Mindless Behavior – Mindless Pictures – Why

Mindless Behavior – Mindless Pictures – Why

I had seen these kind poses at many historic monuments. This mindless behavior of tourists is so disgusting. People climb on statues or any other structure or object because they want a “Wow” picture. Most of the structures are centuries old and abusing them further will create more damage. This is totally mindless behaviour to take mindless pictures. Do we climb or misuse on our precious things are this???? No….. Then why this behavior with our heritage. Can’t we get…

Wordlessly Wednesday – Reason

Wordlessly Wednesday – Reason

There are some rituals people follow as they had seen their elders doing but they don’t know what is the meaning, reason behind. This was a procession of religious nature to the local temple, women were carrying “Kalas” on their head for offering to God. I have not seen any man carrying “kalash”. Now the question is…… Is this a privilege for women to carry “Kalash”? Or They have to do this as a duty because they are women? Or…

Old Delhi food – Don’t count Calories

Old Delhi food – Don’t count Calories

I am fascinated with the food they serve in old Delhi(Purani Dilli). The feel and culture of Chandani Chowk/Old Delhi is very different from the New Delhi, same goes for the old delhi food. Initially when I started going there for food, I use to go to “Karim’s or Al-Jawahar”. Over the years after interacting with people who were frequent visitors and exploring on my own, I realized that food is much more interesting and tasty in smaller shops. Here…

When we reached the area and noticed there was no one except the gate keeper. He…

Control anger before it controls you

Control anger before it controls you

In our ancient Indian text, human emotions or moods were explained with “Navarasa” i.e. 9 emotions. One of the emotion is Raudra or Anger, which can lead us to unhappiness, conflict and if it gets out of control then it leads to the problem in our life or turns destructive. It doesn’t mean that we should never get angry, no…. it is normal and to an extent, it’s a normal emotion. We are human so, it is natural to be…

My Kerala Itinerary

My Kerala Itinerary

Here is my Kerala itinerary. We spent 10 days and visited many interesting places but I feel there are many more places, which I missed or in some places, we spend very less time. We traveled from Delhi to Cochin by air and then we hired a cab for the complete trip as I was traveling with my parents. Tips when traveling with elderly parents If you are on the budget then trains and buses have good connectivity to all parts…

Kovalam beach & Trivandrum – The Capital of Kerala

We started from Thekkady after breakfast and reached Trivandrum by afternoon. It took us more or less 4 hours. Drive was smooth and there was not much traffic on the way. After a relaxing & fresh up in the hotel, we started for Kovalam beach, which is around half an hour from Trivandrum. While we were driving, our driver suggested to visit Poovar also and so we took a detour. There was a small jetty for boat and from where…
