Madhya Pradesh

A Glimpse of Madhya Pradesh

By

My cousin brother had already visited Mandu once, so no one can guide us better than him. He asked us to visit ‘Jaahaj Mahal’ first. This palace has no entry fees. This is a very huge palace and it will take time to roam around. More than roaming, capturing photographs and selfies can take time. So, we all agreed to visit Jaahaj Mahal first. It is a beautiful palace having a small lake and a beautiful garden. This palace is maintained well.  The scenic view is very mesmerizing. Sharing some of the pics with my readers.

गंगऊ बाँध और रनगवां बाँध – सौ साल पुराना छुपा खजाना

By

एल टाइप सी अजीब सी शेप लिए हुए विसाल डैम आपने आप में एक सुरंग सा था आर पार जो उसके मेंटेनेंस के लिए होगी शायद। जिसमे सैकड़ो खिड़किया थी जिनसे रोशनी ऐसे आ रही थी मानो हम कई शीशो में एक के गहराते  से माहोल में अपने अक्ष देख रहे हों।   वहां जगह जगह विदेशो से लायी गयी मशीने और उपकरण आज भी ज्यों के त्यों

Hindustan Ka Dil Dekho (M.P. Trip) – Part 3

By

I would suggest taking the upper deck ticket (which is cheaper) instead of lower one, as it gives you a better view with open space. It was approx. one hour ride, which was full of fun and masti, people started dancing on the floor, and kids were enjoying the cruise experience. The view around was extraordinary, and we felt like lost in the sea. Total paisa vasool, one should not miss this in Jabalpur for sure.

Hindustan Ka Dil Dekho (M.P. Trip) – Part 1

By

After having good time watching all above, we moved to the left side of the premises, to see if there was anything left. And there found a small handicraft shop, a tiny farm where white pigeons, rabbits and ducks are being kept and an astonishing view point, from where we could see whole of Sanchi’s wheat fields. It was completely mesmerizing.

Charming Chanderi – of Baiju Bawra, Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya and 1200 Baoli

By

The road stretch from Lalitpur to MP border will unhinge your joints. You cross into Ashoknagar district of MP over the downstream water channel of the Rajghat Dam. In rains water flows over the causeway. The landscape turns pretty with Vindhyachal hills and intermittent lakes making their entry. The early rains have made the hills lush with greenery. The beauty was enough for Babur to go ga-ga in his memoirs Babur Nama. The road after crossing into MP is a breeze and soon you see signs of the local Municipal Corporation welcoming you to the historic city of Chanderi. You are surprised to find the town clean with good roads and amazing signs for the tourists. Just looking at the densely packed attractions on the map confirms that Chanderi indeed is brimming with all kinds of monuments – tombs, mosques, gateways, palaces, temples and innumerable baolis.

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।

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

Panna Tiger Reserve, Pandava Falls and Ken River Lodge

By

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.

Like in party after eating every crap we go for some delicious, mouth watering sweets, so here in the similar fashion I am going to present you the king of the forest, the nocturnal, the royal, the BAAP of everyone, when he walks on green carpet peacocks stop dancing, sambhar left their doshas, languor’s stick to their branches and few lucky like us start clicking to their heart content, the tiger.

The Journey into Madhya Pradesh

By

After a few days, its time to explore another Hindi heartland right in the middle of India, Madhya Pradesh. This time I have to go to Ashta and Harda. I take the Samta Express which would arrive in Bhopal in the evening.
Now, in Bhopal, the train is on time and as I get down, I have made better plans this time and have already checked out which hotel I would be checking into. It is a stone’s throw from the railway station but for that you need to get past the shield of Auto Rickshaw Drivers who behave as if they have been sent there by god themselves and will not leave unless death do them apart from you. After using the technique of not looking at them, I check into the hotel and just fall asleep.
