Our escape in a beautiful day of September meant to travel from Islamabad to Lahore.
We caught the couch from a very crowded coach station in Islamabad and had a great time during the travel. I remember in that day I have been surprised by so many many things.
Apart of the fact I was looking through the window to the all landscape which flows in our views, I was striving to catch the best clicks I could, while the couch run on the road. In all this time, AB came over with descriptions and short legends and history by the times and places.
The river Jhelum was regarded as a god by the ancient Greeks, as were most mountains and streams.
The poet Nonnus in the Dionysiaca makes the Hydaspes a titan -descended god, the son of the sea-god Thaumas and the cloud-goddess Elektra . He was the brother of Iris, the goddess of the rainbow, and half-brother to the Harpier, the snatching winds. Since the river is in a country foreign to the ancient Greeks, it is not clear whether they named the river after the god, or whether the god Hydaspes was named after the river.
Alexander the Great and his army crossed the Jhelum in BC 326 at the Battle of the Hydaspes River where it is believed that he defeated the Indian king, Porus.
Live your beautiful life!
While there is life, there is hope!
