    Drive Date!
    It was around the end of February when I met this pretty girl on a blind date, set up by my roommate and we hit it off the moment she told me that she loves to travel. Fast forward to two weeks later, we were on the road to Purushwadi to attend the fireflies festival!

    Mr. Raj
    I made some calls and arranged for our stay in the little town of Purushwadi, hosted by Mr. Raj. He was probably the most humble and the best host ever(or at least in the top 5). Took care of our food and stay, showed us around, great guy!

    We were attended by this little fella while Mr. Raj went strawberry picking for us. He started showing us around and started from this little pool which was right behind his school. Sweet guy.

    Calmness of the place!
    The little fellow wanted to take us to a nearby hilltop where, he told us, he goes after school, everyday. Walking towards the top, we found this pretty little pond of clear water, surrounded by trees on three sides. We sat there for sometime with our feet dipped in the water. (:

    Serenity!
    After a short uphill walk of around 20 minutes we reached this beautiful place. I could touch the clouds. It was an instant recollection of the "Field of Love" quote by Rumi. I didn't want to go back. It was so mesmerising!

    We sat there for over an hour, just staring into the infinity. I planted my phone for a time-lapse of the monsoon sky as soon as the mist disappeared. We both were busy gossiping and lost track of time. Junior came to ask us to head back home for the brunch. We left.

    Blazing Sunset!
    It was almost time. We were super excited. Also, this amazing sunset that day looked like the clouds were set ablaze by the sinking sun. Wonderous!

    Fireflieeesss!!!!
    It was finally dark. We headed a little deeper into the woods to watch the magic in action. We reached the "spot" after a five minute walk. And there it was! The dance of the fireflies! Unbelievably amazing! Felt nothing short of pure magic. What a sight that was!

    LIT!
    Have you ever seen something so beautiful? The whole of the forest was lit up by these tiny magical creatures. It appeared as if I've entered the sets of Harry Potter. Unreal!

    It's fascinating, the wonders that a swarm of these tiny creatures can create. Magical mystical creations of mother nature. ★F I N★
