mount-abu-delhifundos-cover

Mount Abu is the only hill station in Rajasthan. We found Mount Abu to be a very activity oriented hill station. There are temples, sunset points, forests, trekking, shopping options, a lake, heritage places and options galore. Even in the month of June an excellent weather made this trip very pleasant and memorable for us.

Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is arguably the most performed play in the world. In an era of male domination, this play charts the journey of a housewife, living under the shadows of her father and husband. It was disappointing that the theatre group made a shoddy show of this classic.

T’pot Cafe, Malviya Nagar looks like a set from a KJo film – florescent color walls, guitars for decor etc. Thronged by college kids mostly, its a very noisy place almost like a college canteen. We ordered basic stuff like Masala ginger tea and muffin and liked it.

In a decadent Hungarian luxury hotel Ralph Fiennes, the concierge “Gustav M” befriends rich lonely widows, creates a special bond with them and they keep coming back fore more…and then there’s a murder, a stolen painting, a prison break, chase and the works.
