Ghungroo – The Sounds of Yore: Delhi’s First Dinner Theatre

Delhi, the capital of India, is a unique city with rich heritage and culture. Also known as the heart of India, it is home to people from all over the country and therefore, the culture of all the states of India can been seen here.

Recently, I got an invitation by Rudra Experiences Pvt Ltd to attend Delhi’s first Dinner Theatre – ‘Ghungroo – The Sounds of Yore’.

The artists, through their dance performances, narrated Delhi’s past glory and took the audience to the bygone days.
Starting from the first documented ruler of Delhi, Prithwi Raj Chauhan, tracing the journey of Bhakti Movement through Sufism, followed by stylised form of Kathak for the Mughal Courts, Tarana, ending in Bollywood, it showcases the history and spirit of Delhi, through dance, all in an hour’s time.

The chefs used traditional recipes, researched over centuries, tested in the Royal Kitchens, slow cooked, delicately spiced, with subtle aromas and served the way it was meant to be: straight from fire.

Exhibition Of Japanese Dolls In Delhi

What comes to your mind when you think of Japan ? For me, it is their rich culture and tradition. Thanks to the Japan Foundation, I completely enjoyed their recently concluded exhibition titled “The Doll of Japan” in Delhi.

Hundreds of dolls as well as paintings and ceramics were displayed in the exhibition. Since ancient times, dolls have been a part of everyday life in Japan. The dolls reflect the customs and traditions of Japan and its people.

All the images were taken with a Mi4 mobile phone.

Fly Over Mysterious Nazca Lines In Peru

Fly over the mysterious Nazca Lines in Peru – An Experience to Cherish Forever!

Peru offers a wide spectrum of opportunities for the travellers, right from sight-seeing to gastronomy, everything is magnificent and enticing. It is a country blessed with rich culture, mesmerizing beauty and breathtaking adventure sites. Machu Picchu is one of the major highlights of the trip of South America but there is much more to explore in Peru beyond this place.

Tourists can enjoy a boat ride in Lake Titicaca, the highest navigable lake in the world; enjoy a fancy picnic in the middle of the dessert in Paracas, under the spectacular star-filled sky; exploring the mysteries of the Nazca Lines, tracings of mysteriously preserved drawings in the desert sand; visit the Colca and Cotahuasi Canyons, the deepest canyons in the world; fishing piranhas in the Amazon River, the mightiest river in the world; or experience the modern lifestyle sightseeing in the streets of Lima, the only capital in South America facing the Pacific Ocean. The uniqueness in the landscape, the people and the rich experience here makes Peru one of the most extra-ordinary destinations to visit.

Nazca Lines is amongst the top 10 places to visit in Peru. The Nazca Lines were declared a World Heritage Site in 1994. Find out how you can make the most out of this experience.

Nazca Lines were drawn on the surface between the period 550 – 600 A.D. These are the greatest known archaeology’s enigma owing to its size, continuity, nature and quality. Geographers have depicted them to be the living creatures, imaginary beings, stylized plants and also many kilometres long geometric figures. These lines are associated with some astronomical functions. These images on the ground are so big in size that the best way to get a full view of them is overflying them.

Flying over Nazca Lines leave all the tourists spellbound as they glare at the perfect shapes of a spider, a lizard, different kinds of birds like humming birds, sea birds, a monkey, a whale and even spot the design of powerful Andean Condor. The planes that are used to take tourists fly over Nazca are of the optimum standard. All the airplanes can accommodate 4-12 passengers + 1 pilot + 1 copilot. The tour departs from the Maria Reiche Airport that is located in Nazca itself. All year round, the flights are scheduled daily, although they are subjected to weather conditions. Nazca Lines are surely one of the most impressive and prevailing mysteries of the Peruvian history and it would be surely an experience to cherish for your lifetime if given a chance to fly over them.

You can reach Nazca by bus from Pisco and Lima. The bus journey from Pisco takes about 3.30 hours and from Lima it takes about 6 hours to reach Nazca. You can even take regular daily flights via LC Perú Lima – Pisco – Lima and continue with your journey. During the peak season starting from June to September the tour must be booked two weeks prior to the travel date to get confirmed seats.

Review – Why I Fell In Love With This Backpack ?

2

 

If you are a true traveler at heart, you know how important the travel accessories are. The right accessories can make your journey smooth as well as memorable. And I never compromise with the brand.

I love ‘Wrangler’ products and have been using them for the past two years. Here, I am reviewing a backpack (they call it bikepack), which I recently purchased. Eye-catching design, excellent features and attractive price propelled me to buy this product.

Enough space to hold a number of items, from a DSLR to folded umbrella. This is one perfect backpack and I would say every traveler must have it.

Features: Easily adjustable shoulder strap, padded laptop compartment, 3D mesh cushion at back, top ‘W’ switch, organizer, raincover, coated water-resistant fabric, mobile pouch on strap, multiple compartment and bottle holder on sides

I bought it just for INR 2,000/- (USD 29). If you ask me, I would rate this backpack 9 out of 10 🙂

P.S: This is a genuine review, not asked by the company.

Why I Love Music Festivals

IMG_20151128_171450

I love music. Well, I think we all do! And I want to attend all music festivals across the world. However, that seems a little difficult:) But I was fortunate to attend Bacardi NH7 weekender recently, where several famous bands and musicians performed. And Yes, it was Spectacular.

Being part of a music festival is a different experience than attending a concert. Several famous and not so famous groups perform in a festival. Colorful stalls, uncles & aunties, little kids, college students and sometimes booze (Yay!) make such festivals memorable, at least for me !!! Here are some snaps which I clicked during the event. 🙂
