Ever wondered why Gods chose the remote and impassable Himalayas as their abode for us to visit? Why couldn’t ‘they’ have located themselves at the now Metro ride away Kashmere Gate or the then barren, uninhabited and higher Delhi Ridge? Surely that would have saved a lot of energy and resources and would have avoided tragic disasters like the one we are presently witnessing. Why then did the omnipotent and omniscient Gods chose invincible places like Kedarnath, Badrinath and Hemkunt Sahib as their abodes? The answer lies in the awe-inspiring and mighty Himalayas and the understanding and manifestation of God through this power of Nature.
