Modhera sun Temple, Gujarat - The bruised horses of power stuck people destroying the idol of seven horses led chariot of Lord Sun would have served no purpose to them. By end of the day they would have found their world of happiness in some good food and sleep. But the human's thirst is endless and if its 'Power' then there is no pause button. Power gained after endless destruction leaves its scars till eternity.
Visiting the marvelous Modhera Sun Temple, with no idol of Lord Sun now, leaves my heart with duality of thoughts. I am both confound and anguished.
Confounded with the precision, hard work, method, knowledge, observation and indomitable devotion of the thousands of people who must have collected to make this jaw dropping structure of Modhera, I stood there stoned and stunned. It also left me anguished when I realised that all these majesty was plundered with one stroke of destruction by Mahmud Ghazni. Now, this place is just a magnificent ruin.
Namaste! I'm Medhavi Davda.
I travel to Evolve..
In Nature, I confide..
I find my calling in the Himalayas..
In the Oceans, I meditate..
A High-Altitude Trekker & PADI certified SCUBA Diver, I love exploring the heights and depths of the planet with my regular doses of mountains and oceans.
Discovering myself & life through nature, adventures, travels, sports and dance has been an addiction since my existence!
Quite fond of the natural & cultural diversity of India, I've travelled extensively in my own country before exploring international destinations.
I had left my 9+ yrs of career in Software Industry in a quest to make a living out of my passions. I packed my basics in my car (gave away the rest) and lived in different parts of Himachal Pradesh for 16 months. This invaluable time taught me to experience life from a broader perspective.
I'm currently living in Mumbai to work with an Adventure Travel company as a product manager for Scuba Diving. I continue living a minimalistic life.
