National Gallery of Modern Art | New Delhi | India ~ A summer afternoon experiencing Art

What to do on a ruthlessly hot weekend summer afternoon as a couple? Malls get too boring after a time (how much window shopping can one do and how much people can one watch!) and there are not many nice movies of our choice (maybe we are getting jaded and old style couple). Well, I got the brainwave last week to visit National Gallery of Modern Art (New Delhi, India) and when I asked the husband, he was quite open to it (he appreciates art since he never could get much headway in it as a school kid!). So on a hot summer Sunday (temperature at exactly 45 degrees celcius), we visited the National Gallery of Modern Art in New Delhi (India) and it was a lovely time spent experiencing Art.

National Gallery of Modern Art (NGMA), New Delhi, India  is a premier institution of its kind in India. It is run and administered as a subordinate office to the Department of Culture, Government of India and has two branches one at Mumbai and the other at Bangaluru. As the gallery website rightly describes “The gallery is a repository of the cultural ethos of the country and showcases the changing art forms through the passage of the last hundred and fifty years starting from about 1857 in the field of Visual and Plastic arts. The NGMA collection today is undeniably the most significant collection of modern and contemporary art in the country today.

The Perfect Vacation ~ A wayfarer soul’s wishlist

Take Vacations, go as many places as you can,
You can Always make money, You can’t always make memories.


I would like to start by saying that there is nothing called a standard ‘PERFECT VACATION’.  For me, a vacation can be of many kinds – Family Vacation, vacation with friends and solo vacation.  Needless to say, each vacation is different from another and the list of perfect circumstances to make the vacation ‘perfect’ in my travel wishlist will differ. However, a hassle free vacation which does not leave me more stressed afterwards is a ‘perfect’ vacation for me.

Himachal Heritage Village in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh ~ A relaxing authentic Himachali style Cottage Resort

A breezy & sunny summer morning lazing around in a swing hammock, watching the beautiful dhauladhar ranges in the distance and the ever changing skyline, with the sun & clouds playing hide-n-seek; my mind went blank of all thought process – all the business meetings that were needed to be scheduled next week, the work deadlines that had to be met and the endless family errands that needed to be attended to. The sights & sounds of the natural water stream, the beautiful rustic Himachali style cottages, the pretty landscape – only all of these mattered in that moment. And I though to myself, I have to come back here for longer!!
I stayed at Himachal Heritage Village during my long weekend getaway at Palampur and it was filled with many such pretty moments. Sharing my experience of staying at Himachal Heritage Village, Palampur, Himachal Pradesh.

Long Weekend Getaway to Palampur with Himachal Heritage Village

The mountains are calling and I must go.” (John Muir)

When I read the update on one of my favourite travel groups on Facebook (TCBG) about a possible getaway to Palampur earlier this month, this was the first thought that came to my mind. I had initial questions in my mind, as it meant travelling with a group of people I barely knew, but finally the call of the mountains was too strong and it overcame all my apprehensions. I spent an action packed yet rejuvenating long weekend at Palampur with Himachal Heritage Village and it turned out to be an unique travel experience. Sharing experience here of my long weekend getaway to Palampur with Himachal Heritage Village.
