Raise your hands if you waited for Monday Mumbles, yo! (
Can see people rolling eyes and thinking we don’t give a damn).
Today’s question is a very simple one.
Which is that one place you definitely want to visit as a traveler? That one place you would visit if there was only one place you can travel to in this life? (Notice the ‘as a traveler’, it isn’t about where you want to live, just travel and visit).
Unlike most things in life, I am not confused about this. I want to visit Benaras / Varanasi / Kashi. All the pictures that I have seen of this place call out to me. I want to visit and observe the people – the sari weavers, the sages, the people moving in and out of ghats and temples, the people chilling at different corners discussing politics and what not. I want to see where this city gets its spirit from.
I think the only place that would have given a tough competition to Benaras in terms of my answer is Rajasthan. Thankfully enough, I have visited some cities in Rajasthan what with it being one of my hometowns and my school trips to Bikaner, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer (aah!). So, yes, Benaras for now before I start getting double-minded about it and Rajasthan.
Tell me your answers! Which place would that be?
If you want to ask or share anything, please drop me an email at email@example.com and that would be up as the next Monday Mumbles.
