Sparkle #192: Incredible India!

India – the land of multiple sights, sounds and experiences. A country which belongs to both the rich and the poor, the old and the young alike. This is the same place where you will find something as enchanting as the Taj Mahal, and something as depressing as the polluted river Yamuna. People here can be extremely helpful and friendly, or they can be really good con artists who will not shy away from making an extra buck off a gullible tourist. Brimming with diverse but complementary cultures, India can be loud, exaggerated and overwhelming for anyone. But once you spend some time here, it becomes easy to spot a method to it’s madness,…

Color Me Crazy: Holi Happiness

Today is Holi – the festival of colors, love, laughter and merrymaking. The Holi festival marks the end of winter and is a great way to welcome spring. Holi is probably one of the most chilled out Indian festivals ever – all you are expected to do on the day is put color on your family and friends (kind of like paintball), eat, drink and just have fun! Holi is a celebration of love, friendship and happiness. The fun and frolic in the air, faces drenched in color, people soaking wet, music, dance and togetherness – I love everything about this festival! On…

Sparkle #173: Travel Wishlist – India Edition

It is so much fun to create a travel wishlist for the year. Last year, Paris was right at the top of my list, and I was so thrilled when that trip actually happened! So there is definitely some merit in thinking about where you want to travel this year. If you have clear dreams and plans, the universe might just conspire to make it happen! This year, my travel wishlist is restricted to specific places in India.
