In Kashmir: A Trip To Sonmarg

Hello to the beautiful world I’ve been missing from days,

I know I haven’t written in long but my summer vacation in Kashmir has not been all peace and calm. It wasn’t chaotic either, but in Kashmir, I have no proper schedule or routine so it’s always up and down with me getting no time to write.

Anyways, here I am, and I want to tell everyone about my trip to the mountains. Although I uploaded a few pics on Instagram(username:me_a_poet) weeks ago, I just didn’t have time to write about it.

We-me, my father, sister and brother joined our uncle’s and aunt’s families for a trip to Sonmarg- a mountain area away from Srinagar. Although I don’t really enjoy family road trips, but this trip was special because of the beautiful scenery all along the way.


We had lunch on a hill top and I was able to get some pretty good pictures there. The weather was nice, the sun kept coming and going but it was great, feeling that wind hit your face.

After we had lunch, we drove down the hill and went biking. It was the four wheeler bike and I got on it, and I drove like a turtle! But, I didn’t get hurt which is a plus point. Later, my cousins and my siblings went horse riding. I didn’t go because one look at those horses and I knew they were weak. I didn’t want to burden them with my weight. I became the heroine for those black beauties, but the rest of my family wasn’t, so maybe it wasn’t completely a win win situation. My ┬ádad rode a horse- he rid well but when it was time to get off, he took his sweet time getting off the saddle. ┬áBut, some times too much time taken at a task can end in a mess so my dad fell. It wasn’t a really bad fall, he just didn’t know how to get off .

Even though I didn’t go horse riding or anything, I was exhausted- I think it was because of sitting in the car for too long, but it was fun! Visiting those mountains again, after such a long time; it was good.

Struggling to get there!

I haven’t really worked that hard for pretty much anything in my life. I barely put any effort in school work but when I give it my all, I don’t get the results I wished for.

I am a really lazy person, meaning putting effort in even doing one question of my Maths homework takes a lot of willpower and sometimes I just easily give up, like right now, I am supposed to complete my study notes for English but I am nowhere near finishing, I never reach the end of any work and I believe it’s because I don’t struggle to get there. I believe in this saying “You struggle to reach the end” and I sadly don’t which makes me feel guilty.

When you struggle with something, and still keep going on, you achieve something, but when you don’t struggle with something, don’t put in the effort, you just end up with nothing!

However, when you reach a point in putting all that effort, where you aren’t getting the results you’re desperately hoping for, then that thing’s just not meant for you. You can’t just give up and drop all your hard work there and then, but give it your best and trust me, you’ll feel good that at least you tried.

I am trying to convince myself with that as I study for Chemistry, Biology or Physics but I still manage to feel low in the dumps even when my siblings try convincing me that Science isn’t just my thing. Hopefully, I’ll achieve something good with this struggle, and surprisingly I do struggle with Science! It’s just so hard!!
