They say there are two reasons why people visit Rishikesh- rafting and religion. I managed to get both in one frame. This was clicked after we completed our rafting near Ram Jhula.
Rafting and Religion at Rishikesh
I have to admit I have been keen on rafting. This time I was told by my raft expert Amit that the rapids have been named by Sir Edmund Hillary. I The name that is stuck in my memory is called ‘return to the sender.’ There would be more on rafting at the Ganges soon.
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?
