The 232 year old Denmark Tavern opens it's doors again and this time with bag full of memories and stories to share. This Sunday, a quick plan of my friend and myself made us drop by this huge structure and witness it's galore wide open. Although Serampore is a historical town, hardly any remembered the original name and function of the then ruined building. Simon Rastén, the historian from the National Museum of Denmark rightly said that it was almost like a detective work to search for information in the archives and later decided to restore and reuse the same, all over again. Restoration done by the experts from the National Museum of Denmark and Mr. Manish Chakraborti have resulted in such a remarkable conservation of history and more. Promoted by the Department of Tourism, West Bengal the Denmark Tavern is winged by a heritage cafe whose interior is inspired the The Indian Coffee House maintainted by The PARK,Kolkata and the Flurys. This happens to be a very informative place which takes you down the memory lane of long lost past of the colonies. A Sunday afternoon stroll and a quality time with friends and family in about the same is surely recommended. Congratulations Serampore! #thedanishtavern #serampore #heritagecity #thepark #flurys #resorts #heritagestays #greattime #photowalks #withfriends #greatambience #18thcentury #danishcoloniesinindia #tripotocommunity #nationalgeographichannel #nationalgeographicindia #culturegully #culturvation #indianhistory #restoration #theculturegully #wbtourism #westbengaltourism #bhraman

A formidable military commander and an unparalleled administrator, he boasted of fearsome fighting capabilities and a fiercely loyal backing of powerful armies and slaves. It was Shams ud-Din Iltutmish who laid a strong foundation of the sultanate in the Indian subcontinent. Having captured Multan and Bengal from respective rulers, he further expanded his domain  by attacking  Hindu lands, conquering the fort of Ranathambhore, the lands of Gwalior and the fort of Mandur. He was instrumental in establishing the slave dynasty and expansion of Islam in an otherwise a Hindu land. [On the personal front, he remained a tender-hearted father when it came to his children upon whom he doted and lavished immense affection while attempting to fulfill all their demands and wishes as best as he could. Had he been able to foresee the future, he would have been shocked and appalled at how his progeny would butcher each other after his death.] . . . . . . . . . . #SoDelhi #Delhigram #DforDelhi #_soidelhi #_soi #delhi_diaries #dd_delhi #delhi_igers #MyPixelDiary #theheritagephotographyclub #budpoi #delhiwale #WahhDelhi #WahhIndia #delhiby #olddelhi #dildilli #unzipdelhi #zonestreet #storiesofindia  #culturvation #indiaclicks #qutub #qutubcomplex #mycity #culture #history #theculturegully ##saddidilli #incredibleindia

🌸 When you educate a Girl, you educate a Nation. Taken this photo from a tea estate creche in Malakkapara to Valapara route. It was a herd of Gaurs dragged us to this location. The private property road lead us to a beautiful place with small nursery. While we were engaged in clicking the tea plantation pics we have noticed some kids snooping through gate of the nursery. It was the begining. We seek the permission of the old lady who is the one take caring the kids. Most of the kids from North east states of India. Their parents work for these tea plantaions. I realized that these kids lack the schooling or basic education. They have to go to miles away to get the schooling and for these kids teaching in native language make the studies further diffcult or very hard to learn. - - - - - - - - - - #theIMAGED #artofvisuals #global_hotshotz #passionpassport #exploretocreate #CreateExplore #awesome_earthpix #feedbacknation #beautifuldestinations #exklusive_shot #visualsoflife #visualsofearth #moodygramkerala #moodygramkerala #instagood #thrissurtown #modernoutdoors #igmasters #AGameofTones #illgrammers #CreateCommune #travel #_hpics #keralaportfolio #tamilnadudiaries @canonme @canon_photos @canonindia_official #tajmahal #love @indian.photography @photographers.of.india @india_everyday @india.clicks @india_gram @india_ig @stories.of.india @colours.of_india @india @colours.of.india @moodygram__kerala @moodygram_kerala @kerala_godsowncountry @keralatourism @kerala_gram @vsco.kerala.co @kerala_360 #moodygrams #travelrealindia @travelrealindia @asia_photo_magazine @imperial.india @beautiful_diaries @stories.india @visualsofasia @theindianroute @india_tourism_ @photographers__of__india @thrissurgram @_keralagram_ @keralaphotos

I love my subcontinental heritage!! We have so many art forms that showcase a living heritage of approx.8000yrs, that it is possible to pick and choose from this varied bouquet for the rest of one’s life! Today’s unique find narrates and explores the ‘Patua’ art form from the eastern part of the subcontinent through the ancient Vedic epic ‘Ramayan’. For those unaware, Ramayan is older that Greek epics like The Illiyad or The Odessy. With its first author being Sage Valmiki, it has morphed into multiple versions, absorbing the local characteristics of wherever it has spread (from Indian subcontinent till Southeast Asian countries like Cambodia, Indonesia and Malaysia). The core story remains unchanged and even today informs and influences the moral and social consciousness of this population. ‘Patachitra’ means images in scrolls. ‘Patuas’ are the artists of these patachitras. They not only capture their imagination in images but are also skilled oral storyteller!! Till the mid 1800s they used to perform door to door in their villages to earn a living. Thereafter, this practice sadly demised with colonialism and rapid urbanisation. In the last 30yrs, their popularity has soared thanks to renewed academic interest and support from the Indian government. Hope this short write up sparks your fascination in the vivid and rich world of Patachitra and Patuas!! #india #indianart #patua #patachirta #ruralart #bengal #peoplesart #ramayana #mahabharat #ancientepic #moralcompass #socialconsciousness #dharma #vedicphilosophy #internationalappeal #arthistory #oraltradition #traditionalculturalexpressions #heritage #culturvation #handmade #handpainted #singing #multiskilled #craftscouncilofwestbengal #darichafoundation #storytelling #textile #worldinspired #valmiki

No crisis. Only identity.
'Walk-and-Talk Skyscrapers' . . . Mesmerizing Delhi weather on a Saturday evening called for a visit to Rajpath region, where I witnessed the 'Paryatan Parv' (Tourism Festival) by @incredibleindia ,an initiative by Ministry of Tourism, Government of India. It was wonderful to see nuances of various cultural festivities occuring at a single place. In the era of technology oriented entertainment, the place was full of colours that belong to the old days of festive gatherings. It made me happy that the children of metropolitan cities got to interact with what used to be the elements of thrill and excitement for visit to Dussehra melas in my childhood. . . . #paryatanparv #2018 #incredibleindia #celebration #tourism #festive #nostalgia #culture #whp #delhidiaries #delhigram #dfordelhi #sodelhi #saadidilli #india_clicks #indiatravels #indiapictures #_coi #_soi #culturvation #photographers_of_india #instagram #instaportrait #indiaphotoproject #iiframe #shotononeplus

I made a promise to myself that I will not buy new books till I have finished the ones that remain unfinished and those that sit pretty on bookshelves unopened. And it is only recently I started paying heed to this promise. Not sure if I can keep the 'not buying' part of it, though. 🙊 . . . RV Smith's 'DELHI - unknown tales of a city' is a book I had read in parts. But this time I read it cover to cover. The stories in it are worth reading again and again. They leave you with an aching feeling of nostalgia and a strange sensation. Perfect for history and Delhi lovers who like their tales layered and served with a twist. Smith rightly ranks on top among the foremost and accomplished chroniclers of dilli. ❤️ . . . #love #bookstagram #books #booklover #rolibooks #delhi #unknowntalesofacity #instabooks #mustread #literature #bookaddict #bookaholic #writersofinstagram #instareview #bibliophile #delhibloggers #delhigram #history #culturvation #delhiexplorer #delhiheritage #delhiilove #ilovedelhi #sodelhi #BrunchBookChallenge #Book5 #DelhiEyes
