We wanted to do some shopping at Gulmarg as we were not confident about the conditions at Srinagar. And we found that even though there were many hotels, restaurants and snow boot renting shops but only place to buy shawls, t-shirts etc. For me buying something for my daughter is a must, that is my entry fee to get back into my home!
The Shopkeeper at Gulmarg, Kashmir, India
After I finished my shopping at the only shop, the shopkeeper said, “you were so soft, otherwise women bargain quite hard.” I bought a stole quite similar to what you see in the display. But I will have to wait for the next season to use it as winter has gone away from NCR!
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?
