Sky Watch Friday- More Skies from Jagatsukh

By Mridula Dwivedi April 19, 2013 14 Comments ,

For today’s sky watch I once again fall back on the mountains. My last visit was to Jagatsukh near Manali and I share two pictures from there.

I like small and peaceful places a lot. And Jagatsukh scores very high on both, small and peaceful. Here children as small as 5 year old still roam on their own in the neighborhood and parents don’t worry that something would happen to them. I remember when we went there in October 2011 for the first time and my daughter was not in front of my eyes. I assumed she was with my husband and suddenly I saw my husband also walking towards me. I almost panicked and asked him where she was? In big cities we hardly ever let them get out of our sight! He laughed and said they are all playing together nearby and it was fine. He had been to Jagatsukh a few times before.

And this was one beautiful house in the region. We often day dream that we want to retire to a small place and I would love to live in a place like this. Not this big a house but the place! Maintaining this big a house would be such a task! What do you think?

  1. i love the pastel sky in the 2nd photo…this place looks absolutely picturesque. you’re right, maintaining a big house when we’re retired would be a lot of work. i’d prefer a smaller house, too–by the mountains or by the sea.:p

  2. these are the kind of houses we dream of living in too, someday… both samhith and i see houses wherever we go, and point out interesting things about it.. and then, when we come back, he tries to make some of them with his blocks! thats how close we come to living in them!!!

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?
