      Trip to my Village ( Punjab )

      Last Week (Friday - Sat and Sun), I went to my village to attend my cousin's wedding. Our village “Bhaluwal” is on State Highway 22 (near Nangal Dam) Punjab. It’s a small village with population of less than 500 people.

      These 3 days were the most peaceful and relaxing, there was no TV, Internet, laptop and BB emails. spent entire weekend visiting naina devi, bhakra dam, kirat pur sahib, Anandpur sahib and wedding .


      Route ta:

      Delhi - Panipat - Karnal - Kurukshetra - Ambla - Rupnagar - Kiratpur sahib - Anandpur Sahib - Ganguwal - My Village

      Total Distance Covered : 350 km,
      Total time travelled : 6 hour each side.

      Places visited -

      Bhakra Dam - 28 KMs
      Naina Devi Temple - 27 KMs
      Anandpur Sahib - 7 KMs
      Kiratpur Sahib - 17 KMs


      That's our home ( on Right )

      Failure is not an option. It is a privilege reserved only for those who try.
      The bottom line is that car audio is a compromise, and you have to decide what deficiencies you are willing to accept prior to delving into it. If you don't, you could end up spending lots of money and time swapping gear, only to find that it was all a waste to begin with.

      Excellent Pics anubhavt Loved all the pics. I had to take a Detour once somewhere near ambala when i was on that road because of the construction and ended up driving in similar roads in a village.

      It was an awesome experience.

      sniff sniff... reminds me of my village.

      Been a very long time since I last visited.... brings back memories of the baan wala manja, the tractor rides in the fields and the fun we used to have as kids whenever there was a marriage in the village.

      Sneak into the room where the sweets were stored & feast on laddoos, jalebis & barfi washed down with tall glasses of warm milk.... yumm!!
