Amarnath Yatra


AUM Namashivaya...!




My Amarnath Yatra & the Key People

My Amarnath Yatra could materialize because of these two Rams without whom, I would not have had the greatest opportunity of my life....Having Dharshan of Amarnath..! I should be thanking Ramaswamy and Rammohan for my life for leading me to the divine presence..! Thanking them is too trivial and inadequate for the service they have rendered to me and to hundreds of their friends...! Whenever I remember Amarnath , my hands fold of my reverence to Lord Shiva - and of my fond memories of these Rams to offer my Namaskarams..!

Ramaswamy, one of my neighbours and best friends, has the distinction of having visited Amarnath a number of times, is an integral part of the team that manages the Amarnath trip and plays a key role. Each time he would visit, I used to tell him I would join him the next time...Finally he booked my tickets this year and I could make it because of his patient perseverance with me..!.

Rammohan has been coordinating the Amarnath trip for years now and his knowledge on Amarnath is vast.His tour management ability is impeccable and second to none. He has meticulously planned all aspects of the tour that we did not feel the stress of the long and arduous journey even for a minute..! He has planned and been carrying all ingredients needed for south indian delicacies so carefully that we felt as if we were eating every meal at home...! He has been playing the role of mother Annapurani so well that we were provided dinner in the train on our return..! By the way ,tourism is not his profession- Rammohan has been coordinating the Amarnath Yatra for years as a service without any expectation in return- in fact, I am sure, he spends from his pocket during the tour..!

May God bless them with long life and prosperity...!
