Glimpses From The International Kite Festival 2018, Ahmedabad

Our recent visit to Ahmedabad coincided with the beginning of the International Kite Festival 2018, and we decided to drop in to get a glimpse of the fervour. I got my first-ever taste of the festival that Ahmedabad has been hosting since 1989, and which has made waves in the media especially in the last 4-5 years.

We passed by for a very short while and managed to get only a few glimpses of the festival. Even then, the atmosphere managed to fill our hearts with awe and joy.

Check out my latest post, about our experience at the International Kite Festival 2018.

Most visitors, however, plan only for a brief stop-over at the village, not a stay. Mawlynnong deserves to be stayed in, though, felt, experienced, lived in, loved.

The Other Azhagar Temple In Madurai: Koodal Azhagar Kovil 

I didn’t get a chance to visit the Azhagar Kovil, about 20 km away from Madurai, on our recent trip. I, therefore, didn’t get a chance to partake of the delicious-sounding Azhagar Kovil dosais, the prasadam

That said, we did visit the Koodal Azhagar temple, the other ‘Azhagar Kovil‘ in Madurai, and sampled the ‘dosai’ here. Check out my detailed post about the Koodal Azhagar dosai
