This quote is quite realistic. No year is special unless you make it special. It is upto you how you choose to live and what decisions you make. Some things in life are inevitable and some are mere coincidence, no matter how much you try you cannot prevent them. So learn to embrace your life.
Mahalaxmi Temple Mumbai : Mahalaxmi Temple and Haji Ali are prominent tourist locations in Worli. Both these places are located on an island. Devotees from all over Maharashtra make sure to visit the temple atleast once a year. The Darga at Haji Ali is known to be wish fulfilling. People come from far and wide with this belief.
Meditation and yoga are what make me glee of my own fellowship. It is the pillar of my solace journey. Though the timeless culture and allure of Jaisalmer always dwells in me, I am perpetually prepared to explore the same in other ends too. India is stuffed with countless overwhelming places. My train travel journey from Jaisalmer to Mumbai was the portrayal of undying traditional Jaisalmer to ever-changing trends of Mumbai. This scrupulous thought was exciting me even more than ever.
My journey was segmented into two routes. First, from Jaisalmer to Jodhpur by JSM JU Express and then I fetched the evening train from Jodhpur to Bandra Terminus Mumbai via Surya Nagri Express. It was cool in the morning when I was packing for my date with Mumbai. JSM JU Express departed at 11.30 pm and I bid farewell to my birth city for a while. There was no time to think of anything as the night passed in a wink of an eye.
The train was on full move to reach Jodhpur the next morning without any delay. Travelling through train has always been the challenging part of my isolated journey. And I have defeated it number of times. Being a girl of 24 my dreams are quiet high and so is my contribution to fulfill it. I believe the life is all about dreaming, living and fulfilling, rest I leave on my deity. Landing on the Jodhpur station with welcoming breezy air was totally a new experience for me. Without thinking much I arrived at Heritage Kuchaman Haveli Jodhpur to take a few hours rest. The hotel was pre-booked by my friend for me. It was merely done to catch my evening train to Mumbai. Embodiment of hospitality with my religion as the base, the hotel is ideal to understand my very own culture with profundity.
The day passed staring the excellent hotel and I got recharged to fetch my train from Mumbai in the evening. My train travel journey via JSM JU Express, Surya Nagri Express with a little bit of rest in the Heritage Kuchaman Haveli Jodhpur provided me an opportunity to meet the cultures of the three cities at a time. The next afternoon I was there to hit Mount Mary Church Bandra Mumbai.

Kumhrar Patna : I love visiting historical places and that love for history is what took me to Kumhrar in Patna. It is the place where you can find the remains of Patliputra. I loved visiting and watching the remains of the Mauryan period. I enjoyed the visit completely and learned a lot about the Mauryan history.
When at Patna, I went to have a visit to the Mahatma Gandhi Setu, which is a bridge that connected Patna in the south of Bihar to Hajipur in the north of Bihar. It is regarded as the longest man made bridge across a river in the world and is 5.6 km long. It was inaugurated in 1982 by Mrs. Indira Gandhi, who was the prime minister of India at that time. Before the bridge was constructed, people had to cross the river by boat or streamers to reach from Patna to Hijapur. The bridge is also called Ganga Setu.
I saw that it was very impressive with two lane roadway and footpath on either side. The roads were 7.5 m wide and the footpath was 2 m wide. The bridge was spread over 45 pilers. I was told that the bridge was built by Gammon India Limited and the cost amounted to Rs. 87 crore. Presently the bridge is a part of National Highway 19. The bridge reflects the engineering skills of India and is a wonderful structure, which took a decade to complete. It started in 1972 and was completed in 1982.
I saw that the bridge was full of traffic running in opposite directions. Some people were walking along the footpath and some were standing at the rail, having a look at the river. I got down from the cab and stood at the footpath seeing that the river looked very wide and deep. I wondered how the bridge was constructed on such a large river. The cool breeze blowing was very refreshing and I stood there enjoying the coolness of it.
As it was evening, many people were walking on the footpath just for the fun of it. Soon it was time for the sunset and I saw that the sun turned in to a red glowing ball. It was a beautiful sight and the water glowed red in the light of the sun. As the sun went down, lights came up on the bridge all through its length, making it even more beautiful. I had a ride on the bridge and then reached my hotel by 7.00 pm.
Ghugni : I knew of Ghugni as an Eastern snack but never knew it was famous in Patna too. We had the dish from one of the roadside stalls. It was an impeccable snack, spicy just as I like it. I even took the extra effort to learn the recipe of this dish.
The Panache Hotel Patna : I wonder why my friends keep praising The Panache Hotel, Patna. I hope to discover it in my next trip to Patna. I hope it is something beyond the rich décor that are displayed in Google images. A hotel should be homely and liveable. Luxury is secondary but people do not realise this.
