Hi Hitangshu, Daksh has made you a "COMLETE PHAMILYMAN". Congrats buddy.
This is one different travelogue & with so much of mushy pics. Only if you had posted some pics of your chariot. No travelogue is complete without pics of your car.

Raab Rakha.

Lol!! Hitangshu!!
A very nice travelogue. That comparison, with Henry was good. Even I am in awe of his expression in each of the pics. Lovely, they are!!

I had the opportunity to visit Gwalior Fort in 2007,and if I compare it with the Mysore Fort, I would rate the interiors of Gwalior Fort better and Mysore fort better on the exterior.

Congrats on the addition to the family.

How did you find NH75 - Gwalior - Jhansi? Seems to be worse than in August when I last traversed it.

Gwalior fort is quite nice - I personally LOVE mehrangarh fort, jodhpur - nothing else has ever come as close to it in sheer magnificence and being

Its quite okay - just like any typical half-finished dual carriageway - no real issues except traffic at Tarkanpur (sic), Dabra. Like I said - 3 hours while going, 3 hrs 15 while returning from orchha.

Just drive the stretch on Monday and yesterday. Tekanpur is Ok, just too many barriers. It is the BSF Academy. Dabra has always been a pain, also Datia. What almost got me is a huge unmarked reverse yump (i.e., a depression) as I approached Datia. What I see is then the bypasses for the three major towns Tekanpur, Dabra and Datia are still (early) work in progress. I have been driving this stretch for two decades plus. Used to be just over two hours in its heyday, now is more like 2-3/4 to 3-1/4. Some progress! I am talking from the point the Jhansi bypass joins it.

Saar

aap toh guru ho iss road ke fir

I mean, from a delhiite's perspective what I liked was that the traffic was moderate and it was not completely bombed out roads.

kinda like having no expectations to begin with!
