“To stay the course, sometimes you have to make waves”, one of the kayakers said. The adrenaline rush was high, the participants were all set to get into the water with their colorful Kayaks. I could see yellow, green kayaks matched with the colorful helmets sported by the adventurers.The eyes of the locals were filled with excitement and enthusiasm. We passed a portion of the dense vegetation surrounding the area, with the aid of big rocks and lean passages.Finally, somehow, we managed to reach the base of the stream. The loud sound of the gushing water broke the silence of the environment. The visitors were geared up with their mobiles and cameras to capture the best. Manik Taneja, co-founder of the festival seemed busy walking around with a walkie-talkie, helping the cops by keeping a check on the safety of the incoming tourists flooding on the slippery rocks to have the best glimpse. The executive photographers were waiting in patience with their cameras clung to their hands. The competitors were receiving attention from the police, media professionals and the locals, of course- young enthusiasts, men and women of all ages came to support the festival. The whole environment was full of life, energy and enthusiasm.
