How often you travel? Many people said once in a year going for a big vacation is good. I don’t have a goal of something like that. But try to go for a vacation when I get time off from my work and my budget allows. I don’t mind if it is small or big as per as I find some time to spend with my close ones.
Last year me and my wife was trying to select a place for vacation within India. Because of I like city and my wife likes remote places with natural beauty, we always try to select places where we can enjoy both. After lot of discussions we select ‘Visakhapatnam’ (‘Vizag’ in short).
I often see that people are asking each other about what political party they support. There are some people who always supports a single political party even when that party is doing things which are not right. I wonders in my mind that is it necessary to always support a single party!
Every party do things which are good and sometimes bad for common people. As common people we should evaluate those acts from a non biased point of view and give our votes. This should be our responsibility in a democratic country. So lets appreciate good work and criticize bad work of a political party. We are the judge and not the part of a particular political party.
Yesterday we went to ‘Bolpur’. It was a one day trip. ‘Bolpur’ is famous for ‘Santiniketon’. It was established by ‘Maharshi Devendranath Tagore’, and later expanded by his son ‘Rabindranath Tagore’ whose vision became what is now a university town, ‘Visva-Bharati University’.
India is a secular country. There are many religions here. Indians are famous for celebrating festivals from different religions. Christmas is one of our favourite festival. I really like the idea of a Christmas tree. But I never got a chance to create a tree in my home before.
From the last two years we (my family) have managed to create a Christmas tree in our home. It is not very big but not the smallest one. We bought the tree and the accessories to decorate from market in the last year. Then we decorate this ourselves and place it in a table top. We also have used some chain lights around the tree in part of the decoration. Overall it is a small homemade Christmas tree in our home.
‘Eco Park’ is an urban park in New Town Kolkata and the biggest park in India currently. This is conceptualized by Honorable Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee in the year of 2011. If you want to enjoy natural beauty inside a city, then this is the place you should visit. It has different parts. Ecological zone, theme gardens and recreational places.
You can read more about Eco Park in Wiki here.
They have created a new section inside the park. This is called ‘seven wonders’. It has replica of seven wonders of the world in it including Taj Mahal, Great Wall of China, Colosseum etc. They look very real if you visit there. Just like you are seeing all the seven wonders in front of you. I visited the place in Christmas this year and took some pictures there.
