In this video I take to a local overlook to show you around Stirling, Scotland, the Gateway to the Highlands and my host city for the semester. From this vantage we’ll see lots of local sights I hope to photograph over the coming seasons, and I take the opportunity to make first attempts at a pastoral landscape subject and discuss my thoughts on travel photography. As a special treat, we’ll be joined by a local expert to hear about William Wallace’s legendary exploits in Stirling, delivered in an accent to put Mel Gibson’s to shame.

Situated in the Khandwa district in MP, Omkareshwar temple is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas.

The great traveller Rahul Sankrityayan called Omkareshwar the most important among all 12 Jyotirlingas, though comparisons in religious matters are often debatable as well as odious.Discover All the Wonderful Things to Do in Tauranga!

What an irony that the SPELLING of the starting point of Revolt of 1857 is still unchanged! ITAWA (the way it’s spelled in HINDI) was wrongly spelt by the Brits as Etawah just like their peculiar spellings of Munghyr (Munger in Bihar) and Cawnpore (today’s Kanpur). Alas, no one cared for this small town from where Sepoy Mutiny began and escalated into India’s first war of independence.Ghaziabad – The Gateway of UP
Though in UP, Ghaziabad is very much a part of Delhi. In fact, it’s in the ambit of NCR. So naturally, it’s the gateway of UP.
