India: A World of Experiences

Posted in India, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 26, 2010

The entire globe is aware of the uniqueness of India that is part of the Asian continent. Though it has not succeeded at becoming a developed nation till date, it has found its way to the top as one of the BRICK countries.

Though poverty prominently exists in this country it is still rich in culture and heritage. It can survive for itself as it produces a myriad variety of crops on its fertile land. Everyone has realized what India is, but the sad part still remains-  The people of India still haven’t realized what a hero it has been and how it can can benefit us ‘Indians’ in the future.

Geographically- India is beautiful. It allows you to witness all kinds of landforms and climatic conditions.

East west, north, south and central Indioa provides the traveller with special divided experiences. Although India as a country is too small to hold the different unique aspects of the entire world, it still does… You can experience the deserts of Arabia in Rajasthan, a mini Canada in Kashmir, a Hawaii on Goa, the Amazone in the south-east, an Africa in north-east India or of course, even a lively New York > Mumbaikar style!

Mumbai: ___________

Posted in India, Maharashtra, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 19, 2010

 

Call Mumbai whatever you want. Its a city full of opportunities, glamour, poverty, niceness as well as luck. Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay is the capital of Maharashtra. 

It is the second most populous city in the world and the biggest city in INDIA. Mumbai makes dreams come true and is also known as the Alpha City. Thus it has the guts to survive by itself. After all..it is part of one of the BRICK countries. Tourists are always amazed at the mix of ideas, styles, food, religion and people they get to meet here. 

Mumbai is an archipelago of 7 islands…. (Even we ‘Mumbaikars’ couldn’t believe that as kids). These islands were- Bombay Island, Parel, Mazagaon, Mahim, Colaba, Worli and Old Woman’s Island also known as Little Colaba. According to archaelogists these islands were inhabited since the Stone Age. 

The city and the suburbs form 2 distinct revenue areas of this island city and the Bandra-Worli sea-link connects the two. 

You can’t get enough of this city- not now… never! 

Online travel bookings to Mumbai are easily available at http://www.travellerszoo.com/# .

What came 1st..Easter or the EGG?

Posted in Easter, India, Uncategorized by Sharon Pinto on March 17, 2010

I just happend to take a sneak peek at the origin of Easter eggs.. Where did they come from from? Who in the world started this?

    Well, according to my sources an egg is a symbol of life and friendship not only in Christianity but in many cultures… Not just eggs made of chocolate and marzipan, but the actual salted kind. the Easter Egg tradition began in spring. Some say that was the time when Christ rose from the dead. Some also say that Mary Magdalene went to the court of the Roman Empire with an egg, which symbolized to her that Christ was risen. The Emperor didn’t believe her. He laughed and said- someone rising from the dead  was as likely as the egg in her hand turning red.   Of course, that is exactly what happened:  the egg turned red and she continued to proclaim the good news to the imperial household.     Nobody knows the real origination of this ancient festival of passing on eggs as goodwill. But this tradition is alive till today. It’s either the strength of the tradition that has kept it alive, or the toothy taste of the so called ‘Easter Egg’…
