Wish you all a Very Happy (Choti) Diwali!! 🙂 Today is also “World Kindness Day”!! The pandemic has affected all of us, so let’s remember to be kind to each other! Wishing you Joy, Happiness, and Prosperity this Diwali!!
A week ago, I was feeling terribly depressed after enduring months of Covid19 restrictions and bad news. So, I finally ventured out for a short break. Made sure that everyone around me and I wore masks, sanitized often, and kept a strict social distance. We booked a room in the most isolated corner of the hotel, never used the restaurant, and only ordered room service. Despite all that, it turned out to be an amazing experience! Ours was the only occupied room on the first floor and we had the entire corridor to ourselves. 🙂 Even this restricted holiday was so effective that I felt like I’d been hit by a ton of antidepressants! So glad that I ventured out.
Here are some pics from Balaram Palace – a heritage resort in Palanpur, Gujarat. It was the erstwhile hunting lodge of the Nawab of Palanpur, has beautiful architecture, and is surrounded by forests. The terraced garden and views are lovely. Many films and TV serials have been shot here… overall an awesome experience in a romantic and historical place. We’re so lucky that India offers such exclusive travel experiences. Have a Wonderful Diwali!!
