Life Aboard the Longest Train Ride Through India – I recently heard about the Dibrugarh – Kanyakumari Vivek Express, the longest train journey in India.

A Visual Journey Into the Burra Bungalows of Tea Estates of North Bengal – Combining my interests of travel and architecture is this article on the colonial bungalows located in tea estates around the Darjeeling region.

Of Reh, Rituals and Rice Beer – Keen readers might have observed a theme emerging from this list. Yes, most of the articles in this list talk about the North East of India. This is a unique part of our diverse country that I have never been to (not even been close). Well, I do hope to be able to do something about it when it’s safe to travel again.
