When I shared the pictures with my colleagues, one of them came running to me and told me, “How did you manage to make the Rhododendrons purple? Aren’t they red? I have never seen a purple one.” Now that is something because he belongs to Uttrakhand and has lived for considerable time in the hills.
But then in Leeds these purple Rhododendrons were growing with glee!
Oh! and VJ shared his pictures of Oxford with me and take my words for it, they are brilliant.
I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video.
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
