If you happen to make some trip in the northern part of India, I must certainly recommend you to visit Punjab, the land of the Sikhs and home of the bhangra music. Before the partition of India, Punjab was a province which was divided between India and Pakistan. However, after the partition Punjab in India became a state while it still remains a province in Pakistan. I am quite surprise when I sometimes talk to Indian friends who don’t even know that there is a province called Punjab in Pakistan. Anyways, I am not here to talk about who knows what about Indian history. The word Punjab literally means the Land of Five Rivers (Beas, Sutlej, Ravi, Chenab and Jhelum River) and has lot of history of invasion and battles. Today, Punjab is doing well and is known as the most fertile region of India. The state is also called as the Granary of India or India’s Bread-Basket. The economy is doing well and the state is well connected through road, air and train offering a great experience for locals and even for tourists that would like to explore this part of India.
I think the monsoon this year was a bit too harsh on India as many states across the country saw flooding situations and recently we all heard about the Phailin cyclone that stormed in from the Bay of Bengal ripping apart many parts of Odisha and Andhra Pradesh. Well, sitting down here in Mumbai, I can feel the heat and humidity factor soaring up and that also means that autumn is here and many people in the plains would look out for some holiday destinations where they can chill out and relax. On the other hand, Diwali is just two weeks away so there will be many people like me that would pack their bags and head off to some cool places to celebrate Diwali in style. While most people celebrate Diwali by visiting their relatives and friends but if you have plans to take some time off from your hectic work and heading to some holiday destinations you can look out for these places for getting that right peace of mind.
The year 2013 has not been quite great for many people because the stock markets are sliding down and there has been lot of unemployment happening as multinationals and companies are trying to use cost cutting measures by eliminating unwanted staff. If you are an Indian, I don’t need to tell you more about how the inflation is quickly consuming up our salaries and the prices of onion have already brought tears to the population of the country. No matter how the economy is doing marriages cannot wait and every couple looks out for best honeymoon destinations in India. While I have already written about the top 5 best honeymoon destinations in India, I decided to add some budget friendly honeymoon destinations as well that won’t cost much and still offer the same thrill, fun and privacy moments that you need.
