All roads do not lead to Rome! Some branch out, meander, ascend and wait to be explored by a traveller. A group of middle-aged friends, tired of the mundane, come together to explore the roads high in the hills of North Bengal on motorcycles. In their endeavour, they are spurred on by Balaji Devanathan, co-founder of Red Panda adventures. While riding through the hills is a challenge in itself, a bigger challenge lay in first convincing themselves that they could ride a motorcycle once again after twenty years. High on the Hills is as much about their journey to achieve self-confidence as about the breath-taking locales they discover, tucked away in the Hills of Bengal.  

मेरा शहर बढ़ रहा

बहुत ही है प्यासा।
बढ़ता ही जा रहा
हर तरफ बाहें फैलाता
गला घोंटने को है उतावला,
यह शहर मेरा।

कांक्रीट की यह इमारतें
निकल पड़े हैं हर गलि,
हर मुहल्ले, हर रास्ते,
हरियाली पर कर प्रहार,
न जाने किस मुकाम की है तालाश।

खामोश बैठा सिसकियां भरता।
दो गज़ जमीन का वह टुकड़ा।
पेड़ों कि सजीवता बरकरार रखने कि चेष्टा
पत्थर की दीवारों पर विफल सर कूटता।

भूल गए हैं रास्ते परिंदे,
अट्टालिकाएं जो उनके पथ पर पाते खड़े।
हर शाम को मेरा बालकनी को मैं निराश पाता।
दूर श्रितिज पर
सूरज की रंगों की बौछार का दृश्य से वंचित रहता।
