In Search of God. . . Vrindavan.

As a Hindu born confused atheist, I from the childhood had been to Vrindavan many times, home of Krishna. When I was kid I use to come here with my parents and grandparents, we use to stay here for couple of days, use to visit and offer prayers in many beautiful temples which are in Vrindavan. Everyone was friendly and spiritual in their own way lost in search of Krishna & Radha. Population or Crowd or Visitors were limited not much, there was space to breath for everyone. There were no hotels there at that time but there were many Ashrams for stay and that was a nice and cheap accommodation. The city, Yamuna Ghats (River side) and Yamuna River were clean and beautiful. I even remember bathing in Yamuna River few times and it was a wonderful experience. Didn’t remember how and when those few days trips turned in to flying visits. In last decade I had been to Vrindavan many times but just went there offered prayer at Banke Bihari Mandir (the main temple of Vrindavan of lord Krishna) and headed back to Jaipur or some other destination.

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary

Big Bird Keoladeo Ghana National Park
First of all I am not a Bird or Wildlife Photographer, Secondly the only reason I went to this place is because my Wife asked me too. It was a short and sweet trip But yes after I visited this place I realized it is a beautiful place for Nature Lovers also (Like Me). I will say if you are a Bird Lover or Wildlife Lover or Nature Lover then you must have to visit this place once, it is a Beautiful place and I will Highly Recommended this place. Remember “I am not a Bird or Wildlife Photographer” so I didn’t had the big guns, I was just carrying 24-105mm lens on Canon 550D body and all these pics are from that only.

Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary” or “Keoladeo National Park” or “Keoladeo Ghana National Park” is a man made bird sanctuary which is spread in 29 square Km and is 180km from Jaipur near Bharatpur on the Jaipur – Agra highway. There were more than 400 spices of Birds there but for me mostly there were three kind of birds Small birds, Medium size birds and Big birds. There were many different kind of Small and Big animals also in the Sanctuary.

The Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary remains open round the year from sunrise to sunset.

आज कल पाँव जमीं पर नही पड़ते मेरे . . .

आज कल पाँव जमीं पर नही पड़ते मेरे,
बोलो देखा है कभी तुमने मुझे उड़ते हुए?

आज जबसे इस लम्हे को मैंने अपने कैमरे मैं कैद किया हे बस तभी से ये दो पंक्तियाँ गुनगुनाये जा रहा हूँ।
