ancient AJMER

There are so many unanswered questions in life. Is it just me or others feel it too? Well I don't know. Since I am a stay at home mom for the past five months, ( omg its five months already!!) I have ample time to ponder on stupid questions like this!!

I have always been a homebody. I have always lived with my parents. Never been a rebel; its always home from school, then to dance classes, music classes, playtime and then back to home. Never stayed at hostel away from parents. My Dad has been so overprotective that he never allowed me to go on college trips with my friends. According to him, parents who let their kids go have dozens of children; he only has one!! Well, even before I finished medical college, I got married during internship owing to my husband's persistent persuasion. Hence I got married very young and therefore from my parents' home it was my husband's. So never lived independently!!

Sometimes my husband accuses my type A personality to be a result of not leading a dorm life. I am such a cleanliness and organisation freak that it freaks him out!! He says that if I would lived with friends, my personality would have been a lot different and relaxed!! Well I don't know. I simply don't know whether it would have been better or worse!!

So for a girl like me who had always travelled the world with parents, lost a part of their authority and control when I got married. Shortly after marriage, I had the opportunity to have a girls alone trip. There was an examination which was supposed to be conducted in Ajmer, rajasthan. I had been to Rajasthan twice with my parents. But somehow this trip was very different from the previous ones. My over possessive husband somehow had to let me go with my friends as he did not have any leave to accompany me. Anyways, its a trip which I would always remember as the planning, reservation, research etc was entirely on my own!!

A trip to Ajmer is incomplete without visit to the Dargah. Super crowded, its a task to get clicked there!!


Yummy food for dinner!!
