Do you know what I did last February?

As I mentioned in my last blog Struggling days and me, I have resigned from my job because I got a good opportunity somewhere else. I did all the hard work in my previous job and I was not there to reap what I sow ๐Ÿ˜›

Now I am serving my notice and I can’t be sadder because of the bonds I have formed here and the love I have received. Still, one has to go for his betterment. My time has come.

It’s just that I hadn’t written since a long time and I DO NOT ever want to walk away from my writings or traveling. Everything else is fine. Jobs come and go, people come and go, happiness comes and go, love come and go. What stays is football and passion(writing/reading/video making) โค

How was your Valentine’s month? Mine was good because I roamed with bloggers and attended weddings of Pratyusha & Nimitha โค

Below are some of the pics–

5 AM #memorableNight

And now, the best, i.e., Video about the trip and some gyan ๐Ÿ˜›

P.S.: April 2016 was special because I started Vlogging and my life has changed for the best. I have made awesome vlogging friends and people have heartily welcomed me as a motivational speaker and that actually gives me a great sleep in theย night. Today’s song is Who Am I To Stand In Your Wayย by Chester Lee โค

AtoZ challenge Day05 (E for E%&*$#)

Namaste to all the people out there.

Aren’t you fed up by looking at my ugly face, listening to my piercing voice(better than Janice’s of Friends), & my limited vocab.

I am trying to change(that was the C-word for the challenge) & trying to evolve (it’s today’s word).

โ€œSmiles here & smiles thereโ€ has gone 1 level up from 1st April. I have made a YouTube channel in which I will share inspirational thoughts & other random yet relevant thoughts & also some of my personal experiences. You can subscribe to the channel @ Darshith Badiyani.

Check out the video on alphabet E.

P.S.: You can always like/comment/share/subscribe to my YouTube channel to get direct notifications. Today’s song pick is Eye of a tigerย of Survivor. The person who inspires me with alphabet ‘E’ from blogging world is Enigma(I do not know his real name)

AtoZ challenge Day03 (C for C%$#*&)

Hello, people! How are you guys? I am back again after a Sunday break for the challenge ๐Ÿ˜‰

A break from regular work always rejuvenates us & makes us work even harder after the break.

Welcome to the 3rd-day post of A to Z challenge. Today we’ll talk on the alphabet ‘C’.

โ€œSmiles here & smiles thereโ€ has gone 1 level up from 1st April. I have made a YouTube channel in which I will share inspirational thoughts & other random yet relevant thoughts & also some of my personal experiences. You can subscribe to the channel @ Darshith Badiyani.

Options are good to have but when we just have to choose one among many, somewhere within we think that it would have been better if we had chosen a different word. My options with ‘C’ were Claim, calm, casual but I didn’t choose any of those. You can check out the video to see the ‘C’ word on which we discuss and this word is IMPORTANT in the life of each & every one of us. Without this word, there’s no life.


With this new channel, I hope to spread smiles here & smiles there & smiles THERE too ๐Ÿ˜€

P.S.: If you can connect to my videos then you can easily like/share/comment/subscribe to my YouTube channel to be regularly updated by videos. It’s the new version of Smiles here & smiles there. Today’s song pick is Count on me by Bruno Mars. My inspirational people from WP with ‘C’ are Chaitali & Chris. Chris is a great photographer & Chaitali writes on real life experiences, love, life & whatever ๐Ÿ˜›

I also forgot to mention other inspirational people from blogging arena who inspire me with alphabet ‘A’ and they are Archana(& Desh too), Alok, Adi, Ankita, Akiraa, Akhila. I may again forget to add people in their respective alphabet post. So I will add them in the upcoming ones. Thank you for being a part of my life ๐Ÿ™‚

Yet another day of the trip..

Finally I am back again. Remember where we left off? Let’s rewind ๐Ÿ˜‰

If you haven’t read the previous post, you can find them About the on going tripย ๐Ÿ™‚

This post was written when I was on trip to Manali and Amritsar ๐Ÿ™‚ [During New year’s trip and don’t judge me on my level of procrastination] ๐Ÿ˜€

This post is aboutย the good, the bad & the ugly memories of Solang valley, where we went next.

The morning started as usual with good breakfast. We had decided to go to Rohtang pass.

Solang valley was on the way to it & we decided to pay a visit there first. The place looked good when we saw ice & we all were eager to have our first encounter with ice, which was the next true reason for going on this trip, and SNOW being the first(No! Not Jon snow, silly :D). A bad news was that on talking to local people, we learned that it didn’t snow since some days ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But there was ice everywhere and we all played with it.


Panorama of the way to Solang valley


By we, I mean, my friends & I. There’s this photographer guy, Pandey Ji(our cameraman for most of the videos), Mr. Silent(Suku, his nickname) and an unknown guy. This post is the dedication to the braveness of this unknown guy. And then there’s me and I don’t have to mention how awesome I am ๐Ÿ˜›




Solang valley



We got TREKKING shoes on rent, similar to what we wore during our school time NCC days. We hoped that it will help us not skid on the ice & also our shoes will not be muddy from the melting ice. Thorough thinking is an art and we’re the MASTERS because in the end we’re engineers ๐Ÿ˜€

We were talking among ourselves and also clicking some pics. We also interacted with people who were walking opposite to our direction. They said there is a Shivaย temple at the peak of the hill.

We decided to go up to the peak. We were also told that we will cross zero point. It’s a place where there is no sun rays and the temperature is negative for 8 months a year. It was indeed a great scenery.


After walking for 3-4 km, we reached the peak, opened our ARMY shoes because we were to enter into the Shiva temple. The floor of the temple was chill cold. We worshipped the idols and on asking came to know that Shiva linga is more 300 metres ahead and this distance is the even colder and located on a steep side.IMG_20151228_151950352


The unknown guy was injured from aย fall on the ice. Minor injuries, no need to worry much. Some of us weren’t that eager for that 300m, which was full of thick, slippery ice. We could see others going ahead & trying to keep their hold on ice & walk at snail’s pace.

Pandey Ji & I started for that 300m & after walking just a few metres, we saw that the remaining gang was behind us & that was good to see & and made all of us more determined for that 300m. “We may fail but failing together has its charm”. We survived that 300m walk and I don’t want to re-live that dangerous & slippery walk. I would rather do The famous moon walk at home instead of this slippery ice walk ๐Ÿ˜› While returning from that top after worshipping the Shiv ling, we made the below video.

My sincere request to ignore the swearing & in the coming videos Iย have controlled my swearings but to tell the truth, I love swearing ๐Ÿ˜€

As we said in the video, we would return in the car or the horses, that was not the case. We returned by walking. Long walk. Great walk! Nothing like Walk of shame(GOT fans can relate and I am so much usiong GOT reference) ๐Ÿ˜›

It was almost evening when we reached near the parking lot. We returned the worn out shoes and it was a great day indeed. We returned to our hotel and after dinner, we all slept like babies.

Next day was all upon us far early than ever. Pandey Ji is the early riser.ย He has not allowed me to sleep peacefully. I am going to make him look so bad & ugly here *evil laugh* ๐Ÿ˜€




So, did you recognise this Unknown guy? He’s awesome & helpful & hence his name, The Jugaad guy.


That stick is what made the life of The Unknown guy easier and hence, it has importance too.

No thotorugh thinking helps, even when you’re engineer because Life is bigger than everything ๐Ÿ˜€

“Life is a classroom outside of classroom.”

Rest story coming soon. Stay tuned.

Pardon my procrastination ๐Ÿ˜€
