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 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!
