An Epicurean Experience in Nimaj

Image

ImageImageImage

In days gone by, pursuits and campaigns as well as hunts and travels involved tenting en route. Rajasthan’s harsh climate made the locals develop these tents into comfortable shelters and they found the choicest of locations to set them up. Chhatra Sagar Camp in Nimaj (between the cities of Jaipur and Jodhpur) is a celebration of the era and captures the essence of the romance. Built atop a century old reservoir, overlooking a lake visited by migratory birds, Chattra Sagar Camp has an unbeatable location! The Rajasthani food served here is organic, fresh, grown in own fields and deliciously cooked. Start with a tour of farmlands and then end up in the spotless kitchen where the ladies of the house give you a live demonstration of cooking, which is subsequently served during the meal.

Puducherry & its French Quarters

Image

With its seafront promenade, wide boulevards, enduring pockets of French culture and architecture, and a popular ashram, charming Puducherry – whose name officially changed from Pondicherry in October 2006 – is unlike anywhere else in South India. That’s hardly surprising – the former French colony was settled in the early 18th century as a colonial enclave and it retains a mildly Gallic air superimposed on a typical Indian background. Heritage houses to rent, authentic French restaurants, organic perfumes, a thriving international community… Puducherry feels like a corner of Paris transplanted to the shores of Tamil Nadu. From eco-conscious architecture and local design labels that are adapting regional handicraft to modern tastes, Puducherry’s residents are leading its evolution as a destination for the evolved traveller.

Coorg, Coffee & Kodavas

Image
Spread out across the Western Ghats, the misty vales of Coorg with its capital Madikeri, was once the throne of the Kodava kings. The valley is unsullied, beautiful, green, and exciting with the lovely blue Sahyadari Mountains, dense forested valleys, gurgling mountain streams and waterfalls. It is the land of coffee bushes resplendent with red berries, cardamom fields covered with white and purple blossoms, old silver oak trees laden with huge hives, and of a sturdy handsome people called the Coorgis who charm by their hospitality and cuisine, their intriguing customs and the reverence with which they worship their river, the Cauvery.

Kolkata- “City of Joy”

Image

Calcutta, the capital of West Bengal, is a sophisticated, charming and friendly city, that belies its popular image as poverty-stricken and chaotic. The city was home to one of the world’s most famous figures, Mother Teresa. Calcutta has some of the country’s finest remnants of British colonial architecture; the great open expanse of the Maidan, Fort William, the white edifice of the Victoria Memorial and the Palladian villas are all symbols of the British Raj when Calcutta was the Indian Capital. Dalhousie Square, with its 18th-century Writers’ Building and modern high rises, and Chowringhee, with its glittering shops and restaurants, hotels and cinemas, are all British in temperament. But in old North Calcutta, in the busy streets of Shambazar and at the Kali temple at Kalighat, the city’s personality is still distinctly Bengali. Calcutta has a rich cultural, intellectual and political heritage and Bengali theatre is amongst the finest in India.
