Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree, with gay abandon!

When you love whatever you are doing, you are usually in the ‘carefree’ mood! No boundaries really bother….Here are a few captures from my exciting journey of ‘carefree’ life…… I have always been at the ‘carefree’ edge…

No road tour is planned. It is all about taking the vehicle, pack all that may be needed and go. Family does not know (neither I do) where the next halt will be and what is in store for us….

The free-falls from 100 ft high cliff into a flowing river is no less carefree ! The heart starts pounding. You have hundred questions. Would want to run away…. but finally with faith… you leap!

On every outbound, every rock-climbing and rappling experience has been a ‘carefree’ one..When you have to come down a 200ft high cliff, then you really love the challenge!

Crossing a river with self-made rafts of bamboos-and-rubber-truck-tubes is a great ‘carefree’ challenge – when the raft turns turtle and all are underneath the raft, struggling to breath.. that is the excitement!

swimming into deep-seas is a ‘carefree’ and thrilling experience that I would never miss… here are a few kids frolicking in the Arabian Sea
Incredible India! Coastal Karnataka

Have had a few experiences that hvae been ‘life-threatening’, not only for me but for the entire family….. I am adding a photographs from the ‘crossing of the overflowing Indravati’ here… After waiting for 12 hours for the water to subside, with a young child in the car, thought of taking the challenge of crossing the flooded river. When we crossed it with water coming to the window-panes of the SUV, the engine stalled in the mid-flow; that is when the really challenge came in…

It really tested our ‘faith’ !!

Incredible India ! Araku to Bastar..

On yet another occasion, stuck in the snow-laden Himalayan temple town of Gangotri on January 1st, peak winters with no soul inhabiting the temple town!!

  1. What a fantastic collection of photos. Your adventure ones really capture that feeling that is a mixture of excitement and terror. My favourite shot is of the children swimming in the sea. Managing to capture the child just as they are back-flipping is masterful.

    • Thanks ‘Might’ for your footprint… ‘terror’ hahaha.. Yes, perhaps, before the exaltation once you finish the ‘task’. I have repeatedly experienced elderly (in their fifties) who run away from adventure, literally terrorized! But once they accomplish it, they start crying!! Sharing, what they missed so far in their life !!

    • Indeed Viveka! Only when one is carefree and gets pumped by extreme challenges will one get on to such activities… Every individual can, if he or she pushes oneself to! I am sure once you cross the barrier, you would never go back…. you would say ‘bring me on!” Thanks for visiting and commenting..

      • I’m not at all … an adventures person – I get my carefree feeling when I feel really good .. and everything is just pleasant and fun around me – when everybody I care about has it pleasant. A day without pain, discomfort and pills is also carefree.
        But we all have different thrills. Thanks for replaying.

      • True Viveka… if all the loved ones are happy and healthy, it shall definitely lead to being carefree!
