“hey, Mridulaji, its nice to read such beautiful & informative articles, particularly contents belongs to middle class tourist. …”
Can you blame me if I feel flattered? What I like the best is of course “particularly contents belong to middle class tourist.” I take it as a huge complement. Thank you dear writer.
Just today I was reading this (in Hindustan Times Sunday supplement Brunch) as travel advice in a column called ‘indulge’ by Seema Goswami:
Crease-proof clothes which can be rolled into the tiniest bag make for the best holiday wardrobe (and other such pearls of wisdom). It is followed by a picture of a picture perfect lady on vacation, wearing at least 4 inches of heels and not a hair out of place framing a perfectly made up face.
Try as I may, I can’t achieve that look even for work (don’t even want to), forget about trying to achieve it on a vacation. Cause the places I go, no one gives a damn about my wardrobe. The picture above is a testimony. Apart from my husband, our guide and the bhainse (buffaloes) there was no one else around for miles.
I know, I know not everyone is sirfira (eccentric) like me when it comes to travel but it won’t hurt the mainstream media to climb down from its high horse and write just an occasional article that touches base with the middle class.
