Haveli in Navalgarh, Rajasthan

Haveli in Navalgarh, Rajasthan


This was taken a few years ago, while on a visit to Pilani. Note the blue and yellow colors – that can be interpreted as either giving color to the otherwise plaid looking haveli….or ugly spots inflicted on our cultural heritage by people and system that fails to recognize the importance of preserving it!.

On a side note, I lived in Nawalgarh for the first 3-4 years of my life. Thought I had vague memories, but weirdly, even if I had any…they seem to be juxtaposed on my more recent memories. Or is it the other way round?🙂

My parents were so excited that I was going to visit the place! It’s such a wonder- they live just about 4 hours from this place…can visit it any time, but would rather get nostalgic about the time they spent 30 years ago in these areas! I wonder if it’s the lack of enthu, the lack of decisive action or a need to preserve your financial resources and not spend them on fanciful trips..that stops them from visiting these places!


Tis’ was the season of colors… and fulfilled wishes

During out trip to East Coast in October 2012, I fulfilled my long time desire of seeing the fall colors. It’s funny, how you eventually fulfill your wishes. You might not reach your destination in the way you thought you would, but if you want something strong enough, and are willing to take risks or work hard for it, you will eventually get there.

This pic is to celebrate just that- a fulfillment of wishes.

A moment to reflect

My cousin sister at her wedding in jan 2012. Calm, composed and bashful…totally unlike of what I was at mine!
