Day 3: Back from Ramtek

October 3, 2011

Yes, this is day 3 and I am still on.

Had a wonderful trip to Ramtek and nearby locations.  We (Kailash and I) reached Kachurwahi last night and headed to Ramtek early morning today.  We visited Khindsi Lake, Nagarjuna Vihara, Nagarjuna hill, Kalidas smarak, Ram Mandir, and then to a nearby fort at Nagardhan.  We didn’t in fact go in the Ramtek town, but visited all unusual locations in the periphery.  We clicked a lot of photos and had a lot of fun.  We could not go to Mansar excavation site because of time restrictions; let us see for the next time.

Nagarjuna Hill is a wonderful place and I had been to it a few years ago.  The great Buddhist philosopher Nagarjuna is said to have spent some time of his life here.  There is also a Buddhist vihara at the base of the hill.  There was a young guy from Japan who came here as a monk in search of peace.  It was too peaceful there, both in the Vihara and atop the Nagarjuna Hill.

Nagardhan, known as Nandivardhan in the medieval India, was a Capital city of the Vakataka dynasty.  The old capital has now remained only as a small village.  The fort is also left in too much negligence by the government.  It is a historical place, we should learn to know its importance.

The return journey was too much of a torture.  I was too tired and the road travel through Kamthi was Itwari was just sucking.  I had a vomiting just after reaching home, but now I’m fine.

Excited about my photos, but will need to do some basic photo-editing and sorting before I upload them, so keep an eye, I will be there soon 🙂  Give me a feedback, I love comments 🙂

Day 2: I’m in hurry!

October 2, 2011

It’s only the second day of my 30-day post-a-day challenge, and I am in great hurry to find any time to blog, so I am just tucking in this post in five minutes.

It is a Sunday and still I had been in office all the day today.  I have just been back a while ago and getting ready to go on an one-day trip to Ramtek-Kachurwahi with Kailash.  We are going on a bike, so it’s better to reach our destination before it gets dark.  I will be back by tomorrow evening, so I will be here for tomorrow’s post with some great experiences and great shots from Ramtek for Panoramio.

So, grant me a leave for now, I will just be back in a while 🙂
