I visited Lakshman Sagar in Pali, Rajasthan recently. The place used to be a hunting lodge and it has now been converted into a hotel. They have 12 rooms in a vast open space! There are two restaurants which earlier used to be the janana (room for ladies) and mardana (room for men).
However what stuck me most was the open spaces around the place. It is literally in middle of nowhere and exactly what your doctor will prescribe for the frayed city nerves. There is no TV at the property and for miles around no habitation as well. I can never see such open skies in my cramped city life!

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?
