I was walking in search for a late lunch on the MI (Mirza Ismail) Road in Jaipur in October when I noticed this rich design on a structure. I was wondering what it could be.
When I looked at it a little more closely I realized it was a jewellery shop! When i clicked the pictures the security guard outside gave me a few nasty looks but nothing to seriously deter me!
No I didn’t enter the shop, though I am sure if I did there would have been many more photo opportunities. There is some thing about Jaipur and Jewel Shops, MI Road is full of them and Jaipur is full of them.
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?
