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 !

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).

Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

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…
