RI KYNJAI – Traditional, Captivate and Luxurious (Part1)

I was on the drive from Shillong to Guwahati. A memorable trip of North East part of India was coming to end. I was abuzz with remembered pleasure. But there was something for which I was awaiting long. While I am grumpy traveler, but when it comes to luxury resorts I’m a quailing novice.

Ri-Kyanji was attracting to me. On the route of Shillong to Guwahati, Set against the backdrops of enchanting Khasi hills, Ri Kynjai spread over 45acres of lush greeneries, as I drove up to resort through grove of majestic pine trees, lush paddy fields, small organic tea and vegetable gardens, my first view of unique traditional and hybrid cottages were calling me.

The booking has been already done by me. But it was the first time I was entering towards the massive wooden gates of Ri Kynjai. Resort architecture was looking inspired from the original khasi thatch huts, from the outer sides resorts was reflecting traditional echo centric culture and captivating architecture combined with modern convenience and luxury. After some formalities on 24hours front desk, I took possessions of my 1091sq ft cottage.

Fan cooled cottage was fitted with a sofa seating area, Cable TV and a dressing table. There was a fireplace of hewn granite in bedroom area, a high ceiling lined with red pine walls and flooring and wooden steps which were leading up to a loft. The glass frontage of cottage was giving a spectacular view of private deck, beyond which azure waters of Umiam Lake was sprawling a panoramic view. A sleeping and living area, bathroom, dressing room, and a balcony were enough to think that rooms were spacious and meticulously planned. (To be continued…)

I didn’t get happy; As a young professional I was missing all the thing or about love, balance, meaning, but I had no idea what they were called or where to look for them. I was searching something else, a way? An idea about what was important. I decided to blow it all up and do the things which I really wanted to do. For one, changing carrier can be a karmic kick in the butt. So, in February 2011, I started looking. I moved from one city to another, and that was all it took. “Always believe that something wonderful is about to happen.” This was the little thing that was holding me back all that time. My life will not apart if I do things differently. Anyway, it took me a stupidly long time to realize that but then it unlocked several doors. I started my carrier in writing. I gave myself permission to try and fail at every step that result me something positive. For me, healthiest thing which I have ever done was broken up with my past memories, habits, some friends and others. Now I am writing crappy pitches to glossy magazines, surprisingly writing some awful short travel stories, scraping by making a living, just starting a blog, taking picture and roaming many destin
