At times you imagine a few things and scoff at yourself for the vivid images your mind displays, which is plainly bifurcated:
Into one- imagination that can never come true.
And two- intuition that always comes true.
What happens when the border between these thoughts merges?
The inexplicable and the unbelievable.

Here is my story, about how I conquered, how I lived, how I won, how I emerged. As a warrior.


The excitement in me gutted it's way through my hormones, as the adrenaline paced up when I saw the airplane tickets in my palms.
I rolled my eyes as I swiftly wiped another bead of sweat trickling down my forehead. Shaping my long, brown hair into a bun, I sighed.
This summer vacation is sure storing in some adventures.

"Rajasthan," I whispered to myself.

I opened my diary and marked the date. Not because this vacation looked lavish and grand, but because it seemed like it promised something I would never forget.

Plopping on the bed and staring at my father who didn't spare me one glance, I continued to let a string of questions stumble out of my mouth. I was certain he knew, my eyes were fixated on him.

"We're going for twenty days," came his response.

"But where do we–"

"I haven't decided yet, Nandini."
I frowned.
"Maybe you could help?" His eyes were constantly trained on the computer.
I adjusted myself on the bed with excitement flowing through my veins, allowing my lips to form a wide grin.
"Really?" I chirped. Clapping my hands, I squealed.
"I'll make the list right away!"

I heard my dad chuckle before skipping on to my younger brother, who was just as focused as my father on his video game. Huffing a deliberately loud breath, I rolled my eyes when I gained no attention.
I walked over to him and flicked the back of his head.
"We're going to Rajasthan, you potato!"

Rajasthan. Where my world was about to turn upside down.
