Visiting Kutch and why Bachchan ji is right!

Kutch is a beautiful blend of colourful textiles, distinct artisans & their villages, gorgeous palaces & forts, vast countryside swathes, the great white Rann/salt desert, and of course Amitabh Bachchan ji’s endorsements. Kutch is all that and more.  It took me three visits to understand why they say ‘’Kutch nahi dekha toh kuch nahi dekha’’. […]

Chadva Rakhal – Kutch beyond the White Rann!

It was pitch dark and freezing cold that morning. As we drove through the desi and pardesi bavad trees, I spotted a caution sign by the road that read ‘leopard crossing’ (oooohhh).

We see it in movies all the time, we read about it in novels, poems, childhood literature and architecture lessons. Remember that street seller who used to sell Taj Mahal posters near beaches and parks? How about the Taj Mahal image on the cover page of our notebooks?

The other side of Goa

I’ve heard how people fall in love with Goa. I’ve heard and read a few old stories in which foreigners burnt their passports to stay back in Goa; stories of how they found their spiritual path in this place. Stories of how Goa was part of the earliest hippie trails, and how the RV culture […]

There are books written, movies made and poems sung about this beautiful Romantic city of Rome. But for me, it was not an Eat pray love story in Rome.Guess it was not my cup of tea. I didn’t feel like staying there for more than two days. It was late April and was already full of tourists […]
