Finally took the plunge!! Good I dared!

Posted : Jul 25, 2023

After a lapse of many years somehow came to know of PHURR. What an imaginative name! A travel agency run by Gaurav. And I was about to go to the place of "Wild Asses", that too with some unknown single ladies right from Delhi where I reside and couples from other part of country. I was excited... Gaurav and his Phurr hooked me and I finally took the plunge!! Good I dared!!

I was going through the itinerary and read about "Little Rann" and its "Wild Asses". I could imagine Rann of Kutch heard these when in school.. it was marked in the Oxford Atlas, but Little Rann"???  "ASSES" that too "Wild Asses"? Do "Asses" need to be protected??!!And a "sanctuary" only for them? I wondered

It was a nine days trip, covered so many places. There were Mandirs, Step-wells, Sanctuaries, Light and Sound shows. Each night a different place, a different hotel /resort.

PHURR is a quaint travel agency (so different from others) where each one of us felt pampered with our wishes fulfilled.... Some one had wondered aloud if we could have Lohri and we landed up with a bonfire! That to in the midst of the Gir forest /jungle.

We were a group of 17coming from different parts of India speaking different languages with vast culture differences. Yours truly (me), representing Eastern India---Bengal to be precise. I'll still remember the day we had Kathiawadi food (Day 1) which was very tasty but too hot for my palate. Before I could make a nuisance of myself it was seen to that I had bowls of sugar, Gulab jamuns and sugar syrup. From then on my food was taken care of by my fellow travellers (who have now become my family) from Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Lucknow, Dehradoon. They all made sure I had my "sweet at my seat! Was not expecting it from people who met me 1 day before I love you all!!

There was this ever-smiling lady, who spoke only Kannad ---she became one of us in no time. Language had nothing to do with our "bon-homie". My own Hindi is atrocious (many make fun of it)-but this mini India never commented. These language and cultural barriers never stopped us To Connect.

And Gaurav, our Travel Buddy, my personal escort--full of energy, always with new tricks up his sleeves to relieve us of boredom, ever ready to jump at new ideas, ever smiling, easily approachable, never tired -always as fresh as A Daisy. l thank you once again for coaxing me to experience the joy of touring with PHURR. Now I know I would have missed the JOY more than the WILD ASSES.

May the spirit of PHURR always remain like this. Best of luck!!

Awesome , amazingly wonderful comprehensive story. Jamoon eaten radogullawali nutty little young girl's narrative has made me spell bound. Left with no extra superlatives. Gaurav you got icing with cherry on the cake

I also discovered Phurr...a nice name. ..for a traveling group on facebook and was hesitant initially but after talking to Gaurav all my apprehensions evaporated.l wanted to take the plunge through Gujurat tour and enjoyed it immensely. We all were given special attention as we undertook the kutch journey. All credit goes to the owner of the company Gaurav.
