  • Kailash-Manasarovar Yatra - A spiritual odyssey

    Winding through India, Nepal and China (Tibet), the Kailash-Manasarovar Yatra is a gritty test of will and endurance, but its rewards are manifold and intangible

    By Srila Ramanujam

    What can you expect when your body, mind and soul go searching for the “unknown” in what is truly a land far beyond known habitats? The flight to New Delhi, then a connection to Kathmandu, Nepal is usually smooth, enjoyable and, in fact, if you are lucky, it affords an awesome panoramic view of Himalayan snow-covered peaks.

    Most tour operators prepare tourists at base camp in Kathmandu and, somehow, when the briefing comes from a Nepalese or a Tibetan, you feel a sense of security, a feeling that you might be in safe hands for the rest of the two-week expedition. And, of course, no one can escape the preparations at base camp for the 14-day ordeal -- repacking all the gear into tough duffel bags and ensuring that one is stocked with gloves, snow coats, good trekking shoes, woolens, first-aid kits and so forth. But really, since the mind is all set to meet with the greatness and vastness of nature, none of these trivial things seem to matter.

  • Going for gold at Punjab’s Rural Olympics

    The small village of Kila Raipur is awash in adrenalin as athletes show off their prowess in all kinds of unusual and unorthodox sports

    By Kaushal Mathpal

    A whining crowd, a Punjabi commentator, and a list of some common and bizarre events. You guessed it, the scene is set for the one of the most uncanny Olympics in the world — The Rural Olympics.

    Senior citizens race to the finish line

    Every year the month of Valentine commences with some action-packed performances showcasing a great display of physical strength and endurance in KIla Raipur, a small village near Ludhiana in Punjab.

    The genesis of this amazing event can be traced way before independence to 1933 when philanthropist Inder Singh Grewal envisioned the notion to organize an annual meet for the local farmers to showcase their physical endurance and talent. What started as a recreational activity among the farmers of nearby villages has now travelled for almost eight decades and turned into a major international event attracting both participants and spectators from all across India and even abroad. The event this year entered its 78th year and was held from January 31 to February 2.
