An NRI Independence Day Wish

Surrounded by the mighty Himalayas, AR Rahman’s “Vande Mataram” being played through speakers and the army marching in unison to salute a national flag fluttering in the wind against a clear blue sky interspersed with fluffy white clouds we watched the national flag being unfurled after a series of Independence day ceremonies – It was an epic moment – the kind that gives goosebumps even when you think about it years later.

The Unsung Hill Town – Lovedale, Ooty

Ooty, known as the Queen of the Hill Stations always tends to get crowded throughout the year. But 5kms away from the main town of Ooty is a quaint little town that not many have yet discovered – “Lovedale”. The tourist traffic nearly thins out here and this town serves as the best place for honeymooners ,nature lovers and non-commercial offbeat travelers.
