A good looking Sardar !

We went to a meeting in Ashok Vihar in the morning. While getting back, somewhere in Rajouri Garden, I clicked this young good looking Sardar doing something that he should not !!! Cellphones are a rage and it almost seems as though, we cannot live without them ! Just 15 years back, they weren’t ubiquitous … Read more A good looking Sardar !

Third time lucky!!

Yesterday we reached Thiruvananthapuram around 1.30 pm and took a taxi to our hotel, Swades My Home. The first thing that struck us was, Thiruvananthapuram seemed to be in some sort of time wrap … the roads were barely two lane and lots of potholes dotted the entire distance.

Postcards from Vadodara to Pune – Day 3

Bhatinda !!

Finally after a really long gap, we are on a short trip again for ShikshaDaan. We left from Gurgaon around 10 and reached Bhatinda at 3.30 pm.

What would we do … Read more Bhatinda !!

Driving all day …. Reaching nowhere !

We started from Manish’s place at 11 am and were hoping to be home at Hyderabad before 6 easily. At 12.20 we had covered about 70 Kms and heard a “pop” like sound, and thought we must have gone over some cardboard piece… A few minutes later we heard a flapping sound and realised it … Read more Driving all day ….
