Sula Vineyards, Nashik

Sula Vineyards is a winery located in Nashik but at a considerable distance from Nashik city. It is a lovely drive with beautiful scenery through the rural areas. It is a 1800 acre estate.

My family and I left from Bombay by car and stayed at Igatpuri(Mystic Valley Spa and Resort-lovely place to rejuvenate ) which is some 50km from Nashik. One will have to take the Nashik bypass which one HUGE long road...So keep your eyes open if you dont want to miss your turn !

Sula Vineyards is one huge estate. It houses the winery, the tasting room, the cellars, the manufacturing units, restaurants, amphitheatres and their resort, Beyond.

  For a fee of Rs.350 per head we got the Winery Tour and the Tasting room where we were told about the history of Sula, the kind of grapes grown, the types of wines exported etc.

First we were shown the tanks where the wine was normally kept, second we were taken to the barrel room which was ENORMOUS.

 Next came the wine tasting in the Tasting Room. Here we were taught how to differentiate between the 6 wines offered to us.

This tour took us about 45 minutes. A souvenir and wine shop is there if you like to take home some memories of your trip to Sula Vineyards !

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.

 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…

CRPF Personnel martyred in J&K

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is the largest of India's Central Armed Police Forces. The CRPF's primary role lies in assisting the State/Union Territories in police operations to maintain law and order and counter insurgency. With 239 battalions and various other establishments, the CRPF is considered India's largest paramilitary force and has a sanctioned strength of 313,678 personnel. 

Yesterday, at 3:15pm, a Scorpio driven by a Jaish suicide bomber who was a local youth carrying a huge amount of explosives, deliberately crash banged into 1 of the 78 trucks which formed part of the convoy carrying approximately 2500 CRPF personnel who were returning from their vacation and proceeding to resume work in Awantipora, 30kms from Srinagar.
