When Rudyard Kipling wrote his lovely little story featuring a man cub and wolves and a tiger and a hypnotising snake, he was actually talking about the Kanha National Park. Situated in the state of Madhya Pradesh, right in the heart of India. It’s a vast stretch of forest housing tigers, sloth bears, deer, monkeys and birds. However, there were no hypnotising pythons with jaws … Continue reading Destination: Jungle Book
“The darkest nights produce the brightest stars.” Said John Green once. Night time has a different definition for everyone. For some, it is the end of the day, lights out, but for some others, it is the time they come alive. Alternatively, not everyone has night at the same time so that makes the issue even more twisted. The concept of ‘night’ maybe debated among us … Continue reading Into The Night!
Latitudes and longitudes are a prime(pun intended:)) example of the depth of human imagination. The other being imaginary numbers which are quite a waste of time. The GMT timezone is one which determines the clock hands of the entire world. And what’s impressive is that wheels of time are determined by nothing but a figment of human imagination, aka the Prime Meridian. It’s quite an … Continue reading Prime Time London!
‘Light as a feather, stiff as a board. One wrong step, and you’ll end up a toad.’ Hehe. Talk of twisting quotes to one’s whim. But hey, it’s spooky season. Things tend to twist around a bit. So without further a-boo(‘ado’ in its spooky version), here’s presenting an absolute rollercoaster of spooks, as told by people with experience. Destination: India. Now, in India, Halloween is a rather nascent trend. … Continue reading Halloween Havens of India
“Always be yourself unless you can be a bird. Then always be a bird.” I came across this quote on a sticker in an online gift shop and let me tell you that my ears have never fallen upon wiser words. Birds are literally one of the most unique creations ever. I mean, here you’ve got a living being that can fly, build, sing, dance, warn … Continue reading Bird Diaries
Here’s some food for imagination: What if dinosaurs never went extinct? I mean, that would be a world where you’re on a nice little road trip down a winding, forested hill and suddenly, instead of a deer crossing the road, there’s a full grown Triceratops trotting across tar to the other side. Also, there would be no chance of scuba diving if our reptilian predecessors … Continue reading Natural History Museum, London
Robin Williams once said, “There’s a world out there. Open a window, and it’s there.“ One unsung aspect while travelling the world is the window seat. Sitting by the window in a moving vehicle adds a whole new depth to the journey. It shows a glimpse of a network, be it by road or by sea or even by air, which connects the world and gives … Continue reading The Window Seat
Tall towers- √ Shopping Malls- √ Street food- √ Dangling restaurants in the air? Also check(√) It’s the sort of city where you’ve got it all, from nature to human progress, welcome to Kuala Lumpur. This city was one which got me interested right from the time we landed. Right from the airport. Now, to be very honest, I’m not one to eat on a plane, … Continue reading The K.L Contrast
‘A museum is a place where one should lose one’s head.’ Said Renzo Piano once. And then he went and built The Shard. In truth, he was talking about Versailles or the French Revolution Section of any museum, where more than one person lost their head but right here, right now, we’re gonna cross the Channel and take the Tube to Tottenham Court Road and … Continue reading London In Museums!!!! Part 1
Bay-bay, bay-bay, bay-bay, OOHHH! Said Justin Bieber once. All along, we thought it was a love song, but actually, it was an ode to the bays of the world. Hehe. Well, talking of bays, here’s my own ode to a certain bay. Namely the Ha Long Bay. Now, before we get to the actual bay, let’s get to the contents page. This post ain’ just … Continue reading BayWatch! Ha Long Bay
