So it’s been quite a busy last few days for me, and i’ve been absolutely enjoying them too - learning tons of new things, meeting some great new guys, and just evolving to become a better person. travel does fabulous things, but i also value the learning that comes from workshops, meetings and conversations with people who openly share their life experiences. one such person is shiva, but more on his awesome guy later on!
.
for now enjoy this picture from #mumbai, while i head out to explore a little bit of #kualalumpur ❤️

Dedicated to lord murugan, the hindu temples at the batu caves is a testimony of pluralism in the malaysian society.
.
it also has an interesting history. the 400 million years old limestone mountain was already known in the area when an indian trader decided to install a statue of lord murugan inside the main cave. for the first 30 years there were no steps and one had to hike up to reach the temple. now, main shrine can be accessed by climbing the colourfully painted 272 steps.
.
the caves are located almost within the city itself and can easily be reached by cabs (i used grab) or ktm (metro rail). there is no entry fee.
.
weekends are extremely busy and i would recommend going early morning (i reached at 6.30am) to skip the rush.

Sealink one of the most photographed landmarks of #mumbai, yet i something unique in it every single time i see it (okay, a bit of exaggeration there 🤦🏻‍♂️)...
.
it’s interesting (i am not, these thoughts are) how i find beauty in nature as well as cityscapes. they both have special places in my heart ❤️

Wouldn’t it be really stressful to see the world upside down? 🙈
.
staying with upside down, did you know about this term ‘thatcher effect’, named after late british pm margret thatcher? it’s a phenomena where it’s more difficult to detect feature changes in an upside down face, even if the changes are very obvious in an upright face.
.
our brain just isn’t attuned to seeing world upside down!

"the police are performing its duty in the best possible way. but even if a terrorist loses his life, i feel pained... they all should come back (to the mainstream).”
.
this isn’t from my personal conversation. this was said by the man who’s possibly the most powerful in the state right now. or maybe not.

At dawn everyday something unique happens on dal lake - a vegetable market!
.
a few years back mayank (@mayanksonii ) and i went to the same market (check my story for the link) and i was smitten!
.
the place looks dramatically different in winters, but it’s still amazing to see trade happen at -9 degree celsius 😱

Going to bihar was like going back to my roots. not many of you may know, but i was born in a small town in #bihar (my dad used to work there then) and spent the first few years of my life there - this also made me a lifetime fan of dahi-chuda ☺️
.
the land is special for me and i hope to go back and explore it through stories and pictures. maybe even do a special project exploring my roots there...who knows what my heart decides in future ❤️
.
while bihar is a beautiful state, the narrative about biharis (often clubbed with up) across the rest of the country, including my new home #mumbai, is unfortunately singular and simplistic. no, i can’t change that by myself, but will certainly try and showcase the rich and varied heritage of the state in future here - maybe that’ll open up some closed minds and hearts.
.
also, thanks a ton animesh (@anymesh ) for showing me around and for this 🔥 picture!
