IN XANADU. A Quest

Author: William Dalrypmple.

Genre: Travelogue.

Rating:  4.5⭐

Xanadu, now Shangdu, is located in Inner Mongolia, northern China. It was the first capital and the summer capital of the Mongol Empire in the 1263. Xanadu was famous for its palaces, gardens and waterways and was Kublai Khan’s favourite summer palace.

Kublai Khan was the grandson of Genghis Khan and the founder of the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century China. He was the ruler of the Mongol Empire for 30 yrs. During his reign, Xanadu flourished, making it one of the richest kingdoms. After Kublai Khan’s death, however, Yuan Dynasty started to decline, thus changing the face of the once prosperous city to shambles. Xanadu was believed to be so beautiful, that ‘Xanadu’ term is still used as a metaphor for opulence or an idyllic place.

In 1270s Marco Polo, a Venetian merchant, explorer and a writer travelled along the Silk Route with his father and his uncle and reached Xanadu where he served the court of Kublai Khan for 17 years. Though he was not the first European to reach China, Marco Polo was the first to leave a detailed chronicle of his experience. His travel book inspired Christopher Columbus and many other travellers. Author and his companions are one of the many who decided to retake this path once taken 7 centuries back. They started from Jerusalem to reach a tedious route with multiple ethenic diversities, landscapes and overcame diplomatic complications, struggled for basic comfort to finally reach Xanadu. This travelogue takes us through two timelines, 1270s and 1980s with the glimpse of the history compared to the present . He has collated his observations with that of Marco Polos, adding his own version about the aspects which were either not present or overlooked by the later.

It does take a moment to get into the book if you don’t know the background of the topic. I had to do my own research to understand the scene. Nevertheless, it improved my knowledge and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this hilarious travelogue. It has its ups and downs but never a dull moment.

We are the secret friends – Humans and environment

l love you, you love me, l need you, you need me.

We care, we respect, we are each others pride of heart.

We feel the joy of each others smile, because we are secret friends.

Our relationship may be a mystery to you,

But little did you know it’s history.

l am your happy place of amazement

You don’t realise, l am your environment.

With plants, fruits and flowers l am the heaven

You and me as a pair makes us even.

We are bound to be together, you can never leave me.

We have a responsibility to protect each other.

No matter what, l will be there for you and you will be there for me.

Because we are the secret friends with the union of divine spirit.

Wrath of Mother Earth

Anger the mother nature,

She cannot crush love

She cannot shatter hope

She cannot corrode faith

She cannot eat away peace

She cannot destroy confidence

She cannot cripple friendship

She cannot shut out memories

She cannot silence courage

She cannot quench the spirit

But she can kill you.

A Short note – Life

“Life is just lessons from experience”

What on Earth were you looking for?

God does not create millionaires, sportsman and many other eminent personalities. It is only you the one who takes in all goodness and shine bright.

Last day on earth

Once upon a time , a men named koki lived in a village . He was careless person . He was not kind . He always hit animals. he lived near the river . He always cut down the tree unnecessary . Many people of village advice him to take of our mother land . But he ignore them . He throws his waste in the river.

One day

When he woke up he found that his surroundings was totally different from his old surroundings . Then he came out of his house . He found river has no water . And all tree has been cutted . All plant were died . Temperature was too high that even he can’t breathe . He cried and moved around the village . He found that no one is alive . All animals were dying . Sun was looking more hot . He cried and thought that I must meet the dr . APJ Abdul Kalam ( scientist ) . He is scientist so , he must be alive . But the problem was that Dr . apj Abdul Kalam lived in delhi and he lives in Pune . So he thought -‘ I must took taxi ‘. But the problem is no one alive . He steal the taxi and drove away towards delhi .

NEXT DAY

After driving 19 hrs , He reached delhi but he was thristy . He fainted due to dehydration and when he woke up he found that he was at the home of dr Abdul Kalam . He asked that why all this happening . Dr Kalam said that the earth is dieing due to global warming . We all warn you but no one take it seriously . Koki asked that now what to do ? DR . Kalam said that now we can’t do anything . But the solution is I scanned the earth through ISRO space station . I found that very few people are alive , I sent robert to bring them . We will fly to space through my space rocket to ISRO space station . Koki asked that but there is no planet where life is possible . Dr . Kalam said that our space station has the oxygen of 8 months . In This period we will find another planet .

NEXT MORNING

They all fly to space station . No one is happy as they lost thier earth and family . But the real problem is that if they don’t find another planet in 8 months they all will die .

After 8 months in space

They all enjoy in space station . They forget everthing even about real problem . And they all become family of each other . Suddenly the red alarm rings which indicates that the oxygen level is low . After few minutes they all died .

MORAL OF THE STORY – NOWADAYS WE HUMAN BEING ARE NOT TAKING CARE OF EARTH . DUE TO WHICH MAY BE THIS STORY WILL BE YOUR ONE DAYS . SO, TAKE CARE . PLANT ONE TREE EVERY MONTH . TAKE CARE OF EARTH THINKING THAT EARTH IS OUR MOTHER . IN RETURN WE WILL FIND HAPPY LIFE .
