Ladakh - Planning The Trip

Over 2000 Km by road, in around 10 days. Stunning landscapes, wonderful people. That sums up our Ladakh trip. But how did it actually work? How did we make it happen? Read on to find out!  Leh, the capital of Ladakh , is accessible by air and road. Flying into Leh is the easiest, and time-saving option, while the road is the time consuming one, but with the added advantage of driving past some of the most beautiful landscapes in our country. Each option has much to recommend it, and we chose the road for just one reason – altitude sickness. Altitude sickness was one of my biggest concerns, since I suffer from motion-sickness. Yes, I do travel a lot, but that is despite my condition, and, over the years, have learnt how to handle it. I struggled with it when we visited Nathu-La in Sikkim, and wondered if I would be able to manage a week at the even higher altitudes that we would encounter in Ladakh. This was the reason we stuck to a basic plan, of only 9 days in Ladakh, though we

The Junior Wanderer

Samhith has been taking up quite a lot of space on my blog recently.... After all, my life does revolve around him and his activities.....He is the main reason I am at home and have so much time and matter to blog! Well, of late, I have been feeling that it is time to give him his own space, at least on the WWW and allow him to express himself. As of now, he has the least inclination to write anything himself, but then he is just six and a half, and has just about learnt to write......But he loves seeing his name and his work on my blog, and loves all your comments and encouraging words. He knows most of your names, at least your screen ones, and asks about some of you regularly...... 

 Anyway, I have finally decided to start a separate blog just for him and his doings.... As of now, I shall be doing all the writing, and simply putting up his work...... mostly as an encouragement for his creativity.... and an effort to make him sit in one place for at least a little while....  I have transferred some of my posts about him to the new blog... which is also on blogger, by the way......

The first new post on the blog is up, so please do head over and take a look. He isn't really happy with the title, but we have been unable to think of a better one..... We have thus arrived at a compromise - the title stays till we think of a better one....

So, head over to The Junior Wanderer and take a look. Please do leave your comments, and tell us what you think......

  3. A space for Samhith..Thats cool. Looks like he wants an identity of his own and hence the dislike for the junior title. Though its a fact.

    Liked the new template and it goes well with your header pic.

  4. Hi Anu
    Nice work there. A mother when she is with the kid spending quality time cannot be substituted with any thing else. I did the same like you.and when my son was in 6th standard I started working , that too working at my pace and convenience.. Looking back I feel I have given my best and the results are also good.

  6. @Usha: thanks...... he just doesnt like the name, and insists on saying that its not 'his'blog, but 'mine'.

    @shyamgovind: thanks a lot.....hes certainly the first to have a blog, or even know what one is..... but i have told him that he can do it himself only when hes older..... at least old enough for him to understand the pitfalls....

    @jaysree: thanks a lot....and u have hit the nail on the head... he doesnt want it to be too associated with me..... but i have tried to explain to him that as of now his blog can only be connected to mine... he needs to grow a bit older for him to have his 'own' blog....glad u liked the template...

    @chitra: thanks a lot..... i hope when the time comes, i can look back with the same satisfaction.. how old is your son now????

    @kitchen sinks: thanks a lot!

The Havelis of Bikaner - A Photo Post

The lanes are narrow , twisting and turning amidst buildings old and new. Crumbling old structures with intricate workmanship stand side by side with art deco buildings, and more modern constructions, which follow no particular style. Autos, bicycles, motorcycles and vans rush past, blowing their horns as loudly as possible, while cows saunter past peacefully, completely unaffected by the noise. In the midst of all this chaos, children play by the side, and women go about their chores, as we explore these by-lanes of Bikaner, and its beautiful Havelis. Facade of one of the Rampuria Havelis

Bhedaghat - Home of the 81 Yoginis

The Narmada flows down the mountains , carving out a path for herself as she makes her way down to the plains of Central India. She cascades from the rocks, her fine spray making it appear as if billows of smoke (dhuan) arise from the flowing streams of water (dhaar), giving it the name Dhuandhar. Dhuandhar Falls The force of her flow creates a gorge , smoothening and carving out the rocks into fantastic shapes, the pure white of the rocks standing starkly against the shades of the water. It is a joy to cruise down the river in a boat, seeing the natural contours created by the river, now famous as the Marble Rocks. We are at Bhedaghat, located on the banks of the Narmada near Jabalpur, where thousands of visitors turn up to see these natural landscapes, creations of the sacred Narmada, and pay obeisance to her. However, to me, the most interesting thing about Bhedaghat, isn’t the falls or the rocks, or even the river. What makes Bhedaghat special is t

Kabini Part 3 - After the Rains

Visiting Kabini in peak summer, we hadn’t bargained for the rains, which dominated our three days at the Lodge. While animal sightings were understandably lesser than usual, seeing the forest in the rain was an interesting experience in its own way. However, as we headed back into the forest for our second and third safaris, we hoped the rains would let up, and allow us to see more animals! Winding jungle paths
