On getting down at New Tehri, I came to realize that the dam was not anywhere near. That, I'd have to go down-hill couple of kilometers ( 20 or so minutes ride ). The lake what I saw from up was Old Tehri town ( now submerged ), by the Bhagirathi river and I'd have to go till there, if I wanted a good view of the Tehri Dam ( highest dam in India ). I looked at my watch, it was almost four fourty-five pm and would get dark anytime now. And, the last bus left the hills at 5pm. One tracker, driven by an old man, stopped by. He offered to give me ride down till the dam, and then, back to Chamba for 600 bucks. On bargaining, he brought it down to 400 bucks. Hesitatingly, I took up the offer. And, suddenly, I was driving down alone with him. He was not the leery-types, but yet, gave me an uncomfortable feeling.
I tried concentrating on the views ahead; my mind, meanwhile, battling thousand thoughts.
Until, at a petrol-up below, where he filled his tracker, I made my mind to head back.
