I have been bound to home (almost) for a few months now. Ever since my visit to Bhutan in September, there hasn’t been much of travel lately, except for the short drive to Coorg with Ford India two weeks ago. With the winters settled in that’s about to change. The days of travel are here.
In two days, work will be taking me to the ghats of Varanasi, where I am spending a few days photographing life on the ghats. Later, after a quick stopover at Agra, I am hoping to spend a few days again on the bank of Ganga at Rishikesh, watching the river flow out of the mountains and attending a very gratifying aarti in the evenings.
A short trip to Hampi will follow early in December and a longer tour across Rajasthan at the end of the year. It is going to be a busy, on-the-road month of December.
Late in January, I am going back to Ladakh – a place where I have made many long journeys, this time to visit the frozen Pangong Lake in the harshest of the winters that one can experience in India.
All of these are places that I have visited in the past, and are places where I always love to keep going back. I am looking forward to days of travel in the next few months.
