I wish you could understand
That how much i love you
And trust me and have faith in me
Because you are all i want for life
But You are walking away…
And iam not being able to understand that what wrong have i done
Is it too much to ask? When you want someone to love you and you want to give that person same love back..
What are you so scared of? when iam ready to hold your hand and face every consequences.
All i ever want is, for us to be happily together enjoying life and growing old together
While i see outside my window
I see a storm raging on
Its so wild that its wildness
Cannot be controlled
Similar is the pain of a broken heart
Like a storm at its wildest
My heart ponders in pain
Drenched in the memories of past
But the heart is helpless
There is no use of hopeless pleas
To the stubborn heart
That went away leaving you with all the pain and guilt..
But the truth is always bitter
And more bitter is the reality and pain of a broken heart
Recollection of my childhood days
Once again reminded me of
Those happy smiles and endless
giggles on my face
Those nursery rhymes sang aloud
by me and my friends
Those evening outings after the sun set
Those vintage scooter rides
Those sour panipuri bites
Every little thing that makes me happy
Those were the happiest days of my life

Here are some pictures of my experience when i visited sirikhola last week and it seems the month of october, is the best to visit the place, you can also visit the place during the month of April-May when the weather is clear as you can enjoy the scenic beauty of the place. Sirikhola is a small village located in the district of Darjeeling and comes under the place called Rimbick.The word ‘Khola’ is a word used by the locals for river so the village is named after the river that flows through the place.The distance from Rimbick to sirikhola is 7kms..tourists prefer to trek along the routes from Rimbick to sirikhola and from sirikhola you can find trekking routes which leads to sandakphu and phalut.
Well you might be thinking How to make it up there?In order to reach sirikhola one can travel in a service taxi that goes till Rimbick from Siliguri (Darjeeling more) the timings of service taxi are quite accurate as there are less service taxi available for the place because its a 4-5 hours ride from Siliguri to Rimbick, the taxi usually leaves around 1pm from Siliguri or if you are travelling from Darjeeling than the timings are different i.e(6am-7am),(11am-2pm).
Where to stay in sirikhola?There are few lodges available opened by the locals for the sake of business, one can also seek shelter in beautiful homes of people residing there to experience their traditional way of living….you can also enjoy camping, but be careful of the wild animals…🐻🐆🐒
Things to do in Sirikhola

This is a beautiful waterfall located in shillong Meghalaya.It lies about 5kms from a place named Happy valley in shillong and is 96metres in height. Although there are many other waterfalls in the Meghalaya state,the water of this waterfall never dries unlike the other waterfalls, it is strange but true,it is often termed the ‘most beautiful’ yet the ‘most dangerous’ waterfall in shillong.
A visit to Gazoldoba was a beautiful experience. Gazoldoba is famous for different kinds of birds as it is the natural habitat for many birds. Hence, this place is also known as a birding paradise.Gazoldoba is a developing tourist and a picnic spot of the Terai and Doars region of North Bengal and the place is surrounded by baikunthapur forest which is a home for variety of wildlife.The Gazoldoba barrage is a beautiful place and one can spend leisurely time watching the scenic beauty with binoculars.There are local boatmen who offers you cheap boatrides and one can have a great time watching the beauty of barrage along with the boatride.As the place is distant from the main city it is very peaceful and calm.It is a must visit place for nature and peace lovers.
