There are two types of people in this world: the ones who prefer traveling solo and the ones who prefer traveling with their partner, friend or husband I must admit: I am not the solo type. I like sharing both my excitement and worries with somebody. What would traveling be without having somebody to complain about how tired you are or about how bad is the weather? Traveling with your loved one is a milestone in each relationship – it takes both courage and patience. I have learned so many things about myself and co-existence from traveling with my husband and I want to share all that with you 👫: You will learn to enjoy the moment together 👫: You will learn how compatible you are - Nothing can test your relationship better than traveling. You know what they say: ‘through good and bad”, right? Traveling will offer you amazing moments together but also moments when team work is necessary. Things like booking the trip, thinking about places to visit and places to eat will show you if you have common interests 👫You will learn about your partner’s planning skills 👫You will learn how your partner handles stress -When traveling to a new place or country you will certainly come across unexpected situations. Delayed airplanes, bad weather, terrible food or lost reservations are all part of the fun of traveling but how does your partner react? Is he or she trying to find a solution or is he freaking out? You will learn to trust each other 👫: You will learn about your Partners spending habits 👫: You will learn to be yourself 👫: You will learn that sometimes it’s not about the destination -Just being with your loved one is the most important thing no matter where you are. You don’t have to be miles away to enjoy each other’s company. If done with the right person, traveling can be an amazing experience and an opportunity to learn a lot about yourself and about your partner. May the Travel Bug bite you!!!! #postcardsandmagnets #travel

🍁 लोग कहते हैं, लोगों को लोग भुलाने में, ज़्यादा वक़्त नहीं लगता... हम यें सब मानते तो नहीं, मगर ऐसा खाता मोल ले लें, यें रिआयत हमें कहाँ? तो, हमने आपको,एक याद बना लिया... 🍁 हम ख़ुश थे... खोफ़ तब चढ़ा,जब याद आया, कीं यादें तो अक्सर धुंदलाँ जाती हैं... तो आपको भूलें ना, इस बात के लिए, हमने उन यादों को, एक बात बना दिया... 🍁 अब बातों का क्या हैं, ये तो बात-बात पे, बनती ही रहती हैं... बिखर के कहानियों में ख़ुद को खों देती हैं, और फिर भी यें बातें, तनती सीं रहती हैं... तो कहीं इन बातों में कोई कहाँ-सुनी न हों जायें, इसी लियें, इस बात को हमने, इक कहानी में सजा दिया... 🍁 पर कहानियाँ कहाँ कभी किसी की सगी हुई हैं? किसे पता ये कहाँ से आयीं, किधर चली जाएँगी... हम कहाँ आपको दूर-दराज़ से लेने आ पाएंगें? तो आपको अपने क़रीब रख सकें, उस याद, उस बात, उस कहानी को, जब चाहें तक सकें, इस ख़ुदगर्ज़ी में हमने आपको, एक तराना बना लिया... 🍁 और तराना भी ऐसा, जो सब न गुनगुना पाएँगे... यें धुन आपकी हैं, जो अब सिर्फ़ हम जानते हैं... आप धुन बनाने में माहिर, हम, गुनगुनानें में... ये धुन आपने इजाज़ कर दी, और हमने, हर गीत को इस धुन में, बर्बाद कर दिया... 🍁

Ring of fire... . Gajan is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly in the Indian state of West Bengal... It is associated with deities such as Shiva, Neel & Dharmathakur... Gajan spans around a week, starting in the last week of Chaitra(last month of the Bengali calendar) & continuing till the end of the Bengali year, i.e. Chaitra Sankranti(last day of the last month of the Bengali calendar)... It ends with Charak Puja... Participants of this festival are known as sannyasis or bhoktas... Persons of any gender can be a participant... The complete history of the festival is not known... The central theme of this festival is deriving satisfaction through non-sexual pain, devotion & sacrifice... The word "Gajan" in Bengali comes from the word "Garjan" meaning roar that sannyasis emit during the festivities... Alternatively, the word Gajan is considered a combination of two words - "Ga" is from the word "Gram" meaning village & "Jan" is from the word "Janasadharan" meaning folk... In this sense, Gajan is a festival of village folks... In Shiva’s Gajan, Shiva is married to Harakali on this day... The sannyasis form the bridegroom’s party... In Dharma’s Gajan, Dharmathakur is married to Mukti... . . . #streetphotography #zonestreet #capturestreets #people_infinity #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #indiaphotosociety #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #storiesofindia #_soi #_coi #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography

According to legend, following an argument related to the superiority of Purush(male) over Prakriti(female), an enraged Goddess Parvati abandoned Lord Shiva & disappeared... Widespread famine followed soon after... When the Lord's followers begged Him for food, He took a begging bowl & went from door to door, begging for the same... But no one had anything to offer, since they were themselves deprived of food... On hearing about a mythical kitchen where food is still available, located in the holy city of Kashi, Lord Shiva went there... Surprised, He found His wife Goddess Parvati to be the owner of that kitchen, but in a different form, as Goddess Annapurna, one who is always full & complete... She offered Her food to Lord Shiva & all the inhabitants of earth, making Him realise that He might have outgrown hunger as Brahman, but His followers have not... . Wishing everyone a prosperous অন্নপূর্ণা পূজা... . . . #streetphotography #zonestreet #capturestreets #people_infinity #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #indiaphotosociety #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #storiesofindia #_soi #_coi #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #culture #festival #travel #travelphotography

"NeelShashthi" is the penultimate day in the month of Chaitra(the last month of the Bengali calendar) when Bengalis celebrate the marriage of Lord Shiva with Goddess Parvati by offering to the Lord... This worship is done by the married women who fast through the day to seek His blessings for their husbands & children... According to belief, "Neel" is derived from "Neelkantha"(a person with a blue throat)...
