Our group visited 3 houses in the village, each specializing in a different craft. There was Mr. Husen's home where they made copper bells, then we were drawn in...

tent-city-kutch

I went back to Kutch in Gujarat for the third time in 2018. You may ask why do I keep going back to the same places? The answer is that I get to see only so much on one blogging trip and there is always more to explore on subsequent trips! My 2018 (and 2016) trip to the Rann Utsav was sponsored by the Gujarat Touris...

Lack of sleep is something that makes me feel like a dead fish! I barely got 2 hours of sleep before I boarded the inaugural Chennai Colombo Flight 6E 1201 with Indigo Airlines. Because @IndiGo6E is flying Chennai Colombo for the first time and I am going to be on that flight! pic.twitter.com/r5Ogu3bpSW — Mrid...

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!
