Luckily, the guys from Tata Nano had asked me to carry a closed toe shoe for their factory visit and luckily, all my stuff was only in the hand baggage.

How to tie a langot? Learn from a budding Pehalwan!

How to tie a traditional Indian langot?

This was a question asked my many of my readers when they saw my post on Indian wrestling  style  called Kushti. I thought it was quite simple to tie but having never tried it out myself, I decided to ask a young budding pehalwan (traditional Indian wrestler) to demonstrate how it’s done and he happily obliged.

Quarry behind my house

No compound wall proclaimed the boundary. Behind the house was an abandoned quarry, which had, over the years, filled with water and had come to support some aquatic vegetation.
