I have been awarded the Liebster Blog Award by a kind-hearted friend, philosopher, poet and writer – Mahesh. Long time since an award came by my way – so, I am grabbing it with both hands
There are questions I need to answer as a part of this award-receiving ceremony. Here you go -
1. Can a man & a woman just remain friends?
It depends on the age/maturity of the involved ppl. If one is a teenager or has the maturity-level of a teenager, they might find it difficult to be just friends. Continue reading
Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam (TTD) is planning to give one extra laddu for pilgrims walking up to Tirumala hill (12 KM from Alipiri), instead of driving up. But why?
“This was with a view to encouraging the age-old practice of traditional way of reaching a sacred place, temple sources told PTI here today,” reports DH.
The good thing about India is that, it has a large number of English speaking population and this number is increasing. No matter where you go in India, you are bound to meet people who will know English (at least to a certain degree), making communication easy in India. However there are certain sections of the Indian society who do not know any English at all and this is where Hindi, the most popular language spoken by a majority of Indians, will come in handy.

I hope you have noticed the new theme on my blog – It’s the Twenty Thirteen theme by WordPress. I saw this theme in action elsewhere and I was impressed with its capabilities. The sheer number of post-formats it supports will enable me to share much more than I am currently doing, and I intend to make full use of it. I love the rendering of the font in this theme, as well.
I am going to steer this blog in a new direction from today onward. Continue reading
**Identity = **Personality, in the context of this post.
I insist on signing-off using the name, ‘Destination Infinity’ not only because I want it to become popular, but also because my online identity is vastly different from my offline identity (Rajesh K). I am myself surprised on how my online identity has grown its own wings and has developed its own character and personality – In short, I am faking my online identity, which is very different from my offline identity. Continue reading
Disclaimer: I am a man, not a woman.
You must be wondering, why is this guy suddenly so concerned about the safety of foreign women coming to India?? Well, there is a reason for it – I’ll tell you at the end of this article
First, I need to tell you about what kind of safety measures I follow, while going on trips. Continue reading
I think, I am facing one of the *biggest* DILEMMAS on EARTH – KINDLE (vs) TABLET!
Though I have a pile of unread (physical) books, I find myself reading more eBooks these days! In India, I guess we have three good options for buying eBooks – Amazon.in, Google Play & Flipkart. Do let me know if there are any others.
It is difficult for me to read eBooks on my computer/browser (which is what I am doing these days), because I generally use books as a *diversion* activity – to GET AWAY from WORK. With physical books, it’s comfortable to lie down over 2/3 pillows, hold the book in hand and read it for sometime (say 30-45 minutes). Continue reading
I guess you should have read why I blog, but do you know how I started blogging? That is what I am going to tell in this post
Once upon a time…*Too much* Ok, a few years back I was generally *clueless* on what to do on weekends, and I used to visit some friends place in the little time that I was not sleeping. One day, one of my friends suddenly decided to show me his blog. Until then, I was not aware of what a blog was. Continue reading
Many of us like to travel occasionally, don’t we? Frankly, I was never a travel-enthusiast but the travel bug bit me quite suddenly. Since I had a blog and the blog needed updates, I started traveling around my place so that I can update my blog!! That might be one of the strangest reason to travel, but let us try to understand and explore why people (in general) want to travel.
Traveling to new places gives people happiness and satisfaction. We can enjoy new landscapes, scenery; get familiar with new cultures, new people; escape the routine drudgery/familiarity of daily life, daily work; boast to our colleagues/relatives about the latest place we visited, how much we spent on that trip., etc. Continue reading
Since I self-published my eBook, ‘Happiness Guide For Tourists Visiting India: 50 Exciting Things To Do’, I am in charge of the marketing campaign of the book as well!! Writing a book is one thing, but reaching it to the right people at the right time is another thing altogether.
My ‘Plan A’ is to write guest posts in other blogs on some Indian Tourism related topics.
Here are three guest posts I have written recently. If any of the topics interest you, you can go ahead and read them – Continue reading
