We all keep cribbing about pollution of all kinds from air pollution to noise pollution each and every day of our lives. With many of India’s cities in the top 10 most polluters on the planet, we are used to smoky air for breathing and noise many decibels higher than what our ear drums are generally used to hearing.

There have been numerous awareness campaigns and initiatives to reverse or stop polluting the surroundings. From planting trees to using renewable energy like wind energy, hydroelectric power, solar energy and nuclear power, from using public transport to the odd – even car policy in Delhi, there’s a lot which has been done for our future generations to breathe clean air and live a life free from all the noise around us.

Microblog Mondays: Travel motivation

I recently watched two travel videos of places which are as different as chalk and cheese and poles apart quite literally in terms of distance as well. While one is known as the Jewel of Arabia, the other is renowned as the Land of the Midnight Sun. While one is known for it’s deserts and culture, the other is known for its snow capped mountains and scenic landscapes.

Interestingly, there are some similarities as well in the fact that both are surrounded by water on three sides and are also famous for their fjords.

What struck me about these videos were the overall story, the music and the detailing which had gone behind conceptualising them. While there maybe many other better tourism videos out there, these two stand out for me for their sheet aw

Kuwait diaries: A walk at the Marina Beach

The winter months in Kuwait are the best time for taking a stroll at the numerous beaches. The maximum temperatures at about 12-15 degrees are way cooler than the 50+ degrees it rises to during the summer months.

Situated in the Arabian Peninsula, Sultanate of Oman – the land of Queen of Sheba and Sindbad the Sailor is a country of many contrasts.
