India Confined


Whether it is sliding from its tip to toe or it is the two ends of the arrow Whether it is being a guest to a part or it is a new chapter to start
Every bit leaves a print behind
Every experience is a cause of delight

It happens in Gulmarg, and happens with all

Right next to the LoC you ski, you ride and glide

You halt for a hot maggie on the snow clad wall

A little below, the city that rocks, Where planning is exemplary, and the perfection it docks

Greater Himalayas from Kashmir

It's unparalleled lifestyle, and the architectural sheen

Not to forget the spree one goes on at Sectors 22 and 17

A wow city to be in, the union territory

Forever backed by Fort of Chandi

Swaying to a lil left,

When you car glides on the NH8

You relish the tryst with the venerable forts, palaces and lakes

Fighting the challenge of walking the sandunes

With the setting sun, the caravans trail in tune

Dehra Dun to Jaisalmer & Longewala road trip

Where to wake you up the peacock sings

Where else can be this royalty, Rajasthan, the land of kings

Most awaited nine nights, the sweetness in every dish

Every one must atleast once step into Gujrat and unleash

Vijay Vilas Palace, Mandvi, Gujrat

Did you spot a saffron flag? Or eat a wada pao by any chance?

Rise a little and onto the Sahyadris, you will be able to give clouds a glance

Clear blue skies of Pune

Tucked in the extreme west, Daman and Diu are those peaceful ones

You can just get and go with a no-agenda plan, and its absolute fun

Devka Beach, Daman

Sambhar, rasam, idli and dosa, each of these add their own flavour

The classical moves carry their elegance for savour

The house boats, the biriyani, the kanjivaram and IT, till the lower tip of our homeland it’s an abode to the Almighty

South India, a casket of culture skirted with waves aplenty

Millions come to witness the yatra, many more commend its sand art, carving, metal works and patta chitra

Day of its birth is known as Utkala Dibasa, from Orissa which became Odisha

Sneaking through the Siliguri corridor, we enter the paradise unexplored

Float on the ‘abode of clouds’ Meghalaya, Get lost in the tea of Assam,

Feel the royalty of the princely state of British India - Manipur. And spend hours bird watching in Mizoram

The unique culture of Tripura and Nagaland,

And to woo the botanists Arunachal awaits at the extreme end

If it is about spirituality, here it is. If it is about feeling high, here you should.

Talk to the clouds while it showers. Pamper your olfactory in the Valley of Flower

Ganga in action

Eat the guthkas and the sarson rayta, And do watch the peaks changing their mood

Enjoy the twining roads, it’s musical. Feel at home in Uttarakhand, you will find Gods in your neighborhood.

Himalayan Range from Mukteshwar, Uttarakhand

So is its neighbor Himachal Pradesh, natural escapade and awesome refresher.

Exemplary development, being the only one connecting lower and upper mall with an elevator.

On way to Shimla from Dehra Dun

It is vast, it’s deep
It’s rooted yet evolving in leaps
It’s unbelievable, and one of its kind
It would take ages to transcribe the charming land, hence India Confined.
