I am back with my another post and today I am going to tell you a few places that you can visit if you are in Ahmedabad. Last month amid Diwali time, I had been for a mini weekend vacation with my family to Ahmedabad🙂. Located on the banks of Sabarmati river and a former capital city of state Gujarat, Ahmedabad is considered to be one of the fastest growing cities in India.
As I had a very less time, I visited a few yet some of the most important tourist places. My first destination wasSabarmati Ashram( Also called as Satyagraha Ashram) , which is a must visit place in Ahmedabad. Once upon a time the great Indian freedom fighter, Father of our Nation Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi stayed there with his wife Kasturba Gandhi. This place emerged as a national monument as Mahatma Gandhi started his journey from this very place to free our country and played a very significant role in India Independence movement. The entry to this Ashram is absolutely free and it is open from 8am to 7pm. This Ashram preserves the Charkha ( the spin wheel) that was used by Gandhiji. It displays the activities that were carried on by Gandhiji and his followers, his life stories, his work and a chance to see his house where he lived with his wife.
Our next destination wasLaw Garden. A small walk and lots of talk was all that we needed at that time 😃😊. After that we went for some street shopping just outside the law garden. It was very much crowded 🤨 and mostly all stalls use to open in evening. Then we headed to Manek chowk for some delicious street food 🍕🍛🍰. We ordered pizza, sandwiches, dosa and Amdavadi style Chocolate Rabdi Cheese sandwich as our dessert. If you are a foodie and would love to try different cuisines, you must try this place for street food in Ahmedabad 🙂.
The next day we decided to go toAdalaj Stepwelllocated in the village of Adalaj. The stepwell is five stories deep, intricately carved and built in sandstone.
In the evening we chose to visitSabarmati Riverfrontand mind you it was one of the awesome and peaceful places, I have been in that city. The view of river Sabarmati and the peace that I felt as soon as I enter is incredible 🤩. You can also enjoy riding in a speedboat there. Though, I didn’t get a chance to ride in it, as a few local visitors were breaking the queue, pushing others and were creating problems. I chose to step back as I wasn’t in a mood for this fuss 🤫. Otherwise, I have no complaints and one must visit this place and shouldn’t miss it. Considering this as one of the most recommended tourist places, the Government should appoint some employees here to manage things properly.
The last place that I had visited wasKankaria Lake. This is the second largest lake in Ahmedabad and has attractions such as toy train, water rides, a zoo and food stalls. We didn’t stayed there for much time and sat for only 15 minutes and enjoyed the evening view 😊.
I had a exceptionally bustling day today. And guess who joined me and my better half on our work today? None other than my little nephew BabyKiyaan😘. He was away on a small outing with his family and I missed his presence a lot. I met my little cutie after longest fifteen days 😘. I fall in love with him every time, I see his love for me❤️. “ Maasi Halo” (Aunty Lets go ) were his words when he saw me today and I ran to embrace my little baby. Mind you my dearest your hugs and kisses were missed every day! I and your Chotu (a pet name given by my nephew to my husband 😋) had a very lovely time today 😘.

Thank you for making our morning lovely by your presence and filling joy and happiness in our life😘😍🙂
So like I had said that India’s one of the biggest festivals Diwali was round the corner and I was totally occupied with it🙂. I had a great Diwali 😀. I had decorated my home 😊, lighted it with diyas all around , had lots of sweets, went out and enjoyed my festival. To me, Diwali doesnt mean that I have to burst crackers, instead I love decorating my home, being traditional , having a peaceful time with my family, celebrating it by going out with them. I had a great time and I thank God for blessing me with beautiful souls around. Also, I am just back from a short trip from Ahmedabad and soon I will post about it here.
Till then bye guys and stay Happy.

Hope all of you doing good😀? Well its Diwali time in India, and the preparations have already started😊. Almost a month prior, cleaning of our house becomes utmost important for us. Almost in every household, before Diwali this is the most important thing that rings a bell🙍🏽and obviously later would be cooking delicious different sweet desserts👩🏽🍳.
Now people who don’t know what is this festival all about, I would like to say something about it. Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights which signifies the triumph of good over evil. It is a five day celebration where people decorate their homes and light them to show the power of light over darkness. Gifts and sweets are bought and exchanged with families and friends. Rangolis are made in homes and the house is lightened by diyas all around.
Now I and my husband got time yesterday for cleaning our home and I know that we are already late😕! So we had to clean in a day’s time and that’s a big task in itself😐. So we started around 1pm in the afternoon and without any breaks in between, we went on constant till 7pm and we made it, we cleaned our house🤓. Still, we had to shop for a few things and after quickly taking shower, doing our evening Pooja we left for our other task. We were just on water the complete day and were very hungry🙁, but we made sure we bought our stuff first and then thought of relaxing! We came back at home late 12:30am, with happiness on our face of making sure our Diwali is full of lights and happiness around😄.
Though today, we got up with severe pains in our body🤕🤧😓 and still we have to do a few things before our Diwali days start. Doing things together, be it cleaning or shopping or decorating, I enjoy it completely and thanks to my husband who made sure I am not alone in anything👫. Love him for doing everything possible and not thinking that it’s only my job to do. Celebrating Diwali together with your family adds up to your happiness and I will surely miss my family who is on a small trip to our village and especially my nephew Kiyaan 😘who is too away on a trip. Will upload some photos soon on my blog 🙂.
So guys Wish you a very Happy Diwali🎇🎉 and enjoy your Diwali and be safe and let others be safe too. Spread Happiness 🙂.
Don’t ask questions to someone,
Whose answer you know is going to hurt you.
Because it won’t have any impact on the person who is replying,
But it will definitely affect you
And hurt you within.
It’s not possible to make everyone understand,
And if you have to repeat the same every time,
You need to realize that
The person is never going to understand you or your feelings.
So one must accept the fact and stop expecting from others.
