My article on Tawang has just been published in You could read all about it in Tawang, India: History and Romance at 13,000 Feet .Please let me know your views and feedback .

And another surprise. Ugich Konitari who has a blog called Gappa has just awarded me this . Thanks a ton.I am passing on this award to everyone who has commented on this post. Its indeed a weekend to feel good and relax. And I am busy planning holidays for friends and clients. Why am I cribbing that my travel plans are getting altered ?

    What a combination. Featuring your fantastic Tawang trip and my blog (with your award) in the same post…I feel totally humbled.

    Just wondering how you find out these great places to visit in all these remote corners. As always, a very wonderful, enjoyable, and educative experience..

    Just read the full post in GoNomad too. Until now, I haven’t been able to visit that region yet even though I have a lot of artifacts at home from Arunachal and other NE states brought home by my parents.

    Congrats Lakshmi, and enjoy the break..

    AP is my heartland I love every inch of that place..if they allowed I think I would buy a land or buy a house there… It’s the only place I feel and see myself happily living ever after, like those Enid Blyton, books !!

    Heartiest congratulations.

    Your post on Tawang is simply astounding. The pictures are awe inspiring.

    You have very aptly called it ” History and Romance at 13000 feet”.

    Needless to say that you have created a strong urge to visit this heavenly place.

    Travel plans being altered? That may be part of what makes you a traveller as opposed to a tourist (re: the post above) which I really liek about your blogging. A seeking of understanding.

    Wow.. that is great news. Congratulations. Just a quick suggestion for a blog entry, why don’t you post a list of things that makes you blog and what keeps the passion going, would be great read for want-to-be-bloggers like me.
