“water water everywhere ,butnot a drop to drink” Carry water with you while travellig and fillit only from drinking water source or it’s cost a lot to buy water in tourist hotspots and drinking water from any other sources will leave you with illness , So,Be carefull with water.

Nalanda (part1): explore India 

The bus reached the destination, around 4:00 am ,it was as dark as meed night and cold . You can imagine, it was the New Year Eve….

No it was not nalanga, we had stopped at Rajgir, Nalanda is our second destination. so we went to a place where we can wait till there till the sun rises and cook food , more like a picnic you know, we were about 40 people,a full bus… that’s a lot of people. Now the sun rays has started reaching the earth and that’s why it’s tea time..then the breakfast is cooked and we enjoyed it together. we had we had an authentic heavy tripical Indian breakfast contain puris, sabhi (cooked vegetable with spices), some Indian sweets and a banana.

Now it was the time to go for site seeing… walking..hmm.. not this time, we had horse cart this time, this was the first time I was riding it..so our first site was a jail,yes jail of Bimbisar. Who has Bimbisara ? He was a ancient Indian King back in 5th century BCE. Then we

Now we reached the main site, santi-stup, A Buddhist temple.  And we were not in a situation to walk to the top so we waited for ropeway…  As it was New Year day, there were many tourists and we waited for long… finally after an our or so it was my turn… I was excited at first . I sat on the ropeway which was like a chiar structure with something of a seatbelt.. it was ok at bugging but as I was too young at that time and got frightened so closed my eyes till I reached the top… It was beautiful,cold: covered by fog ,like heaven and the Buddha statue was fantastic , then we walked down, no ropeway this time… when reached the place we stood and said goodbye to the horses…. it was around 1:00pm , the lunch was ready but what a funny tragedy….

To be considered….

Durga Puja: Explore India

Convergence The greatest festival of the Bengali community, durga Puja is one of the most popular festivals in India;. If you ever want to visit the bengal provivce of India ( West Bengal) ,then during Durga Puja will be the best time to visit..

So, what’s “Durga Puja”?

Durga is the name of a goddess from Hindu mythology and the phrase” Puja” means to worship .The festival is observed in the Hindu calendar month of Ashvin, typically September or October of the Gregorian calendar. The main Puja is for 4 days but informally it begins a week ago when” Navaratri” ( a Hindu Festival) starts. Durga Puja festival marks the battle of goddess Durga with the shape-shifting, deceptive and powerful buffalo demon Mahishasura and her emerging victorious. Thus, the festival epitomises the victory of good over evil, but it also a part of harvest festival that marks the goddess Durga  the power behind all of life and creation. The festival consists of Shashthi, Maha Saptami, Maha Ashtami, and Maha Nabami. The last day of the festival is Bijoya Dashami when the immersion of the Durga idol takes place. On the day of Bijoya Dashami, people meet each other and exchange greetings and young people pay their respects to the elders. During Durga Puja the whole province of Bengal is decorated a a bride, specially the state capital Kolkata even you can see how beautifully the roads are decorated. It’s like celebrating Christmas and Dewali at the same time. And what to explore most is the “pandals”, decorated with a unique theme or making replica of famous structure…  It can be like you are near the Statue of Liberty and by walking you bypass the great wall of China and reach Eiffel tower, great right!!! 

Now let’s me share my own expense… I was in Kolkata few months back,which was two weeks before Durga Puja, I aksed the cab driver about Durga Puja celebration in Kolkata as I never been at Kolkata during Durga Puja . He replied in a poetic tone” the real beauty of Kolkata can be seen in this 9days, it’s our pride” I continued, “will it be ok by going in cab to visit all pandal in one night?”…he replied that it will be better to walk and he explains why…”all roads are full of people,no place to drive,car moves slower than turtle and its more fun to walk with friends/family than to be in a car”I enquired as he owns a cab how he used to travel during Puja”. He replied “walking” I just wanted to continue to conversation but we had reached the destination… The Beautiful Victoria memorial,wow magnificent it was, we will talk about it later.

Now I rached the Howrah junction after enjoy Kolkata… magnificent place man, as I told I will tell you how was my experience while exploring kolkata. I reached the station 3 hours before the train time so I need to wait. So I searched for a some one , free like me, to pass the time and I found a old man , he was to catch the same train. I sit beside him watching people rushing for train and we two freely waiting…. I asked him “From when do you live in Kolkata,” he replied that he was born here, then we talked for more than an hour about kolkata for hours which I will tell you in exploring Kolkata then the next topic was Durga Puja…. “He explains Durga Puja as a grand celebration the city watches every year , it’s not only about Puja but much more”, he continued “ it’s about people leaving out come back to their home , every place is looks like as if royal marriage ceremony is to start,….and he continued but I didn’t remember asking I was in thoughts of his first few words…. “Puja is like a sprint we live for”he concluded….

“Durga Puja is everything for us,our soul,our pride, everything for us” commented another old man hearing us for a long time… the train reached I rushed to search my sit…. My Kolkata tour was finished, what I was left with was beautiful memories, of places I went to and some amazing people I mate there…and a wish to come back for durgapuja

So I decided to come back to during the Durga Puja. But alas I couldn’t ….but I will be there next year…. As they tell in bengali

“Asche bochor abar hobe” ( next year we will celebrate Durga Puja again)…
