I first visited the Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering building at night and I could not make out its features at all. Also the concentration was on not falling down while walking on snow. Then I caught a glimpse of the Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering at Gulmarg from a moving vehicle during the next day. I knew I had to ask the driver to stop so that we could click pictures!
Indian Institute of Skiing and Mountaineering, Gulmarg
I met the principle of the institute and you could see how much he enjoyed his work. He said I could actually do a course with my daughter if I can manage two weeks of leave! Now that is a very tempting proposition for me but not sure how my 5 year old will react to it! When I told her she shouted, “I will make a lot of snowmen!” I think I will just take her to a place where she make snowmen and leave skiing and all to when she grows up more or when I can easily manage two weeks of leave!
And the skies tell you a story too, it snowed at night at Gulmarg on the day I took this picture.

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?
