The Journey


The helmet visor glitters as the first rays of sun

fall from the far right of the horizon.

Golden light shines through a pair of brown eyes.

Wind howls through the ears,

and the only other sound is that of a 500 cc engine

propelling a bike towards the Sun.

I am riding on a road

that runs through the heart of a desert.

The sunlight deceives my eyes

and I see gold everywhere.

As I ride through the desert,

into the golden sunrise,

I’m reminded of the beautiful past.

A past that has brought me closer to my dreams

and made me what I am today.

It’s taken me ¬†years to get here,

And it was never about the destination.

All that mattered,


The Journey ! 

A ride to Paradise

This one is from my road trip to Ladakh in 2012.


The great Himalayan Bike Expedition

Ive returned from the Bike expedition that we started on 29th of June, 2012.

Here’s the link to all the photographs :

The Leh Team

9 brave bikers embark on a quest to ride some of the most challenging passes of the Himalayan range.

Its a dream for every biker to ride “The Highest motorable road in the world” , the ” Khardung La “, and these 9 bikers will be living their dream June 29-July 18.

In case you’ve not noticed, the person on the top right corner (in the below picture) is your very own “Active Idler”. I would be posting live updates to the blog throughout our adventurous journey and you can follow them by just clicking the “stay connected” button on the right hand side of the blog.
