A lot of travelling happened last week, or should I say weekend! Last weekend I did not explore Bangalore. Instead, I explored Indore! One fine Thursday evening I made and plan to visit Indore over the weekend. I made up my mind of doing this trip on Thursday around 9.30pm. I took a bus from Bangalore to Mumbai that midnight, another bus from Mumbai to Indore the following night. Spent a day in Indore. Visited Lalbagh Palace, Pipliyapala Regional Park and it’s lake, Rajwada and finally Sarafa in the night. Left for Bangalore the next morning. That short a trip, this! Unfortunately, my phone stopped working the day I left from Bangalore and I hadn’t carried my camera so I don’t have a single picture of Indore, or the whole trip for that matter. Let me do the “Angoor khatte hai” bit by saying “The best photographs are captured without the camera.”
Oh this reminds me of a sequence from The Secret Life of Walter Mitty –
Walter Mitty: When are you going to take it?
Sean O’Connell: Sometimes I don’t. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it.
Walter Mitty: Stay in it?
Sean O’Connell: Yeah. Right there. Right here.
