Hey guys, New Video is up on my Youtube channel. This is time I travel to Hyderabad and not only check out the famous Charminar but some lesser known places as well. Do share your feedback and do not forget to subscribe to the channel. LINK IN BIO foe the full video 😊
Been MIA for few weeks because we had diwali celebrations on and then I just went into some lazy mood. Season of festivity is here and also time for year to end. Who all are retrospecting on year gone by? 2018 has been a wonderful year for me. I am ever so grateful.
I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me. . . .

From gutsy deserty elevations of ladakh to rolling luscious green ridge of Manali and Shimla. Had a wonderful experience this year. 2018 was full of ups and down but this year taught me how to be rough and tough in some situations, how to heal yourselves without telling anyone, how to not loose hope in your passion and how to be independent while travelling. Comparing to past years ,this one is the most beautiful year with lots of travelling. I had my sagas to hills each month. Nothing else I want from this yr. and some dreams came true. Hope 2019 will also the most amazing, let's see what adventitious stuffs will be welcoming me in next year. #himachal  #nature  #wanderlust #himachalpradesh  #himachaldiaries #travelgram  #beautiful  #delhi #photography  #incredibleindia #travelblogger  #awesomehimachal #lonelyplanetindia  #blogger #ngtindia  #mountainlove #kullumanali  #serene  #canon #himalyas  #amazing #landscapes  #hippieinhills #indiatravel  #beautyofnature #happiness  #nature_brilliance #indiapictures  #natgeotravel #travelindia
The best thing about treks is that you don’t know what’next, what kind of trail it would be and how it gonna look.. I think that makes it more exciting and you keep walking until you witness the best view🏞 Do you also love #treks ? . . . #indiatourism #photographers_of_india #yourshot_india #ngtindia #natgeoindia #natgeotravel #landscape #goodshotz #landscapephotograpy #earthpix #globe_travel #global_hotshotz #_poi #streetsofindia #_soi #tripotocommunity #CNTgiveitashot #_coi #india #beautifuldestinations #travel #travelphotography #travelblogger #travelling #traveller #indianblogger #indiantravelblogger #CNTgiveitAShot #instagram
Being serenaded over breakfast 💕🙏 How can one be anything but enchanted in this wonderfully diverse and culturally rich country.
Waiting for justice. Rajbala, a widow with 3 daughters and 2 sons lives here in this nomadic tent. She lost her husband around 10 years ago, and till then she's surviving with her kids by doing field jobs in the farms nearby. She dreams to get her kids educated, and become successful in life and out of the miseries of being poor. As per her, her ancestor's land which is to be inherited by her is no longer hers because the locals of the village being strong and powerful acquired her land. She has plead in the district court, and is still waiting for justice. I don't know how to help her out but if I come across with any organization which actually works for the rights of poor, definitely I will explain the story to them. On the other hand..The old fort is the new hotel now, the ruler king threw the Baba and his piir down the little hill and the poor woman and her kids living in the nomadic tent. I drove up till the fort, considering that it's still a fort but is a luxury hotel now unfortunately. The doorman didn't allow me to go inside the fort without a booking just to even check out the fort or view from the fort. He was doing just his duty, nevermind. Though the cars were parked and I could pitch my tent in a lesser space than a sedan, but they denied for that too..part of their job. Okay. So, i drove down the hill and headed back n saw a grave (mazaar) and my curiosity landed me here. Grounded people have bigger heart, and so was Rajbala..and she offered me a stay in her tent for the night. I bought some Vegetables and Atta for the dinner and later use for them. And we enjoyed the basic meal under the lights of the one. . . #innerjoon #travel #travelblogger #photojournalism #travelphotography #nomadlife #myrajasthan #humanrights #ngo #supportlocal #women #wanderlust #storiesofindia #indiapictures #neemranafort #sky #camping #fort #roadtrip #potd #followmyjourney #cntgiveitashot #ngtindia #truestory #neverstopexploring #explorer #wanderer #traveler #lifeofadventure #backpacking
Education is not preparation for life. Education is life itself - John Dewey # Location - NH4, Satara, Maharashtra, India # If reposting the picture, mention me in the credits.
In its 100th year... And that added to my yearning to witness সন্ধিপূজা there, away from my neighbourhood, for the very first time... . One of the most important rituals of Durga Puja is the সন্ধিপূজা, which is performed at a very important time... It is done at the exact juncture when the Ashtami period ends & Nabami period begins... The last 24 minutes of Ashtami & first 24 minutes of Nabami is regarded as the সন্ধিক্ষণ... This is the exact time when Goddess Durga slayed the notorious demon pair Chando & Mundo... According to legend, Goddess Durga appeared in front of the errant demon king, Mahishasura in the form of a beautiful woman... It is then, when Mahishasura's allies, Chando & Mundo attacked the Her from behind...The Goddess was so enraged by this breach of battle rules that Her face turned blue... She opened her third eye & incarnated as Goddess Chamunda(taken from Chando and Mundo)... This incarnate was a form of the blood curdling Goddess Kali... She annihilated Chando & Mundo with Her scimitar... সন্ধিপূজা is performed to worship the Chamunda form of Goddess Durga... On the eve of Nabami, the final offering is made to Goddess Durga... Thus the arrangements for সন্ধিপূজা are grand... 108 lotuses & 108 earthen oil lamps are offered... A single whole fruit(preferably red in color), red Hibiscus flowers, saree, uncooked rice grains, a garland of 108 Wood Apple(বেল) leaves & jewellery(if one is offering any) follow... An animal, fruit or vegetable is also sacrificed... . শুভ মহাষ্টমী to all!!! . . . #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #india_gram #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #_soi #_coi #storiesofindia #storiesofdurgapuja18 #photographers_of_india #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #theuncommonbox #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #ashlopujo #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography

The Great Master, Sri Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa started the tradition in 1872 by worshipping His consort, Maa Sarada as a maiden... His chief disciple Swami Vivekananda, following Him, started maiden worship in 1901 at Belur Math, after it was built... 117 years on, it's continuing towards eternity... . শুভ মহাষ্টমী to all!!! . . . #girl #kid #kidsofinstagram #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #india_gram #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #_soi #storiesofindia #storiesofdurgapuja18 #photographers_of_india #desi_diaries #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #ig_calcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #theuncommonbox #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #ashlopujo #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography

কলাবউ/নবপত্রিকা স্নান।।। The ritual bathing of a young Banana plant along with the leaves of 8 other plants, representing the 9 forms of Goddess Durga, namely the Banana( কলা) plant - Goddess Brahmani, Colocasia(কচু) plant - Goddess Kalika, Turmeric( হলুদ) plant - Goddess Durga, Common Sesban(জয়ন্তী) plant - Goddess Kartiki, Wood Apple(বেল) - Goddess Shiva, Pomegranate(ডালিম) plant - Goddess Raktadantika, Ashoka(অশোক) plant - Goddess Shokrahita, Arum( মানকচু) plant - Goddess Chamunda & Rice(ধান) plant - Goddess Lakshmi... These 9 leaves are collectively known as নবপত্রিকা... In the early hours of Mahasaptami, the twigs of white Clitoria/Butterfly Pea(অপরাজিতা) plant  along with 9 bunches of yellow threads are used to tie the নবপত্রিকা... It is then given a bath... Our scriptures compare the elaborate bathing ritual of the নবপত্রিকা with the coronation of a king... Just like the king is bathed with waters from holy places, bathing the নবপত্রিকা too requires the same... Thereafter a white saree with red border is draped around it & vermillion is applied, making it look like a bride... It is finally set up at the site of worship... It marks the beginning of worship for the day of Mahasaptami... Popularly believed to be Lord Ganesha's wife, কলাবউ/নবপত্রিকা is actually the manifestation, rather the plant form of Goddess Durga... . শুভ মহাসপ্তমী to all!!! . . . #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #india_gram #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #_soi #storiesofindia #storiesofdurgapuja18 #photographers_of_india #desi_diaries #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #theuncommonbox #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #ashlopujo #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography

বোধন।।। It is the ritual invocation of the deity or awakening of Goddess Durga... According to Hindu mythology, all Gods & Goddesses sleep for 6 months during winter solstice... Since the festival of Durga Puja falls in the middle of this period, Goddess Durga is first awakened before worshipping... The very first awakening was done by Lord Rama, who wanted to propitiate the Goddess before fighting Ravana, the ten-headed demon king of Lanka... In recent times, Maharaja Nabakrishna Deb did the same, after the allied powers(the British & the zamindars) emerged victorious against Nawab Sirajuddaulah, in the Battle Of Plassey, 1757... The British termed অকাল বোধন as "celebration of victory"... Due to untimely awakening of Goddess Durga, বোধন is customarily known as অকাল বোধন... The ritual is traditionally performed under a Wood Apple(বেল) plant... . প্রতীক্ষার অবসান।।। The official commencement of Durga Puja... . শুভ মহাষষ্ঠী to all!!! . . . #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #india_gram #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #_soi #_coi #storiesofindia #storiesofdurgapuja18 #photographers_of_india #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #theuncommonbox #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #ashlopujo #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography
