Travel photography – Kareri Lake Trek

It is a dangerous business Frodo, going out your door, you step onto the road and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off.

– Bilbo Baggins, #lotr

Well trekking for the Kareri Lake was definitely dangerous.

Travel photography – Laitlum Canyon

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and our willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point of pretending that nothing has happened or we are not yet ready. 

The challenge will not wait, life does not look back. A week is more than enough time to decide whether or not to accept our destiny. – The Devil & Miss Prym by Paulo Coelho

Indian Independence Day

The tricolour might be a bit distorted in this image but the idea remains the same behind each Independence Day celebration.
Let us not take our freedom for granted. The privileges we are currently enjoying came after a long fought struggle of the masses. Our culture, cuisine, natural environment & beauty, practices and of course our people are enriched with the idea of oneness, let us never forget that!
Happy Independence Day! 🇮🇳🇮🇳🇮🇳

The Great Kebab Factory, Radisson Sohna Road, Gurgaon

Shorba with bread: Bread fluffy and with a distinct flavour of fennel. It compliments the tangy and light tomato shorba pretty well.

Pudina Rani Murg: The juicy chicken leg piece is good to dig into and refreshing mint marination along with creamy yogurt is a wonderful add on.

CB59BC91-49BD-42EE-AD93-CA818DA46075

Galouti Kebab: The chefs at The Great Kebab Factory are Galouti Kebab specialists – you know it when the kebabs are flavourful and melt in the mouth.

6A01E7F2-1A58-4F93-908D-199FBA01EC30

Machhi ke sholey: Delicate fish chunks with a chewy crust – I could not have asked for more!

Gosht Tawa Chaap: A very pleasant surprise! The tender mutton ribs are drenched in a hot and spicy gravy with the prominent flavour of black pepper. Lip smacking to say the least!

4A5FBF87-61BD-4BE4-A326-061E16459F7B

Methi Murg Malai: The usual Malai Chicken with the goodness of fenugreek and smoked to juicy perfection.

0F36472B-2F22-4A50-A460-4F1B80A11AD3

Mutton Dum Biryani: Pure love with tender mutton pieces in a flavourful bed of rice and coarse spices.

89AC3339-A16E-44F3-ACCA-186DEF5670A2

Mutton Rogan Josh:  My favourite to place to have Rohan Josh – the lightly mutton shanks in a rich gravy served with Naan.

Gulab Jamun: Very mellow and moderately sweet.

BFFE191B-99DA-44ED-A6E2-1903D6988B27

Moong Dal Halwa: Full marks to the presentation! The halwa has the necessary richness but not too sweet.

Pineapple Phirni: The velvety texture will leave your heart splits although the extra sweetness will compel you to have this slowly. Hi
