When desi Traveler Met Real Solo Traveler

What is the meaning of Solo Traveler ?? Boy, am I going to get in trouble for writing this? Already I got into some rough waters when I came out of closet and informed to the world that I am an MBBS MD traveler. Irrespective of what you label your travel as my only point is that travel for the joy of it, for the discoveries that you will made both to the lands you travel and the person you are when you are on the road whether alone or with friends. Those who travel are already awesome in my [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Let us spread some positive news and actions: SoCh

An Evening well spent: SoCh a breeze of positivism We are so used to hearing all kind of negative news, that anything good, positive is totally lost in the cacophony of negativity around us. But there are people around us who are actively and structurally working to make sure we do not forget that there is hope and love to be spread around us and there are people who are already doing it without anybody knowing much about it.

Hyderabad Zoo - Famous for Tigers and other animals

A Family Picnic at Hyderabad Zoo Park When I came back from Tadoba National Park in Maharashtra, the kids were first very happy to see the pictures and Video of Tigers.

Freedom Ride- Bicycles For Freedom

As I have written in past philanthropy  in India normally means going to temple to donate soiled currency notes or install fans on the ceilings of Dharam Shala in a  holy town like Benaras. Some more adventurous ones will get a bench installed in a park with the names of their seven generations painted on bench to forever kiss the bottoms of the people using the bench.(Why do people do that to their ancestors?) Some companies have  a robust CSR or corporate social responsibility initiative which in many cases is just an annual photo op kind of event.
