COVID-19 (pandemic) : A Look into the Mirror - by Jasper Trips, New Delhi.

Jasper Trips remain confident in the power of adaptation & of our collective ability to come out stronger. Having said that, 
Learning from history, individuals are slaves to habit and, once things stabilize (we can only hope & pray it will), they get back to their comfort zones.

A new normal is never developed due to fear, but mostly driven out of necessity or rapid technological advancements. We not losing sight of the dangers we still face from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, but writing obituaries for the pre-Corona world seems very impulsive. 

The new generation, brought up on Instagram and Facebook diet, is fuelled by ambition as well as liberation, albeit with a touch of arrogant ignorance. For this generation, which has defined the social network, being unsocial is a retrograde step and quite improbable.

Apocalyptic prophecies have been made for industries in the hospitality, tourism, transport, leisure, malls, theater segments. Such predictions are easier when we are gripped by distress, and mass hysteria reigns.

For once, the fears of the virus, social distancing norms and strict lock down pedagogy on personal hygiene were thrown to the wind along with the caution, as serpentine lines extended for miles in some cities. The spectacle, which is constant across small towns and through days, is not unique to India.

The predictions or fears made for these sectors will not last long if we can think positive thoughts. People will never stop traveling. But yes, we also need to change our thinking. If you don't taste something new in life, you won't get the fun of survival.

And moments like this, reminds us we are all connected. Despite the many difficulties we all face, we would like to assure you that Jasper Trips remains fully committed to do everything in these difiicult time.

Planning a Trip to Bhutan - Must Read !!

My experience in the”Happiest Country in the World”

Where Joy Resides!!

“If you ask me,” said my friend Phuntso Choden while we were out for a ramble in the lanes and alleys of the picture postcard-pretty capital of Thimphu, Bhutan, “I would say I am happy because I have everything I need.”

 Walking through the quietly bustling streets of Thimphu I am amazed at the happy combination of tradition and modernity that the city displays. It is the most modern city of Bhutan – with restaurants, shopping centres, nightclubs, curio shops and internet cafes. Yet, at the same time, it clings on to its unique cultural heritage and age-old values.

What made the people of this small kingdom so happy, I wondered? Did everyone here think like my chum, Phuntso? Have the Bhutanese found a way around the modern world’s mad rush for fame and fortune? At places, I could see ATM counters – otherwise, a rarity in the country – a sign of the increasing trade and commerce in the land. However, the population of the city did not seem ostentatiously wealthy, on the whole. Like in any other city, there was a mix of social and economic classes.

We were passing though a market – colourful and busy; and most of the people selling there were from the lower rungs of the income ladder. But they have the same calm expression as the rest of the citizens and retained their unhurried tempo amidst all the business conducted at their stalls and around them. Everyone seemed to be suffused with a joy that came from within them, keeping them at peace with the world around them and their fellow men and women. Everyone seemed to have, to paraphrase Phuntso – everything they needed. 

So would you want to spend a few days soaking in the beauty of this hidden kingdom? As an Indian, Bhutan is a destination you can travel to without an Indian passport. For the smoothest experience of this magical land you can get in touch with the agency I contacted in Delhi – Jasper Trips – the specialists in Bhutan Travel. They would take care of everything from your entry to your time of exit, including transfers, hotel stay and food. Trust a dedicated travel agency like Jasper Trips to let you enjoy the serendipity of Bhutan to the fullest.

Standing here at the top of the world, in a tiny country nestled between India, with all its contradictions and chaos, and China with all its grim and simmering discontent, I was convinced I was at the last Shangri-La on earth. I was, indeed, in the Happiest Country in the World.

Find Hope, Happiness and pristine wilderness in Bhutan.

Planning Trip to Bhutan, Travel from India to Bhutan with ease, comfort and hassle free. Enjoy great Holiday in Bhutan with Jasper Trips.

The world is forwarding at a great pace to match up the chores of Modernization. People find it awful to get stick to their roots, but not in Bhutan.

A wholly different school of thought exists with a fondness for the heritage. Unlike the rest of the growing world, modernization is restricted here to a great extent & use of tobacco is prohibited.  You cannot find a plastic bag taken in use by the dwellers, yet there is a smile that is perennial upon the beautiful carved facial lines of the inhabitants. Bhutan, small realm of heavenly pleasures lie somewhere in the precincts of rich cultural Indian subcontinent on one side while there are lofty Himalayas on the other.

The values of ancient traditions & the charm of immaculate wildness is preserved with no compromises. People have their content hearts & smiling faces as their wealth. They are calm, simple, convivial & friendly to visitors & extend open arms to welcome them in their region.

The beliefs of Buddhism are the source of spirituality & oneness. In between all this, there is love, hope & delight that is ubiquitous in each & every corner of this small country. In case a modern mind feel trapped in the vicious mundane of worldly chores, this place would serve as nothing less than a holistic retreat. 

Life can be felt differently being there in the peace offered by the avenues or the majestic heights of the mountains or even the essence of Buddhism. In short, this place matches all criteria of being called ‘Heaven on Earth.’
