The Beach

Watching The Sunrise

Title: Watching the Sunrise
Location: Kalapatthar Beach, Andaman Islands, India

Clicked at one of the most magical places to witness a sunrise – The Kalapatthar Beach (The Blackstone Beach) of Havelock Island in Andamans. Thousand of stones, black in colour, are spread across floor of this sandy beach. Imagine watching the sun rising from the distant horizon while being perched on one such stone.

SR Travel Tip: While Kalapatthar is a sunrise beach, make sure to watch the sunset from the world renowned Radhanagar beach of Andaman (Pics here). Also, try Garlic Butter prawns at Anju Coco while you’re there!

Lama, renunciation

Little lama and a lesson on renunciation

Title: Little Lama and a Lesson on Renunciation
Location: Ladakh, India

While exploring the Hemis monastery, I ran into this young man. Instantly, my hands whipped out my camera, thinking about how good his red robes would look against the white. But he shook his face in anger and turned away. But as I stowed away my camera, he beckoned. He simply took the chocolate I held in my other hand and asked me to proceed with the photo.

So, by renouncing a bar of chocolate I managed to click this image.

SR Travel Tip: Don’t plan a trip to Ladakh which doesn’t have Pangong Tso in the itinerary. You could enjoy amazing street food in Leh, but if you want to have a sit-down dinner, head to Gesmo or Bon Appetit.

When I found the eyes searching for me

When I found the eyes searching for me

Title – When I found the Eyes Searching for me
Location – Manali, India 

On a bus ride from Manali to Chandigarh, as usual I was trying to capture the countryside which stretched and yawned outside my window. That’s when I realised that this young lady had been trying to catch my eye for a while, hoping to get clicked. Nowadays, I don’t just stare out of the window.

SR Travel Tip: While backpacking across Manali, don’t forget to check out the Old Manali region. SlowRover recommends Johnson’s Cafe for eating out in Manali.
