Places to vist during winters in India

Image
So I professed my love for winters in the previous post. For me, hill stations are for winters. Strange, right? I mean the entire country flocks to the Himalayas during summer vacations to escape the heat. But for me, I prefer to enjoy the hills during winters. The crowd is less and the weather is superb! Also I get to wear a lot of winter wear! Here I round up six of my favourite places in India (North specifically) to visit in the winters!

Dalhousie: The only reason I visited Dalhousie in January is for the snow blanket. Who needs to visit Europe when our own country has paradises like this?
 Its important to wear a smart yet warm jacket like this. You can find many mens jackets online.



Ladakh: This place is the harshest, coldest and the least populated during winters. However the beauty during this time is unmatched! The hotels are the cheapest, you can get very friendly with the locals and you can finally connect with yourself as you can't be hooked to social media in Ladakh!

Marriages are made in heaven

Image
Marriages are made in heaven. Really? Well one thing I know. Indian weddings are definitely something heavenly. Its not called ''The Big Fat Indian Wedding'' without any reason. Indian weddings are grand in every way...the decor, the trousseau, food, gifts etc etc. Getting married is a difficult task indeed. First its the willingness to commit and then all the hoopla around shopping. Phew!
As times are changing, so are people's expectations. Things have become grander and getting ready more difficult. Looking back into my own wedding almost six years back, I feel lucky that I got married that time. I was not an overtly conscious person when it came to dressing up. My fiancee was more concerned than me. It was her who chose all the wedding essentials for me. I neither had the time nor energy to do buy wedding accessories. Now that I have attended so many weddings, and with so many wedding dresses online, wedding shopping has sort of become easier.. So here I am round…

Mr Brown opens in Indirapuram!

Image
I guess the name and brand is pretty familiar with all foodies. All the cakes and pastry lovers must be relying on Mr Brown for satiating their sweet tooth. Even if you are not a foodie, then too you must be relying on Mr Brown for your daily dose of breads. croissants and cookies. They are a staple in a household..ain't they?
For the uninitiated, Mr Brown is a household name for gourmet bakery products: breads, cookies, cakes and pastries. The brand which originated in Lucknow has spread its wings in different parts of UP. After a successful run in Kaushambi. one more branch has opened in NCR and the residents of Indirapuram are in for a sweet treat. The latest store of Mr Brown opened in Saya Zenith, Indirapuram opposite to Shipra Sun City. The good news is that not only the Indirapuram residents but the residents of Noida sector 62 and 63 are in for a sweet treat too! When I reached the store, I was indecisive as to what all to order. After half and hour of browsing, I went for t…

A day in my life in Bewakoof.com Joggers and T-shirt

Image
Just because I travel so much, most of the people who don't know me feel that my life is easy. But what they don't understand is that in order to arrange money for travelling, I work freaking hard. I can't even take off on Sundays. However I can wear comfortable casuals on weekends thankfully. Recently I came across Bewakoof.com and really liked their wide range of casuals. I chose a cool pair of denim jeans and a cobalt blue T-shirt. The T shirt spoke my mind: Gotta Move On!
Usually my Sundays start very early...I know I don't have the privilege to sleep in. I play cricket and am part of the Delhi Medical Association cricket team. Our matches are held every Sunday, at seven in the morning. So this Sunday too I left at six in the morning to play.
After my cricket match, I had to take rounds in my hospital. That took around 3 hours and got free at 5 in the evening. But that was not all. I, being the official Orthopedician of the Delhi Dynamos Team in the Indian Soccer Lea…

Hexa Experience Centre: Next Level Drive

Image
Ever since I had come back from Hyderabad, I had been thinking about my #HexaExperience. I drive a Honda Amaze and although I enjoy driving it, I keep on thinking about my Hexa stint. After coming back from Hyderabad, I have tried on my hands on a couple of SUVs but none could match Tata Hexa. I have been eagerly waiting for its launch next year.
My stars got lucky once again and Tata Motors came to my very own city! Yes, last weekend, Tata Motors prepped up the weekend of the residents of Delhi and NCR by hosting a Tata Hexa Experience Centre. Yes this time it was not only a Hexa Experience but an entire centre dedicated to Tata Hexa. Along with the car, there were a host of Tata brands and other activities which made our weekend delightful. And all this was in Leisure Valley, Gurugram. Even though it was a weekend, I had to extract time from my crazy schedule. After all I could not afford the opportunity to miss driving the Hexa. I reached in the evening when it had gone dark.
