Travelogue – 24 Hours in Amritsar

More often than not, we plan a perfect itinerary for our travels, spending enough time to detail out the routes, places to visit, accommodation, ticket bookings, etc. All this is to ensure a hassle free travel, surely.

Monsoon Travel to the Royal Town Of Rajpipla in Gujarat

I thoroughly enjoy travelling to offbeat places. There’s isn’t much said or known about such places which adds to thrill of exploring a new land without any preconceived ideas or notions.  It’s like sailing into the uncharted waters, but you need to have an open mind to travel to the lesser known places for they might or might not turn out to be what you expect.

People and Places, East Sikkim

An incessant talker Amma, stops by my room, every morning – next to which is her garden. Even at over 80years, she is very active and I see her working in the kitchen, which is opposite to my room, or in her garden which is what I see outside the window of this tiny room that her son and daughter-in-law have rented out to me. Beyond her gardens, the view opens up into a panorama of lush mountains enveloped in mist.
