The solitude trip to Malnad – Inner voice that speaks

The modern day routine at workplace is like a never ending treadmill exercise. You run incessantly sweating out the calories trying to bring out the “productivity” and “creativity” in you. Often times you feel exhausted and lost in routine and start thinking in the mind whether to rest or run. The workplace pressure is as same as treadmill run and we need to take those small breaks feel revived. It’s good to once in an hour take a break for 10 minutes or go for a walk during the lunch break in working hours. All these will give you space to reflect on the work you did earlier and relax your mind for the next task.

Solitude is a nice state of mind that gives one the required pace of thinking and energy boost to revive whole body. If you are a person looking for creative energy that stimulates in your mind then you must try take a break and visit nature for a holiday. The city life could have exasperated you with workload and traffic hassles. The quietness in nature is a rejuvenating force that makes you all new and ready for the challenges. It’s a whole new level of awakening your creative thinking and make you more productive person. All of us have that inner voice which needs to be heard and cared. When you are in solitude and amidst the nature it can work wonders within you to achieve great elevation of human thinking capabilities.

Recently I got a chance to escape from the city madness and settle briefly in a coffee estate cottage by Travel Malnad. Though I travelled with my family I chose to stay back at the cottage while they went for sightseeing. My intentions were clear, not that I don’t wanted to give time to family but during this trip I wanted to converse with the nature. That was achieved only when I was alone with nature around me. It was a mind-blowing experience that I had during the stretch of my stay in the Nature. A special thanks to TravelMalnad team for meticulously arranging my trip as per the customization requested.

The benefit of solitude during a trip is, you get ample time for introspection, course correction and creative thinking. I was overwhelmed by the enchanting blessings of nature on me during this trip. Added to this the activities conducted by the owners and the trekking we did nearby made it more beautiful.

We are planning for a similar trip with Travel Malnad very soon and we recommend all those who love nature to visit and start planning your meaningful getaway to nature.

Malnadu in Karnataka – From my memory lane

It is always a nostalgic feeling when I drive through the woods and plantations of Malnad region. As young boys and girls we were running carefree and in complete sync with the nature. There was no fear at all to enter a forest, play with the plants and trees and return with memorable gifts of nature. The fruits and flowers that we brought home were preserved for months considering them most valuable, which is now replaced by materialism and work life. Malnad is a unique destination for those who want to live in harmony with nature. The more you spend time in Malenadu the better person you will become in the lap of Mother Nature.

Childhood in Malnad;

In our childhood days we used to cycle between places which are now popular as “sightseeing places”. There was no traffic and no worries, we were young and energetic and had covered miles together exploring places from morning till evening. Streams, waterfalls, mountains we scaled have been etched in my memory lane. The birds, monkeys, deers, sometimes bison we had encountered all seem to be extinct. Squirrels and sparrows are a rare sight and the camera lens searches for it today. Why human beings drifted away from nature? I always ask this question myself, sit and introspect and one answer I find is the ‘rat race’ and ‘prosperity’ we seek in city life is one of the reasons.

While I was doing my master degree I used to visit my hometown in Malnad region where I grew up as a child. The love I received from people there made me feel that ‘home coming’ experience. Your roots are always strongest and stay deep in your hearts. Wherever in the world you might be travelling or working, the feeling of your ‘hometown’ is like the love of your mother. It’s irreplaceable and always beautiful.

As a tourism hub;

Over the years malnadu region has evolved from a hub of agriculture to a famous holiday destination in Karnataka. The places here are always green and the temperature is moderate, apt for nature loving travelers. The local agriculturists in rural parts have added homestays and resort facility to welcome tourists. The rooms and cottages amidst the plantations gives a touch special holiday experience for the visitors. You can choose to stay for a short or long weekend holiday and yet cover most of the sightseeing places. I congratulate Travel Malnad team for this tremendous effort of giving seamless and safe booking facility for the best rural holidays in Malnad. We had a tremendous holiday experience by choosing as our travel partner. We will be doing multiple trips in near future. Keep up the good work.

Once we learn to experience those enchanting moments of nature then we will start realizing about the little and most beautiful things that we would have ignored in the past.

Quiet often it happens in our rat race for ‘Success’ in life in our city routines and schedules. The heavenly activities that happen as a routine around us in the nature might be very beautiful but we would have not realized its irrevocable value to stop and watch them.

If you want to take an actual break from all your work and visit nature then you must choose the Malnad region in Karnataka. It’s an overwhelmingly beautiful region with abundant natural resources everywhere.

Nature as a healing effect for soul

Why you should take those relaxing breaks in nature? The reason is very simple, we all crave for peaceful mind that can make us creative and intelligent.

Nature – Important Messages for 2018 to Protect and Preserve

When we hear the name Nature, most of the time it will be with the prefix ‘Mother Nature’. The mother who has no discrimination and always remains unbiased while providing the fundamental requirements of our life. Nature is The God who has No caste, creed, religion, place of worship, holy book… hence nature needs no introduction. It’s been our integral part from our birth and till we leave this earth. We all seek solace in the lap of Nature whenever we want and in our own unique way. Respect nature as much as you respect your own mother and teach everyone around you to do the same. That’s the greatest contribution you can make for the protection and preservation of ‘Nature’ around you.

The reason we all love nature could be different but the purpose would be most of the time the same ‘Peace’. Everyone loves to live peacefully or spend quality time doing activities amidst the nature. Some of us would be sitting in a cubicle or at a business or in a government office for long hours and due to work commitments we find less time to visit nature and enjoy. We can just simply count of visit to nature, when was the last time we saw a sunrise or a bird building its nest or river making an enchanting music? These witnesses and encounters are like enlightening moments of our lives. We stay busy most of the time and make it an excuse to not witness all these beautiful things in our nature.

2018 holiday resolutions;

The New Year 2018 has arrived; it’s like a new book with 12 new months and 365 new days for all of us to introspect and write a nice story. Be a responsible traveler and create awareness about preserving the beauty of our nature. It’s in our hearts and minds to decide whether we leave a superb footprint for our future generation to urging to preserve nature than exploiting it. We should create more greenery and contribute to the cleanliness of our rivers, oceans and forests. It is the need of the hour to spread love for nature to everyone and all stake holders whoever breathes air and drinks water on earth. It’s each and every citizen’s primary responsibility to check and stop exploitation, destruction of nature even if it is not a tourist destination or your own property. Wherever you find people spoiling our nature, stop them, take that bold step, and educate the importance of respecting nature since it is giving a lot to us without expecting anything.

If at all you want to give back something to nature then pledge from today for practicing these things which is so “Routine” and you would have ignored because of your ‘busy schedules’.

  1. Save water – Stop wasting water at kitchen, in your bathroom, in your office, at a mall or wherever not required.
  2. Save Electricity – Switch off lights, AC, fans, water heaters, mobile charging, TV… wherever you are not using them.
  3. Keep Nature Clean – Do not throw waste in the open, do not throw your burden on nature when you are traveling, do not leave the trash after you do that memorable picnic, camping, trekking, holiday, team outing… at a beautiful nature holiday destination that you visit.
  4. Do not waste food – To grow the food that we eat, nature takes a toll and farmers put a lot of effort and hard work. Respect the food you are served on a platter and you always be aware that you are a lucky person to enjoy that luxury.
  5. Educate your children to love nature – It should be a paramount home lesson that you inculcate in home lessons to your children. Train them to practice and also spread that learning among their friends and peers when they grow up.
  6. Say NO to unnecessary extravaganza weddings and parties – You can see how we waste food and abuse nature by wasting water and other resources careless about our future generations in the name of ‘celebrations’.
  7. Be a good friend to nature – If you do not have time or patience to help nature it’s absolutely fine. But do not become its enemy by abusing and destroying it in the name of ‘Having Fun’, ‘Jolly Trip’, ‘Adventure Camping’, ‘Team Outing’…
