Back from Alwar, Rajasthan

By Mridula Dwivedi January 26, 2013 15 Comments ,

We took a short break at Alwar in Rajasthan. This was a family trip and we all enjoyed a lot. I just got back a few hours back. But as I have said before, if I have an internet connection I will blog. I find it difficult to go to sleep if I don’t. And as of now I have to eat dinner too. But a picture from Alwar first.

Alwar, Rajasthan

This was clicked today evening while going to Siliserh Lake. This bridge stands in middle of no where and I requested my taxi driver to stop so that I could click a picture. He was quite courteous about it. It is another matter that most of the time if I am clicking pictures with Chhavi around, she would be physically shaking me to do something else. But there are other times as well when she waits patiently for me to finish my shot and then put forth her demand. More of this and Palampur too in the days to come.

  1. nice click! its indeed a challenge to click with kids around. samhith does the same too.. sometimes he keeps shaking me, and sometimes waits… and there are times when he tells me “dont click amma, enjoy the scene”!

  2. Apart from areas around Udaipur & may be some part of eastern Rajasthan the arid climate reflects in every picture. Did u visit so called haunted Bhangarh fort which is near to Alwar?

  3. Hi Anuradha,

    Lovely shot but the bridge looks dilapidated and not useful any longer.
    Thank God, Chhavi stuck with her patience and all of us can see the results of that. The click has come out perfect.
    Loved the post 🙂
