My India

Just before Dubai, I was in India! A little context first, in the UK only my mum, dad, brother and I live here, meaning all my family are back in India. So, it was finally time to make a family trip and be reunited with everyone.

This time round, my parents chose to show me more of a rural India, because the last couple of visits have been full of touristy things or just really catching up with all the family friends and relatives. I’m afraid I don’t remember all the names or the routes I took, butΒ what I can tell you is if you need to go from town to town and may seem a little far, hire a taxi or a driver and take the road. You will see a completely different India.

Especially after monsoon season, as all the fields were nourished and green, and the smell of petrichor (the smell you get after it rains after a very hot day aka my favourite smell) was constantly there.

One place I do recommend is Mandu in Madhya Pradesh. It’s a ruin city and not many people know about this place, I definitely didn’t but my grandparents used to take my mum here all the time when she was little. Under her word, we set our way and we do not regret it!

Here are a few of my photos, you’ll see my granddad praying as he does every morning at the same time, my aunt and uncle getting on with their lives and the more rural and rustic India. A monkey, because what is India without wild monkeys stealing from you?

Hope you guys enjoy, and let me know of your adventures in India, or any future plans.

Thanks for reading everybody.

  1. Love the photos.
    Never been to Mandu. But have seen a lot of rural India. The people are so wonderful, warm and welcoming. The only think is a lot of North India is too dusty for my weak sinuses.
    I do hope I will be able to travel there again, though!

      1. The people make all the difference. Right?
        Sooooo welcoming. πŸ™‚
        You are right — there is lots to see. I’ve lived there over half my life, travelled a lot, but haven’t seen half of it.
