Nameri

Nameri might not be a popular tourist destination, but it is well known to most bird lovers. This place houses many local and migratory birds, which attracts tourists and often photographers to this place throughout the season. I wasn’t fortunate enough to spot many birds during my stay, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this place and finding it absolutely worth it.complete article

En route to Nameri from Balipara

Why Nameri? I am not sure. It just felt right. When I started planning this trip, my first trip to north-east India, I was overwhelmed by the sudden realization of how vast it is. I had 10 days in my hand and there were precisely 7 states to consider. So like everyone else, I went with order of popularity. First there was Meghalaya, with the most popular name Shillong and other more beautiful destinations like Cherapunjee, Dawki etc. But I rejected Meghalaya considering the huge crowd at Shillong during this time of year. Next in line was Arunachal. But I found Tawang too cold for my taste and hence had to drop this route as well. At that point I thought of focussing solely on Assam, which meant tea-gardens and forests. With that in mind and factoring in my special interest towards forests, Nameri felt like the most convenient and desirable choice. And so I started my north-east trip with a visit to Nameri National Park.complete article

Mulshi Dam

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
