What strikes you the most about this picture? .

To me this pictures boasts of an ideal world. Look at the symmetry of the houses. How they all look alike. All the people of the community living the same life, working equally, earning equally and hence there is no chaos. There is no notion of one being Superior to other. I can only imagine of such world. .

This picture arouses my curiosity so much that I want to jump inside and live a drop of the life of the people that live here, just to experience a lil bit of the ideal world they have created for themselves. .

When I look at this picture I think of the mornings when whole village rushes to the farms while the winds blow ferociously. All the kids going to the same school and hence all of them are part of one big family. And I think about those wintry evenings when tired souls come back home and share the happenings of the day over several cups of tea. And in those talks it won't matter whose terrace or home it is. Because you know at the end all of them are just alike. .

This picture speaks millions to me. And I am short of words to scribble it all. .

Love.
.

I read somewhere that love finds you in most mysterious ways when you are least looking for it. Last year was full of travel and lifetime experiences. But, what makes it more special is that I found someone who changed my life million folds. .

I was busy in my own struggles when this amazing man knocked on the door of my life's chapter on beautiful Christmas eve in the most special place - Barot valley. Place where I went for my first solo trip. It's also the place where my start up took its first steps. Struggles were still there but he filled the space with laughter and smiles. Before I knew it, I fell in love and so did he. .

Mojo truly brought magic to my life. As much as I am nervous, I am equally thrilled to share my life with him. .

This post is to us, to the power that love holds, to that beautiful night when we kissed under the million stars hoping that there would be million others like this. .

Forgive me for not being so active lately as there is so much going on. Mojo and I seek your blessings as we exchange rings this Diwali. Wish us lots and lots of travels in the coming time😙😙😄
.

PS: If I vanish again, it might be because Mojo is after my life as he wanted to keep this news/picture for few more days. In my defence it was a spur of moment thing. 😉

Starting is always difficult. You don't know enough ways to optimize your travel cost and hence you end up spending more than you wanted to. I can say this because I have learnt from my experiences. .

I have been chasing the sunsets from last few years and I can say that I have witnessed some beautiful ones. Like the one in this picture. .

This is for all the souls who want to keep chasing the beautiful sunsets all around the world. Because we all are worth it. In this picture I was amidst mighty Brahmaputra in a ferry that costs only 20 Rs for an hour ride. Who said beautiful things have to be expensive. .

Another year, new faces and with a very different energy, it's now time to begin this season of festivals, starting from this weekend.
.
For many this I-Day long weekend must be full of outstation events, booze and food. But you know what, you don't need to travel to the streets of Paris or the forests of Amazon to complete your "world-tour" bucket list. Sometimes a cup of tea with friends and gathering up with the society gives much more satisfaction.
.
Last year, I didn't realise how people celebrated all these staying away from home. That sense of alienation had already faded the energy which we must have, to spend these occasions here.
.
Eagerly waiting for the calendar to roll over.

This picture reminds me of one of the most beautiful day when the sight was saturated with beautiful colors. Green was all I could see and the clouds overhead felt like cotton cushions. It was no less than fairytale and I am not even exaggerating. I was filled with joy and I felt free, fierce and fearless. .

All of us are burdened by so many things in life. These burdens come in the form of so many faces - to get good grades, promotion, job, if you already have the job then to perform at your job, loans, financial liabilities, health issues and the list goes on. We get bogged down by these burdens, days become gloomy. Nothing seems to work in that moment, not even screaming and crying out loud. .

In those moments of darkness look for a ray of positivity. For me its something like this picture. For you it could be something else; dancing in the rain, sharing it all with a friend, kiss or a hug. But make sure you unburden yourself and set your soul free. At the end the most important thing is to feel light and being able to laugh with an open heart.
.

PS: I will go and drool on this picture for awhile to get the good vibes. .

Since the time I started sharing my solo travel stories I have been getting lots of messages from people around the world telling me how inspiring my journey is to them. How I motivate them to venture out and how happy my stories make them feel. .

And all those messages inspired me in return to travel more. Write better and be consistent in what I am doing. More than anything else I felt more confident. It's a human tendency that knowingly or unknowingly we seek validation of others for the things that we do. And to be very honest all your messages brought huge sense of satisfaction to me. .

But there were so many other messages from women who were helpless and were denied to lead the life in their own way. They were confined by the boundaries drawn by their loved ones. Some were abused physically and verbally who dared to cross those lines. .

I wonder why do we have a stigma around 'solo female traveller'. It's perfectly normal when a male does so but there is outrush of millions of questions and doubts if a female is found travelling solo? Why are we so gender biased? .

For all those people inspired by my journey I hope these aren't just words. That you would be equally inspired if your sister, mother or a girl friend steps up to follow the same journey or even better if you make things easier for her. I still remember my brother dropping me off to the airport when I left for three months long solo trip to the north east. When I look back it is one of the best memories of us. .

I hope for the day when we don't have this need to seek others permission for the things we do. I hope for a better place because we are capable of so much more.

Today I was going through the memory lanes and found this snippet from the diary entry I wrote long back. ----
.
. "Normal day at old Delhi platform

My train was at 9.50 pm and it was only 9.15 pm.
One of the perks of travelling solo for me is to observe people. People you cross paths with for a second or two and you share a teeny tiny part of your life with them. .

I reached platform number 15. It was filled with people and people were filled with thoughts, I can only wonder what their thoughts could be and the stories that lie hidden behind those faces. Few women were lying on the platform floor and sharing their meals along with the laughs. A man in his sixties asking for 'Mixer namkeen' from the snacks corner on the platform. A young man with the cellphone sitting on the platform bench blushing while his fingers were sending love to the other side. A new mother comforting and snuggling her baby while her husband who was holding snacks and water bottle was looking down at his family. Love in his eyes melted a piece of my heart. An old man sitting alone. A kid aged 4-5 flying his imaginary plane while his little sister was watching him curiously. And I was observing everyone else present there.

Train arrived on time and everybody started running. I walked with them. People helping their loved ones to board the train. I got inside the train to share this short journey with few people whom I might never see again. .

At the end this is how life is; we share a part of it with others. Others having different purpose, stories, passions and sometimes we help those whom we love to make their path little easier and some keep on walking slowly without any help. Everybody has their destination to reach, purpose to fulfill. Though the joy of reaching the destination is utmost but the journey is as important as the destination and people we share it with make it special. You never know who might arrive on the next stop to share this journey with you giving you a chance to be part of their story. Maybe a chapter or two in their life.

Let's see what the next stop brings for me..!"

What little I have learnt during my time spent on roads is that travelling is all about breaking the barriers. Then be it crossing the borders of a country, making friends in a far off land, experiencing beautiful cultures or defying the fact that communication needs a common tongue.
.

For instance this particular picture. A Spitian woman resting her head on a foreign woman's shoulder in the most carefree way. Where can one witness sight like this if it weren't about travelling?
.

This sure made me smile. How about you?

#tanitraveltales #girlintheredjacket

After renting our bike from Tabo, Mojo and I decided to do a quick pit stop of 2-3 hours in Dhankar and reach Kaza by the evening which is around 22 Kms drive from Dhankar.
.

Most of the times if not always, planning is just useless when it comes to exploring a place. You never know what place you will reach next, what you will end up seeing or whom you will end up meeting and you absolutely couldn't imagine where you would be heading next. At least this is what happens to me whenever I plan too much. So this time, a small pit stop at Dhankar turned out to be a five hours trek to Dhankar lake and then staying there overnight. .

Dhankar has its own rustic charm untouched by the modern day changes that Kaza has gone through which is only 22kms away from here. Old Dhankar Gompa literally perches on the edge of Razor's blade that defies all logics. .

The village is enclosed by mountains and can be accessed only from South. Due to it's strategic location Dhankar became the capital of Spiti valley.
.

The isolation of Dhankar has made this fortress monastery one of the most significant and unadulterated one where the past and present continue to live together in perfect harmony with nature. .

PS: More about the Spitian architecture in coming posts! Stay tuned.

@Regrann from @thatkanpuriaguy - A Morning in Mathura | Mathura June'2016

I took this during one of my work trips to a drought affected village in Madhya Pradesh last year
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
Last minute arrangements had left me stranded overnight at the Mathura railway station and I made way to the nearby Vishram Ghat in the early morning hours. After a boat ride in Yamuna which looked relatively cleaner than in Delhi where it has turned into a drain, I sauntered about this rather religious town.
➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
This shot triggered an epiphany of sorts I wasn't ready for as I traversed the narrow cobbled pathways plastered with cow dung, amongst the priests clad in surf-excel white dhotis in the shadow of erstwhile magnificent temples and ashrams now reduced to ruins as it has become less and less feasible to restore them to their former glory.
