    Rishikesh: The Yoga Capital of World

    If we go by words, ‘Rishikesh’ would mean the ‘Locks of Sage’ but I am not sure if it is relevant or not but what I know is that this city has definitely something to do with sages…🙂 Rishikesh Drive some 25 km upstream from Haridwar and you find yourself amid variety of people: Learners, Adventurers, Relaxers, Seekers and Wanderers. Yes, this is what ‘Rishikesh’ is known for. Located on both sides of emerald river Ganga, Rishikesh has succeeded in maintaining its spell on the natives as well as foreigners, equally; I too went there as a wanderer or probably was yet to discover my purpose. Initially there were attempts…

    My World Was Longing for A Rejuvenation :)

    I woke up this morning, To the arrival of my fair lady; A guest so cherished, A reason for much celebration. So white, so light like feather, Having the purity of an angel; Inspiring me to charge up, And see the hidden motivation. To do my duty silently, Without any flashes or roars; No desire to show it off, Without disturbing any imagination. To work towards a magical world overnight, Which clearly needed a renovation.

    For A ‘Change’ Only

    Its Monday folks! The worst day of the week you bet, where I am always running late in the morning for everything. The Fun day (Sunday) makes me so sluggish that it has become a habit to forget one or a few things at home and repent later. But this Monday, I am in no hurry as you can see; I am writing! 🙂 Thanks to Pt Nehru, our first Prime minister; it’s his birthday today and our country celebrates it as ‘Children’s Day’ which is really cool. Why? Come on, we all have our days, don’t we? So first of all, here’s me wishing every kid over there, a…

    These Hills Definitely Have Eyes

    Sometimes people tell things, you have no idea of! And then suddenly information start coming from every possible source as if some supernatural power wants you to know all about it or may be I am just imagining it! 😉 Once I was in a conversation with a colleague…about the life of hill people which obviously for them seems ‘impossibly hard’. I am done explaining to people that it’s actually the opposite provided you are making good money, there’s no better place to live than hills! (By hills, I don’t mean hills, they do have houses 😉 ) It no more surprises me when they ask silly questions like, “How…

    An Unusual Date With Nature

    Last month, I put my feet on this marvellous land mentioned in ancient scriptures for its unknownness, and in current books for its difficult life conditions. I entered the gateway to the cold desert of India and celebrated some of its amazing and unique  hues. Lately, it was a dream and now fulfilled, though partially. I still yearn to explore the valleys on foot, may be some day! Our first halt was ‘Reckong Peo’- the town, surprisingly with every amenity necessary for a comfortable life. Earlier, I had the opinion of its being backward and tough (the result of its such portrayal by criers). The location is wonderful and sunny, and the…

    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…

    Tolerance versus Common-sense

    Few days back I happen to come across a blog regarding INDIA, The foreign writer shared many good and bad experiences while his stay here. Though I might be upset for many things but at the same time, I have more reasons to love my country and definitely felt offended at certain points and thought, “How could someone be so judgemental?” I mean, “Not every street of this second most populous country in the world is dung-stained! And not all Indians, sleep anywhere they find a space to fit in (we do have descent homes!).You may have a privilege to live a life which many Indians or many humans, for that…
