Eve, of whom I had written about in an earlier post, played sweet havoc in my mind once again today. 'Eve' was the name given to a woman who had walked along a shore in South Africa after a rain-storm 117,000 years ago. Her footprints had fossilized until they were discovered in 1995. For the second time this year, I found myself in Bhimbhetka, marveling at the ancient cave paintings that deck the rock shelters here. Some paintings were made by men and women who had lived through adventures - they depicted close encounters with sinister beasts , scenes of warfare and hunts. Some others I gathered, were by children who etched squiggly elephants and cats. I imagined the young falling asleep beside their mothers 40,000 years ago, peering up starry-eyed at the paintings on their low ceilings illumined by a dying flame; bedtime stories they could touch and feel with an outstretched arm as they laid down... An earth pigment called 'Ochre' was used to create these paintings. The same pigment that Eve was thought to have worn when she roamed the African coast. If our origins lie in Africa, then I imagine that all the knowledge and life-practices of Eve and her people were carried to distant shores, wherever so 'Man' arrived. Most certainly in Bhimbhetka. Standing 117,000 years too far, I felt distant and yet intimately, affectionately, physically drawn toward Eve in the same moment... As I stood beneath this ochre-speckled tapestry decorated by my elders, I realised 'Eve' was in all of us. #Eve #outofeden

Loneliness is like this sea: At first it hits you hard , right on your face, like those waves in this ocean .

I went to see the doctor, I'd come down with the blues She said that "I can't cure you, but here's something you could do Take out a piece of paper and go sit down for a while And draw a pretty picture of something that makes you smile" Well, I know what makes me happy, I didn't have to think for long But when I tried to draw it, it always came out wrong I had a box of 12, 48, and 64 But nowhere could I find that one shade I was looking for I guess I realized, shoulda come as no surprise Crayons doesn't make a color for your eyes There is no way that I could possibly describe you Crayola doesn't make a color to draw my love No color to draw my love 🙋 . #love #indigolove #naturalcolours #naturaldye #beautifulwomen #shoptillyoudrop #sareelove #sareedraping #summeraccessories #summerwear #dressmaterial #womensfashion #womenaccessories #womenbloggers #sareenotsorry #ethnicwear #handmade #soulfulartists #artisan #sustainableclothing #sustainablefashion #ruralindia #ecofriendlyproducts #ecofriendly #ecodye #womenoftoday #indiastories

#tbt. Day 04 , we passed the turn off towards lingshed and then we were alone. Unbroken ice stretched out in front of us for miles and walking through this stunning canyon accompanied by only the sound of your footsteps was totally next level.

🇮🇳 India nearly killed my girl 😥 Story time! Part 5/? Whilst waiting for a feast of veg talhi, birriani, and beer, sonu appeared. His bright eyes and beaming smile greeted us from the darkness of the staircase. Hugs and names were exchanged. It wasn't long until Sonu insisted we leave the resturant and head to his house to see his family and eat his wife's cooking. We politely declined as we were pretty full mid way through our meal, but he would not take no for an answer. "my wife, she is cooking for us, we must go". We were all a little thrown off but sonu was desperate to be a good host. We had no choice, Indian hospitality is so incredibly welcoming that its impossible to reject. We followed sonu through the dark, narrow alleys, until we came to his house. A large concrete building with brightly painted walls, decorated with hindu gods. The building homed multiple families and each family owned a single room. Sonus' wife, brother and children greeted us with smiles and laughter upon entering. We were ushered to their room and made comfortable. We spent hours laughing, conversating with hand gestures and the occasional word of Hindi. Sonus' wife cooked a beautiful egg, spinach and potato curry. We're we fed until we could not eat any more. In Indian culture the guests must be fed first, and fed until full. Only then can the hosts begin to share what is left over. Sonu's beautiful family always treat me with love and welcome arms. We left after midnight and returned to the hostel, agra awaited us the next morning. #olddelhi #paharganj #hospitallity #indianculture #indianhost #curry #welcoming #oldfriend #travelphotography #travellingwithmylove  #natgeophotos #natgeotravel #Indiastories #streetfood #juice #sunset #holi #Indiaadventure #krishnacafe #Indianfood #krishna #delhi #travelphoto #travelblogger #travelandlife #storytelling #storytime #Indiaphotography #adventures #adventure

🇮🇳 India nearly killed my girl 😥 Story time! Part 4/? Helena, Tim and I regathered the next afternoon. I had a friend who lived locally who I wanted them to meet. We were all feeling a little under the weather adapting to the new environment, so planned to chill, have some food and enjoy a few cans of "king fisher". We agreed to meet sonu at my favourite resturant. Krishnas cafe. A beautifully set, rooftop resturant that scaled the side of a building and over looked the craziness that is Paharganj. The staff and I where on a first name basis and they welcome us with open arms. We ordered some food whilst we waited for Sonu to arrive. #olddelhi #paharganj #bazaar #travelphotography #travellingwithmylove  #natgeophotos #natgeotravel #natgeo #Indiastories #streetfood #juice #sunset #holi #Indiaadventure #krishnacafe #Indianfood #krishna #delhi #travelphoto #travelblogger #travelandlife #storytelling #storytime #Indiaphotography #India #adventures #adventure #worldtraveler

I do believe in an everyday sort of magic -- the inexplicable connectedness we sometimes experience with places, people, works of art and the like; the eerie appropriateness of moments of synchronicity; the whispered voice, the hidden presence, when we think we're alone.

The Imperial Gazetteer states that it was erected by Mahmud Khvaja Gavan, the celebrated minister of the Bahamanis. A little later, after the disintegration of the Bahamani kingdom it became a part of the kingdom of Ahmadnagar. #maharashtradesha #maharashtra_ig #ig_maharashtra #insta_maharashtra #travellingram #maharashtra_desha #india_ig #maharashtra_igers #streetsofmaharashtra #traveller #_maharashtraclickers_ #maharashtrag_forts #beautifulmaharashtra #indianphotography #indiastories #indiashutterbugs #wanderlust #phodus_competition #igramming_india #incredibleindia #travelphotography

We are not living in a world where all roads are radii of a circle and where all, if followed long enough, will therefore draw gradually nearer and finally meet at the centre: rather in a world where every road, after a few miles, forks into two, and each of those into two again, and at each fork, you must make a decision . .

PHONE CLICK That feeling when you are walking towards the beach after months nd you know that you are about to witness that endless expanse of water. Yes , that feeling is great. Anyone else felt the same? Beaches always made me feel how small we are infront of this creation. I started connecting to beaches recently bcoz of sole reason that all life existing on this planet came from this sea. .

Two imposing gateways lead to the main hall.

Jaisalmer (10/?) . . My version of dancing is bobbing around in one place - enthusiastically but woe-is-me, not gracefully. I always feel rooted to the ground. So I wonder what it must be like to be a dancer like this one...electric, shimmering, weightless. . . (68/365)

Here I am with with the Dhamek Stupa. It was completed in 500 CE and is believed to have replaced an older structure built by Samrat Asoka in 249 BCE. It is the place where Buddha spread his teachings to his first five disciples after having attained enlightenment. . My top reasons to travel to any place are history, spiritual connections, and old architecture. New constructions don't really appeal to me. Being here was an emotional experience, and walking through these grounds made me cry more than once. . . . #sarnath #ruins #stupa #pillar #buddha #buddhism #hindu #history #architecture #spiritual #travel #travelling #traveldiaries #travelphotography #travelphotos #incredibleindia #indiadiaries #indiastories #myindia #colorsofIndia #misstraveller #bonvoyage #vacation #holiday #igers #igers_india

Its 5.30am, I'm driving and the sun is slowly coming up illuminating the otherwise pitch black surroundings. Suddenly my friends exclaim and they ask me to slow down and look at the side.. And what I see is totally breathtaking! A small tip of rock peaking from the clouds. The clouds slowly scatter, revealing an oddly shaped mountain! The moment was so beautiful. I decided to park the car at a nice vantage point and that's when this picture was clicked! PS: I wish I could have changed the location of the car, but then my friends would have killed me for wasting time 😅 PPS: Enroute Pondicherry #pondicherry #travel #tarveldiaries #instastory #instatravel #discover_india #india_undisovered #tamilnadu #tamilnadutourism #natgeotravelpic #natgeotravel #nature #misty #sunrise #mountains #selfdrive #drivezy #moments #magic #indiatourism #ngtdailyshot #myworldthroughlens #indiastories #wphofficial #yourclicks_india #iiframe #movingcompass #ig_india #ig_travel

If you are in Varanasi, then you must visit Baba Kinaram Ashram. It has a small pond where, it is believed, if you take a dip then all the negative that surrounds you is left behind. So go wearing a pair of clothes that you are ready to leave behind, and carry a small towel with you, along with a fresh pair of clothes. Take a few dips, take Mahadev's name and pray with all your heart. Then walk away towards the changing areas, change (clothes.. Not that easy to change oneself), and walk out without looking back. There's a big pile here for old clothes. . Here's me, after the dip. . . . #kashi #banaras #varanasi #god #experiences #spiritual #peaceful #god #goodlord #lordshiva #holydip #holycity #travel #travelling #traveldiaries #travelphotography #travelphotos #incredibleindia #indiadiaries #indiastories #myindia #colorsofIndia #misstraveller #bonvoyage #vacation #holiday #igers #igers_india

💙☂️🌱 it’s the kind of weather that always takes me back to 17 cherry tree lane. Anyone binged on Mary Poppins while growing up? Mumbai and London have the most diverse sets of ways but commonalities that patch them together so poetically. Need a trip to the London lanes soon! Meanwhile let’s keep working on those postdoc applications #phdlife #fromwhereisit
