Why I love the world?

World Love

From the time we Indians are born, we are always taught the tenet of “Unity in Diversity“. This is based on the fact that though we have a number of different religions, regions, castes, languages, food items and more in the country, we still live in a united India. Yes, everything is not as perfect as it was intended with discrimination at various levels but then we still celebrate each others festivals, have different types of food and even speak more than one language.

Growing up in an environment like this has always taught me to appreciate diversity in every form. Having traveled to more than 25 countries across Europe, Asia and Africa, I have met people from across the board. It has given me interesting perspectives of their culture, their thoughts and even their beliefs. Eg: Saving and investing a certain amount of money is not just an Indian or specifically an Asian thing. 

Meeting people who are different than we are also plays a strong role in helping remove stereotypes and myths created over many years. Eg: Not everyone from Africa deals in drugs and human trafficking.

CWW Challenge – Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday: Snow covered street in Moscow

“Life is filled with unanswered questions, but it is the courage to seek those answers that continues to give meaning to life. You can spend your life wallowing in despair, wondering why you were the one who was led towards the road strewn with pain, or you can be grateful that you are strong enough to survive it.”

Moscow Diaries: A visit to the legendary Eliseevsky grocery store

Eliseevsky Store - Does this look like a grocery store?

Does this look like a grocery store?

Are you wondering what’s special in a grocery store that am writing a blog post about it? Eliseevsky store at 14, Tverskaya Street in Moscow is one of the oldest stores in the city. It was built as part of a historical building and opened to the public in 1901. It’s actually named “Gastronomia Eliseevsky“.

Can you imagine the work involved in constructing such a store more than 110 years ago?

Moscow Diaries: Christmas nights in Moscow

Christmas in Moscow

Christmas in Russia and about 15 other countries is celebrated every year on January 7th rather than December 25th. The Russians start their year with around 10 vacation days which begin with the New Year celebrations and culminate in the Christmas festivities.

Christmas in Moscow

The primary reason for this is the fact that the Russian orthodox church follows the Julian calendar which is 13 days behind the Gregorian calendar.

So we have already the crossed the first half of the year. As always, it feels as though the months have passed by quicker than I can even imagine. And soon we will bid goodbye to another year gone by.

January started off with me still dreaming about my trip to Moscow and the lovely winter there. There were travel posts galore of the times in Moscow, Kuwait and Singapore. February and March were all about family and fun. I went home for the first time after coming to Kuwait and it truly felt like those days back in Muscat whenever we used to go home during the school summer vacations. There was also the trip to Dubai which culminated in a number of travel posts as well.
