Walking on the Bank of Ganga

Want to see where the Sun touches the Sea.


I love walking on the banks of the Ganges. Whenever I find myself depressed for any reason, I just visit the bank of the river Ganga, which is flowing some distance from my native house.

I sit there on the bank of Ganga for some time.  What I feel is that It is good for the mind, body, and soul. Here I feel a lot of peace.

Walking on the sand on the banks of the Ganges gives a feeling of freshness to my feet.

Whenever I visit my native place, I pay a visit to the Ganga flowing at a distance of 2 kilometers from my house.

“Leave footprints of love and kindness wherever you go.”

Once, It was a nice evening – neither too hot nor too cold. I visited there, A touch of cool breeze was making me thrilled while walking there in the evening.

The sky was filled with partly cloudy and there were scattered brown cloud spots. That was offering a beautiful view of the evening sunset.

Children were enjoying with their friends playing with water in the river Ganges, and I was walking under the sky-blue clouds.

All I need is a good dose of Vitamin Sea.

Seeing those children playing in the water, a smile spread on my face and I kept getting lost in my childhood memories.

 I was observing those children and felt delighted.  I remember those days of my childhood when we also used to come to Ganga ji and have a lot of fun with our friends.

When I was sitting alone there and observing the beautiful views,   suddenly Shambhu appeared before me. I was surprisingly staring at him and trying to identify whether he was the same Shambhu or someone else.

Yes, Shambhu is my childhood friend. Today after 30 years, suddenly I saw him again at this place. It can only be called a coincidence because if you meet an old friend after a long gap, that doubles your happiness. We were laughing to see each other and very excited.

After a long Time

The evening was pleasant, and the moment was special,

What was it then, We also made up our mind to spend some blissful moments in the Ganges water with him.

We turn off our clothes and then jumped into the Ganges for fun.

I was feeling very relaxed under the water that summer and at the same time, the memories of my childhood days were getting refreshed.

It was love at first sight, the day I met the Ganga.

Suddenly we saw a motorboat appear with the pleasant sound of thunder. The moving boat in the Ganga and the setting of the sun in the evening, that was creating a beautiful view.

We couldn’t resist ourself to take photographs. We had captured the beautiful view of the boat moving in the Ganges on our mobile and were enjoying the moments.

Really, that evening was special for me. Meeting with an old friend and spending an evening on the banks of the Ganges, really that time was precious, and the moment was memorable.

And then my eyes fell on the gol-gappa seller as he was passing by.

We called him by voice. Both of us were reminiscing about our childhood while having a Gol-Gappa.
