Back to the Motherland

I have been absent for a while and that's because I was busy doing my favorite thing - travel! This time it was India for two weeks and my, how much I saw and experienced in such a short time!


The main purpose of this trip was to celebrate Deepavali with my family. All of us are spread out across the globe so it is usually difficult to plan a reunion at a time suitable for everyone. It was a dream to celebrate this special occasion as a family in India and it finally came true this year! I will dedicate an entire entry to my Deepavali celebration and elaborate more about the festival then.

My itinerary in India was like this:

Chennai - Trichy - Tirupati - Bhubaneswar - Puri - Konark - Bengaluru - Chennai


In two weeks, I covered four states and each and every segment was so unique and different in its own way. More than 2,300 photos were taken and I am trying to sort them out as quickly as I can to share them with you.

Stay glued to the screen as my next entry would be about the very interesting city of Trichy!
