Raja Ampat Dive Lodge – Comfort In Lap of Nature Indonesia Before I start my series on my experience Raja Ampat Islands, I want to write about Raja Ampat Dive Resort that was our blissful base during our stay in Raja Ampat Islands Papua, Indonesia.

The Kids Who Stole My Heart On A Goa Beach

Laughter & other lessons learned from kids of Child Rescue Center Goa First came the collective laughter that rose above the rapturing waves crashing on the pristine Gonsua Beach, Majorda in Goa. Then came a few worried yet loving screams,” Wait, don’t go too close, don’t enter the water, let me come “ But the collective laughter had the blessings of the Universe that made the pure laughter attract everybody around. It sure got my attention as I ran towards the source of the collective laughter to contribute to the chorus. If there is anything better than laughing alone  then it is to join [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Sunset in Gurgaon

The Wrong Turn To The Right Sunset   Sometimes the wrong turn can be the right turn, just by chance.  On a recent trip to Chikamagalur where I was shooting Mercedes-Benz for a blogging assignment, I accidentally hit my lens to a tree. Luckily the lens hood too the hit and the main body did not have any damage. I was clicking with same lens for months now without any issue. But today I was alone at home with nothing to do so I thought why not get the rubber ring on the lens replaced as it has become [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]

Experiential Travel in Jordan

Jordan Travel Experiences Evolution is the essence of life and those who do not evolve join dinosaurs. We travelers too continue to evolve over our journeys, for there is no better teacher than travel.

  March 2015 calendar desktop wallpaper: The  Most Magical Swimming pool Dear readers, let us welcome , a month that brought shivers down my spine even as the mercury rose to torturing thirties and occasionally flirting with forties.  But the shivers down the spine had nothing to do with weather; my shivers were due to the exam season.

Sunset over Chinese Fishing Nets Cochin

Photographing Sunset in Fort Kochi behind Chinese Fishing Nets Clichéd it may sound, but a visit to Fort Kochi in Cochin, Kerala is incomplete without clicking a picture of Sunset behind the Chinese Fishing nets. For us visitors ( tourists, travelers take your pick), it is a photo opportunity but for the fishermen of Kerala, it is a lot of hard work. I am not sure exactly when the Chinese fishing nets came to India and when they became ubiquitous on the Cochin Skyline. Today they are kind of symbol of your visit to Fort Kochi in Kerala and every [Continue Reading By Clicking Here…]
