The road to Kumbalgarh is not a bad one,
Though I must say I have seen better ones;
The dry summer heat is relentless,
And makes the skin go dry and itchy;
The landscape is bleak, dry and brown,
And certainly does not inspire confidence;
My cellphone does not work here,
I cannot catch any of the available networks;
The rooms do not have Wi-Fi connectivity,
So I cannot check my emails.
But wait, all is not bad here.
This is the state of Rajasthan,
So, the colors are vivid and alive;
The resort is on a hill,
So the cool mountain breeze is inviting;
And this is Club Mahindra,
Which means the staff is visitor-friendly,
And the gardens make me feel I am in an oasis.
So, the moment I reach the resort,
I forget the dryness, the heat, the bleak landscape,
The cellphone, the Internet, and so on.
The only words that come to mind thereafter
Are warmth, comfort and happiness.
Thank You, Club Mahindra Fort Kumbalgarh!
