The shops at Rishikesh were colorful and attractively decorated. I am very fond of stones found on the riverside so I had to click these stones (I think they are sold as a religious object?) I don’t know how they make them this ultra smooth?
I actually clicked this shop because the evening light was falling on it and I knew it would look good. It was only later I saw at the messages written on the various boards on display. The English one says (second from the bottom on the left hand side) Magic Power Ring for Blood Pressure. The Hindi notices are similar one saying ‘lucky ring’ and such. The good part on this trip was that we did not meet even a single holy person who pestered us for anything.
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?
