Going to Meghalaya which is in India's NorthEast was like a dream for me. Being a proper Delhiite our weekend or long trip usually is Goa, Uttrakhand and Himachal Pradesh but still northeast for us was some distant place but for me, it was a paradise waiting to be explored!
Honestly, I wouldn’t in my wildest dream have imagined going there that too alone but destiny had it.
I had to visit Guwahati for some work and then it struck me that Meghalaya is barely 2hrs away from Guwahati. Then I started my long planning and talking to every person who has gone there, bombarding numerous questions, stalking people on Instagram (yes I am that crazy). But there is one question I asked everyone there. Is it safe to go alone there?
I visited the paradise, the hidden gem of our country which is so untouched and raw that it took my heart! I can never forget this beautiful trip to Meghalaya. It taught me a lot of things about me and about nature! I dared to go there alone and did I feel lonely? I guess never for a second I felt it as I was surrounded by amazing food, helping people who are so warm and welcoming and the beautiful Meghalaya.
It’s true that travelling has the potential to change you into a better person! Well, I myself experienced it and now a firm believer of this notion. I said goodbye to Meghalaya with that nostalgic feeling and promised to come here again to see more undiscovered part of this state. Meghalaya practices a matrilineal system, where women take the family name and are dominant in the household affairs. Most shops are managed by women. Observe this welcome change while you are in Meghalaya.
I am so proud of this state of India which is so modern, giving more importance and respect to the woman than any other state of the country, giving better health facility and the standard of living there is so up to the mark which is 100% safe for the woman!
