Collaborative Posts

My blog seems to continue on the 'silent mode' while I am busy with so many things...... On one hand, as I mentioned earlier, I have been travelling quite a lot, on the other hand, I have also been busy writing about things other than travel...... Most interestingly, for the first time, I have been part of two collaborative posts on two different sites.....



My first collaborative post on 'Naming Children' was up on the Pocket Cultures site before I left for Delhi, but I was too busy to write about it here. The post has inputs from people from 13 different countries, each with their own take on naming traditions in their own countries or families.... yours truly is just one of them, so go ahead read the post here or click on the pic below.... Meanwhile, I am now a regular contributor for Pocket Cultures, so you can read more about India and Indian Culture there too...



Now for the second.... For the first time, I am part of the Lonely Planet Blog Carnival. This is the 23rd such carnival, where Lonely Planet featured Bloggers from around the world write on a chosen topic on their own blog, and all such posts are collected and posted on the blog hosting the carnival. This time, the carnival is being hosted by Kiran Keswani, a fellow blogger from India, who writes about Indian markets on this blog, aptly titled "Indian Bazaars'. Of course, the topic this time is 'The Marketplace', and among posts about markets from all over the globe, Kiran features my blog on the Hampi Bazaar. Go ahead and take a look for a virtual tour of markets from around the world! You can read the article here or click on the pic below..


There is a lot more I need to write about, but that will have to wait till I have time to sit down and put all my thoughts down..... and since there is a lot more travel lined up ahead, plus Samhith's vacations which have started today, it looks like May will be a quiet month on the blogfront. Of course, I shall still post photos and articles about happenings as and when I can, so please do keep coming back..... and I shall be back with a bang as soon as I can!

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

Kabini Part 2 - A Boat Ride

The river Kabini is the heart of the Nagarhole National park, and a boat ride on the river is an integral part of the stay at the Kabini River Lodge. The incessant, unseasonal rainfall had marked our stay so far, and heading to the jetty for our boat ride on our second evening at the lodge, we kept our fingers crossed, hoping for clear skies.  The Jetty... at the Kabini River Lodge

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
