The mash up of all the stuff I have published on travel

India – General

A regularly updated photo narrative of what it is like to travel in India is hosted on Picasa and on Flickr.

My regular travel blog (with irregular posts) is called Road Below Me (with due credit to RL Stevenson for the name)

Over the last five years, I have made more than 10 trips to the eastern state primarily for work. In most of these trips, I managed to find time to go around and see much of the state.

Tamil Nadu

Tamil Nadu has been another much explored state, especially on the road. Chennai to Ponicherry, Madurai down to Tuticorin and upto Dindigul all the way to Salem, Erode and Coimbatore. I haven’t written much but I will plug the gaps shortly.

Uttar Pradesh

A single trip to Uttar Pradesh last year confirmed / reinforced my agnosticism and dislike towards religion and religious fervour.
