Sense of Place : Its never an easy journey uphill to a place which is truly called as "Heaven on Earth". I experience this during my lifetime journey to Leh-Ladakh (Trans-Himalayan ranges in India). The long and winding roads leads you to a land from where only your body can return, your soul stays back. Such roads cutting across mountains and high-altitude passes are ably maintained and carved out by BRO (Border Roads Organization of India). Such a sight immediately beckons you ! reminding you of the place called Ladakh - Heaven on Earth !
