Kareri Lake ~ a poetic trail

Gaddis are basically a nomadic tribe who mainly lead a pastoral life depending on their cattle for their livelihood and wander in the high altitude alpine meadows for green and protein rich grass for their cattle and the nectar like pure water. These gaddis seem to be the happiest souls in the world without any worry cheering and living life happily in the lap of mother nature enjoying her eternal and purest beauty to the fullest. You envy at their life for a moment and then wish if you were born a gaddi, maybe in your next life…:)

Himachal Yatra – कांगड़ा

Kangra fort was built by Katoch rajputs of Kangra and was almost invincible, due to its mere geography. The fort is situated on a wall like mountain, surrounded by a deep and fast flowing Baan Ganga river from three sides. Fourth side had dense forest. Many Muslim invaders tried to win it but were always defeated.

It was due to treason of one minister of the king that the fort was finally won by Jahangir, the mogul king. The traitor minister asked moguls to make him the king and revealed the secret entry point to the invading army. However, the minister was beheaded by the invading army after conquering the fort. A good lesson for traitors !!
