The Floating Palace


Udaipur is often called the Venice of the the east. I haven't visited Venice, but I'd still prefer it to be called the Udaipur of the west! I'll let the pictures of the Jag Niwas Palace at Lake Pichola do the rest of the talking: More photo stories from Udaipur This is post #28 in… Continue reading The Floating Palace

MG Marg at night


One of the things that we found particularly nice about Gangtok, was how clean the city was—despite the extreme weather, the huge influx of tourists, and the logistical challenges of a mountainous terrain. In the three days we spent, the constant rain may have dampened our hopes of seeing the snow-capped Himalayas, but the stone… Continue reading MG Marg at night

Waiting in the cold


It's still early winter and there are some brave ones roaming the streets around without woollens. But we're not taking any chances. As I write this post, sitting snugly in the warm blanket, my mind wanders to our freezing experience in Sikkim last year. At the Tsomgo lake in Sikkim, we rented extra woollens and… Continue reading Waiting in the cold

This post, is number 300… Continue reading Thank you 🙂

I have often found myself judging others Oh, just stop this! Shut the camera and enjoy the food in front of you! But now, show me… Continue reading Temporary

Sunset at Monsoon Palace


As promised yesterday, here's the view we saw atop the Monsoon Palace, Udaipur, Rajasthan. Like I said, neither my words, nor my pictures could do justice to what we saw. This must suffice for now.

Sunset at Sangam


We're in November! The year is fast ending. Now where did this year go? For those who know me, it's been one heck of a roller coaster the past couple of years. And given all that's going on right now, it would be madness to even think about participating in, what the blogosphere calls, the… Continue reading Sunset at Sangam

Happy Deepavali!


As is the tradition in these parts of the world, here's a few Deepavali pictures 🙂 The Daily Post asks us to post something that glows. Nothing better than the glow of festivity, piety, family and lights. Here's wishing you all a very happy Deepavali!
