I am enjoying spending my days in yoga pants although I miss dressing up and going out.I was thinking If I could dress up and go out but I could not do yoga for a month, it would be a bigger torture for me so I am thankful for my mat and practice. I can stay without dressing up and travelling but I can't stay without yoga although one may not be able to understand that aspect of my personality through my Instagram ID😀 I bought this beautiful choker from @simplysilverbyneha.

One of the many beautiful cenotaphs in the tiny town of Mandawa, Rajasthan! Known for its unique frescoes and cenotaphs dating back to the 18th century, Mandawa is beautiful. It isn't known to be the open art gallery of India just for no reason. It indeed is a place whose soul resides in such beautiful spots. India, stay incredible and hope you heal up soon. . . . . #travelgram #throwback #instatravel #travelpic #rajasthanclicks #throwbacktravel #bhangarhfort #travelphoto #indiantravellers #travelgoals #travelphotography #wanderlust #tripotocommunity #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #travelphotography #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

Throwback to some travel memories to make our "where are we going next?" selves feel better. ☺️ So, here's one from Bandhavgarh National Park, one of the best and biggest tiger reserves in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India! We have been to the "Big 5" in India and we must agree that forests are as enchanting as mountains are. Some things about these forests (all of them) are truly amazing so we thought of putting up a list of our top 5 favorite things. They would be: 1. Being able to feel how silence can be loud! The sound of leaves rustling, birds chirping, and an occassional call of the barking deer are primarily the only sounds you'll ever hear once you are inside. And, its thrilling. 2. Seeing nature and wildlife coexist with each other - and with love! 3. Witnessing the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets inside the forests! 4. Witnessing the bond mothers have with their babies in the animal world. (You'd not find one difference with us, in there) 5. Catching a glimpse of the big cat! Rare but the most special one! 😊 Do you have forest memories? Do let us know your best one. . . . #travelgram #bandhavgarh #bandhavgarhnationalpark #travelphoto #trekkersofindia #mptourism #indiantravellers #madhyapradesh #instavacation #madhyapradeshtourism #tripotocommunity #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

Read only necessary news and watch more comedy shows like me😄. I was so stressed for a day when Trevor Noah and Seth Meyers had to stop working because of the need for social distancing but I was super happy that they are doing their shows from their apartment..thank god I am still getting my dose of comedy everyday. My daughters have both started watching it with me now and they stare at me like I am crazy because I keep laughing at every joke. My older daughter keeps saying, "it's not so funny, why do you laugh" but I am honestly happy that I can laugh everyday.. Stay Safe, Stay Positive ❤️ I made some videos with Dahlia and the girls, will post them soon. We are definitely spending our time at home very constructively😝 Pic Credit @dreamer__mind : : : #mangofolk #iwearsaree #sareeinspiration #sareecollection #sareelove #handloomsaree #sareestyle #sareestory #sareelovers #sareefashion #buyhandloom #enchantingtamilnadu #incredibleindia #streetsofindia #india_gram #storiesofindia #india_everyday #wadacommunity #hellofrom #theindiaroute #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #movingcompass #sarinotsorry #whatshewore #wearingtoday #whatiwore #iwanderwhy

Do you think this is the same peacock I posted before? There are a few differences between both the pictures but what is the one big difference? I really wish there were peacocks in my community in Bangkok, I can really pass time watching them but i am happy for all the birds which come to my garden till Dahlia scares them away, disciplining my two girls has been much easier than disciplining Dahlia. If you don't know who Dahlia is, she is our little dog. She attacked a pigeon when she was a pup, I got the pigeon home and treated its wounds for 3 days before it was ready to fly again. I had to keep the pigeon away from Dahlia, trying to teach her compassion is not easy but she does realise that I hate it when she scares the tiny birds but sometimes she just wants to play with them but they understandably get scared of her🙄🐕🐦. Did you see the story of the pigeon and dog who became friends?

Our last road trip took us to a tiny town of eastern Rajasthan called Bundi. Though an increasingly popular tourist hangout with foreigners these days, its still not very popular with Indians, we'd say. Known for its beautiful Taragarh fort and the Garh palace, Bundi is another hidden gem of Rajasthan. That is the Taragarh fort and the Garh palace from a distance!! ❤️ The palace sits atop a rocky hillside, overlooking the bustling town of Bundi. Constructed by Rao Raja Ratan Singh in the 17th century, it is truly a wonder. Bundi is known as the mini blue city of Rajasthan. See the second picture and you'll know why! ❤️ . . . . #travelgram #instatravel #bundi #travelpic #taragarhfort #rajasthanclicks #rajasthantourism #rajasthandiaries #travelphoto #indiantravellers #travelgoals #travelphotography #wanderlust #tripotocommunity #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #travelphotography #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

Ravangla! A tiny town in South Sikkim. This picture is of the Buddha Park in Ravangla also known as Tathagata Tsal. Pretty as a postcard, this place mesmerized us. ❤️ On the birth anniversary of Lord Buddha in 2006, this eco-garden was inaugerated and the statue was installed. This has been a landmark of Ravangla tourism ever-since. What you see is known as the Sakyamuni Buddha which is clearly visible from all the directions of southwest Sikkim near Ravangla and some parts of west Sikkim. Surrounded by the majestic Himalayas from all sides, the park offers views of Kanchenjunga, Mount Pandim, Mount Siniolch, and Mount Kabru. Sikkim is beautiful. Hope you make it there someday. . . . #travelgram #sikkim #sikkimtourism #travelphoto #trekkersofindia #ravangla #indiantravellers #sikkimtrip #instavacation #himalayanfootslog #tripotocommunity #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #hills #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

Celebrating this women's day with a picture of one of the strongest girls I know.Missing this girl @nandhitharamesh and our weekend in Pondy, I kindda miss her cute little pup more than her🙊♥️ I came back to Bangkok last week and I am super happy to not travel anywhere in March but I am busy planning our April family holiday. I have go to the embassy tomorrow to check the visa procedure. Any idea where we are going? Clue:I have been waiting to do a split on the silk road and buy suzeni and Ikat fabric😀 _________________________________ The one thing I can't give up is traveling but it's probably my love for travel which is making me move towards a sustainable lifestyle in all other aspects of life. I am going to look into carbon offsetting our travels, I know there are some companies which do it but I am still not sure how it is done. An electric plane powered by electricity which is from clean energy might just be a possibility in the near future. The idealist in me is always hoping and dreaming of a green earth with no pollution or carbon emissions 💚 Go to my stories to see how I spent my Sunday morning🌎 : : : : : : #mangofolk #thecultpost #shutterbugsindia #indianphotographyhub #indianphotographyart #indianphotostory #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #yourclicks_india #fhotosthatspeak #wahindia #indiabeats #hellofrom #theindiaroute #enchantingtamilnadu #tamilnadutourism #wahindia #wadacommunity #iwanderwhy #movingcompass #passionpassport #mytinyatlas #travelandlife #abmlifeiscolorful #india_gram #storiesofindia #anotherelement #travelwriter

If you've seen our earlier posts on Mandawa, you'd know how badly we recommend it. A tiny, not-so-popular, not-so-touristy town of Rajasthan, Mandawa is full of colors. Colors wherever you look, wherever you go. The paintings you see everywhere in the town - on the walls of the havelis, inside the houses, the parapets, the cenotaphs are mesmerizing. Dripping with art and a fascinating history, it is indeed a traveller's paradise. And, a photographer's too! Do try and visit the place if you are anywhere in Rajasthan. Its not worth a miss. . . . #travelgram #instatravel #travelpic #rajasthanclicks #mandawa #travelphoto #indiantravellers #travelgoals #travelphotography #wanderlusts #tripotocommunity #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #mandawahavelis #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #travelphotography #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

இதயம் ஒரு கோயில்… அதில் உதயம் ஒரு பாடல்… Pic Credit @dreamer__mind This is a very old Kancheevaram from my grandmom💜 _______________________________I was in Chennai for 10 days, did a lot of temple hopping, dancing on Marina beach, climbing up the lighthouse and eating lots and lots of dosa, I did cheat on my plant based diet and had a few ghee dosas🙊. It was really tough to stay away from rasmalai, I had a little bit but the amazing part was the ability to sit across people eating mutton biryani, Chettinad fish curry etc and not get tempted. I underestimated the power of my own mind. A few weeks back someone said, "you have become plant based, you have stopped eating dairy and meat" in a tone suggesting that I might not be able to do it and my husband immediately responded, "don't underestimate the will power of her mind especially when it comes to environmental issues" 💚♥️😀 My fast fashion detox for a year was much easier than becoming plant based, this was probably the toughest but also the most satisfying decision towards a sustainable lifestyle. I firmly believe you should do what makes you happy and fortunately for me, every decision towards a sustainable lifestyle has set me free from the bondages of my own mind. : : : : : : #mangofolk #thecultpost #shutterbugsindia #indianphotographyhub #indianphotographyart #indianphotostory #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #yourclicks_india #fhotosthatspeak #wahindia #indiabeats #hellofrom #theindiaroute #click_vision #dailydoseofcolor #howihue #howyouglow #india_everyday #wadacommunity #shotatsight #spreadkhushiya #iwearsaree #sareeinspiration #sareecollection #sareelove #handloomsaree #sareestyle #sareestory #sareelovers

The more you spend your time in the ordinary streets, the more extraordinary things you will learn. _____________________Wearing @inde_loom Pic Credit @_hema_malini__ _____________________ In other news,I find it extremely ironic that air pollution levels have dropped by roughly a quarter over the last month in China.The coronavirus is helping the planet breathe as coal-fired power plants and industrial facilities have ramped down so employees in high-risk areas can stay home.Nobody wanted it this way but nature is beyond our control. Levels of nitrogen dioxide, a pollutant primarily from burning fossil fuels, were down as much as 30% according to a study. Although this is great for the planet, Its disturbing to see the human cost of economic slowdown especially when you know people personally who have to take massive pay cuts or might even lose their jobs.Gosh!! I wish this virus stops spreading like this and creating panic. I also hope that someone develops a technology to suck carbon from the air. That would be a win-win situation for the economy and the ecosystem 💚. As of now, we just have to keep striking and hoping there will be political will to make polices which help ecosystems thrive. : : : : #mangofolk #thecultpost #shutterbugsindia #indianphotographyhub #india_undiscovered #indianphotographyart #indianphotostory #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #yourclicks_india #fhotosthatspeak #wahindia #indiabeats #hellofrom #theindiaroute #india_everyday #iwearsaree #sareeinspiration #sareecollection #sareelove #handloomsaree #sareestyle #sareestory #sareelovers #sarinotsorry #handpainted #storiesofindia #streetsofindia #india_gram

Do you know why temples have big red and white stripes? I was curious so I asked google and what she said completely surprised me, I was definitely not expecting that answer. This is what came up.... "Well, it is pretty basic and primal. Red in this case stands for the menstrual blood and white stands for semen. In other words, it stands for the two all powerful concepts - the female principle and the male principle - the two binary opposite forces. It is in fact the yin and yang of ancient Indian philosophy" Now, I am wondering if the red represents menstrual blood, why are women not allowed to go to temples during their menstrual cycle? I will go and check this on google now😊😀. My yoga teacher at the institute I did my teachers training gave an explanation for this and I remember watching a video by Sadhguru too but i am not fully convinced on the reason. I also want to mention that I switched to a menstrual cup 8 months ago to avoid use and throw pads which many studies claimed were non biodegradable. Not to mention the plastic packaging etc etc, the cups are definitely worth if you are trying to make lifestyle changes which are sustainable. ______________________________Wearing a beautiful hand painted organza silk saree by @inde_loom, pic credit @_hema_malini__ : : : : : : : : : #mangofolk #thecultpost #shutterbugsindia #indianphotographyhub #indianphotographyart #indianphotostory #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #yourclicks_india #fhotosthatspeak #wahindia #indiabeats #hellofrom #theindiaroute #sareeinspiration #sareecollection #sareelove #handloomsaree #sareestyle #sareestory #sareelovers #sareefashion #iwearsaree #styleiswhat #styleinspiration #whatshewore #wearingtoday #whatiwore #iwanderwhy #movingcompass

I have many beautiful memories of Lucknow. Of the many things I have loved about Lucknow (including the food and the chikankari), the Imambara happens to be at the top of the list. I have spent two wonderful years in this place and I remember spending evenings on top of the Bhulbhulaiya walls sitting with my best friend, our legs hanging down the railings and watching the sun set. Some memories are precious. And you always remember them. ❤️ @amsaheli17 I always think about you whenever I am there. #travelgram #lucknow #lucknowdiaries #travelphoto #trekkersofindia #imambara #indiantravellers #lucknowtimes #instavacation #indianwonders #tripotocommunity #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

Travel... for it turns you into a story teller... . . Rahul and I have been traveling since the early 2000, mostly on a budget.. crisscrossing the country with our little ones... from #pondicherry to #bhutan, From #ladhak to #goa ... fun is to do it together, with children.. it was tough now that we look back ... but the children have grown up to be #fearless #adventurous and #realists .. . . Living in Delhi our favourite destination was the #nationalparksofindia or the #tigerreserve... so the top 5 in #india... but before that some things to remember if you venture out... . Research thoroughly, before going to a tiger reserve, best time of the year, best places to stay . Stay close to the gate, now you don’t want to travel 15km early in the morning . Learn certain etiquette’s when you are inside the tiger reserve . . Top 5 tiger reserves in India . 1. Ranthambhore national park 2. Bandhavagadh 3. Tadoba 4. Kaziranga 5. Corbett.. . These are my absolute favourite, in terms of sighting, foliage, the presence of tiger... once I see these majestic animal I forget to take pics, most of the time I am mesmerised... seen in this video ... the tigeress was was kind enough to show up with her kill.. 🥰🥰🥰 . . . . . . . . . . . . . #hellofrom #theindiaroute #bharatcharitra #fotothatspeaks #wahindia #yourclick_india #reclaimthehappy #inspiremyinstagram #movingcompass #travelindia #mangofolk #thecultpost #shutterbugindia #tigersofindia #indiantravelblogger #delhigram #lonetraveller #wildlife #wildlifephotography #natgeo

I was jokingly telling my friend that we give do much importance to seagulls compared to crows.We never say, "wow, look at that crow flying". She said, "did you know how important crows are to the ecosystem?" and I said, "What?? Really?? ... Mmmmm... Interesting". I was obviously curious so I asked my dear friend Google and she said that that crows eat carrion which is good for the ecosystem . _____________________________I was wondering if Google should be a 'He, She or It" but I just decided to make HER a SHE because only SHE knows everything 😀 : : : : #tamilnadutourism #enchantingtamilnadu #hellofrom #theindiaroute #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #yourclicks_india #fhotosthatspeak #wahindia #indiabeats #mangofolk #maestro_i #movingcompass #photocommune #photographersteam #iwanderwhy #india_undiscovered #travelrealindia #india_gram #storiesofindia #india_everyday #indianphotostory #indianphotographyart #moodyedits #templesofindia #indiantemples #architexture #abmlifeiscolorful #colorpallette #colorsofindia

Travel is the one thing which truly brings me so much joy. Being a wife and a mom to 2 big girls combined with the responsibility of coming to India often to see my parents and trying to take up travel and writing projects is not always rosy and happy.I can cry very quickly, you just have to show me a fish choking in the ocean and tears will run down my eyes. Compassion and empathy are tough qualities but I choose to be silly and idealistic but above everything else, I choose joy everyday. Someone recently sent me a message which resonated so much with me, he said, "it does not matter if you are 14 or 41,its lovely to see that you live the life you have to the fullest".

Colorful walls, pretty doors and beautiful art... This is the white town area in Pondicherry. This quaint little town has retained its old-world charm and comes very close to giving you a feel of the French culture.

This January, we were in Fatehpur Sikri for a day. We had just entered through the gates when this little boy came to us and requested us to take him along as a guide. He was too tiny to be a guide so we said no. He, however, started walking with us. We had initially planned to spend a couple of hours inside, by ourselves, sit and laze around, visit Salim Chisthi's Darga, and leave. However, since he just wouldn't leave our side, we finally took him along. He was with us for an hour and he tried hard to entertain us - he told us stories, he recited urdu shayaris, he sang songs, and made us pose for pictures. 😀 He had to say that he knew the best spots for pictures in Sikri. Before he left us, he insisted he click this one for us. While we never hire unregistered tourist guides, there was something about this boy that we couldn't say no to. Perhaps his zeal and his efforts to earn a few bucks in an age when he should have been in school. This one is for him. By him. From one of the most beautiful places in the Delhi-Agra circuit. Fatehpur Sikri! There are places that don't grow old. They don't age with time. They remain just the same - as same as you had seen them years ago. Did you know? Fateh means victory and Sikri is derived from the word Shukri in Urdu meaning thankful!

Throwback to one of the most beautiful places in tribal Himachal - Kalpa! Our favorite forever! This one was clicked in Roghi, a tiny village in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. We drove down to Roghi for half a day and thank God we did. Surrounded by huge gardens, village houses, and snowcapped mountains, this place is popular for its apple orchards, monasteries, and Kinnauri styled buildings. The drive to Roghi is adventurous (read dangerous) 😀 but you wouldn't mind it at all as soon as you see the spectacular Kinnaur Kailash range all around you. . . . #travelgram #himachalpictures #instadaily #instagood #instapicture #travelphoto #trekkersofindia #himachalpradeshtourism #indiantravellers #himachaldiaries #instavacation #himalayanfootslog #kalpa #wondertravellers #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #everydayindia #indiagram #theindiaroute #roadtrippin #roadtrippers #tripadvisor #travelphotography #photographysouls #travelholic #shutterbugs #_travellersofindia #atravelpicaday #incredibleindia #we_are_happyfeet

A tale of natural fibres... I read an article in THE HINDU about how a man called Shekar who belongs to a small community in Anakaputhur in Chennai is making sarees out of natural fibres. I was extremely intrigued and decided to go see for myself. I assumed that it would be a community which would be thriving under the sustainability boom considering that the demand for natural products is going up.I was wrong to assume that and learnt so much about their struggle after meeting them. I have been to weaving communities earlier which are taken over by large corporates but Shekar told me that he doesn't want to waste all his research and development to become an employee to a big greedy corporate. I was happy to see that Shekar had done so much research and development and he and his small community can produce fabric from 25 natural fibres like aloevera, banana, bamboo etc. I spoke to him about the possibility of producing natural plastic bags which are biodegradable, he showed me a basic prototype on that and said it is possible. Then, we discussed all the obstacles which made me want to literally cry. It is the same story everywhere, politicians don't want to encourage small industries because the big money is in the fossil fuel industry which also produces the plastic. When I left, he said, "Madam, please can you write a letter to the governor?", I looked at him and said, "The people who have come before me including media publications haven't been able to help, I am afraid I can't do much but I will try". He said, "Please try, the universe sent you here for a reason". Gosh!! I have had a crazy January with different voluntary work on sustainability and my mental health is getting affected when more and more layers of politics is uncovered. I spoke to someone recently who is trying to move environmental policies through UN and the Thai government and she said, "stay courageous, we have to leave a better planet for our children" : #mangofolk #thecultpost #shutterbugsindia #indianphotographyhub #indianphotographyart #sareeinspiration #knowfurther #bhaaratchitra #fhotosthatspeak #wahindia #indiabeats #hellofrom #theindiaroute #buyhandloom #
