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.
A House at Jagatsukh, Himachal Pradesh, India
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?

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?
