We all have at least one of these and each one of us is guilty of them, the phobias. Mine is going underwater. I am a good swimmer but I never open my eyes underwater even in a swimming pool! When life gave me opportunity to live in Maldives and I started making my bucket list of top things to do in Maldives, Scuba diving was nowhere in that list. So what changed and why I decided and did scuba dive is what this account is all about. I hope that this experience of mine will help people with similar fears to go for it! It is my story of how I got over my phobia, step by step and came out victorious on the other side!

It was a chance visit to Khajuraho for me in March’2017. For all those who do not know Khajuraho is super famous for its depiction of eroticism. If you thought it was only Kamasutra that Indians gave to the world…well they had a visual guide too only it stayed back amongst these temples in India!
There is almost nothing that can spoil my travels except PEOPLE! Really, only if I did not have to put up with those obnoxious co-passengers who range from irritating to completely unbearable!! The insensitivity of such people stuns me and I usually oscillate from complete aloofness to squabble and in some extreme cases, a slap right across the face! Here I tell "all" about my not so wonderful experiences with co-travelers, i am sure you will all relate to some of them.....
It is Holi time again and even though India will witness the best of it, this vibrant festival has crossed boundaries to enter other countries too! So while this Monday will give us the glimpses of the Holi this year, let me take you on a trip to the holi I celebrated last year. that was quite different from the usual holis . Since, it was in a scenic Himalayan town of Sujanpur Tira in the State of Himachal Pradesh which was still reeling under the harshness of winter, use of water was non-existent except some daredevil youngsters who decided to defy nature! It was more about the carnival in the main grounds, shopping, an exhibition of folk culture and some live performances from some of the well-known artists. So let us embark on the journey through this photo feature and say as they famously say- HOLI HAI!! (Its Holi!).
It is amazing to look back and think on certain moments of your dream trip or that vacation where things could have gone from Oh-so-Perfect to a complete nightmare!

A full-fledged rescue was launched to find them and here is the complete story from the zero rescuers.
Many of my trips have had their share of blunders and some of them were BIG ones. There is this silly streak in us that just won’t keep us from having a little blooper adventure on our trips.

India’s North Eastern region is the one least explored even by Indians! So when the opportunity to take a sneak peek into these famously beautiful states came, I had to go. The place of my rendezvous with North Eastern India was Tawang in the State of Arunachal Pradesh and I had never heard of it before. It is about 400 Kilometres (249 miles) from Assam by road. With a little anticipation, I started for that mysterious road-trip. Little did I know that I am about to unfold the secrets of nature that will leave a lasting impression on my mind.
It was a sudden trip and a sudden turn which we decided to take and ……that one turn took us to a dark forest expanse which was stunning yet chillingly eerie. It looked like a set from a horror movie and this realization was not comforting. The board in front of us said “Welcome to the Kalatop forest and wildlife sanctuary”. The sight was more like a haunted mansion seducing us and daring us to enter!
