Sky High

Recently Conde Nast Traveler published a post featuring images from places high up. So I thought why not have a similar post even on this blog.

Starting with an image of Paris from the top of Eiffel Tower. With the Sacre Coeur in view.

DSC_0610Next we look onto the city of Prague, from the Prague castle situated strategically on a hilltop making it tough for the ancient man as well as the modern man with high blood cholesterol to climb.

DSC_0246Lets get out of Europe and look at Dubai

DSC_0135Lets look down upon one of the Indian cities, the city of Kolkata.

DSC_0010Back to Europe, to Italy specifically, looking at the red housetops of Venice.

DSC_0546Next we look down upon Florence, the city after which Florence Nightingale was named. The view is secured after climbing over 400 treacherous steps through narrow pathways and dark haunting alleys all built within the Florence Duomo.

DSC_0004 Finally we look over the city of Rome, which incidentally was not built in a day, from the top of the St Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City.

Holi Hai

The festival of colors Holi is one of the major festivals of India, Holi is celebrated with enthusiasm and gaiety on the full moon day in the month of Phalgun which is the month of March as per the Gregorian calendar.Holi frolic and celebrations begin the morning after Holika bonfire (Days before the festival people start gathering wood and combustible materials for the bonfire in parks, community centers, near temples and other open spaces. On top of the pyre is an effigy to signify Holika who tricked Prahalad into the fire.). There is no tradition of holding puja (prayer), and the day is for partying and pure enjoyment. Children and youth form groups  armed with dry colours, coloured solution & means to fill and spray others with coloured solution (known as pichkaris), balloons that can hold coloured water, and other creative means are also used to colour the targets. The event has now become an almost international event and is celebrated by people (Indians or not) around the world.
