DAY 28 – Mussoorie, Uttarakhand

I’d visited Mussoorie before, but this trip was different. This time, it was more than a stopover. It was a vacation in the clouds.

Chai from the tapri, fried pakodas, fried jalebis, steamed momos and ice cream. 

Oh, there was also pizza and pancakes. Okay, maybe it was more of a food tour.

But the highlight of the trip was meeting legendary author Ruskin Bond. As we walked along Mall Road, we came across Cambridge Bookstore, which had a board mentioning Mr Bond’s visit. It said he’d be at the store for two hours interacting with readers and signing their books. I took this opportunity to do a quick interview with him (you can read it here). This truly was a moment of sheer luck and I’m glad that for once, I was at the right place at the right time.
