On the Trails of a Childhood Dream"

The first look of the Jaisalmer fort from the balcony of our hotel room was spectacular. As I stepped on the balcony after a brief nap and looked out, a dazzlingly bright sunny morning greeted me with the very yellow looking Jaisalmer Fort in the backdrop. The fort made by Raja Jaisal in the 12th century looked nothing like any other fort I’d seen so far. No wonder the Legendary Film Director, Mr. Satyajit Ray used the term ‘Golden Fort’ for his story – the imposing fort made of yellow limestone, looked breath-taking and indeed close to something made of gold!  Those who haven’t had the good fortune to experience the thrill of Satyajit Ray’s timeless ‘Sonar Kella’are really unfortunate.  But Jaisalmer, is unique a has a special charm for a traveler. The dusty roads, the camels, the rustic people of Rajasthan - specially the hauntingly beautiful and strong Rajasthani women and the unmistakable sound of ‘Ravanhattha’ the quintessential Rajasthani musical instrument – all these are magical!

Actress Rupali Suri is probably one of the biggest foodies in Bollywood. And it's easy to understand that. How? Simple. Ask her about food, and she begins to talk like a girl possessed. Lol. We mean, food-possessed :p

 

Talking about her favourite restaurants, Rupali likes this place called the The Big Chill in Delhi. But when abroad, she doesn't really have any favourite, but likes to try out different restaurants, "especially the small boutique restaurants which have great tastes to offer."
