During this pandemic I have no other option than just to joggle my memory regarding the places I visited. The old snaps instantly rekindled my memories. Yeah I am talking about my Ooty visit. Though I was born and brought up in Tamil Nadu, I somewhat missed to visit Ooty while was in my home town. After moving to Delhi only I realised that I should visit Ooty during my next visit to Tamil Nadu. While planning for the trip, I came to know that they were two modes of travel to reach Ooty. One from Coimbatore by road and … Continue reading Memory lane – Ooty
After our Las Vegas visit we proceeded to Baffalo. Since there is no direct flight between Las Vegas to Buffalo, we took a flight to Charlotte and from there we took another flight to Baffalo. From Baffalo we proceeded to Niagara by road and reached Niagra around 3.30 pm. Our hotel was very near to the falls. It was drizzling and climate was so pleasant and we thought that it is the right time to see the falls. Our jaws dropped at the very sight of the falls. Wow it was absolutely stunning. I was not exactly sure what to … Continue reading Mesmerized by Niagara Falls!
We realized our dream of our maiden international trip to USA on 29 Aug 2019. We planned a 12 days trip to visit to Sanfrancisco, Las Angels, Las Vegas, Buffalo, Washington & New York. Our first step was to go to US embassy at New Delhi for the VISA interview. We went there with full of anxiety like school kids who face there first test in the school. But to our surprise we found that the VISA issuing officer was so nice and friendly, when he informed us that ‘your visa is approved’ we felt that as if we touched … Continue reading A maiden trip to USA
While in school, I read lot about Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram and at that time I never imagined that one day I will visit there. Our main aim to visit Ahmedabad was only to see Gandhi’s Sabarmati ashram. When we entered the Ashram we got goose pumps as the very feeling of our standing on the spot where Gandhiji stood once. Gandhiji selected a place on the bank of the river Sabarmati. Gandhi used to remark, “This is the right place for our activities to carry on the search for Truth and develop Fearlessness for on one side are the iron … Continue reading Sabarmati Ashram at Ahmedabad
This is a nostalgic memory of Delhi’s metro and how it changed the life of a common man in Delhi. If you say metro it will certainly bring a pleasant smile on Delhi’s commuters. It is quite natural considering Delhi’s commuters woes before the arrival of Metro. You can easily identify Delhi’s commuters’ ‘mode of travel’ by their appearance. If they are dirty, tired with disheveled hair, looking pale and their dress is full of wrinkles certainly they might have travelled by Delhi Transport Corporation buses (DTC); if they appear pleasant, neat and clean and talk coolly, I am sure … Continue reading Delhi’s Metro
When I decided to visit North-East of India in Apr 2009, I had a lot of apprehensions in my mind due to our pre-conceived notion arising out of adverse media reports about North East. Yet I was so determined to visit as I felt that it was a god sent opportunity. To add fuel to my apprehensions, a bomb blast incident took place at Guwahati just one day prior to our departure. But it never deterred our enthusiasm and we boarded the Air India flight as per the schedule. It was a morning flight from Delhi. Air India served us … Continue reading Trip to North East, India
On 13 Apr 2017 we boarded Duranto train to Bhubaneswar, which was late by two hours. Lunch served at 3 pm and we had a lively talk with co-passengers.

Exactly at 6 pm the sun in red colour appeared in slow motion. It was an awesome sight. After the sun rise we took bath in the sea and proceeded to Konark … Continue reading Pilgrimage to Bhubaneswar, Konark & Puri
