Shopping in Paradise! 

Gliding like gentle giants on the Lake, they come from nowhere, bearing dignity, humility and exotic wares….sometimes flowers, Lotus and water lilly seeds, silver jewellery, embroidered cloth, papier mache artefacts.

The whole experience of shopping on water is a unique one! The sellers don’t harass, though one can see their eagerness to make a sale. 

Living in a place where peace is the most dispensable commodity, Every day that goes quietly needs to be cashed in. As they patiently open box after box, all they ask of you is that you have a look and if you really like something, buy. The money you part with will go a long way for them… For they don’t know when the next day of peace will dawn….

The Heaven most People Miss… 

The Tulip Gardens in Srinagar are open to public from the 1st to 15th of April.

After longing to be there for years I finally found myself smack in the middle of them!! They took my breath away to say the least. 


The setting of the gardens, in a Valley, overlooked by lofty mountains and fluffy clouds is supremely beautiful. Row upon row of the most glorious colors compliment each other and the eyes soak it all in and the heart releases a sigh of gratitude at such beauty!
