Located in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, it is known as The Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas and yoga capital. Rishikesh is surrounded by three other districts namely Tehri Garhwal, Pauri Garhwal and Haridwar.
Rishikesh has been a part of the legendary ‘Kedarkhand’ (the present day Garhwal).Legends state that Lord Rama did penance here for killing Ravana, the demon king of Lanka; and Lakshmana, his younger brother, crossed the river Ganges, at a point, where the present ‘Lakshman Jhula’ bridge stands today, using a jute rope bridge. The ‘Kedar Khand’ of Skanda Purana, also mentions the existence of Indrakund at this very point. The jute-rope bridge was replaced by iron-rope suspension bridge in 1889, and after it was washed away in the 1924 floods, it was replaced by the present stronger bridge. Another similar suspension bridge Ram Jhula was built in 1986 at nearby Shivananda Nagar.

As it’s a well-known fact that yesterday was Mr. Narendra Modi- OUR NEW PM oath ceremony where he promised to serve the nation and its people.
This ceremony was not just covered on all leading new channels however there were many projectors, TV systems installed at railways stations and other places so that the local janta could watch the oath being taken by the man they have all mutually elected as their leader. Kudos to all for making this possible for those that were unable to sit in front of their television sets at home.
Sadly, on reaching Kandivali station the oath ceremony was almost completed and our national anthem had begun. I was standing with the crowd paying respect to our National Anthem and noticed that many people were busy with their own life’s. It was indeed shocking to see how people cannot give 5 minutes of their life to show their respect and gratitude for our nation but have the time to talk and surf on their phones or arguing with the autowallas etc. What shocked me further was the fact that despite seeing people standing in gratitude for our National Anthem many choose to just walk away..!!
It has been installed since our alma mater, that no matter whatever the situation we must always show our respect on hearing our national anthem. The disrespect is also commonly seen in movie halls where people simply ignore and use this time to chat/play around and pass comments while the anthem plays in the background.
If we the current generation shows no respect for our nation and its anthem then we shouldn’t be the ones hoping for a change.
Life’s like a road that you travel on
When there’s one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind
There’s a world outside ev’ry darkened door
Where blues won’t haunt you anymore
Where brave are free and lovers soar
Come ride with me to the distant shore
We won’t hesitate
To break down the garden gate
There’s not much time left today

It was an official trip to Pune and there I clicked some of the images of the Pune city. I love one thing about Pune city is that the city is in touch with old and precious monument and there is a sense of relaxation whenever you enter in Pune.
Visited kwality Restaurant on East Street which set shop way back in 1956. Needless to say, this place has many firsts to its credit. The ambiance of the restaurant was good, and the interior design of the restaurant was in touch with old scripts and designs.
Passing by Pune I managed to clicked some more photos keeping the old theme in mind 🙂
16 April 1853 was the historic date when India’s first passenger train journey took place between Bori Bunder in Mumbai and Thane. Covering a distance of 34 kilometres, it was hauled by three locomotives, Sahib, Sindh, and Sultan.
Google is commemorating that momentous event with a celebratory doodle on its India home page. The India’s first passenger train journey shows a steam locomotive pulling a passenger train on a palm-lined railway track.

In Hindu mythology, Durvasa was an ancient and chief of sages. Known for His temperamental nature, Durvasa was the son of Atri by Anasuya and was an incarnation of a portion of Shiva “The Destroyer”.
According to Vishnu Purana (one of the eighteen traditional puranas), Durvasa was wandering on Earth in a state of pure altered consciousness, with highly raised spiritual awareness due to a divine vow of insanity, came by Vidyadhari , (a female spirit who possesses middle regions of the atmosphere) and demanded for garland she was wearing, (according to the Vayu, the garland was given to Vidyadhari by Devi). Knowing the nature of Durvasa, Vidyadhari bowing to him reverentially, presented garland to the sage.
Durvasa wore it on his forehead and resumed wandering around.
While further wandering, Durvasa came across Indra (the Ruler of the 3 worlds) riding his elephant Airavata. Durvasa, still in a frenzy state of mind, took off garland from his forehead and threw it at Indra. Indra caught garland right in and hanged it over his elephant Airavata’s brow. Attracted by the fragrance of garland, Airavata took hold of the garland and cast it down on land. Watching this gesture of Indra, Durvasa was highly incensed at this disrespectful treatment of his gift and cursed Indra that he would be cast down from his position as a ruler of the three worlds, just as the garland was treated by him. Indra begged for forgiveness but Duravasa refusing, said: “What need of words? I will not forgive whatever aspect of humility you can assume.” and went his way.
Curst from Durvasa, Indra and Devas lost their strength. All vegetables, plants and herbs were diminishing to death in the three worlds ruled by Indra and were stripped off with prosperity. Seizing the opportunity and weakness of Devas, the Danavas (enemies of Devas), put forth their war of strength against Devas. The ambitiously agitated Danavas engaged in war with the unfortunate divinities, somehow Indra and survived Devas fled for refuge with Brahma “The Creator”.
The Creator of World, Brahma directed them to seek refuge with Vishnu “The Preserver of the Universe”. Vishnu, advised Devas to call a peace with Danavas and associatively churn the sea of milk together for equal portion of fruit. Also promising Danavas, the Amrit that shall be produced from the agitated ocean, with which they would become mighty and immortal. Vishnu directed to take mountain Mandara for churning as a stick in the ocean, the serpent Vasuki as a rope, positioning Devas at the tail and Danavas at the head of the serpent Vasuki. Vishnu promised, that he would ensure only Devas drank the Amrit and achieve immortality and defeat Danavas.
Churning the ocean for 1000 years, eventually Dhanwantari the divine robed in white, appeared with “Kumbh” containing the Amrit. The Danavas ran away snatching Kumbh from Dhanwantari, chased by the Devas. For 12 days and 12 nights (equalling to 12 human years), the Devas and Danavas fought in the sky for the possession of this pot of Amrit “Kumbh”. It is said that during the battle, drops of Amrit were fallen on four places of the Earth: Prayag, Haridwar, Ujjain and Nasik.
