About Me

What about me? I am Hari Narayana, working as a Project Manager in an Indian Multi National Organization, one of the two children of my parents. I am always with varying moods and emotions in extremities and social. I have a life style of my own and do not mix personal and professional life.

A true Hyderabadi myself, i love my city and its culture; the culture which shows unity in diversity by creating South India’s biggest statue of Lord Ganesha by Mohammadean workers. Love the Irani Chai and Hyderabadi Biryani (never tasted it…am a vegetarian).

Recently my fiancée asked me how did i get so much interested in history. I need to attribute this to two people. One is my grandma from whom i used to listen stories of Shirdi Sai Baba and Gandhi. She actually saw Gandhi when she was very young. This created some interest in knowing things that are old. Also, there were a couple of old Telugu historical novels in my house which were collected my parents. Those novels were published as a serial in a magazine.

I read about kingdoms like Vijayanagara and Kakatiya, knew about people like Prithviraj Chouhan and Shah Jahan and read about Buddhism. That was probably the beginning. Being in Bangalore for nearly four years now has helped me in visiting many new places and the planning for those trips kept me learning more. This passion of knowing India probably is the driving force for my travel.

Travelling has been my passion for a long time. Even though i started visiting places quite recently, i had always read about the various places and their history. This blog is just an attempt to show India in its grandeur through my eyes..

My expeditions constitute a wide range of places like Nature, History and Heritage.

Looking forward for a wonderful and memorable journey…

    I have just returned from a trip to the Bidar Fort. I was delighted to come across your blog about the place. You have gone into such detail that I wish I had read it before I visited the Fort. I was fortunate to have been able to see all the areas that are locked. Apparently, they are waiting for permission to charge an entry fee and then they will open all the areas to the public. But even now, they are quite obliging. I saw a lot of people who were being taken around by the ASI employees. It was a great experience. Thanks for your information.
