July 2017 Travel Digest From Instagram

Check out the July 2017 desi Traveler Digest From Instagram There is an old saying imitation is the best form of flattery. So I am not sure should I be happy or should I be angry, when I discovered that not only many people have opened fake desi Traveler blogs/ Facebook and Instagram accounts some of them are even calling their account “ OFFICIAL“, playing on singular plural/underscore etc in the spellings of desi Traveler. But I am very confident that the copycat accounts will always remain Copy Cats. In fact recently on a Facebook discussion, some of the [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

My Pictures From Mothers Day Stories-Mere Paas Maa Hai

Mere Paas Maa Hai – Instagram Photo Series on Mothers Day Like many other things on desi Traveler, this series on Mothers Day is also now too late to see the light of the day. There are many reasons for the delay but the most obvious one is my laziness. Somehow once my momentum goes away for a project I just don’t get the motivation again to make it live.  But in spite of the delay, I am happy to share this small mothers day project that I did on my Instagram with the idea of Celebrating Mothers Day [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

7 day Nature Photo Challenge On Facebook

My Images for 7 day Nature Photo Challenge A few days ago I was invited by fellow traveler and blogger Pooja Bhatt to participate in 7 days Nature Challenge. The rules of the challenge are that you post one new image every day and nominate somebody else to take the challenge further. I was a  bit reluctant to participate in the same as I have joined the  7-day nature challenge earlier also on the invitation of other friends.  But Pooja insisted that I must share my images.  So over a period of 7 days I shared images, but as [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

desi Travel Digest March - Clicking Pictures Capturing Souls

desi Travel Digest March – Photographers Who Create Magic For me, photography is something magical, mystical that gives the photographer immense power. This power is not something negative like the word is normally associated with. But the power photographers command is something very creative that brings out the very best in both the subject as well as the artist, in front of the world that lesser mortals  like me who are tone-deaf equivalent of photography are totally mesmerized by. And look at the images created by these magicians behind the shutter and just say WOW! So dear readers in [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

The Rahi On Road Trip To Kangra in Himachal

#RahiOnRaod Trip  on Instagram Bapu Gandhi said, India lives in Villages, and his words are true even today. In my opinion the best way to see India is still by a road trip and a trip on the Great Indian Railways comes in close second. I like road trips not just for the freedom it offers, but also the interaction one can have with fellow Indians on the road. No other mode of transport gives you the choice to go at your own pace and stop at will. No worries about missing a train or regret of not being [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Although there are some inherent shortcomings in Instagram that I do hope they take care in future. [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]
