The dawn was sprinkled with grey clouds, but gold streaked in through the gaps. Flavours of coffee mingled with piping hot rasam.  "Wake up , we are leaving in an hour!" Before I could pop in a query, she was gone. Hurry ,scurry , cups of coffee, we were in the car,  speeding on. Trees pee  Read More...

THE FIGHT It was clear to me that a fight was going on.  I sat there, indulging in my favourite pastime. Observing people. I travel a lot and spend quite some time in airports and stations. A lot more time standing still at various traffic signals. Looking out, there’s so much to see, ob  Read More...

I started all alone from Kazipet to Visakhapatnam on 22 May 2019. The train departed at 6 p.m and arrived in Vizag the next morning. I met a lady from Chattisgarh when I was waiting for the train to Araku. She said to me, "I'm going to Jaipur." I thought she was talking about the capital of Rajastha  Read More...

I had recently travelled and I am so glad I did (you know, given the current circumstances and stuff). Similar to every time I travel, this was a dream I got to realise for a few days. When you think of it, we don't create our dream world to escape reality, but so we can survive it. When you travel,  Read More...

Coffee and Cacophony

I followed Rupsha, as she expertly navigated her way through the nooks and crannies of the historic College Street, the largest secondhand book market in the world. The mile-long avenue was dotted with hundreds of bookstores, big and small. A smell of new books, dreams, tea, mothballs and smoke hung  Read More...

AN EMPEROR'S ARMY - NOW A WORLD HERITAGE
By B.M. Kapoor in Travel | Reads: 112 | Likes: 1
Contrary to the general perception, China is not all about Beijing and Shanghai, as I found during a visit in 2005. Who could imagine that what was once a piece of a quiet rural countryside in China with open fields with small hillocks around and shrubs and trees spread all over, would turn out to   Read More...

By B.M. Kapoor in Travel | Reads: 195 | Likes: 1
Guilin is a simple likeable name, but not one that many people would easily recall. Thus I could be forgiven for not readily accepting my travel agent's suggestion that we should include it in our trip to China. I grudgingly agreed. It was only on reaching there that I realized the value of that sug  Read More...
