Arijit Das - IBM Gurgaon - Chai Chillum. Chapatia.., Chalo Parbatia

Finally the afternoon for which we had been waiting anxiously had arrived. We had spent quite some time from the previous week discussing of the trek which we always wanted to do and now was the time when it was going to come true. A weekend coupled with two holidays always seemed to be perfect time to take the plunge.

Though we did not get a seat in the bus which was ready to move, however we did manage to get couple of seats in the next bus which was to leave in 30 minutes. We had enough time to pick some wafers, gums and bottled water but I will recommend travelers to carry it from their houses as ISBT does not give you option on these things and you will have to probably carry the one which is found.

Nushrat Abid - Agilent Technologies, Gurgaon - Ajmer & Pushkar - Royalty Revisited

Sand dunes, wooded hills and amazing lakes, palaces and rugged forts, men and women in colourful turbans and skirts, bustling towns and quiet villages, camels, elephants and tigers, harsh sunlight and the cool evening breeze Rajasthan has it all. Rajasthan is the land of Rajputana of Old. It is the land of brave people with a royal touch in their lifestyle. It is where all the smiles and metaphors appear to have come together. But they form only part of an intricate tapestry.

I have always been intrigued by this diversity in Rajasthan and thus decided to visit Jaipur, Ajmer and Pushkar.

Rajan Shingari - Accenture Gurgaon - Udaipur - The Royal City

We (5 of my friends and me) had to catch the Mewar Express for Udaipur which starts from Nizamudin Station at 7 PM. We had called for a taxi for 5 in the evening. We were quite excited all day in office, waiting to leave for the station. Before we were to leave, the weather took a drastic change and it started to rain heavily. I got a little nervous, thinking of the traffic condition of Delhi in the rains.

We finally left at 5:15 PM from our office and took the shortcut via chattarpur to avoid the traffic. The rain was getting heavier, changing the mood inside the cab melodramatic with every minute. We could hardly see through the front glass (besides the wiper doing its best). We managed to reach the railway station 10 minutes prior to the Departure time.

Saurabh Tiwari - Genpact Gurgaon - Chirmir, Chirmir, Dhoom, Dhadaka Hoo.. Haa.. Hoo.. Haa..
Rishikesh  My love for this place grows stronger, with every next visit. The turquoise green Ganges without even letting you know cleans your body, mind & soul. I feel blessed with peace afterevery dip inThe Ganges.

"Hrishikesh" is a name of Vishnu that means 'lord of the senses'. Rishikesh, a holy city for Hindus is located in the foothills of the Himalaya in northern India. The place gets its name after Lord Vishnu who appeared to 'Raibhya Rishi', as a result of his tapasya (austerities), as Lord Rishikesh.
