A break from the routine after such a long time. Open spaces and mountains busy draping themselves in a cover of green, preparing for the hard white winter to come. We saw solid frost in a town of dust on day one. Life is hard there. There was one shop open, two men huddled by a fire, another washing clothes in ice-cold water. It was many small cups of tea before we were able to feel some warmth.

Roadtrip: Delhi – Kalra (Punjab)

I had the awesome opportunity to visit a village in Punjab for wedding and be fortunate to experience the famous Punjabi hospitality. It was a four-day affair with a 420-odd kilometer drive in either direction and plenty of driving around in the local area itself.
