Khajuraho Temples Images – Erotic Sculptures

When we talk about Khajuraho, the first thing comes to mind is “Khajuraho temple images”. I have been to Khajuraho with a women travel group. We took an overnight train from Delhi to Khajuraho, which was supposed to reach in morning but it got several hours late due to fog and we reached late so that day we could not explore much. We went for sound and light show in the evening. After it, we had a bonfire at the…

Wordlessly Wednesday

Wordlessly Wednesday

Last year I was in Varanasi and while roaming around in market, I spotted this gentleman. There were 2-3 band people and relatives also accompanying him. He was wearing his wedding attire and going on cycle rickshaw, which is unusual because in India I had always seen groom sitting on horse back or car. It was kind of strange or I can even say funny to spot someone like this. This picture I felt like sharing in these days of…

Mesmerizing Jaswant Thada – Taj of Marwar

I was on the top of Mehrangarh Fort and noticed a beautiful white color structure on the north side of Fort. From its silhouette, I understood it is Jaswant Thada also known as Taj of Marwar. The white color marble structure stands out and highlights to the surrounding reddish-brown rocky hills at the back of it when you see from far. By the time I finished with Mehrangarh Fort, it was already afternoon and sun was at the top. So,…

Sometimes we go too far off places but didn’t go to new places in your own city. I finally went a year back for the first time to Majnu ka Tila. It was convenient to go, I took the metro and got down at Vishwavidhyala station (Vidhansabah is also close to the station)….

Pushkar Camel Fair – Pushkar ka Mela

 I had been to Pushkar few times but I never went during “Pushkar Camel Fair”. This fair falls from Ekadasi to Purnima of the Hindu month of Kartik (Sometime around in the month of November).

Hence we decided why not go to annual Pushkar camel fair. It is…

Few Festivals of India :-)

Few Festivals of India :-)

Our festivals are so much related to the special type of foods, we make or eat from outside. In short, I am writing down whatever comes to my mind right now when I am thinking about festivals. (I keep on adding later also, whenever I remember what I am missing here) I don’t do any religious ceremonies but do follow everything related to food on that particular day 😀  Lohri: Making bonfire and sitting around it, having mugfali (Peanut) +…
