A Brief Political Journey

Reflections on a brief political career

0

Though it was in 2013 that I formally made my entry into politics, the thought of politics was there in my mind since 1998. Even when I wrote the objectives for the IRM group that we created during our Engineering, I found myself visualising that it will be a third political front in Indian politics. I started to consciously learn Hindi with the same motive. And after […]

Chardham Yatra

1

It was 5 years back that I first went to the Chardham Yatra. It was a very very memorable experience. I can still feel that chill and whiteness of the Himalayan mountains that I was seeing for the first time.  After the Yatra, I thought I should visit these places every year. But it took 5 years for me to come here again. Of course the devastating […]

So I felt there is no point in going […]

Strongly connected by the Hindu and the Hindi roots, you are likely to feel very much at home in Nepal. But despite all this connect Nepal is very much another country. It all starts in the Airport itself. Thanks to the heavy passenger traffic […]

Vaishnodevi and Amarnath

0

I first visited the Holy Shrine of Lord Amarnath in 2015.  But by the time we had darshan the ice linga of Lord Amarnath had almost melted down. Even though the Yatra goes on for two months, the Linga usually melts before 30 days.  Though we enjoyed that journey, there was a hidden desire in me to go there once again.  While having a casual discussion with […]
