Metro is my preferred mode of transport if I hav...

Sometimes I sort pictures before I write a post. This is one such post. When I looked at the pictures I immediately realized this post is going to be more about 'food and me' rather than food at Makhan Restaurant at Mercure Dwarka! You will see in a moment why!

Mridula Dwivedi

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
