Ahmedabad- A visit to a beautiful city of Gujarat


  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 😊.

Secret to maintain any relationship


One of my old posts… Secret to maintain a relationship…

The Pink Diary


What relationship is all about?! People around you may have warned you, do this or behave in a particular way to maintain a relationship.

Rest in Peace my friend


11th May 2016, it was time for us to check out, after we attended a friend’s wedding. I was in the elevator looking around the view through the transparent glass. I saw him sitting outside the hotel, he too was ready to leave for his home. My friend Tarun, I didn’t knew that it would be the last time, I might be seeing you.  I still can’t believe in the news I got to hear today that you are no more. Like always, I thought you are playing with us again with some stupid prank of yours. I was telling my husband ( Tarun was one of his best friends) to relax as the news might be fake and Tarun might be playing with us. But, no, this time he wasn’t playing with us. I was shocked and shaken completely when the news of his death was confirmed.
 Whenever we have been to Chennai, he would have everything planned for us. He always kept my comfort in his mind as most of the times, I was the only girl in the group of boys. He always told me one thing, my husband is lucky to have me and I am one of those girls, he has never felt bored with. Today, I am waiting here for my flight to catch a last glimpse of you. Tarun, wherever you are, may your soul rest in peace. We love you and will badly miss you.

Happy 69th Independence Day


  
Today again comes the special day for every Indian. Sixty eight years back, we were liberated from the rule of Britishers. Our freedom fighters sacrificed their lives for us and even today our Indian soldiers protect us from all the external threats. It’s because of them, we are able to enjoy our life and sleep peacefully. But, still today, one question resonates in my mind, has our country really got freedom? Still, we are facing so many issues within our country that has no end.

I do feel proud to be an Indian. But, do you think, are we doing justice to the sacrifice made by our great freedom fighters who kept our country ahead of their precious lives? Our we truly free today? 

Live and Let Live..

On the other hand, I got an opportunity to do something good on this important day. There was a blood donation camp held by Tata Memorial Hospital for their cancer patients. By donating my blood and being a part of such a good cause made me proud of myself. 

Happy Independence Day To all.

Life without you, is like a body without a soul,
My mind works, but is in your control.
Seeing you,the world around me comes to cease,
Being with you, I feel complete and I find my real inner peace.
I feel possessed and can do anything to see you happy,
Just being held by you, I feel secure and bliss.
Time will fly and my passion for love will keep on growing,
It will continue, till the day you don’t stop  your love and care sowing.

Let’s play in rain :-)


I have been off from blogging for a while and I know the duration has been long. But, soon I will update with my new post related to the beautiful places I have recently visited. Meanwhile, the climate around is so wonderful and I am reblogging one of my poems that would exactly explain how I feel😀.

The Pink Diary

 rain-wallpaper
The muddy smell of earth and the cool breeze touch,
Eyes sparkling with mirth and I am in love so much .
The dark cloud hiding the sun,
And the gentle wind indicating the monsoon has begun.
The first drop of rain starts pouring from the sky,
Kids playing in the puddle, splashing water on each other high.
The first shower of rain falling on your face,
Drain away your worries in its sweet and chilling embrace.
Whether you are young or old, just enjoy the climate and dance,
Bringing smiles on the face, Here comes the season of love and romance.

A quick and short post 😀


I am busy socializing these days that I rarely find time to write and even read novels or blog posts of my fellow bloggers. Finally, today I took some time out and thought of applying Mehendi on my hand😊.  I have learnt a basic Mehendi course, when I was in school. It’s been more than ten years now that I have designed a Mehendi on my hand. Though it took me almost two hours to apply, but I was happy and satisfied when I saw my effort as I drew the last line of the design on my hand. 

Below is the Mehendi design made my me on my hand. 

  

 ( PS: I have penned this post with one hand as my other hand is busy 😋. Yet some time left to remove the Mehendi )
