Travelogues

For all the oppressions of imperialisms and colonialism which I can only be an ardent student at best there are the fringe benefits that it bought to the world in as far as man’s abilities to conquering new frontiers and charting out travel routes and we owe the early travellers and their sacrifices in their quest for bounty some acknowledgement of that.

 Look at Ajanta and Ellora caves for instance. Mired in mystery and ambiguity giving way for conspiracy and alien theories. I hope to give you my account of it soon as I am scheduled to visit the remarkable locations soon. And while I am at that I will keep an eye just in case If I ever stumble upon an ever-wandering Ashwatthama the historical figure penalized to that ordeal. One might not recognise him even if he were to present himself with his hollow on the temple of the missing ornament because one is not prepared for such an unlikely event.  Are you sure he is not the Yeti that some has spotted in the Himalayas or the elusive Big- foot in the Americas.
