@07:50Hrs
reached Malvni.... it already started raining in bits n bytes...
now was the gr8 idea which has hit swati...
"hey open the Umbrella... its raining"..
an umbrella on a monsoon trek ***
it was green & glossy all around, the water rolling down from the top along with the moss where actually getting converted to Waterfalls

@08:20Hrs
get going with the Waterfall...
it's huge & mind boggling & has
fascinated us towards itself..
we've gone against the wind.. water flowing down & slop...
it was fun to fight against the nature for a while...
but surely cld've been dangerous... 'd either of us has met any accident...
"swati is still holding her umbrella.....against wind & rain in against water flow"
& there goes the umbrella...
we cldn't 've hold our laugh...
man it was tough already we were holding each other to support cross the water flow..
we 'd a photo shoot up ther... & then got back to the route we were here to follow...

@9:00Hrs
got a tapri
'd our bfast: wada pav, bread jam, corn bhel, tea etc
& ofcourse sm snaps again

@9:20Hrs
our nxt destinatn: Bhaje Caves
shobha got exhasted in the mean time while climbing the steps to the caves...
tx to Glucose D ... "yeh jaan mein jaan daal de peete hi"
accompanied us 2 grps of small children one from chinchwad & another from nigdi & a dog...
again was a photo shoot...

@12:00Hrs
just few steps short to the final destination:
tea break
bhaji...
when we turned around we'd seen the fort through the clearing fog

now was the time when we've discovered that one among us is Komal Nath....
& to our surprise it was none other than Umakant...(now I've got his real name)
well this was what swati assumed his name to be....not sure what made her interpret that

now was the time when I felt like to trek a bit as till now 'd a feeling as if I was more on a picnic in a garden.. so I opted to set on the journey through a different means, along with me was Komal Nath through the bushes, crossing the moss, some running some time brisk walk.... we 'd climbed the fort steps..

@13:00Hrs
The destination .... awaiting for us

there I've seen a scenery of my life time

memorable incident #1:
"water flowing upside rather flying upside..."
yeah that's true though hard to believe...
lemme put in more logical manner...

it was a terribly windy day & @ a height 2k+ ft the free falling water was thrown away in the opposite direction ... i really wish I cld've been in a position to picture or vedio shoot that.

memorable incident #2:
there was a pool of water, me & tipur ran towards it & the rest were damn terrified as they were interpreting that we might jump into the pool... which surely wd 've been a stupid idea when it was simply flooded, all of them ahouted @ us to make sure that we don't ....
but to be honest i do 'd that idea in my mind once...

# I don't understand how were Shivaji maharaj aware of the water resources @ the peaks @ each fort.

memorable incident #3: Vinchu kanta
the peakmost dead end.
the thin footpath sort to the end of 2k+ft
just enough by an inch for a single person to walk down the ramp

when we were all set to the point hardly 20mts away we've found that there 3 ppl already @ the end. The footpath was can be defined as "ek taraf pahad to durri taraf khayi {2k+fts}"

but still they opted to come back even though we were half way down.
some how managing we reached the point...

The Point: watching down 2k+fts just down our feet was an awesome feeling.

we were lucky enough as the fog just cleared to get ur the rare view.

We: Me, Tipur, Ratul.. the lucky chaps ho made it ... indrajeet was standing behind just to make sure that things are alright... & ladies didn't even bothered to try.. they were tired enough
shobha & swati had got cramps & were on Glucose...

@13:45
the drill down back to pavellion
Antakshari & bhangda too accompanied us along with the photo shoot.
chilling down back under the water fall: Tipur & Shudhir

@16:30Hrs
the train back to Pune stn.

@ 17:45Hrs
reached back pune stn.
were planing to 've dinner together but swati & shobha had to leave
so rest of us just had some snacks there itself & ended our journey....

frnds my appologies if I missed out any thing as I'm writing this mermorising all the events almost after 2 yrs..
