By 23:00hours we slowly moved to our huts and retired for the day. We were immensely happy with the hospitality and the evening programmes. The previous days soreness was already history.

What a place!

That was me threatening the camp organizer not to mess with some shady food and programmes for the evening - just kidding

I was trying to aim at something only to realise that there were no pellets and the gun was already rusted

Later the realization came it was not Anna Hazare but a TBHPian with a shiny head and big mustache was the influence
