Coronised Countries , Economy & Stooping Powers

While writing this article , monstrous COVID-19 is going strong targeting humans & taking their lives. The blame game is ON, as to who is to be held responsible for the spread of this deadly virus. Who says the Super Power can not be brought to their knees.

This reminds me of an episode from Indian mythology, Mahabharta when Lord Hanuman transformed himself to an old & frail monkey and intentionally blocked powerful Bhima by laying his long tail in his way. Bhima, who had turned an egotist by then, told the Old Monkey to clear his way by withdrawing his tail back. Old Monkey tells Bhima that he is tired and he can move ahead by putting his tail aside.

Bhima tried doing this , though angrily because it was kind-of  lowering his  self esteem. Oh my God !! Don't tell me that he could not lift the tail. Yes, That's true, most powerful Bhima could not even move the tail. Reason- egotism and it was the time to level that up. And Lord Hanuman wanted to do that so that Bhima remains as powerful as always.

Exactly, the same is the situation of  Super Power , Five Eyes and so on . So called Superpower and various other countries have exhibited the whole world their might in succumbing to more powerful COVID-19. I am sure the world has learnt what was overdue to be learnt.

The GLOBAL ECONOMY is  dashed to ground , however in this bleak economic scenario there are new riches being formed and celebrated riches loosing the firm ground. Take an example of 49-year-old , Eric Yuan , the founder and CEO of Video conferencing startup Zoom Technologies , Inc whose net worth has jumped 112% to $ 7.57 billion in past three months. Even the best schools in India are using ZOOM for their online classes, let alone the Corporate Sector.

That's ok and its bound to be that way. There will be gainers and looser in any given situation. Looser will survive, if they have build the assets. Business segment may fail or cripple, however if the businesses are standing on the assets than the liabilities & debt , the fall is not going to be much deeper.

Now, talk about environment. So many conferences, Copenhagen ; but it is the lock-down due to COVID-19 that has done the job. Its understood that the members from all the countries present discussing the Global Warming/Climate Change would have never thought of worldwide lock-down. Remember Himalaya being seen from Jalandhar/Pathankot in Punjab which caught the headlines recently. Its time to fix mandatory lock-downs for the Mother Earth to heal at regular intervals.

We have much more to learn from this pandemic effect !!

Daafi House - An Offbeat Place to Stay close to Shimla

Realizing the fact that Shimla is already crowded, Hotels & Resorts are finding more hills around Shimla to house their hospitality projects. This idea is sure to get the tourists flooded in these areas. One such place is Theog which is now known as a mountain village, chosen by Taj for their premier property. Now Club Mahindra has also found a place near Taj. I was close to the Taj location for one of our project-setting-up when I encountered this property which is my prime focus in this article. The property signboard read - Daafi. The Architecture was captivating & could not resist requesting the manager to allow me to go around and take pictures. The property has Vernacular Architecture looks- high stone walls and lined with wooden spars. I even noticed the spars extruding out of walls to provide the real Vernacular Architecture looks. Kudos to the Architect & Owner, who hail from Himachal itself,  for finalizing such a design. More than the architect it's the owner

Drive from Shimla to Rampur Bushehar

I always feel the traveler has to be whimsical. The moment thought comes to your mind, pick up your vehicle, gather companions, and get-set-go !! My family demanded an outing, and I thought let's go for a drive. While taking the car out from the parking lot, I asked my wife," Which way, right or left ?".Well, we headed towards a left-way to Kufri, Narkanda, Rampur, Sarahan. The destination set was Sarahan, Bhimakali temple. On the way, we passed through Kufri, Kaithu, Theog, Narkanda, Kumarsain.  Somewhere near Theog By the time we reached Kumarsain, it was late afternoon and we were famished. We didn't get any decent place en route. HP Tourism restaurant at Narkanda was blocked due to snowfall, and we didn't want to climb the curled knolls formed by the snow cutter.  Lucky us, we got " Happy Bhojnalya " near Kumasain. I could spot a ladder to reach the terrace of the restaurant. I decided to request the owner to set our lunch on the terrace which he agr

Airports in Himachal Pradesh

  Himachal Pradesh has been the dream destination of tourists from all over the world. Himachal Pradesh had only one airport at Bhunter ( Kullu-Manali) airport for a long time, until the Shimla Airport was built and opened for operation, with very limited flights, mostly Indian Airlines. The flights were heavy on the pocket and mostly the flight used to be from Delhi via Chandigarh. Therefore, very few would opt for flights and would always be ready to take the pains of traveling by road. Presently, Himachal Pradesh has three domestic airports – Kullu Manali Airport Shimla Airport Kangra Airport   Kullu-Manali Airport At Bhunter – Kullu–Manali Airport  (I ATA Airport Code :  KUU )  is situated at Bhunter closer to Kullu –Manali. It’s a domestic airport and built on the banks of the river Beas. Those who wish to visit Kullu-Manali, Lahaul Spiti valley, they make use of this airport and it saves ample time. The places around this airport from travelers point of view are Kasol,
