleep but I was tempted to go on the adventure activities and the water sports after lunch.Enjoy the picture spam-:
I napped for about two hours after all these adventures, went for dinner, went back to my tent to return the zillion phone calls from my parents, spoke to them for more than an hour, checked and uploaded all my activities for the day on social media.These days if you don’t do that, it means it never happened.I really appreciate those people who don’t feel the need to post everything they did on social media. If you are one of them give yourself a pat on the back as you ought to be proud of the level of self-control you have!
There was a live concert by some band(whose name I still don’t know and never bothered finding out either) at 10pm.I know I deserve a few punches and kicks but I was too engrossed in having fun.There were only two middle-aged couples and one couple in their thirties other than me and one of the main event organizers(who was also middle-aged).I missed my peers during this performance.They performed all the latest Bollywood songs and I was thinking how much more fun it would have been if my friends were with me considering the amount of noise we would have made and we would have danced until we dropped.
Then the couples started dancing and I sat in my seat clueless when the anchor asked me to join.I told her I didn’t have a dance partner and she offered to be my dance partner.They performed old and new Bollywood tunes which we all grooved to.
After the performance, I decided to enjoy the night breeze by the river Narmada.Madhya Pradesh has one of the most amazing weathers.Their winters are pleasant and enjoyable even at night, unlike the harsh Delhi winter where I feel like I have ice instead of bones in my body.I spent more than an hour trying to capture a good picture of these beautiful lights at night but failed miserably as these were the best shots I could manage.I don’t own a phone that has renowned camera quality.I guess some moments are better enjoyed in real life.
I am not sure what I did that night.Nope, I swear I didn’t drink anything the place blew me of my senses.I vividly remember texting some of my friends for several hours at night as I was unable to communicate with them through the day.I don’t think they stayed up all night waiting for my response, it is just that during vacations no one ever sleeps early.Other than that I don’t remember what else I did but all I know is that I didn’t sleep as I was living a dream in real life.Unlike other dreams, this dream would have faded if I had slept.
