This was my first ever visit to Delhi. First ever train journey, covering 2,444 kilometres. This was/is one of the fastest train journey from Dibrugarh (state of Assam) to New Delhi
Travel. Traveling. The motion of going ~ into something new, into something unknown
Travel. With a few precious items, that belongs to you, sometimes a note, a picture and memory of past days
Or thinking of memories that you will make ahead
I like the traveling soul. It just wanders, doesn’t expect anything doesn’t say anything
Sometimes a sudden pull, shakes you and you close your eyes ~ thinking of the good times ahead
Traveling. I keep my family close, the laughter and talks that surrounds happy thoughts
Love. Food, lazying around and of course sleep
On reaching Delhi, it was foggy.
Delhi during winters, is foggy.
In spite of the fog, we decide to travel to see the Taj (Delhi to Agra via road after reaching Delhi)
Another 5 hours by road to the city of Agra in Uttar Pradesh. The city of the Taj Mahal.
As a kid I had a curious mind. But curiosity revolved around the past. History was my favorite topic.
And I had heard about the Taj in my classroom. I had seen a miniature of it, sitting in our guest room
On arriving at the monument, the fog disappeared and I could see a structure shining very brightly under the winter sun
It was beautiful. Better and grandeur then the miniature at home
Experience at the Taj
I touched the white marble. So pure and serene. “I have been to the Taj Mahal – I have seen one of the seven wonders of the world”
It felt good.
Here is a picture of me at the Taj.
Here is a little secret ~ I didn’t like being photographed as a kid. I would find ways to run out of the frame.
But thanks to cellphones and selfies, I do not do that anymore 🙂
Happy Travels everyone
