Great job.

Legend has it that if one sees a white mouse at the Karni mata temple its considered to be a very good omen. The first time I saw white mice there, I saw a pair in 2004, then every year till 2009, seeing a white mouse on every visit.

Additionally legend has it that the idol of the goddess was carved by a blind man.
more to read on Karnimata
Cheers

The travelogue's come out pretty well. You've captured every inch of the trip. Pity that your last day didn't turn out quite as expected. But I suspect the foul smell of the rotting rodent didn't do much to help your mood too.

Cheers,

Thanks Sukh, delighted that you enjoyed. While travelling to these places and savouring the sights was of immense pleasure, but to relive the expeirence while recounting and writing was a high & an experience of a different nature altogether...

You have now served your capital punishment. The remaining term is now suspended and you are being released on grounds of good behavior and good narration.

A proper Gyan Paapi as we say in Bengali! Waise, I try & control my temper during our travels as it otherwise ruins everyone's day

Awesome report, ignited the wish to do it.

But from Bangalore 2 + 2 = 4 days to be added only for the journey :(, getting leave will always be a problem.

Thanks Dada. With advancing years my patience levels are going down which is worrisome... What exactly does Gyan Paapi mean? I mean literal translation.

Thanks Arindam. Rajasthan is beautiful and if you've time on your hand then nothing like it. Everytime you get to see something new in the same place..

Yes it's beautiful, I had gone there. A 9-day trip covering Jaipur-Ajmer-Pushkar-Chittaur-Udaypur-MountAbu-Jaisalmer-Jodhpur. But it was on a hired vehicle :(

Well, you knew you were going off in a huff & this would mean that your daughter wouldn't get a chance to see the fort - but you went off anyway. Don't take the term "paap" too literally
