Dhuandhar Fall and Bhedaghat

अमरकंटक से निकलती नर्मदा नदी जब भेड़ाघाट तक आती है तो उसका यौवन अपने उफान पर होता है। हालांकि ना ही ये किसी किस्म के आक्रोश की गर्जन है और ना ही किसी दर्प का प्रर्दशन, लेकिन एक स्वाभाविक आवेग जब क्रीड़ा करने पर उतारु हो तो उसका प्रतिलक्षण शायद इतना ही विहंगम होगा। जी हां धुआंधार प्रपात को भारत के नियाग्रा प्रपात की संज्ञा दी जाती है और इसका अहसास इस जगह पर आकर ही किया जा सकता है। नर्मदा की लहरों का शोर, उस तेज बहाव के चट्टानों पर टकराने से उठती धुंध और उसकी वजह से बनता एक रहस्मयी आवरण, पल भर में ही आपको सम्मोहित कर देगा।

Jaipur : Chokhi Dhani and Sightseeing

By

Finally it was time to have food and it was so sumptuous that we forgot to click the images. There were 5 kinds of vegetables, 3 kinds of chapattis, curd, sweets, desi ghee and I don’t know what else. After meal my only thinking was that if they fed so much then for some extra charge they should also provide a bed so that one can sleep then and there if felt so. But indeed it was a bad idea even I can’t imagine people sleeping and burping at this beautiful place. So, I scolded myself for such a bad dreaming and we came out more than happy, filled till neck, and started the engine to find a bed as soon as possible.

By

There was a famous kite master of Jaipur; Babu Khan. He must be some kind of previous champion because he was alone getting 50% attention of media and tourists and also flying the longest chain of kites.

Then started the cultural and dance program. Without any effort one can easily notice the way people of Rajasthan dress themselves, especially the ladies. It was extremely colorful coupled with bangles and ornaments.

Khajuraho : Exotic and Unbelievable

Khajuraho : Exotic and Unbelievable

By

It is hard to think that why these marvel of architectures are build here in complete isolation? There is nothing of significant interest or beauty to recommend Khajuraho as a building site and also there is no big population so some big fort nearby. Whatever be the answer the truth is that this isolated location helped preserve it from the vandalism of Muslim invaders. Due to the threat of Afghan invaders, Chandela kings forsook Khajuraho for their forts. Also all the religious activities were abandoned so that this should be kept away from the eyes of invaders. With the passing time forest covered this entire region.

Panna Tiger Reserve, Pandava Falls and Ken River Lodge

One of the practical benefits that I enjoy most working in News Channel is the man-power available at every nook and corner of the country and that too is very resourceful. Bottom line is that resort as well safari was completely free. Rajasthan has best tourist facility to explore national parks. Solo traveler like me can book his own ticket only and he will get accommodated with others without any pain. But here in Panna one need to hire a complete Gypsy that charges around 3600 for a safari. The same situation is with Kanha that I visited later in this month. With little delay we started our journey at 6:30.
