When clouds play truant and hide all the mountain peaks what do you do? I tried to sit in a corner and take some people shots! Now I hardly ever do it. I am not sure if I will try it again but who knows? I am still a far cry from the fearless street photographers who shoot at close ranges. I was using a 75-300 mm lens to click the pictures from some distance.
A Girl Eating Ice cream, Phewa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal

A Boy Eating Icecream, Phewa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal
Then there was this boy also busy with his ice cream. All of them seem to be waiting for someone. Then some adults walked in. And this boy with a word did something so unexpected!
A Boy Sharing Icecream with his Mummy, Phewa Lake, Pokhara, Nepal
As soon as his mom came and sat next to him, without a word he gave her ice cream! Though the mom took only one bite and then told the kid to finish it.
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?
