The thought of scaling a height of 100 feet, scared me to hell and I stood unmoved staring at others who took less than 5 seconds to jump into the clear green river of Rishikesh. I wasn’t there to promote Mountain Dew or Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara. I was there on an adventure trip to Rishikesh with a group of 20.

I have never been scared of water despite not knowing how to swim. But trust me, when I boarded the raft wearing a helmet and safety jacket, I started feeling butterflies in my stomach…
