some memorable experiences……and some treasured moments
I am a simple girl, who has a Travel Bug inside of her, which longs to go into the wilderness, far away from this maddening world, to explore new places, meet new people, indulge in succulent cuisines, and the list continues. This bug hit me when I very young.....I mean really young....may be 2-3 years old. I do not even remember. But I have faded memories of travelling with my parents all over India since that age. Of Course, now with cameras capturing everything that you have seen, memories become fresh and alive again.
And now, being an independent individual, who is working away from home, I do miss my family. But I make out the time to enjoy my life, and never ever let that TRAVEL BUG die inside me.
I love animals. Actually my whole family has a soft corner for animals, specially felines.
I am also a food freak. I would love to taste all different kinds of cuisines, if I ever get a chance to visit different countries.
I am not a great blogger, but I try to share my thoughts with the world, as and when I can, through SPECTRUM OF LIFE. This is my journey....hope you all will enjoy it.

Hello readers!! 🙂
Lets travel today to one of the most beautiful places of India…..Chopta. Fondly referred to as mini Switzerland, Chopta is not much explored. It is an untouched beauty, situated in Uttarakhand, somewhat near to Deoria Tal. The 4km trek to Tungnath begins from Chopta. Continue reading “Chopta….mini Switzerland”→
Another sunny day, yet another destination, 3 friends 🙂 , one short trip to the twin town of Mussorie called Landour. The distance from Haridwar is around 90Km and from Delhi is around 290Km . So we started off at around 8 am in the morning from Haridwar. When it is a holiday, and I am on a trip (no matter whether its long or short), I feel at my best 🙂 . So, we drove past Raiwala, Doiwala, Dehradun and took the turn towards Mussorie for our destination. Around 5Km before reaching Mussorie, there is a diversion which leads to Landour. One can also go via Mussorie, but we avoided that route due to traffic. Lots of research was done on the internet for a perfect weekend getaway, and there we landed in Landour, a serene location to drain out our weekdays frustration.

Hey all….Its been quite long that I wrote as some personal work kept me busy. But today I bring to you my journey to the last indian village called Mana 🙂 . The village gets its name from “The Manas Putras”, the biologcal sons of Lord Brahma. This was one of my excursions during my trip to the holy shrine of Badrinath, as Mana is just 3 kms from there. This is a rather small village located in the district of Chamoli in the state of Uttarakhand. The altitude will be around 3100m above sea level. The visit to this place has been one of the most exciting of all my trips. It feels so different to be standing just a few kms away from the Indian border and more so when you are having a cup of tea at the last Indian tea shop. Ahead of this village lies the Mana pass at a distance of around 24Kms. Continue reading “Mana……the last Indian village”→
Padharo Mharo Desh-Welcome to Rajasthan, is the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Rajasthan, and these are exact words used by the locals to welcome whoever visit their beautiful state. My second visit to Jaipur(the capital of Rajasthan) was made in the 1st week of November, 2013. Earlier I had visited Jaipur & Udaipur in 2004, with my parents. This time there was a time constraint, so I had to plan the trip only for 1 day. Nevertheless, I was very much excited, as the Royal grandeur of Rajasthan has always attracted me.

Tawang….a heavenly paradise in the state of Arunachal Pradesh, located in north eastern part of India. This place is very sparsely populated, may be because of its altitude. The locals are the Monpa tribe, who inhabit the entire region. The trip was on my mind since a long time, but finally everything matched and I visited Tawang in the month of April, 2013. I started from Tezpur in Assam through the help of a travel operator. The fare is around Rs.700-800 per person in a sumo. They managed with the Inner Line Permit, which is required for every visitor to Tawang, since it is a restricted area. Continue reading “Tawang…..an unexplored paradise”→
