An ordinary guy, on the search for extraordinary experiences. Blogging about the things that I consider truly beautiful in life, and attempting to ramble about the half a dozen million things that cross my mind every day.
In an earlier avatar, this blog went by the moniker of garnishednonsense. I have discovered a lot of joy in travel and photography. On the subject of travel, I am a bit partial to history, culture, folklore and mythology and India is a country that provides all of these in abundance. I am fascinated with, but not particularly brave at trying out local cuisines and would love to get acquainted with fellow bloggers, historians, documentarians, travel writers and even armchair travelers.
My other interests also include technological advancements, meaningful cinema, wars, economics and foreign policy and often feel a compelling need to question why there are boundaries to travel and limits to freedom in a civilization that has been around for more than two millennia. Trying to see the funny side of things and exposure to the beauty of our planet is, in my opinion, one of the few things that mankind needs desperately today.
Thanks for stopping by. And drop in a comment if this blog helped you. Or entertained you.
