The weird watermark on the right is my name in Tamizh – my native language!
I just returned from a 9 day long travel trip, one of which included a short stay at Kathmandu, Nepal for 3 days as part of my company’s team retreat! Though i could not try the many exciting adventure sports or visit the Everest base camp, it was definitely a wish come true to see the vast mountain range up-close and personal! Breathtaking is what i would say. The Nepali food was healthy and tasty (though the prevalence of buffalo meat may not be suited to everyone’s palate), the temples and palaces were splendid (too bad could not visit Pashupathinath Temple).
It was evident that Nepal is one of the few places in the world where the marvel of nature’s creations are intact and can be experienced in possibly many ways! Check out some of the pictures i was able to take during my stay – (My favorite ones are the aerial shots from the flight back to Delhi of course! – Simply stunning views)

To all my followers and casual visitors, here’s wishing you a very happy and prosperous Diwali ! Once again for my non-Indian friends, Diwali is an Indian festival celebrated with extravagance every year where we buy new clothes, burst crackers all day long and eat tons of home-made sweets. But the real fun begins in the night when people start bursting their fancy fireworks for hours together (poor Ozone!) . And THAT is my favorite part of the day!
This time i decided to try my hand at long exposure with fireworks and the results were pretty interesting! See for yourself!
