    If Pears Can Be Red, Why The Crows Should Remain Black??

    It was a mother-daughter story-session and ‘Glowingal’ was gladly telling me the story of a Crow who was very unhappy with his colour. When he saw a Swan swimming in a serene lake, displaying his glorious white plumage, the crow got desperate. Thinking, it might be the result of a daily swim in the lake, he too started taking bath and would spend hours rubbing his body against the mud. Neither his colour nor his determination faded, instead, he felt sick and died. She made sure I hear the Moral , “You can change habits not the Nature.” I was thinking, How unfair of Nature! Then another day, we received a…

    Umaid Bhawan Palace

    The residence of Jodhpur’s Royal Family, mere sight of which sends you to a different world.

    Hospitality By-Chance

    Last week, I was at Akshay’s house. Yes, Akshay! Bollywood’s daring Khiladi… A-k-s-h-a-y K-u-m-a-r! Akshay and Twinkle, one of my favourite bollywood couples, invited ‘this couple’ for a sleepover in their house. Isn’t it splendid? And you know what in-spite of having a big house; they offered us their own bedroom so that we have a ‘night for life’. Enthralled, we entered the room having just a bed and a cupboard. We were knocked-for-six. “That is all! Even our bedroom is way more appealing.” My prying hands reached the handles of the cupboard and…there, opened a whole world in front of my eyes. Some sort of cascade with countless dresses, bags, shoes,…

    Mehrangarh Fort Jodhpur

    First thing that one notices after arriving at Jodhpur is ‘Mehrangarh Fort’. It is situated on a hill top encircled by the city. Without any doubt, the majestic fort is well maintained and tells myriad tales of its glorious past. There’s an entry ticket of 50 Rs per person and 100 Rs are charged for carrying the camera inside. To know the complete history, you can hire a personal guide or choose an audio tour by paying 170 Rs, I opted the latter. Various points of significance have been marked; all you have to do is give your feet a pause and press a button. As you continue climbing uphill,…

    Jovial Jodhpur

      People say ‘Rajpoots’ have their roots in Rajasthan, Being one, I always had an intense desire to touch the land of our ancestors and taste the royalty of bygone eras. I managed to steal a few days and chose ‘Jodhpur’ and ‘Jaipur’ for a trip. Over to Blue city ‘Jodhpur’: ‘Jodhpur’ is a Beautiful city in the western ‘Rajasthan’. Founded in 1459 by Rao Jodha, a Rajpoot chief of Rathore Clan. Also known as Sun City, Jodhpur experiences bright and sunny weather throughout year. So the best time to travel this city is between October and March. Before this visit, I knew Jodhpur for two reasons- for the shooting…
