Jodhpur Travel Experience

Jodhpur in Rajasthan is a premium touristic place after Udaipur. Like the rest of the Rajasthan, Jodhpur has a fort i.e Mehrangarh Fort. This fort is the major attraction of Jodhpur. Jodhpur is also known as, “Blue City” as most of the homes in the city are colored in blue. The best time to visit, Jodhpur is during the winters in India. The whole of the city is spread across this famous fort only.


Jodhpur has an airport which makes it easier to reach this place. If one doesn’t wish to travel via flight. Then the option of trains is also available. One can take a train to Jodhpur. India’s railway network is one of the finest railway networks in the world. The best place to book trains is via IRCTC.


If a person is fond of the food, then Jodhpur will never disappoint you. A hotel “Gypsy Restaurant.” This restaurant is famous for Rajasthani thali & I bet this will fulfill your stomach & mind completely. Trying Rajasthani Thali is essential while in the city. Further, one of the most refreshing things to do in Jodhpur; is sitting in a rooftop restaurant & having dinner. The backdrop of the fort with mouth-watering food will make your trip worthwhile.


Most of the people visit Jodhpur; as a stoppage point before visiting Jaisalmer. As both these cities are nearby & during winters a road trip from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer is refreshing & mesmerizing.


Jodhpur is good for a couple of days & purely for eating & shopping. A marketplace is available to buy some aesthetic goods & textiles. After enjoying Jodhpur, people usually head towards the Jaisalmer (to witness the sand dunes of India).

Where Is The God ? Part IV (Efforts Not Being Rewarded)

In the holy book, “Gita” there is a saying, “One should only do the work, & should not crave for the results.” As results are often are not in our control. Thus, the easiest way for peaceful living is to detach from the results & attach to the processes. But, it is easier to say than to be done. Doing without asking anything in return is the most paradoxical thing one comes across in life, as the first thought of carrying out any action is the results linked to the action. In a world, where the rewards are related to happiness. How is it possible for a human being to detach from rewards?. In the end, we are just living beings & social animals. For us, one of our greatest accomplishments is being remembered by other fellow human beings. As being recognized gives a godly feeling for at least some minutes. For this, we put results above the process & eventually link our happiness with the results.

How often we have seen people working hard as day labor; who spends 8-10 hours (in India) in toiling heat & humid conditions without any safety harness & in return earns a meager salary of Rs 500 per day. Whereas on the other hand, one person who is working for 4-5 hours is earning in lakhs. Obviously, there is a different set of skills that each person owns that he can leverage to get where he or she is. Yet, in terms of absolute efforts, the rewards are entirely different. How would that person feel, who is working as hard as the person sitting on the laptop but is getting significantly low rewards?. So, are the efforts being rewarded fairly?. Many so-called “Successful” individuals, look down on people who are not by saying that they are not working hard or smart enough. But, they merely forget, that an event of randomness allows them to leap one step ahead compared to their peers. The same concept is in the book, “Fooled By Randomness”. Yet, some feel they are smart enough, hard-working enough, tough enough to beat the competition.


Efforts are subjective & the most essential part of rewards. Donkey toil every day & is probably the most hard-working animal in the food chain. On the other hand, Lion only gets up to hunt & spends the rest of the time relaxing & reproducing. Donkey is treated as abuse, while Lion is the king of Jungle. There is a significant difference in the efforts of both. Yet, one is treated entirely differently from the other. So, how can one say that effort gives you desired results. Although, not doing any work will surely fail you. So efforts are necessary to get to your destination without any second thoughts. But, is the efforts worth the result are entirely different.

A person toiling day in & day out for something extra or some rewards often faces the humiliation & pain of getting rejected daily. After getting rejected hundreds of times, the pain of rejection somewhat subsides & the feeling of hatred, agony, anger takes over the mind. Why the person’s hard work is not rewarded with the desired results? Not getting desired results often robs people of happiness & gives wind to sadness. People who have gone through such phases can vouch for the same. Is God being fair for not treating efforts with rewards? & make them wonder if there is God for real or not?

As per Hindu rituals, nobody gets more than the written & before the time. Maybe this is true & is the reason Lord Krishna said, “Just do work & forget about the results.” As seeking results will make you restless & often anxious & will make you mean. If one focuses on just working irrespective of the results, it will make one calmer & peaceful. The ultimate destiny that we pursue. An efficient way to live life; a life fruitful & less miserable. We suffer because of our desires & the desires arise because of our attraction towards the results. A painful journey that we all need to go through. The best way would be to commence the journey & let the action take its own course. Because, “We feel we are in control of the situations & can determine the results, but we are just pawns in the greater scheme of things.

Spain Visa During The Time of Covid

The year 2021 was no different from the year 2020, corona has halted the normal lives of people & it is doing so very subtly. Every few months new variants are coming resulting in the shutting down of the borders. This is impacting the travel industry a lot, flights are getting canceled & plans are getting tossed up in the unknown. However, with the vaccinations, things are getting normalized in some sense, if not all. Few countries opened their border for tourism for fully vaccinated individuals & Spain was one such country that allowed it; citing this opportunity, I planned a trip to Spain during my birthday in November.


Ibiza
India approved covishield & covaxin for clinical use & Spain considered people vaccinated with covishield to travel their country. I was vaccinated with the covishield vaccination, so I promptly started searching for the list of documents required for applying for the visa & any additional approvals required before applying for a visa. Previously, I went to Spain in 2017 on my first Europe trip, but this time I exclusively chose Spain because of the restrictions. I planned my trip for 2 weeks & decided to cover places like Madrid, Ibiza & Seville. I will cover all these cities in detail in the coming posts. However, before this let’s start with the visa process.


In 2017, I had applied for a Netherland visa through VFS global. However, Spain is using BLS as a service provider. So, I had to follow the instruction given by BLS. One can find information about location via their website. BLS office location can be found on their website. BLS India Website

4. Travel Insurance:

One should have a minimum coverage of 30,000 Euros for the number of days one is planning to stay in the country. The insurance should be valid for the entire duration of your trip journey. One can use many insurance providers for this. I used Bajaj Allianz for the same.

Thus, it is up to one to book or not. Also, most of the flights are offering free cancellation services up to 24 hrs before flying in case one is not able to travel for some of the other reasons. One can use following link

Skyscanner: Skyscanner compares various sites & sort the flights based on the rates. A great way to check flight cost. Although the only drawback is that rates are flexible. Hence, the cost might change while you are making the payment.

8. Visa Fee:

One will have to spare approx 8000-9000 Rs per application for the applying.


9. Copy of Passport:

If you have obtained Schengen Visa with previously can submit the photocopy of the same while submitting the documents. Also, one needs to submit an old passport (if expired & issued a new one).

After applying for the visa one needs to wait for a minimum of 5 days for getting a stamped visa. The stamped passport will be couriered to your address & if stamped it is time to travel.

Uttarakhand, Andaman, Kovalm, Spiti Valley and many more amazing adventure destinations in India are locations that you must visit atleast once in your lifetime. Below is a list of the top 5 adventure destinations in India that we believe you must visit.


Uttarakhand

You just know the amount of adventure and fun that is enclosed here, when rather than naming a particular spot the whole state is mentioned in the list! The state of Uttarakhand is without a doubt one of the most famous adventure places in India. Home to the amazing Roopkund trek, this state is just a cluster of adventures. The Roopkund Trek leads you to the peculiar Roopkund Lake, well we call it peculiar because the lake is surrounded by human skeletons, hundreds of them to be honest. But not just this kinda haunted and weird trek, the state of Uttarakhand is also famous for various other heart-thumping treks and activities including Nag Tibba Trek, Kalka-Kasauli Trek, Kheerganga trek and many more. All you have to do is book your visit while keeping in mind the weather, as not all treks are accessible throughout the year.


Leh and Ladakh

There is a very old saying when it comes to beauty and where to find it, “ beauty is everywhere, all one has to do is just look around” and no kidding this saying is true when said in the context of the mesmerising Leh Ladakh Travel. A trip that offers absolute scenic vistas, the trips to Leh and Ladakh in India are a thing of beauty, there is something about those slow-clad mountain peaks, rugged yet lively landscapes, soaring mountains tops, dangerous roads and roaring bike engines that just feels right!

Book the Leh Ladakh biking tour now and explore the beautiful landscapes on a bike!


Andaman

The islands of Andaman and Nicobar are particularly famous for the best water sports and water-based activities that they offer. Whether it is snorkelling or scuba diving or parasailing, this is just the right place for anyone who is a water child. The island is home to the best beaches and resorts, which sit right at the venue of the water rides, so choose your ride and get started with the adventure!


Kovalam

Surfing is not something that you will generally associate with the country of India, but what if we tell you there is a part of Kerala where it is one of the most popular activities? Kovalam in Kerala is home to a great population of surfers and surfing schools. If you are one of those who loves the sport or want to try it out, now is the right time for you to do it!


Spiti Valley

As the summer heat gives way to the annoying monsoons of the hills, as the landslides and road blockages in the majority of areas of the Himalayas, this amazing road trip to the cold desert is your ideal getaway to flee the sweltering heat and humidity of the hustling cities and the unending rains of the mountains. What if we tell you that you can do all this, and much more at one of the highest stations in India? Where no vegetation flowers and the valleys are surrounded by tall, exposed, and barren ridges with snow-capped tops. Where just a few vehicles make it since there are no roads, just rubble, and rocks, and natural beauty as far as the eye can see.

Spiti, which means ‘middle land’, is one of our desired destinations. It not only provides us with an escape from the heat but also shows us how to actually live and let go! Spiti is definitely not for people who want a luxurious getaway, or for the timid. If you are one of those who are looking to traverse the local Spitian culture by living in rustic homestays and enjoying local food, we welcome you aboard as we travel through this mysterious land exploring clandestine gems and making a myriad of memories under the stars.

It is way harder to actually have your product win with the customers, than some old white dues on Sandhill Road to write you a check. So if this is breaking you down, you are in deep shit.

If you want to build businesses, hard work should be the first, second & third part of the formula.

Work is the variable of success.

In entrepreneurship, there is no in-between, either you are in or you are out. This is binary.

Every time there is an actual attention revolution, enormous money is being made & enormous money is being lost.

Everyone looks at a finished product today, nobody watches the amount of work one has put behind it.

You cry, you gonna lose & I have bad news about complaining & crying, nobody gives a shit.

Speed is 4 billion times important than perfection.

There are 4000 things one wants, it confuses you. Don’t be confused see what you want, reverse engineer it & get it.

Regret fucking sucks

Tripple down on one thing instead of being half pregnant on the other 9 things.

Stop looking at your friend’s shit.

Every second you spend thinking about somebody else has is taking away from time that you could create something for yourself.

If it was so easy, don’t we all choose that?

You want this to be your life & you are giving up after 4 months.

Patience is grossly underestimated.

Don’t play short games, play long-term games.

Without wasting any more time, here are some of the best lessons from the interview.


Quotes By Naval Ravikant:

Specialization is for insects. So everyone should be able to do anything. I don’t believe in focus life on one thing. You have got one life; just do anything your gonna do.

One has to be a fool & have a beginner’s mind & go back to the beginning to start over. If you are not doing that, you are getting older.

Reading a large number of books or books to completion is a vanity metric. I would read the best 100 books over & over again till I have absorbed them rather than reading all the books as the brain has finite information & infinite space. You get enough advice & it all cancels to zero & there are nonsense books as well.

Rather than looking at yourself, one is looking at how the other person is looking at you. It’s a kind of disease as social media is making a celebrity of all of us & celebrities are the most miserable people in the world.


You need to be rich & anonymous, not poor & famous.

Everyone needs three basic things, everyone wants to be wealthy, everyone wants to be rich & everyone wants to be healthy. These three things can be actually taught.

When there is a crisis going on you have to be the coolest cucumber who also figures out the correct answer.

Social contracts are powerful, if you want to give up on drinking & if you are serious you will announce it to the world. All these are choices, being fit is a choice, eating nutritions is a choice & happiness is also a choice. If you are so smart & capable, why are you not happy?

Desire is a contract that you make with yourself to be unhappy till you get what you want. Don’t have the unlimited desire, have one desire & let go of others so that you can be peaceful & calm.

How much output you are getting, what are you doing, how you doing are way more important than, how hard you work.

You are not going to get rich by renting your time.

It is difficult to predict what kind of jobs will be available 10 years from now. Societies will always create new jobs.

Automation will take over all the jobs except the creative jobs.

If you want to see who rules over you, see who you are not allowed to criticize.

People who get outraged are the stupidest people on social media.

All the great minds are figuring out how to get you addicted to the news & if you are addicted your brain will get destroyed. The modern struggle is to resist yourself to these things or draw boundaries.

News has become commoditize & entire news media has shifted to peddling opinions & entertainment. So, these are now propaganda machines for their tribe.

Social media outlets are picking up the next president, prime ministers.

If all of your beliefs in one political party you are not clear thinker, if all your believes is as per your friends & neighbor you are not a clear thinker. If you want to be a clear thinker, you can’t pay attention to politics, it will destroy your ability to think.

All of our diseases are diseases of abundance not a disease of scarcity.

Everyone is trying to program everybody & the only solution is to turn it off.

All the men’s problems arise because he can not sit by himself for 30 min in a room alone.

Peace is happiness at rest & happiness is peace in motion. You can convert peace to happiness at any time.

We think we get peace by solving all the external problems. But, there are unlimited external problems. Hence, the only way to get it is to give up the idea of problems.

One should have a deep understanding of what you doing & why you doing it.

Answers to all the great questions are paradoxical.

I am nothing & I am everything.

Live well below your mean & you will enjoy the freedom that one can’t fathom.

There is no get rich scheme, it is other people getting rich through your money.

Most smart people realize possession doesn’t make them happy.

A busy mind can often rob you of peace of mind or peace from the mind.

The fundamental illusion is that there is something that will make us happy & keep us happy forever.

Retirement is when you start sacrificing today for some imaginary tomorrow.

The way to beat the competition is by being authentic.

Your real resume is a catalog of all your sufferings.

You have to do hard things to create meaning in your life.

Everyone has two lives, the second one starts once he realizes he has just one.

A happy person wants 10,000 things; a sick person wants only one.

Don’t focus on more than one desire at a time. The universe is rigged in such a way that, if you focus on one thing you will get it. But everything else you will have to let it go.

Happy thoughts disappear from the mind quickly, negative thoughts linger.

It likes a play to me but works for them & the reason why nobody can beat me. As I am playing 16 hours 7 days a week, they are working.

Life of Cryptocurrency Trader

Cryptocurrency trading becomes fashion during the time of the bull run. In the uptrend movement, everyone jumps onto the ship & considers it as an easy money-making option & this is probably the biggest mistake one can make. People often only talk about the financial aspects of it. However, nobody talks about the economic aspects of crypto. The economic aspect is as important as the financial aspect, which holds for any new startup or experiment. Cryptocurrency is about the unique technology “blockchain” behind it & it is an EXPERIMENT for now. Every experiment comes with a risk of going to zero that many traders overlook. Many people take it as a sure-shot ticket to the moon, which is appropriate assuming if this experiment is successful. Many people who trade cryptocurrency don’t think about it at all & thus lose money. Trading is a highly professional job, just like the stock market. It is not easy to track every stock & determine which stock will go up & down. There are more than 2000 currencies, & each one is unique in its way. During the bull trend, major of the coins pump 10-15x minimum & thus makes it one of the events to look up to. Like every good thing, the bull market tends to over. However, people jump on the boat after seeing insane gains (but the gains have already been made). They buy the hype, which is never a good idea & in a result make losses. In a bull market, everyone is a crypto trader & they are the first ones to leave the market. One should know that cryptocurrency trading is not a cakewalk.


Many of us have seen the posts, which shows how holding a share worth 1000 Rs is now in Cr after 20 years. People generally look at the final price of Cr. However, misses the point of holding the asset for 20years. The most difficult part is holding on to the stocks even after having 500% in profit. Just like stocks, in cryptos, insane gains are made via holding or HODL (a famous word in the crypto community). The problem is the greed of getting rich overnight & some people have become so overnight. But, the ratio of such people is very low & we want to take them as our inspiration. Before reaching the stage of overnight success one has to sail through the rough waves. Thus, there are many phases that grips or torture the daily life of a crypto trader. Like life, cryptocurrency trading consists of many phases.


The Unkonwn:

Unkown Phase
The most depressing & disheartening phase of the crypto industry is this phase. When there is no news, people are not talking about it, the progress is slow & there is a dilemma if this thing will ever shine. Yet, it is one of the most important phases to buy, as those people who look for short-term gains don’t pay attention to the progress. A perfect opportunity to accumulate coins that can become something big in the future. Most of the crypto traders accumulate in this phase & wait for their turn to make some huge gains. Newbies miss this phase because of the lack of interest in the industry.


The Moment:

The Moment
After months or sometimes years of non-movement or sideways movement, there comes a time when the uptrend starts & there are daily gains visible on the portfolio. This part is most fascinating, as the greens are always good for the eyes. This moment is needed to be cherished & a price to be remembered. As this should be treated as support for one’s trade.


The Hype:

Hype Life Of Crypto Currency Trader
After the price rises silently, suddenly the hype is created among the holders & everyone will share screenshots of the gains they have made while holding the crypto. During a bull run, a 10x gain is the minimum one expects & some of the projects outperform others by 100x as well. Thus there will always be someone who will be showing off his or her massive gains.


The NEWS:

News Cryptocurrency
If one coin rise parabolically, then it needs to be covered in the News. Which usually is not covered by them. When this happens, one should stay alert & pay attention to the prices. The News covers a larger audience & their reach is more. So, if they cover the price actions, millions of people will get to know about this asset class, people jump in for some quick & easy money; without realizing the technology behind it. This coverage should be treated as the first sign of a future correction. Because of its reach, the News becomes the biggest source for the influx of funds & eventually helps in creating the bubble. A bubble that will blast sooner or later & while doing so will remove all the weak hands. Once prices are being covered in the News, one should brace up for the price correction.


The Selloff:

Selloff Mark My Adventure
The most painful part of the journey is the selling. Big whales who accumulated during the first phase have already gained 15 to 20x on their assets & they already made enough for this leg of the bull market & once the market becomes too big, it is time to sell. Thus, they sell from their original level. However, people who bought the news are the biggest sufferer of this. Because they jumped the last & especially they bought the news. When people talk about money before reading about the product then it is a dangerous time. This time is bloodbath on the streets & all the new people who came because of the news are the first ones to fall down & with bringing down many more weak hands.


The selling continues till weak hands are flushed out of the system & then the cycle repeats. Big whales accumulate, accumulate & accumulate till the prices are covered in the news. The Crypto market is nothing compared to the traditional market, in this market one can experience as far as 90% retracement, which is not normal for any other industry. This retracement shakes out many newbies & weak hands. So, this is not for everyone & also one should not put his or her life savings in this volatile asset. Though the gains are massive, the losses are of a similar nature.

Timing the market is nearly impossible. The best strategy is to invest each month on a fixed date; only when if one is sure about the technology. All the weak-hearted people can skip this brutal, violent & volatile market. One can refer to the link to invest in crypto currency.

Kashid Beach Trip

Kashid Beach is one of the most famous places near both Pune & Mumbai. It is a cheap get away from both the metropolitan cities & is easily reachable through road. I went to this place from both Pune & Mumbai & absolutely loved the route to the destination. Kashid beach is much more commercialized than the previous years. So, anyone who is looking for a quiet getaway might get disappointed. However, an unobstructed view of the ocean & its beauty will be enough to lure you to this place. This time around, I traveled from Mumbai via Zoom Car (a self-driving car hiring service).


Kashid Beach Sunset
We started from Mumbai, taking the old Mumbai- Pune highway, which is newly constructed. The route will take one from Navi Mumbai Airport to Karnala Bird Sanctuary, to Alibaugh & then finally to Kashid Beach. After crossing Panvel, the traffic reduced substantially & we entered the green surroundings. The surroundings are fabulous during the rainy season. The way will pass through a steel plant, small bridges & some villages. Before reaching Kashid, a route of approx 5 Km is heaven, where one gets to ride overlooking the ocean. The place covers several points, where one can take pictures & enjoy some peaceful time.


Kashid Beach Mark My Adventure
After traveling for roughly 4 hours, we witnessed the mesmerizing beach of Kashid. The beach is clean & the water is a bit muddy. The beach has several food outlets & Goan-style water sports. The beach is crowded & extends to a few Km’s. The best part of the beach is clearly the latter end of it, where the crowd is less & the view is glorious. The commercialized part of the beach is not worth visiting as it will rob you of the beauty.


We rented a place away from Kashid Beach, yet have its mini private beach. The distance of the private beach is hardly 2 min from the stay. We opted for the place for the same reason, as it has given us the excess to the beach or in fact unobstructed beach excess. The place was awesome & having a whole beach to ourselves is one of the bliss that one craves for any given day. The house amenities were very limited, though the services were good & people were eager to provide everything at a handful of distance. We stayed at Shubham Guesthouse, which has 2 properties & person can choose anyone from it.

Food is below par, so expecting a great taste even from the best rating restaurants can be too much to ask for. One may be able to find seafood a bit tastier than vegetarian food. Drinks are readily available so finding it won’t be any problem. Many vanilla shops provide snacks which comprise of maggie, tea, coffee, etc. These vanilla shops can be a real savior during the time of crises.

Kashid beach is a great way to spend some quality time with friends & family. A trip now & then will be awesome at this place.

Manikaran Gurudwara

Manikaran is a highly auspicious place for Sikhs & Hindus. Both the community has a special attachment to the place for various reasons.

Sikh Belief: As per the story, Guru Nanak Dev Ji was with his Sikhs(Bhai Bala Ji & Bhai Mardana Ji) in the Himalaya mountains of India. His Sikhs were hungry and there was no food. Guru Nanak sent his Good Friend Bhai Mardana to collect food for langar (the Community Kitchen). Many people donated rice and flour (atta) to make parsadas (bread). The one problem was that there was no fire to cook the food.

Guru Nanak then lifted a rock and a hot spring (hot water) appeared. The Sikhs were able to make rice and beans. Bhai Mardana was having trouble making parasadas (chapatis) because they kept sinking. Bhai Mardana said, “I am going to donate my life in the name of God”. The parsada amazingly floated. Guru Nanak Dev Ji said that anyone who donates his life in the name of God, All his (or her) drowned items will float. This was a miracle. This is not all, it is believed that the hot springs can cure skin diseases or even ease the swelling caused by gout.

To pay respect to Guru Nanak who is believed to have visited the place. A huge Gurudwara is erected at the place. The Gurudwara is visited by millions of devotees each year. Even today, devotees are treated with free langar organized by Gurudwara.


Way To Manikaran
Hindu Belief: The Hindus believe that Manu recreated human life in Manikaran after the flood, making it a sacred area. Further, According to legend, when the Hindu God Shiva and his consort Parvati were walking in the valley, Parvati dropped one of her earrings. The jewel was seized by Shesha, the serpent deity, who then disappeared into the earth with it. Shesha only surrendered the jewel when Shiva performed the cosmic dance, the Tandava, and shot the jewel up through the water. Apparently, jewels continued to be thrown up in the waters at Manikaran until the 1905 Kangra earthquake. Hence the name.


Waterfall Near Manikaran
Manikaran is approx 5-7 km from Kasol & can be with ease. The road is properly paved & one can find many people visiting the place. The place is peaceful & the best part is the hot spring. Even during winters, hot water is more hotter than water running through a geyser. So having a dip in the water will relieve your tiredness.

The place an absolute gem & visiting it once is absolutely necessary if traveling to Kasol in Himachal.
