#WordyWednesday #4 – January 2017 – #BarWoWe   A gust of wind howled outside sending a shiver creaking through the window shutters. Muhu peered out of the dirty window pane, squinting against the low visibility at the slivers of light appearing on the horizon now as the weak sun attempted to break through the thick […]

#KashmirTravelDiaries: Gulshan Books

Books galore, Gulshan Gulshan While walking in down town Srinagar, I espied a charming looking book store on Residency road by the name of Gulshan Books, and immediately popped inside to browse as the shop window beckoned me with its beautifully bound tomes.

Every year, the onset of winters brings me to dreaming of seeing snowfall- a childhood wish. This year the hilly regions of Himachal and Kashmir have been seeing more than abundant snowfall as evident from tantalising pictures on FB. To make matters worse, my inner devil decided to chant ” I want to see snowfall!!!!!” […]
