Summer of Ups and Dawns

This summer came up with a different energy, ideas and aspirations for travel 😊. Summer of 2019….not 69. Destinations that I have been planning to visit forever, finally came to life and I paid my visit to these places. And today I will start with Ramgarh and Bhowali in Uttarakhand. Ramgarh is a small hill…

Rush Hour And Memories: Singapore :)

Uncalled travel, lives up to everybody’s expectations, because they don’t give you time for any arrangements and setup (Thankfully, I rescued my wallet from buying never-ending duty-free chocolates for relatives, who never stop asking for them). Anyway, this was again in Singapore (the way they sing in unison, Singaaa-puraaa). Last I witnessed Christmas there, in…

Meraki Pahadi House – Run for Nature!

Travelling is always a good idea. I have been travelling to different places across India and internationally since 2014. Locally, Himachal Pradesh is my personal favourite destination. While Uttarakhand is my native place, I see myself more inclined to Himachal. There’s always a new respite of thought with it. However, just to get a little…

Royal & Romantic: Udaipur

Located within the Thar desert in Rajasthan, surrounded by Aravalli mountain ranges this historic town is an oasis of exquisiteness.

Aurangabad: Forever Agile

It was my love for artistic silk fabric (Paithani) which inspired me to visit a district called Aurangabad in Maharashtra, India. Here I perceived a blend of saga and innovation. I am yet to choose whether to call it a tourist destination or an industrial amalgamation. Paithan, located around 50 km from Aurangabad airport (Chhatrapati…

So between 1st and 16th  February, indulge yourself in the “Surajkund International Crafts Fair”- a carnival of ethnicities, cultures, cuisines, and artisans from all the States…

Dholavira: The Smart City of the Past!

Do you comprehend the poetry of life and admire abstract beauty? Do historic abodes make you feel nostalgic? Would you love driving on one of the best roads? Would you prefer a halt somewhere en route to admire the migratory birds? If your answer is ‘Yes’ to all of the above, then “Dholavira” is well…

Commonly known as Makar Sankranti, it is celebrated as a community festival, transforming the mood into gaiety. A cultural practice manifests itself…

A Rendezvous with Asia’s Best Beach

Nature at its best in a serene atmosphere, happening yet peaceful and spotless… While in the hunt for finding such a destination, Radhanagar beach caught my attention. The lush green canopy of colossal natural skyscrapers along with banana and coconut plantation follows the road leading to a beach curved in a crescent of golden sand….

Manapullikavu

There is a beautiful and aesthetic looking temple just at the outskirts of Palakkad Town, Kerala (India). The entire atmosphere surrounding the temple is so serene that just sitting there for some time makes one feel the sanctity and divinity. The presiding deity is Goddess Bhagavathy, considered to be Lord Siva’s daughter, Bhadrakaali, born out…

This village is a beautiful one with its own tradition and culture. Palakkad is basically an agricultural district. During the times of the rules by various Kings, they felt…
