Cuckoo said...

Wow !! Awesome pictures you have captured here. Been to Jaipur but just the city. I don't think I have any photos of that trip.

I am sorry I am late, was traveling.

India is on my "dream list" of countries I'd love to explore. Your photos and essays make me wanto to even more. With India so large, I would have a hard time to decide where I'd like to go. My husband has travelled extensively in India, from the Himalayas to the Seas, so it would be my choice, alas where to? ;-)

I have read quite a frew Indian authors and authors of the Indian dispora, but my favorite book about "the dream of India" is Antonio Tabucchi's "Notturno Indiano" ("Indian Nocturne", the English translation is very good).

A single defining experience of Jaipur you might want to share?

We have been postponing our trip to Rajasthan for a while now. I have sent so many of my American friends there on vacation, but have never managed to visit it yet! :-)

BTW, great pictures!

Thank you for dropping by and I'm glad you liked these pictures. Thanks. :)

Ken,
Hey, thanks. Thank you also for dropping by and I am delighted to know that you find India beautiful. :)

cuckoo:
Thank you. That's fine and I hope you had a good trip. Do post some pictures. :)

merisi:
I’m glad my humble little post inspired you more. I understand your plight, what with India being a sub-continent. If you ask for my views on where to visit, even though I was born in the southern part of India, I'm now biased towards the northern Himalayan mountain areas.

merisi:
And I read a quick revew of 'Indian Nocturne' and sounds like an interesting book. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for your visit Anil. You are the second person this week asking me to write from a different viewpoint and though I had earlier decided to wind up on Jaipur posts, however, I guess I'll try to post something shortly. :)

bradley’s mom:

You have an adorable lil’ grandson. I shall drop by your space shortly. :)

Jeevan,
Thank you. I tasted quite a bit of Rajasthani food - here and in Jaipur. That includes dal, bati churma too. :)

indicaspecies said...

Shantanu,
I hope you get a chance to visit Jaipur soon. Glad you like the pictures, thanks. :)

indicaspecies said...

Michele,
Namaste. Do plan a trip to India and let me know when you do. If I can, will try and join in for a part of the journey, if not all. :)

indicaspecies said...

backpakker:
Thank you. You are right, a trip to Jaipur does not need much planning and I ended up there without making any prior plans. I shall write a little post on it now that Anil has asked me to. :)

Thank you Bradley. Perhaps you recall that you have earlier visited me to check on this link via David’s Authorblog:

I often chuckle at your alternative footnotes at David’s and do pass by your nest on and off. It’s lovely knowing you too. :)

Pijush,
Thank you. Finally it is – that proves how much of a tech-savvy person I am NOT. :)
