A Tour Into The Bhopal’s Tribal Museum: Why Did I Never Visit This Perfect Land?

Bhopal’s Madhya Pradesh Tribal Museum

  What do you generally expect when you go to a museum? A lot of history, old stashes of books, aesthetics in the corners and other same old stuff. Right? Well, I know this, and this is exactly what we may find once we walk into a museum. But Bhopal’s Madhya Pradesh Tribal Museum was a breeze of crisp air. The aesthetics unfurl a rich tapestry of stories along with the depiction of all the tribes from Madhya Pradesh. They are canvased and crafted perfectly into an artsy rich environment, an environment that made me fall in love with history. I …

On My Plate: The Classic South Indian Meal @ Madurai Kumar Mess, Chennai

banana leaf meal

  Chennai; the city I can gladly call home, was not just a delight to my soul but also my tummy. Yes, if you are in Chennai and if you love food (of course, you love food) you have to try everything that the cultural hub of Tamil Nadu has to offer. No visit to Chennai is complete without rolling your sleeves up and going the whole hog (seriously, completely) on food larger than life. I am not kidding, the food served in the banana leaf was larger than life. While most of you might think that the city has …

Through My Soulful Lens: Holipura Village Visit Around Chambal

Holipura Village Chambal

  What comes to your mind, when you first think of Chambal? Do you think about Phoolan Devi or Paan Singh Tomar? I know even the name ‘Chambal’ creates a fear in our mind but the time has changed. The ravines of the Chambal village no longer house the famous dacoits. The ravines of Chambal (Madhya Pradesh’s Morena and Uttar Pradesh’s Bundalkhand) might definitely be a house to a thousand folklores once upon a time, the ones that are mostly narrated by our grannies in an attempt to threaten us but the village holds much more than what we’ve always …

Walking Down The Bustling Streets Of Hyderabad At The Charminar

Charminar Hyderabad Blog

As I walked into the hot flash of air and a buzzling crowd covering the streets full of colourful dupattas, bangles everywhere and that strong tingling spicy smell emanating from the street food shops down the lane, I found myself on the iconic street of Hyderabad. Hyderabad, a city with an enticing plethora of options for food, shopping should be labelled a paradise for travellers and hoggers. Hyderabad, the city that is famous for its scrumptious biryani, beautiful pearls, glittery bangles and Irani cafes that dish out lip-smacking Irani chai and cookies was a great experience for me. While I was …

Dear 25 Year Old Me, This Is What I Have To Say

Cheryl Rambles

  So recently a friend asked me, “What advice would you give your 25- year- old self?” and I was mum. There were a thousand thoughts running through my mind and I was struggling to string them together and put them all in front of her, all the things I wish to say to my present self. I stood there for a while taking deep breaths, looking out of the window, trying to play with my fingers a little, gathering all that courage and looking for the right moment to retch them all out. It was not like I had …

One of Maharashtra’s most unusual landscapes; Kaas plateau is enveloped in flowers of various kinds four months every year.

Hampi is magical! You must go to Hampi!

Hampi. Let me admit this, being a North Indian girl and living in Madhya Pradesh all my life, the first time when I went through the pictures of this region, I found them pretty sober and somewhere close to Mandav. I decided that I would rather travel way past Kerala and visit the tea plantations or maybe take a river cruise. Well, after a lot of thought, I somehow settled my mind for Goa and then to Hampi. Hampi; as I heard from a lot of people is a hippie paradise; an unexpected place with really jagged rocks, rice paddy fields, …
