Rafting over the holy water of Ganges definitely tops the bucket list of every adventure enthusiast. Ganga rafting has personally been one of the most memorable experiences for me where last time I had the opportunity to experience the most enthralling experience of my life. It was late evening and the sun had left its abode in the sky. The sun’s colour coincided with that of the holy river water. Galvanic Grey. Shining and sparking its way. The water was calm and still which exhibited no signs of ensuing menace.

Birds were gliding through the bundles of clouds preconizing their mates. We huddled closer to him as the guide instructed us and got us acquainted with the basics of rafting. The calm river and the fervour to get into the rafts were resilient enough to distract us from the instructions he gave. We jumped onto the rafts with much eagerness. Phew. The paddles were longer than I was.
