A Visit to Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba

Sometimes planning a trip to some nearby place can be little boring. What do you think? Well, I experienced this because we just made plans but those plans were just plans, they lacked proper execution. But I always love unplanned journeys. As my Kathmandu trip was fully unplanned one, there’s a lot to explore always. Yeah, there are some limitations and it is wise to plan your trip. So, I have been planning for visiting Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba for a long time. I haven’t been there. I visited the old streets of Chandani Chauk, the Paranthe Wali Gali which is considered to the heaven for parantha lovers, but Amrik Sukhdev Dhaba was still pending. They say if you are parantha lover, these two places are your favorite and a regular destination. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XZGb1PK-qLo&t=6s T...

First Day at Rishikesh

So, finally we reached Rishikesh at around 5:30AM. It was a long journey and we were literally tired of travelling in bus. We were about to start our first day at Rishikesh but we all wanted to take some rest, or better to say some sleep. We went to a shop on bus stand to have some refreshment. We ordered Maggie. And we were offered three plates after some time. The Maggie was enough for us to stand and move. We were kind of hungry too so this served a good food. We came out of the shop. A man came and talked to Tanuj. He was an auto driver. There, the auto drivers have connections with the travel agents. Tanuj talked and asked for a fair deal for four of us, which he at first spoke of some higher prices. Thus Tanuj had to deny. The man later on asked him to talk to the concerned person...

From Border to the Country’s Capital

So, the journey from the capital of India came to the border of Nepal. Now our next step was to get the bus to the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu. We reached Sonauli in the morning and crossed the border from here, the Indo – Nepal Border. After crossing the border and entering the land of Nepal, we planned to get fresh and have some light breakfast. Our team leader was quick and active. He went to the bus booking office and got our tickets. We had our breakfast, washed our faces which went dull and dried due to long journey. I went to the currency exchange office and got INR changed in to Nepali currency. As we were no longer in India and we couldn’t do with INR in Nepal. Though we were told that Nepalese do accept INR as well, but still we needed Nepali currency. Moreover it’s always good...

Across the Borders

The bus which we took from Gorakhpur to Sanauli, reached Sanauli in the morning. It took around three hours to reach the place. There we had to cross the border. I saw the place. A huge gate! Military was standing, this side Indian, the other side Nepalese. It was nothing like the border which I have seen in the movies. It destroyed my imagination of what a border could look like. We have been watching country borders since our childhood. We imagined that it would look like iron fences, sand and stones, army would ambush somewhere, headquarters and so many other things. But at the Indo - Nepal border, there was nothing like that. Moreover, someone told me going to Nepal is not considered to be international, it is not a foreign territory. Whatever it was, it was all good to see the relatio...

From Unplanned to the Never Planned

Nepal Diary is a whole lot story of unplanned events. Some events were so amazing and we experienced the things which were never planned that some moments, things would turn out this way. So what happened and what was this from unplanned to never planned events? Here I have described the things at best of my memories. Though not completely, still I try to remember every little detail and will sketch out the description. Here it goes from Unplanned to the Never Planned! I was all alone sitting in my room. The clock showed 9 in the morning. I was still in the bed, as it was really cold outside and wanted to sleep more due to tiring work of previous night. Soon, a friend Dinesh called me up on my phone. He asked me to recharge his mobile phone as he was going somewhere. I said okay and we...
