I visited a small village in Himachl Pradesh called Khakhnal. It is the next village after Jagatsukh towards Naggar. I love walking and I love walking in the mountains. It was evening and the sky was putting up some show!
Khakhnal, Himachal Pradesh
When reached this point I realized that there were houses ahead and I would not get a better view. I decided to turn back. It was getting late and I wanted a cup of tea before I started walking back. I was walking on the main road and I could have hopped into a bus if I wanted but I was still quite fresh.
Women at Khakhnal, Himachal Pradesh
And when I started walking back after having my tea I spotted these women on a terrace. They all were eagerly waiting for a local festival procession to pass.

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?
