Starting off my series on my #summertrip  2015 with our first experiences in the jungles of Tadoba.....
“They used to light a torch right on top of that” insisted our guide. “How do you think they climbed up?” I asked, amused at the thought of someone clambering up the smooth pillar without even a hold of any kind. “They must h...

The blog has been silent for so long cause I have been travelling. Am back in town for just a couple of days, and before I leave once again on another journey, here is a post I wrote for the SheThePeople.Tv #everywomanisaleader   #WomenInLeadership  Campaign.... Would love to hear your thoughts...... 
It was about a month back that I was first approached by Shethepeople.tv to be a part of their ‘Women in Leadership’ Campaign. I hesitated to jump in, simply because inspirational writing isn’t really my forte. But then, my t...

My article on +Happytrips H​ on things to do in Fort kochi. 
Narrow roads lined with trees and old houses with flowers on every porch greet you as you enter Fort Kochi. The silence is especially welcome after the bustle of Cochin, or Ernakulam, which is today, one of Kerala’s important cities. Fort Kochi is also a part of Cochin, albeit with a more interesting history, one that still draws visitors to its shores. Once a hub of trade after the ancient port town of Muziris was washed away by a Tsunami, Fort ...

This Asian Koel has been distracting me from writing, all this week. So, while I write the final post in the Sikkim series, let me show you a lucky capture of the bird.. #BIrdsFromMyWindow  
Since the last few weeks, as I have been busy by the comp, writing my Sikkim series, the Asian Koels have been creating a racket! They choose the time I am inspired to write, to call, and I rush with my camera, leaving everyt...

Next on the #Sikkim  series, is the story of a temple to a soldier-saint, high up near the Nathu-la pass. 
A young soldier, carrying supplies to a remote outpost, is lost. It is wartime, and with the bad weather and difficult terrain, it is clear he is no more, but his body isn’t found. This, while a sad occurrence, is not really ...

Next on the #Sikkim  series is our journey into the mountains of the state... This journey was our first of the year, and this monday, looking back, it brightens up my day! 
“Will there be snow?” was the question Samhith asked us over and over again during the months, weeks and days leading to our Sikkim trip. Considering that we made the trip just after Christmas, chances of snow were high. Howe...

My article on the Happy Trips site. 
Nestled in the lower Himalayas, the city of Gangtok has grown over the mountains and in the valleys. Seen from the skies or even from the ropeway, Gangtok shows a colourful façade against the backdrop of the snow-clad mountains. At one time, Gangtok was an important stop on the trade route between British India and Tibet. The Nathu La pass saw a constant stream of traders and travellers come across mountains on either side, bringing not only good...

Finally wrapping up the #Sikkim  series with this post... it is a summary of the entire trip, with links to the individual blog posts in the series, hopefully answering many of the questions I have been asked :D 
Over the last couple of months, I have been writing about our first foray to the east in December 2014, and most of my posts have been about our trip to Sikkim. These posts have generated quite a bit of interest, and I have b...

As I near the end of my #Sikkim  series, here is my post on our visit to the Do-Drul Chorten in #Gangtok  
It was evening, and the light was fading as we arrived at the Do-Drul Chorten (also sometimes spelled as Duddul Choedten) in Gangtok. Samhith was tired, and all he wanted was to get back to the resort, and to his games with h...

I clambered up the last few steps, panting, not as much because of the exertion, as the altitude. At 14,140 ft. above sea level, this was the highest place I had ever been to (and probably ever will). A slight feeling of dizz...

We were at the Rumtek Monastery, and we were enthusiastically discussing Tibetan Buddhism and life in Sikkim, with our guide, Monay. An old man standing by smilingly said something, and our guide laughed and translated – “So ...
