My First Guest Post


A couple of months back, I had got an invitation from George of OneTravel (offering cheap tickets) to do a guest post on his blog. And today it's going live! I am so excited to have it being published!! I am anxious too, to know your feedback.

The article is on one of my trips to Rishikesh, a Spiritual town in India.


Here’s a small preview of what I wrote

The city life had strained me out! The deafening commotions of a fast paced life, the buzz, the clamour… you know what I am talking about… its happened to you too! I wanted to run off from the daily drudgery to some place which could help me unburden this stress and fill me with calm and joy….

So please Click Here (I am sorry, this link is no longer active but you can click this link instead to read more on Rishikesh on my blog) right now to read the entire featured post.

Happy Reading!

  2. This is the best writing I have read from you yet! I love the way you included The Beatles and the sages, just to give others an idea of where this is. And that bridge, I had to enlarge it! It looks so modern in a country such as this! Quite out of place in such a timeless place. So it is only a walking bridge, no vehicles? It is so long for a walking brideg, I've never seen anything quite like it. In this country, many people are supersticious about the number 13, seeing it as a bad omen, and many buildings skip the 13th floor. Your writing is descriptive and spiritual, yet kept me so interested. How cool that you were asked to do this, they picked the right person!!

  12. Hey, we got a request from George as well, but when I went to the website, it appears that Wordpress has taken it down for a violation of the TOS. How long did it take from the time that you sent him the article until it was published?

    Thanks!

  15. @ S Krishnamurthy Thank you for the kind appreciation :-)

    Best time to go acc. to me would be: Near its closing dates somewhere around October. During this time, the rains subside and the rush decreases so that we can have a peaceful darshan.

    Please have a look at some tips that you can keep in mind while planning your trip to the place - Tips for planning to Gangotri and Badrinath

    Wish you a wonderful journey to the Himalayas. :-)
