This post is written as a part of Indispire Edition # 175 – Share about any place that you would love to revisit. What makes the place special? #TimeToRevisit From a very young age, I have been passionate about travelling with a list of many dream destinations. The love for travelling comes from my army background and frequent transfers. The place that topped the list of my dream destinations is Paris. So it was a dream come true when in 2008, my dad said that we will go on a holiday to Paris. I was ecstatic and on Cloud Nine. … Continue reading A Place to Revisit!

Narmada Ghat, Omkareshwar

Living in a city takes you away from the beauty and grandeur of nature and makes you long for the serenity and peace that only nature can provide. We were on the way to Omkareshwar to see the Jyotiringa there. Unfortunately, we could not see it due to the Kumbh Mela Rush. However, on the way we stopped at the beautiful Narmada Ghat. A very serene and beautiful spot with clean river water and relatively clean Ghat(river bank). Pictures of the beautiful spot: Continue reading Narmada Ghat, Omkareshwar

Taj Mahal – a painting in the sky!

We have all heard about the beauty of the Taj Mahal, but we can only understand the perfect beauty when we actually see the Taj Mahal. Such technical excellence in those times is absolutely astounding. We took a trip to Agra in the month of March. The logical order of starting the Agra trip is to start with a visit to the Agra Fort and Taj Mahal after that. This is the entrance to the Taj Mahal. When you come close to the entrance gate, this is the first view of the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal is right outside … Continue reading Taj Mahal – a painting in the sky!

Tea Center, Mumbai

I am an Indian and I love my tea. My morning starts with tea and sometimes ends with it too. I can have tea at anytime of the day. It is my companion in happiness, sadness, excitement, stress, for cooling off after a fight or after a client has driven me to the edge. My cup of tea is what I can’t do without most. I have been in Mumbai for many years but had never heard of this place, until one day I was roaming around in Churchgate and saw this sign outside a cafe – the sign said … Continue reading Tea Center, Mumbai

Ghatkopar’s Khau Galli – A Gastronomer’s Delight

I had heard a lot about Ghatkopar’s Khau Galli(Food Street) from my friends and colleagues. Ghatkopar is a suburb of Mumbai. I had heard that you get atleast 25 different types of Dosas there and they are a must try. i had been longing to go since a long time. On Friday, a friend and I made an impromptu plan to go there. We reached there at about 9 p.m. We were just roaming around and wondering where to start. The food there is all vegetarian street food and it is amazingly clean there and the taste of street food … Continue reading Ghatkopar’s Khau Galli – A Gastronomer’s Delight

Amsterdam – The City of my Dreams

I totally love travelling. It’s like my lifeblood. If I don’t travel to someplace after 6-7 months, I start getting restless, irritated and distracted. If I am strapped for a time, even a weekend trip is enough for the time being. I have visited different countries too. The city I have loved the most and still love the most is Amsterdam. I could happily settle there for a lifetime. My fascination with Amsterdam started when I read The Diary of Anne Frank. MY heart went out to her story and I wanted to see the place where she had hidden … Continue reading Amsterdam – The City of my Dreams

Lufthansa A380 – The dawn of a new era in Indian Aviation

I love the feeling of being in the air, amidst clouds floating around like soft cotton wool, looking at the earth from the sky, seeing huge seas passing by from the top is an experience that should not be missed. I love all of this and even more about flying. I would forget my fear of heights in a plane and look down and around and enjoy the sights like a kid who is seeing different facets of the world for the first time. But there was always something that lent a slightly bitter touch to my near perfect experience … Continue reading Lufthansa A380 – The dawn of a new era in Indian Aviation
