Hi Laluks,

Since the time I started following T-BHP, there are logs of few people which I never miss out. Yours is one such and I never miss out on any of your Travelogues.

Fantastic photos as usual which takes us on a virtual tour.

O.T: I have a doubt though. How do you manage to get leaves from office? I am finding it very difficult to take leave even for short trips

Thanks narsi for the kind words.

Regarding leaves, that is a trade secret

Ahhhhhh. This is not fair! This is the trade which we all wish to learn. I know that you have been asked this question several times in almost all your travelogues. And your answers are also very consistent. This trade will help lesser mortals like me to live our dreams.

Bhai lalu, kumbh ka trip hai, everything should be crystal clear as are the pure waters of the pious 'sangam'.
Time to share the pearls of your wisdom & reveal one of the most intriguing mysteries of the modern World..

, OK OK, will tell you one of the trade secret.

I make the leave planning for the year by January. Most of the times everything gets planned around that.

Thanks Lalu for sharing the secret . But unfortunately this never works out in my organisation or atleast with me. Whenever I submit my leave plan, I get the standard reponse of "We can't approve long leaves since your availability in the project will be affected". Its the same no matter how much in advance the leaves are applied.

I am still haggling for my leave to make it to Leh this year in August-September. All plans laid but leaves still not approved.
