  3. An uncle of mine was in the service of the Indian airforce. Just before retiring he was posted in Bikaner. He always complained of lack of enough water on phone:) .
    This post reminded me of those days. This is really reaally good news for all the people over there. Bdw, where are u living?

    1. I live in Ajmer somesh, that’s very close to Jaipur and pushkar! If you’re familiar with them. This time Bikaner has had great rains:)

      1. Yeah, I am! I may have been bad at history, I surely know Jaipur, the famous Pushkar lake, Udaypur marble palace and all those places synonymous with the great name of Ranapratap etc..

        Most of my relatives have visited Rajasthan and I have seen those places in photos. I hope to visit those places some day myself.:) When I do, I am gonna drop in at ur restaurant for sure:)

    1. Thanks! kathryn. The rain’s still coming, and now everyone here is watching it with baited breath now. there is a very thin line here between a blessing and a curse, if the downpour continues for much longer it may cause havoc. Keeping our fingers crossed! The baby’s all blessing though:) and making us all very happy:)

  7. Wow. These are wonderful images that brings joy! Beautiful!
