Hello there. And happy New Year. With 2018 rolling in, I am about to complete a year of blogging. I remember posting my first blog sometime in the beginning of Jan. So what did I achieve this year? I am inclined to say nothing. But that is more driven by the disappointment I faced rather than a practical retrospection. Well, to be fair, it did disappoint me. My blog gets very few daily visitors, my methods are inefficient and my information is not as useful to people as I had hoped it would be. But surprisingly I am not discouraged. If anything I am more driven than before.complete article

Yarada Beach

I never imagined Visakhapatnam as a holiday destination. Despite having a vast coastal line, it was after all an industrial city. However someone used the word beautiful to describe the city and I was intrigued. I had to see it for myself. What did I discover? It is indeed beautiful. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a city with its vehicles and tall buildings and noisy crowd. But the beauty of that flawlessly blue water splashing continuously against the roughed up brown rocks is undeniable. And being a city only adds delicious and authentic local food to the list of attraction.complete article

Agonda Beach

Growing up in India, the idea of Goa gets introduced to us much before we actually start traveling or at least start traveling as an adult. The dream of Goa lives in every teenager’s heart in our school days and even afterwards, until we finally make plans for that perfect holiday and explore those beautiful beaches. But that first plan can be overwhelming. Given that there’s a whole state to explore and those movies that enticed us in the first place didn’t really provide us with a roadmap for perfect location, a lot of researches need to be done before heading there for the first time. Hope this helps as a guide for the people planning their first trip to Goa...complete article

View from Tunganath

We are always in lookout for something new, something unexplored. There is a constant desire to unfold a mystery or discover something hidden. Probably it’s driven by the same thirst that took our ancestors all around the world. But sometimes on your quest, you stumble upon a place so innocent, so beautiful that you wish it was never discovered. The magic of the place lies in its secrecy itself. And that’s how Chopta made me feel...complete article

Hathi Mahal The boy sat in a bright orange shirt amongst the monotonous grey rocky walls of the faded palace. He hung his legs from the edge of the roof and sang on top of his voice. The palace was once called “Hathi Mahal”, or maybe it’s the name that people remembered. It had lost all its colours a long ago and now just stood like a pile of rocks amongst the aged trees and new born grasses. The land around stretched for miles only with different shades of greeneries. The palace stood alone like a lonely old man, tired for so long and yet surviving through another page of history. And the boy? The boy was contradiction to this whole image. He was bright and young, shining in the afternoon’s soft sunlight. And yet his voice vibrating through the empty landscapes, somehow captured the same essence as only a lonely old palace could bring out. His voice reflected the solace of eternity.complete article
