Ellora caves,India

Hello friends
  Last week I went to explore the Cave sculptures and paintings  in Ajantha and Ellora caves in Aurangabad.Here are some photographs taken of Ellora caves. It was an wow factor experience indeed. Ellora was beautiful you could go on looking at each pillar and post and not complete the experience even in a month.What I could see was for few hours that is all.I took these photographs but after a while you forget to click since you need to absorb the beauty into your memory.Its a tiring journey to the interiors of Aurangabad and lots of walking and climbing.So if you ever do it take your time and enjoy. Check out this link for more detailshttp://www.aurangabadlive.com/ellora-caves.aspx

Travelling to Bhuj

Today we travelled to Bhuj 320 kms from Ahmedabad.  Some of the highlights of this travel was the wetlands and salt fields. The white fields and it's charm was spoiled by the high tension electric wires!
We also had a brief look into the technicalities of block printing. Amazing that the block printed saree goes through so many process of dyeing and printing with different blocks of carved wood.
Here are some photos
