Dholavira – 3500 BCE

I picked this article about the fascinating ruins of Dholavira from the TOI e-paper, a few days back. While presenting the budget, our Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said that five archaeological sites will be developed as “iconic” destinations. These five sites are – Rakhigarhi, Hastinapur, Shivsagar, Dholavira and Adichaunallur. For […]

Delhi Pics ..

In the last two days we have been out in Delhi and Noida. We went by road and by metro. Sharing a few ¬†pictures that I clicked of interesting buildings, the traffic and the wonderful Qutub Minar. As I said to my friend Aneesha .. I cannot ever leave Delhi. […]
