Some things are just there and whenever I do not wear rings I feel so naked. I can skip ear rings without any problems, but my rings are a big no no, I can not miss them.
During a normal day, I have to wear two rings, if I do not and miss. I get worried that I might have lost the ring/rings, which have happened eariler. Anyways, there are some rings which are for everyday use. Some are in gold and other in silver. Right, now i am in silver mood and only wearing silver rings.
Anyways, this ring is 5-6 years old and bought it in India. I do not now if it was in the south or in the north. One thing is for sure, I did not buy the ring in Pune. Too costly place for tourist things.
In earlier posts have been about my family in India and about my sisters wedding (which I can not attend due to fianl exams). But, she did send some photos from a ritual which they have before the offical preparations for the wedding could start.
My question is why this ritual what is the history behind it, what do they do during the ritual? The only thing I could figure out was the people at the ritual were women from the family. Also, everyone were really beautiful in the sarees. Still what do they do at the ritual? I do know and can even understand from the photos…
Does anyone know? I am so lost!
I reqested some of my friends to send photos from India with the Diwali festival and all I can say is I miss this too much. I really miss being in India with my families. This festival is the best festival in India. With the fireworks, pooja, food and families and friends.
I have no words beside, I wish to be there and get afried of all the fireworks and wondring if India is in war or not.
Let us visit all the historical places
Enjoy the places and study the History
To sit in the sun and have a great time
The time has come
I like this photo from 2011 from Goa to the beach house. Travling in Indian trains are not like Swedish trains at all. Specially when the Indians train have no AC.. The only wind is from the window and the air is too hot to feel pleasent. The temprature outdoor and in the train is the same, the dust from the air hits the face and all you want to do is to get out and wash the face and body and the clothes really good for the sweat and dust.
I should not even mention the bathrooms on the train… Go and have a look and you realized the Swedis trains bathrroms are not that bad (hahah).
The journey is a part of the whole holiday. A travel has always some story from the train or the plane. But one thing is for sure, I would never travel alone as a girl in Indian train. Never and specially if the journey is during the night too. I would be scared. I know that many people are good, but you never know… Bad luck and something might happen.
I have no problems to travel with the plane alone, it feels so much more safer than the train.
This photo was taken when we traveled in lowest class without AC, we could not handle the journey that great. We were melting away… If I remember right, we took the train from Goa to a beach house during Feburary. Too hot.
I remember this time very well. My friends and I went to Camp to spend some time in SGS mall. What do we meet when we step in side the mall? yes, this big bander “girls love six packs”. You can understand what a big surprise and shock we got. In india where it is impossible to speak about it, movie are being censure. And just infront of us is this all about the big sensative topic with a bad joke. Anyway, as a tourist we took our cameras because when will we see a sign like this again?
I can say like this, I have never seen a sign for durex in India every since our vist at SGS mall. The sign must have happen by mistake, or bad bit anything. But this was not a normal sign in India or any other country.
