Amritsar, India

A long cherished dream – glimpses of the Golden Temple flashing in your imagination ever since childhood – culminated in this extended weekend spent in the holy city of Amritsar. And we pretty much ticked off all the desired boxes : the sarson ka khets, multiple visits to the Golden temple at different times of the day, witnessing the Gatka Martial Arts and the Bhangra dance live, shopping for the phulkaris and the jootis, the Punjabi kulcha in Dhabas and meals in the middle of the fields. The sheer selflessness at the Golden Temple which is widely acclaimed won me over as I found myself drawn to the behind the scenes action and coordination which goes into hosting as well as feeding probably the largest conglomeration of humanity in the world at a time with minimum fuss. Another travel album in the kitty, till the next journey beckons !
