We eyed the accommodation warily. The choice was either a canvas tipi or a room in the stone-built house, with gaping holes where windows would normally have been. Although no one voiced their concern, we were all thinking the same thing: that neither would afford us much protection from marauding wildlife. With no electricity, no […]

MCLEODGANJ, INDIA: MUSING OVER MY MUSE(S) Breathless and unable to fight the temptation, I surrender. The comfort of rest offered by the rocky ledge and what lies before me is irresistible. I am just a few minutes away from completing Kora, the circular trail around Tsuglagkhang complex. The valley stands before me with arms flung […]

Gurudongmar, India:A tale of handcuffed heartbeats!

My car was whirling on the curvy, rocky highway of NH-31A, the sole connector of Sikkim to the Indian territory. It was a 12 hour ride and as for me, you could connect me to a barrel of scopolamine (drug for motion sickness) but still my vomitus would flow more heavily than rain pouring down […]

People heading for work

WHEN TIME STANDS STILL Are you tired of driving down the dusty roads, tiring treacherous mountain treks, swooshing down the snow laden hills, cold night camping in the woods, watching historical monuments or flirting with disastrous waves? The best alternative is heading to the laid back, coastal village of Alleppey, Kerala in India for a […]

I never mused about a place that inspires me the most until I landed on wesaidgotravel.com few days back and got apprised of the “Inspiration Travel Writing Contest”. I have been to many destinations, had fun, relishing memories, found peace and experienced all sorts of emotions one could expect but never looked them from the […]

“Let’s take one of the sleeper class trains, it’s more economical and culture friendly,” Billy said enthusiastically. “No way, I’m scared! It seems dangerous; I bet criminals ride it. We will probably get robbed while sleeping. Let’s take first class with private rooms and locked doors. I heard it’s much safer for women,” my frightful […]

Tonsured in Tamil Nadu, India

IMG_2183

Tonsured in Tamil Nadu I arrived in Chennai, India, in the southern state of Tamil Nadu, with a head full of curly, brown hair. It was the longest my hair had ever been, falling down to my shoulders in a pyramid of curls, all due to my girlfriend Holly’s move to India. She left the […]

Monsoon Magic in India

Jama Masjid

I have been warned about peacocks going crazy during monsoon season, but on this early June morning, I could not have imagined a louder or stranger sound as the one that awakes me. Soon enough, the door opens, and my host, the beloved grandmother of a dear college friend, urges me to my feet with […]
