Bagore Ki Haveli in Udaipur – two hours of aesthetic pleasure

  “There is nothing much to see. The dance with fire show is in the evening. Click a photo jaldi (quickly), and I’ll take you to Moti Magri”. Our rickshaw driver obviously didn’t have a very high opinion of Bagore Ki Haveli. Perhaps he's seen too many palaces in the city he was lucky to live. ...read more »

In my defence, the museum is not ...read more »

Black-and-white Delhi

The Flora fountain – the mirage of a Roman goddess in Mumbai

I've been to this place so many times, yet I still can't get rid of the sensations that the Flora fountain keeps hiding its gems from me, slowly revealing them at every visit. The Hutatma Chowk, or Martyr's Square, where the fountain is situated, is probably the hottest spot of Mumbai, and it's hard to ...read more »
