27th June 04

A very bad morning for me, for I had to get up very early. Mummy and Daddy didn’t sleep all through. They were packing bags and making arrangements for our journey. But today I felt they are very partial. They never wake up Babloo, my three years old brother. They say he will mess up things. We started for Jagdalpur at 7 o’clock in the morning. We were going to my Dadi Ma’s house. In the train I slept for 2-3 hours. Both Babloo and I had a lot of fun. We ate, drank,sang, played and did everything we could. Babloo made sure that mummy wouldn’t take rest. We had our dinner in the train.

मेरे लिए एक बहुत बुरी सुबह थी, क्योंकि मुझे बहुत जल्दी उठना था। मम्मी और डैडी को नींद नहीं आई। वे बैग पैक कर रहे थे और हमारी यात्रा की व्यवस्था कर रहे थे। लेकिन आज मुझे लगा कि वे बहुत आंशिक हैं। वे मेरे तीन साल के भाई बबलू को कभी नहीं जगाते। वे कहते हैं कि वह चीजों को गड़बड़ कर देगा। हम जगदलपुर के लिए सुबह सात बजे शुरू हुए। हम अपने दादी माँ के घर जा रहे थे। ट्रेन में मैं 2-3 घंटे सोता था। बबलू और मैं दोनों ने खूब मस्ती की। हमने खाया, पीया, गाया, खेला और वो सब कुछ किया जो हम कर सकते थे। बबलू ने सुनिश्चित किया कि मम्मी आराम नहीं करेंगी। ट्रेन में हमारा डिनर था।

Oh! what the an experience it was of sleeping in the train. I felt as if I was sleeping in a swing. Early in the morning at 6 o’clock our train reached Jagdalpur.Anup uncle andTina aunty had come to the railway station to recieve us. Dadi Ma was waiting for us at home. We took some rest. I went with my uncle to the market. Babloo was busy with Dadi Ma. In the evening at about 7 o’clock we went to visit theChitrakut Waterfall. We reached there at 7:30. The waterfall was looking beautiful. The effect of lights added to its beauty. Babloo was the happiest person in the world. He wassinging and clapping and was not ready to come back. We returned at 10 o’ clock and had our dinner.

ओह! ट्रेन में सोने का अनुभव कैसा रहा। मुझे लगा जैसे मैं झूले में सो रहा था। सुबह जल्दी 6 बजे हमारी ट्रेन जगदलपुर पहुँच गई। अनूप चाचा और टीना चाची हमें लेने रेलवे स्टेशन आए थे। दादी मां घर पर हमारा इंतजार कर रही थीं। हमने कुछ आराम किया। मैं अपने चाचा के साथ बाज़ार गया। बबलू दादी माँ के साथ व्यस्त था। शाम को लगभग 7 बजे हम चित्रकूट जलप्रपात घूमने गए। हम 7:30 बजे वहाँ पहुँचे। झरना सुंदर लग रहा था। रोशनी का असर इसकी खूबसूरती में और बढ़ गया। बबलू दुनिया का सबसे खुश व्यक्ति था। वह ताली बजा रहा था और ताली बजा रहा था और वापस आने को तैयार नहीं था। हम 10 बजे की घड़ी में लौटे और अपना डिनर किया।

30th June 04


I had to get up early in the morning. But later on I enjoyed the day. Dadi Ma made my favourite ‘Aloo paratha’.


मुझे सुबह जल्दी उठना था। लेकिन बाद में मैंने दिन का आनंद लिया। दादी मां ने मेरा पसंदीदा ‘आलू पराठा’ बनाया।


In the morning at 9 o’clock we started for Kanger valley National Park. We took a taxi. My uncle made arrangements to cook food there. In the National Park, we saw many wild animals and birds in their natural surroundings like Cheetah, Neelgai, Deer, Wild pigeons and Peacocks etc. Afterlunch we took rest and played hide and seek, badminton, antakshari and many more games. We also danced to tunes of film songs. We took a guide from Kutumsar Naka (check post). We saw the Kutumsar caves. As we entered the caves, Babloo started crying as it was very dark there. He lost his sandals there. The huge ‘Shivling’ and the world famous blind fishes in Shankar kund are the attractions for the tourists. We also saw the ‘Apsara Vihar’. Babloo was the busiest person running here and there without sandals. All the time he was holding my frock and saying “Didi humme bhi khilaona unn…..”. On our way back we enjoyed icecream. I want to sleep…..


सुबह 9 बजे हम कांगेर घाटी राष्ट्रीय उद्यान के लिए शुरू हुए। हमने एक टैक्सी ली। मेरे चाचा ने वहाँ खाना बनाने की व्यवस्था की। नेशनल पार्क में, हमने कई प्राकृतिक जानवरों और पक्षियों को उनके प्राकृतिक परिवेश में देखा जैसे कि चीता, नीलगाय, हिरण, जंगली कबूतर और मोर आदि। बाद में हमने आराम किया और लुका-छिपी, बैडमिंटन, एंटीशास्त्री और कई और खेल खेले। हमने फिल्मी गीतों की धुनों पर नृत्य भी किया। हमने कुटमसार नाका (चेक पोस्ट) से एक गाइड लिया। हमने कुटुमसर गुफाओं को देखा। जैसे ही हम गुफाओं में दाखिल हुए, बबलू रोने लगा क्योंकि यह वहां बहुत अंधेरा था। उसने अपनी चप्पलें वहीं खो दीं। शंकर कुंड में विशाल ‘शिवलिंग’ और विश्व प्रसिद्ध अंधी मछलियां पर्यटकों के लिए आकर्षण का केंद्र हैं। हमने ‘अप्सरा विहार’ भी देखी। बबलू यहां और वहां बिना चप्पल के चलने वाला सबसे व्यस्त व्यक्ति था। हर समय वह मेरी फ्रॉक को पकड़े हुए था और कह रहा था “दीदी हमें भी खिलौना …..”। वापस अपने रास्ते पर हमने आइस्क्रीम का आनंद लिया। मै सोना चाहता हूँ…..

1st July, 04

All of us woke up in the morning.After taking bath we started for Dantewada. We enjoyed our journey very much as on both the sides of roads there were big trees, beautiful hills of Bailadilla and the Bastar tribes in their traditional costume added the natural beauty of that region. The climate was also cold and pleasant. The Danteshwari Maa’s temple is situated where the two rivers Shankani and Dankani meet. There are three buildings in the temple— the Natya Mandal, the Sabha Griha and the Garbha Griha. After offering our prayers we returned to Jagdalpur. All of us, Anup uncle, Aunty, Dadima, Subhash uncle, Swati (5 years) and Shanu (7 years) enjoyed the journey in a van. Really,we enjoyed a lot.

हम सब सुबह उठे। स्नान करने के बाद हमने दंतेवाड़ा के लिए शुरुआत की। हमने अपनी यात्रा का बहुत आनंद लिया क्योंकि दोनों तरफ सड़कें थीं, बड़े पेड़ थे, बैलाडिला की खूबसूरत पहाड़ियाँ और बस्तर जनजातियों ने अपनी पारंपरिक वेशभूषा में उस क्षेत्र की प्राकृतिक सुंदरता को जोड़ा। जलवायु भी ठंडी और सुखद थी। दंतेश्वरी मां का मंदिर, जहां शंकनी और दनकनी दो नदियां मिलती हैं। मंदिर में तीन इमारतें हैं- नाट्य मंडल, सभा गृह और गर्भ गृह। अपनी प्रार्थनाएँ देने के बाद हम जगदलपुर लौट आए। हम सभी, अनूप चाचा, चाची, दादिमा, सुभाष चाचा, स्वाति (5 वर्ष) और शानू (7 वर्ष) ने एक वैन में यात्रा का आनंद लिया। सच में, हमें बहुत मज़ा आया।

4th July, 04

In the morning we reached our Munni Mousie’s house at Dongargarh. All through the way Islept in the van. They have a beautiful garden in their house. In the garden, there is a swing and a pond. Akshat, Munni Mousie’s son and Babloo became friends. They spent the whole day in the garden swinging and watching the fishes in the pond.

सुबह हम अपने मुन्नी मौसी के घर डोंगरगढ़ पहुँचे। वैन में इस्लेप्ट के रास्ते सभी। उनके घर में एक सुंदर बगीचा है। बगीचे में, एक झूला और एक तालाब है। अक्षत, मुन्नी मौसी के बेटे और बबलू दोस्त बन गए। उन्होंने पूरा दिन बगीचे में झूला झूलने और मछलियों को तालाब में देखने में बिताया।

5th July, 04

In the morning again, we got up early and went to offer our prayers to Bamleshwari Maai. There are 1000 steps. There is one more temple at the foot of the hill. It is called Chhoti Bamleshwari Ma. After the ‘Darshan’ at 9 o’clock we returned from the temple. In the afternoon we went to Durg to our Nani Ma’s house. During dinner all of us sat together. Babloo also wanted a plate. He went to kitchen and brought a plate for himself. After dinner we all sat together and talked for a long time. Babloo fell asleep while he was in Nanima’s lap listening to everybody. I was very happy today.

सुबह फिर से हम जल्दी उठे और अपनी माँ बम्लेश्वरी माई के पास प्रार्थना करने गए। 1000 चरण हैं। पहाड़ी के पैर में एक और मंदिर है। इसे छोटी बम्लेश्वरी मा कहा जाता है। 9 बजे ‘दर्शन’ के बाद हम मंदिर से लौट आए। दोपहर में हम दुर्ग में अपने नानी मा के घर गए। रात के खाने के दौरान हम सभी एक साथ बैठे। बबलू को भी एक प्लेट चाहिए थी। वह रसोई में गया और अपने लिए एक थाली ले आया। रात के खाने के बाद हम सब एक साथ बैठे और काफी देर तक बातें करते रहे। बबलू तब सो गया जब वह नानीमा की गोद में था और सबकी बातें सुन रहा था। मैं आज बहुत खुश था।
