Rupeshjit talks about a great trip she made in her hometown, India
India is a diverse country with its festivals, religious beliefs, rituals, culture, languages, traditions, clothing, harvest, art, weather and foods changing state to state. A couple of years ago, in 2019 I, along with my parents and brother, visited the marvellous state of Rajasthan, which is the largest in India. This trip was about week and a half in the month of July and it connected various cities of Rajasthan in the order of Salasar, Jodhpur, Chittorgarh, Udaipur, which is the city of lakes, Mount Abu, Jaisalmer, Bikaner and then back to Punjab.
My favourite part of this journey was the delicious mouth-watering food that I ate and those wonderful rides that I took with my family. Seriously, it was the most invaluable experience of my life. Dal bati choorma, ker-saghri, Dahi tadkha, bajra roti and other dishes I tried at different places in Rajasthan were so amazing. After walking about half an hour in the market of Jodhpur, I loved those tasty jalabies with Chai.
From those cool beautiful mountains of Mount Abu to hot sandy desert of Jaisalmer, we covered it all. In Jaisalmer, we enjoyed camel riding and also saw the location where the movie Bajrangi Bhaijan movie was shot. By the time we reached Mount Abu, I got travel-sick, but we still had fun going boating.
We also visited historical monuments located at different cities. Their architecture and history still amaze me. To name a few, Balaji Temple in Salasar, forts in Rajasthan, and Haldi Ghati have historical significance. These phenomenal memories that I made with family will never fade away and I will cherish them my entire life.
