Varanasi is a city which has always fascinated me, and I have been fortunate enough to visit it twice. The first time I was a school kid, and my memories are vague, but the second time, which was about two years back, I spent 10 memorable days there while my in-laws performed all conceivable rituals and prayers. I came back so full of information and enthusiasm, that I wrote 16 posts on the trip, and finally ended up making a separate blog for all of them.
Once I was through with it, this blog was left forgotten and never updated, since I had nothing to add! However, I have been surprised by the slow, but steady response this blog has received over the last two years. People have not just been visiting the blog, they also leave comments, and mostly write to me asking for clarifications or telling me about their experience. A few people, in fact, came back to tell me that my blog had helped them plan and execute their trip. For a blogger, there is nothing more satisfying, wouldn't you agree?
Well, moving on, having nothing to write about, I have recently started looking at my other blogs and have been trying to update them or bring something new to each one of them. The first one I have looked at and made some changes in, is my Kashi Yatra blog.
Many of you are recent visitors to my blog, and may not have seen my Kashi blogs. Please head on to Kashi Yatra and take a look.
For those who have already seen it, there are a few changes - the most important being an eBook! Yes, I have compiled the blog posts into a eBook in Pdf format, and you can download it and read it at your leisure. This feature has been added mainly for people like my mother and mother-in-law who love to read about temples and pilgrimages, but are not comfortable with computers and ask me to take printouts of interesting things so that they too can read and enjoy them
So go ahead and take a look. And please tell me what you think.........
