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…]

June 2017 Travel Digest Shared by desi Travelers on Instagram

June 2017 Travel Digest – Sourced from Instagram June has been so hot that I canceled many trips to stay indoors, only to be cajoled by Wife jee and kids to take them to hills.  So we were in Kangra and exploring the nearby areas with a focus on India’s first heritage village Pragpur. Kangra is not very cold compared to higher reaches of Himachal but the district has great cultural significance for the development of arts like Kangra School of Miniature Paintings and in Dharamshala and McLeodganj you get to see the snow clad peaks of Dhauldhar Range.

The Joy Of Puja: Because Every Puja is Special Note from desi Traveler: There is Puja festivities everywhere, so I asked our friends to share their Puja Memories from Kolkata and other places.  I have my own fond memories of Puja in Kolkata, going from one Pandal to another trying to figure out what is happening all around me.

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…]
