|The Jagmandir Island - floating in midst of the lake|
the ferry dropped us here and then we never wanted to leave.
While we sat watching the mainland, the hill lined lake side lazing
under the peace and quiet afternoon sun.
|The pool at the palace I was staying in|
and if u think it's lovely by the day, It just turns magical by the night
I lay counting stars at night,
watching the night grow older, quieter
while I grew calmer within.
I went for a work trip to Udaipur, in Rajasthan, India for a couple of days. A beautiful town situated around three main lakes Udaisagar, Fateh Sagar and Lake Picola. Known as the 'Venice of East' It did live up to the description it has been adorned with.
It turned out to be a smashing fun trip as I and my friend Jacob, decided to explore the city on our own, walking it's streets (with a little help of helpful locals and internet) we discovered that the city had more than just stone palaces to offer, in terms of folk art, innovative ideas and experiences.
For three days, I broke free from the usual rush of life, and lived life in slow motion, holding on to each moment that came by, savoring each moment while it lasted before moving into the next. For three days I walked mesmerized by the beautiful city with it's majestic palaces, lakes, island hotel, moonlight lake view diners, peaceful lakeside afternoons and magical sunsets.
While we were mostly too busy capturing the moments and imprinting them as memories on the film of our minds, we did manage to capture a few as photographs on the lens of our camera. Here are a few
|And not to be left behind,|
the city began lightening up, to match up with the sunset with it's grandeur
while we just stood by as The Enchanted Spectators
|And if u think it were only the nights that were magical|
the days were no less, it was a magic of different kind.
This was a puppet show we attended, amateur but not bad with the music and dance.
|This was just plain hilarious, at a cultural haat on the outskirts of Udaipur, showcasing different|
dance forms that Rajasthan has to offer
|The Aghori Dance|
|Taran taal another amazing dance form of Rajasthan|
The palace and it's beauties, the windows, the gateways, the beautiful glass work in and around.
|This was terrifying, trust me it was one hell of a scary ride|
I'm done with camel rides for a lifetime now.
