Shimla, India: The queen of hills – Telegraph

DanceShimla was once the summer capital of the British Raj. But though its eccentric legacy survives, this Himalayan city has much more to offer than 19th-century memorabilia, says Diana Preston.

Mini Stove

Nice way to improvise a mini stove. Once our stove was not working because we took diesel instead of Petrol (Gasoline) or Kerosene and It didn’t work at all. Hope I had seen this video, we could have done some experiments.

Ghazal king Jagjit Singh dies at 70

Jagjit Singh dies at 70

Renowned ghazal singer, Jagjit Singh, 70, passed away at 8 am at Lilavati Hospital, Mumbai, where he had been admitted to on September 23 after suffering from a brain hemorrhage. Jagjit Singh is survived by his wife, Chitra Singh, and though the couple saw meteoric heights, it also experienced dark personal tragedies. Their only son, Vivek, died in a car crash in the early 90s; his stepdaughter from Chitra Singh’s first marriage, Monica, who was a tarot card reader, committed suicide in 2009.  Known as the ‘Ghazal King,’ Jagjit Singh’s personal tragedies gave his atmospheric, depressive soul-searching ghazals an emotional edge.

My best three adventures till date !!!

As an adventurer lover and enthusiast i have been a participating adventure activities of all kind since my childhood. When I was a child i used to spend the my entire summer vacation in my mom’s village and I learnt the basic lessons of all adventure activities without any instructions. We use to swim, climb mountains, cycling, etc. Now they have become more organised, to show off on facebook that look I have been to these places and did all this and get comments on that.

My major activity area for my adventure activites is The Great Indian Himalayas of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh, Uttharakhand and Sikkim. (Great Nepal Himalayas are next to explore). I have done rafting, cliff jumping, rapelling, trekking, high altitude trekking and mountaineering in them.

So my best three from many adventures are !!!!

1. Adventures of Basic Course

2. Stok Kangri Expedition (My Highest Altitude 6153M till date)

3. Successfull Unsuccessful Alpine Expedition to Mt. Panwali Dwar Read the rest of this entry »
