The buses were late by an hour and a half and so we left campus only by 7 am, after having breakfast. Mawphlang is just an hour’s drive from Nongthymmai. We reached there at 8.
We were divided into groups of 10 and each group had a Guide. Throughout our walk in the forest, I thought our Guide was speaking in Hindi/Khasi and I din’t listen to even a word of what he said. Only when we came back did I realize that he was actually speaking English. 🙂
The forest was quite similar to the Forbidden Forest from HP; only that Aragog and Grawp were missing.
Our walk in the forest lasted for close to two hours. Everything was green – the rocks, tree trunks, path.
The thick forest was a stark contrast to the vast expanse of the plains outside.
We returned to the comfort of our rooms by noon and slept till Snacks.
Then, I had to get out of the Mawphlang mindset and start working on QT Assignment and Committee Inductions.
Happy Friendship Day !
However, I personally feel that Friendship is eternal and doesn’t need a particular day to celebrate it.
