Around the world in a few seconds….


Around the world in a few seconds….

It won’t take that much time to think and imagine, will it?

If I were to grow up and earn enough money to spend on a vacation, where would I go?

Taj Mahal, Agra A trip to the north of the Vindhyas seems like a distant dream to me right now. I wonder when I’ll step onto the northern states and feel that part of India the the world knows better. And if I go there one day, my first desire will be to see the most famous epitome of love made by a ruler who was both lovelorn and ruthless (he is said to have cut off the hands of all the artisans, craftsman and architects who painstakingly built the monument so that they wouldn’t build another one that is more beautiful).




The backwaters of Kerala… I’ve got to see what’s so famous in the boathouses of God’s own country. I’d love to go to any place that is flush with greenery and Kerala, I heard is one. 


Kashmir A lovely land torn between violence and dispute.



Go back in time to see the once overflowing river of Noyyal. Will it be restored to its past splendour? How lucky Coimbatoreans were back then! Noyyal is now polluted and has scarcely any water left.


Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro and Spain…. For their…um, Colours.


Plaza de España, Seville, Spain


The Eiffel Tower It’s hard to believe that this one was made of the same stuff that was used to build my house.

The Louvre Museum, Paris.. Just to see Mona Lisa and her strange (but mesmerizing) smile.

Colosseum, Rome What if cricket matches and political gatherings were held there?



Burj Al Arab, Dubai…. The tallest (self-rated) seven star hotel in the world. I just want to see it, (can’t ever imagine staying there) for it’s for the super-super-rich.



Venice, Italy Canals instead of streets? You’ve got to be kidding..



And Finally, The Moon. (what do ya say?)

  6. None of these will be out of a common mans reach, so pack your bags for the trip when you grow up. But, I would wish you all the luck with Burj Dubai and Moon. Anyway...nothings impossible

  7. Great list, but some of them only look good from far. Taj for instance is surrounded by filth of Agra City, Srinagar and Dal Lake are filthy too...........

  9. Good list.... I've seen only the taj mahal. fact is what you read in books won't be there when you go there... Good practise to keep the expectaions low so that you can enjoy the place better.

  10. What can I say ? You made my day. Rightly titled !! Good studff to start your day with.
    All the pic(k)s are good, especially the Eiffel Tower (you should be proud that your 'sweet home' was built of the same stuff), Backwaters of Kerala and the MOON (Transparency is an ingredient of mystery like silhouetted clouds). Good stuff. keep it up.
