The Companion of Our Evening Reflections @ Pushkar

This great dane, Jackie, owned by the owner of The Pushkar Heritage, choses to spend its evenings brooding by our side. The droopy, sad eyes are a deception. Jackie is still a puppy at heart!!

Dhai Din ka Jhonpra @ Ajmer

This monument is a couple of hundred metres away from Ajmer Sharif. Local autowallahs, if you have hired one, may try their best to deter you from going there. They go to the extent of telling you that it is just one building. But that is only to convince you to hire the auto for the complete to and fro trip. The jhonpra is worth seeing. So don't be deterred. Go for it.

One with Nature

It has been raining on and off since the evening. The owner of the Pushkar Heritage Resort has attributed the rains and a brief spell of hail to the presence of Delhi-Wallahs in Pushkar.

It is a lovely weather. Cool and calm. I am sitting on the porch outside while my family is watching TV inside.

The resort owner has a huge doggy who has chosen to come and sit beside me. The restort itself is located on the foot of a hill

This is sheer bliss!
